For culture connoisseurs

Cultural Odyssey in France’s Heartland



Embrace art, history and gastronomy in the serene embrace of Château Marteret guesthouse.

Journey Through History
Venture to nearby towns, where each cobblestone and historic edifice has a story to tell. The region boasts a rich tapestry of history, with Auch and Pau offering glimpses into epochs gone by, their majestic cathedrals, and preserved medieval quarters standing as silent witnesses to centuries of cultural evolution.

Artistic Endeavors
The Gascony region is not just a haven for natural beauty but also for art aficionados. Dotted with galleries and museums, you can immerse yourself in a diverse range of artistic expressions. And of course, at Château Marteret, art is interwoven into the very fabric of your stay. Every corner, every room celebrates the works of over 20 artists from various countries, offering a curated blend of global perspectives.

Culinary Heritage
No cultural journey is complete without indulging in the flavors of the land. The southwest of France is particularly renowned for its gastronomic gems. Relish the richness of foie gras, a delicacy that this region has perfected. Or let the warmth of a finely aged Cognac, with its complex bouquet of flavors, wrap around you as you unwind in the evenings. Each meal, each sip, is a testament to the region’s storied culinary traditions.

Cultural Highlights in the Region

The area surrounding Château de Marteret is known for its rich cultural diversity and its renowned festivals.

Dive into the vibrant heart of Europe with Tempo Latino in Vic-Fezensac, the largest European Salsa and Latin Music Festival, or be enchanted by the sounds of the internationally acclaimed Jazz in Marciac.

Circus enthusiasts can admire international artists at the Circa à Auch Festival, while country music fans will be thoroughly entertained at Country in Mirande.

These festivals are just a taste of the diverse cultural offerings of the region, which span the entire summer – from La Pentecôta’Vic and Welcome in Tziganie to the Festival de D’Artagnan and many more. Experience cultural highlights that will make your stay unforgettable.
