The Villa Toscane: 4 star hotel in Marciac
Soon in the vineyards of Armagnac, a new 4-star hotel will open its doors in Marciac, a 13th-century walled city, hidden away in the small valleys of the Gers. The atmosphere, its architecture and its spirit render it typical of Gascony, where D’Artagnan was born.
Marciac is also very well-know for its Jazz Festival. Started in 1978 by a group of friends, Jazz in Marciac has become one of Europe's leading festivals. Every summer, from late July to mid-August, some 250,000 spectators come to soak up the irresistible atmosphere and applaud the stars of jazz. Diana Krall, Marcus Miller, Richard Galliano, Sonny Rollins, Wynton Marsalis, Ahmad Jamal and more: these are all outstanding artists who have made Marciac their home from home.On the village square the stage is set for the 'Festival Bis' fringe events, where you can see top musicians perform for free. For jazz-lovers, top-level courses and master classes are also an opportunity to enjoy some amazing encounters.
In Marciac, it's all that jazz!
