About Midi-Pyrenees

Click to find out more about Midi-Pyrenees
Midi-Pyrenees

The Midi-Pyrenees in the heart of south west France is the largest region in the country. From the Pyrenees to the valley of the Dordogne and from Gascony to the Gorges du Tarn, the diversity of its landscape is equalled only by the wealth of its heritage. This stunning area is renowned for its innate sense of celebration and visitors are often surprised by its friendly spontaneity.

Midi-Pyrenees is only 1.5 hours by plane from London and the Toulouse airport connects to many internal and international destinations. Paris is a 5 hour journey by TGV train, and as in most of France, the road network of motorways and dual carriageways is very good.

If you are looking to escape from todays' 'rat race' and looking for an easy going and more gentle way of life in preserved surroundings, look no further than the majestic Secret Soul of France.
