The Midi-Pyrenees is a warm, tranquil region with many hidden gems set amidst dramatic scenery, including the limestone gorges of the Lot and the snow-capped splendours of the Pyrenees. Historic towns such as Cohors, Albi, Montauban and Toulouse are a joy to discover.
This is the land of the famous Cassoulet, which never tastes as good anywhere else and what could be a better compliment than a fine Cahors claret. Foie gras and duck are also local delicacies and once you’ve tasted a good “magret de canard” it’s easy to get hooked.
There are a number of pilgrimage spots in the area which served those making the long trek down to Saint Jean de Compostelle, Rocamadour is perhaps the most dramatic, even more so when the Eagles are flying over the limestone valley and Toulouse is the most sophisticated, it’s a beautiful red brick city with fascinating tourist visits and great shops.
There is a good deal to do with lots of lovely walks, excellent cycling and a whole range of exciting activities including canyoning. Road access is very good to a whole host of places such as the Cabrerets (around one hour and fifty minutes by car from Toulouse) where you can see one of the few authentic cave painting sites in France at the Peche Merle cave.
The Midi-Pyrenees is a good region for self-drive holidays at it has a good motorway network. There are direct international flights to Toulouse (TLS). There are also flights to Pau (PUF) and Carcassonne (CCF). Low-cost flight operators to the Midi-Pyrenees include Easyjet, Ryanair and Jet2.
The weather in the Midi-Pyrenees tends to be quite warm with only a little rainfall so you can anticipate using the pool at your villa a good deal. However the further you go into the Pyrenees the more the chance of rain.
