Gramont is located on a rocky outcrop, overlooking the Arratz valley, the border between Gers and Tarn and Garonne. Surrounded by hilly, green landscapes, with small roads which wind through the hills and small valleys.

A  Gascon  castel

The castle, listed as an Historic Monument, an intrinsic part in the village’s history as the first houses were built for the housekeepers, farmers and gardeners who worked for the Montaut family who were the lords of the castle.
The village was built from limestone, as can be seen in the ashlar houses. It is worth noting that the rock was dug directly, and then cut to form the foundations of the castle ramparts.
It was built during the ‘Gascon castles’ movement and was altered in the 14th century, and modernised to become a Renaissance dwelling.

The mills of Gramont

Gramont owned 5 mills. People came from far and wide to grind their grain in one of the windmills or at the water mill on Arrats. The Havares Manor oil mill used to provide the inhabitants of Gramont with the necessary oil to manufacture alimentary nut or hazelnut oils as well as flax oil for the lighting.
