Activities/Attractions:  The Midi-Pyrenees area of France overflows with all the ingredients for a perfect holiday away from the beach and fashionable resorts. Uncrowded and uncluttered landscapes, crystal clear rivers, roads free of traffic jams, villages and towns which are masterpieces in their own historical right and regional cuisine which utilises some of France’s most cherished products.

This region has been inhabited by mankind for tens of thousands of years as cave paintings, crumbling fortified towns and medieval pilgrims’ routes testify. The Midi is historical high rise development at its most awesome and most fascinating.

For those who like surroundings which in turn stimulate, entrance and catch the imagination, the Midi weaves a spell. The past and old peasant way of life - despite the exodus of the young to the towns - feels only to be following half a step behind, and casting its shadow wherever you find yourself in the region. Nearby Chateau de Montcru you'll find:

  • Excellent environment, consisting of mountains, meadows and forests
  • Mountain walking or real climbing can be done here
  • The area emanates tranquillity and peace
