The Midi-Pyrénées region

A very ancient and medieval part of France, the Tarn et Garonne is marked by hilltop Bastide towns bisected with gorges and rivers that provide a dramatic backdrop to your holiday. This is farm country with Spring, Summer and Autumn providing fresh fruit and vegetables. Local markets will give you the chance to taste the region's delicacies - foie gras, saucisson, local produce, meats and cheeses. Jamie Oliver recently featured the nearby market town of Limogne en Quercy as part of his Channel 4 series in the summer of 2010. Finally, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the appeal of Gaillac wine, another local treasure.


Nearby activities include canoeing and kayaking down the Aveyron -- there is an abundance of companies to hire canoes from, even ones that will arrange a picnic for you on the banks of the river. There is fishing at a nearby leisure lake. St. Antonin Noble Val boasts one of the region's best market on Sundays and the Limogne market occurs on the same day and is famous for its Black Truffles. There are many good cafes and restaurants in every town along with an Art Deco cinema in St Antonin showing current English films.
