The Midi-Pyrenees is one of the largest regions in France being nearly the size of Austria. It spans the area from south of the river Dordogne right down to the Spanish border and as such offers an enormous diversity of landscape, lifestyle and property prices. The region includes the departments of Lot, Aveyron, Tarn et Garonne, Tarn, Gers, Haute Garonne, Ariege and Haute Pyrenees. At Healey Fox we specialise in properties in Tarn et Garonne, Haute Garonne and Gers. Each being a beautiful department and an easy-to-live-in area. The climate is warm and sunny for most of the year, access via Toulouse airport or TGV station is easy from most of the UK and the slow pace of life and low population density brings with a quality of life so many of us are searching for these days. Buying a house in Tarn et Garonne is likely to bring you as much pleasure as buying a house in Gers or buying a house in Haute Garonne. The departments are fairly interchangeable and it will just be a matter of finding the very best house to suit your needs. Our partner agents in these departments will look forward to assisting you.
Things to enjoy in Midi-Pyrenees
Toulouse is the only large town in Midi-Pyrenees with one third of the whole population of the region living there. The rest of the region consists of small towns and villages and it enjoys the lowest population per square kilometre of any French region. If you are looking for a rural lifestyle in the sun then looking for a home in Midi-Pyrenees is to be recommended. The region is mainly an agricultural one with fields of sunflowers, wheat and maize plus orchards full of plum trees around Agen. There are very good vineyards to the north of the region and to the east livestock, especially sheep, live on the causses - the dry, limestone plateaux. The Midi-Pyrenees has so many navigable waterways, with two canals and four major rivers there is enough boating in this region for everyone who loves the idea of slowly floating through the watery countryside. If you tire of boats, fishing and swimming you can enjoy any of the twenty plus traffic-free green cycle routes which wend their way through the countryside. It's a region of leisurely boating and cycling, nothing is too rushed in Midi-Pyrenees, even your French house hunting trip will be gentle.
Things to do, things to eat
Despite its rural nature the region has a lot to offer culturally. Amongst my favourites are the amazing red brick cathedral of Saint Cecile in Albi and the Toulouse Lautrec museum nearby but you can choose to come right into the twenty first century with a visit to the Cite de l'Espace in Toulouse. Feeling energetic? Then you can climb the 374 steps of the Escalier Monumental in Auch, go climb a mountain or two, swim in a lake or choose to visit some of the numerous abbeys and churches along one of the three routes to Santiago de Compostella. There is always plenty to do in this enormous region and when you need to refuel you will surely delight in the many gastronomic specialities of the area.The large region of Midi-Pyrenees, especially the departments of Tarn et Garonne, Haute Garonne and Gers are certainly good places to start your search if peace, beauty, sunshine and easy access from the UK are on your list of 'must haves' for your house in France.
