Le Mas d'Agenais Base Information

An old Roman town Le Mas D’Agenais is full of history. Make a stop on the Saint- Jacques de Compostelle way where this area has played a huge part in the historical change of the country. The Mas d’Agenais was lost and gained several times during the crusades against the Albigeois People, and was under English possession during the 100-year war. It then became French again and Catholic, taken by Admiral Coligny.

Our base offers showers, toilets, and parking. Parking in the open air is free of charge.
