Traditional gites in Gascony

Gascony is not a territorial division of modern France; it was a historic principality in the Middle Ages, and later became part of the Province of Guyenne. Generally speaking, it includes land southwest of the river Garonne, excluding the Béarn and the Basque country. Most of historic Gascony now lies in the Midi-Pyrenees region (this page) , a part of it in Aquitaine.
