Stay in a charming holiday cottage in the French region of Midi Pyrenees in South West France. Midi Pyrenees boasts 10 of 'The Most Beautiful Villages in France' such as St Cirq-Lapopie, perched 100m high upon a cliff. There are many historic sites in this region too, such as the pre-historic cave paintings at Pech Merle and the ancient pilgrimage town of Rocamadour. And not to be missed are the caves at Padirac, complete with underground river. If you like to be more energetic, there are plenty of watersports to enjoy on the rivers and lakes including fishing, kayaking and canoeing. Go horse-riding or play tennis and golf and of course there is skiing here in the winter months. Self catering in a holiday cottage provides lots of opportunity to enjoy the local gastronomy. Taste the famous Midi Pyrenees cheese made from ewes milk, Roquefort. This delicious cheese is traditionally matured in caves, a method used since the Middle Ages.
