The Midi-Pyrenees region

The largest region in France, Midi Pyrenees is an essentially rural area, stretching from the highlands of the Massif Central in the north, to the crests of the Pyrenees, on the Spanish border, in the south. Its capital and only big metropolitan area is Toulouse, on the river Garonne.The region also has sizeable vineyards, such as in the areas round Gaillac, north of Toulouse, and  the Armagnac area, which lies partly in Midi-Pyrenees, partly in Aquitaine. At the southern end of the region, the Pyrenees, rising to over 3000 metres on the Spanish border, offer all the attractions of a high mountain area - in both summer and winter. This is real mountain country, where wooded foothills give way to mountain pastures and open terrain at higher altitudes. This area is popular with skiers in winter, and with ramblers and other outdoor enthusiasts in the summer months; it also containes one of the few National Parks in France., as well as the world-famous pilgrimage centre of Lourdes.

The Tarn is an area which has plenty of diversity - forests, mountains, vineyards, alluvial plains and which benefits from its proximity to Toulouse and Montpellier.Rich in historical heritage, discover castles, churches, museums and the bastide towns built in the 13th century to encourage settlement of empty areas before the Hundred Years War.The Tarn covers the Sidobre which is part of the Parc Naturel du Haut-Languedoc, known for its stunning granite formations.This same granite is used in modern buildings today, i.e. the Arch de la Defense in Paris.

Cahuzac sur Vere

Chez Mouret is a delightful , 6 acre peoperty located in a small hamlet, Andillac (15 mins to Gaillac) 2 kilometers from Cahuzac sur Vere, although small it offers two bakeries, a renowned butcher, a small supermarket, a hair and beauty salon, an ATM machine an Auberge and Sports bar, a Tabac and an express Pharmacy.

Holiday makers who are drawn to vineyards and a rich variety of wines won't be disappointed. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy skiing (Pyrenees, 2 hrs) hiking, cycling, kayaking and horse riding all within easy reach.

"wonderful stay!!!"

Guy and Erica were absolutely wonderful hosts. They responded very quickly to every request and gave us excellent tips on what to do in the area. We went kayaking on the Aveyron river and did a lot of sightseeing. The kids loved the pool and the table tennis. The whole property is finished to very high standards.

"Lovely Duras!"

We stayed in Duras for 2 weeks last summer (2012) and we had a wonderful time there. The gite is beautifully decorated, immaculately presented with lots of attention to detail and it had everything we needed for our stay. We had a great time relaxing by the swimming pool (our kids 6 and 8 loved it!) or out and about in the rural countryside. Erica and Guy were very welcoming and helpful with lots of suggestions for visits. All in all we had a lovely holiday in Duras with its idyllic surroundings and kind and friendly hosts. We couldn't recommend it more highly.
