The Midi-Pyrenees is so varied in what it has to offer, especially geographically. Even just around Puylaroque, here in the Tarn-et-Garonne, the landscape varies enormously..chalk scrub of the Quercy to the north, the Aveyron Gorges to the south- east and the plains and Moissac with its Unesco classified cloisters to the west.
Remember Maurice Chevalier? Well, Caussade was where all his straw boaters were made! Famous for its hatmakers, each year around the 14th July, Caussade celebrates this tradition with an international hat festival. There are quaint mediaeval 'bastide' villages to stroll through, markets to titillate your tastebuds, restaurants to satisfy gourmets...or even gourmands! For the sporty there is a wide choice f outdoor activities, including canoeing, potholing, rockclimbing as well as gentler activities such as horseriding and hiking.
