About this area of the Midi Pyrenees
We can find you properties in the Quercy region between the eastern Lot with its rolling vineyard strewn hills centred on Cahors across to the Tarn and Garonne centred on St Antonin Noble Val and Caylus, famous for its spectacular gorges of the Aveyron, and over to the western edge of the Aveyron, France’s largest department centred on Villefranche de Rouergue. We also cover the beautiful Tarn department in between the towns of Albi, Gaillac and Cordes sur Ciel, the so called 'Golden Triangle', just to the east of Toulouse.
The scenery here is also breathtaking with vistas of green hills and one can see the Pyrenees in one direction and the mountains of the Massif Central in the other. The French Tourist Bureau has designated more ‘Beautiful villages’ in this area than anywhere else in France. Scenery and architecture are very diverse.
Things to do
There is a wealth of things to do and see here. If you’re particularly sporty you can walk to your heart’s content along the myriads of hiking trails, canoe down the rivers, rock climb the gorges or soar over them in paragliders. This is the perfect place for lovers of wild life. There are countless markets to visit, bars and cafes in which to relax and just simply watch the world go by.
Visit the picturesque bastide village of St Cirq Lapopie in the Lot, perched high up on a rocky outcrop overlooking the River Lot. Also Puycelsi and Cordes sur Ciel in the Tarn, St Antonin Noble Val in the Tarn et Garonne and Najac in the Aveyron to name but a few.
For concerts and music festivals just pop down to Toulouse where you will also find great shopping and also the huge Airbus complex at Blagnac airport where they lay on special tours so you can see the aircraft, such as the A380, being constructed.
