Looking for remarkable landscapes, historic towns, picture-postcard villages and challenging active pursuits? Then a holiday in the Midi-Pyrenees is just what you're after. In terms of urban culture, the pretty capital of Toulouse is not to be missed, nor is Cahors with its famous Pont Valentre bridge and Figeac with its local markets. And as for the villages - Conques, Belcastel, Larressingle and Rocamadour (to name but a few) have to be seen to be believed.
The Grands-Causses region is full of gorges and valleys to explore, the Gers department is famous for its sunflowers and tranquillity, or you could take on some serious climbing and hiking in the Hautes-Pyrenees. And don’t forget the Ariege, home to rolling landscapes, popular cycling routes, the castle in Montsegur and the medieval town of Mirepoix and the spa town of Ax-les-Thermes. From north to south and east to west, the Midi-Pyrenees is an idyllic destination for a memorable holiday in France.
