The Midi-Pyrénées region
The region offers a delightful combination of magnificent rivers, rolling hills, sunflowers, orchards, vineyards and forest. On the route to St Jacques de Compostelle, Moissac in the Tarn-et-Garonne is famous for its Romanesque abbey and cloister. Close by are the rosy pink cities of Toulouse, Montauban and Albi (birth place of Toulouse Lautrec).
This is the 'land of the bastides' - the medieval villages which are an outstanding feature of south-west France. Lauzerte, Auvillar, Beaumont-de-Lomagne, Cordes, Bruniquel and St. Antonin-Noble-Val are all within easy reach. To the west are Bordeaux and its famous vineyards and to the east the vineyards of Gaillac. To the south lie Gascony and, beyond, the mountains of the Pyrénées.
This is one of the sunniest area of France. In July and August temperatures average 27°C.
Moissac is a charming market town with some good food shops, restaurants and cafes (and not many tourists). Market days are Saturday and Sunday. It also has a good selection of boulangeries, supermarkets and banks. Through Moissac flow both the river Tarn and the Canal du Midi. In the summer, there is water skiing on the river and boats and bikes can be hired for trips along the Canal. There is a cycle route along the Canal (the ‘vélo voie verte du Canal des Deux Mers’).
Close by is the lake at St Nicolas-de-la-Grave where there is canoeing, sailing, windsurfing and horse riding. Bikes can be hired in Moissac and there is also horse riding at Lauzerte. For children there is a water park (Walibi) near Agen.
There are two 9 hole golf courses nearby. One is at Roucous, near Castelnau-Montratier and the other at Espalais, near Auvillar. Both are about 30 minutes drive.
The local village of Durfort Lacapelette (3km) has a boulangerie, a small supermarket and a tennis court.
