The Midi-Pyrenees region

In this area of natural beauty with meandering rivers, hilltop villages and historic towns you can enjoy both stunning countryside and impressive architecture.

Au Ciel Bleu is perfectly located to discover the cultural wealth of this sunny part of South West France.

Cordes-sur-Ciel (30 mins) is one of France's biggest walled medieval cities. The city is the jewel amongst the Albigentian hilltop villages, and is well worth a visit. Sunflower fields and rolling hills will line your way and local wine growers will always invite you to a glass of wine.

From Au Ciel Bleu one can visit no less than nine of France's official 'most beautiful towns and villages', each one of them within easy distance, like Najac in the Aveyron department, Puycelci, Castelnau-de-Montmiral in the Tarn department and Bruniquel in the Tarn-et-Garonne department.

A day in Albi is a must, with its impressive cathedral and quaint streets. And if you like shopping, this is the place to go.
