The Owner Recommends


UNESCO World Heritage site for it's cathedral St Cécile and the world famous Toulouse Lautrec museum. It's the departmental capital and has many shops and restaurants. The covered market is worth a visit for the delectable local produce.


Known as the Pink City because of the colour of the bricks in the afternoon sunshine. Situated on the banks of the Garonne it is the capital city of the Haute Garonne department. The Place Capitol is the perfect place to eat or drink, soaking up the atmosphere and watching the world go by. There is the Musée Augustines (religious works of art), the Abbatoirs (a museum of modern art with changing exhibitions), the Natural History Museum and many others. In the summer months the city is home to many cultural and musical activities. There are many shops and restaurants at prices to suit all inclinations. Boat tours, bus tours, walking... something for everyone.

Outside the city centre there is the Musée d'Espace which demonstrates Toulouse's involvement with and history of aviation and space exploration. You can spend a whole day here and leave with fantastic memories.

Toulouse is home to Airbus, and it is possible to view the hangars and aircraft by booking in advance.

Bastide Villages

This area is full of medieval bastide (fortified) villages each with a unique character. Lisle sur Tarn has the biggest area of covered arcades in south-west France. Cordes sur Ciel is perched high on a rocky outcrop - perfect for viewing any marauders. It is home to many artisands and has a Museum of Sugar and Chocolate craft by the master ouvrier Yves Thuries. It is also famous for its wafer thin biscuits, Croquants, made from almonds, egg whites and sugar. A great place to explore, cobbled streets wind this way and that. Many artisans have set up shop here and you can buy anything from original art, leather goods, glassware, jewellery… and of course medieval artefacts.
