Tarn et Garonne

Less than an hour from Toulouse, Tarn et Garonne, land of orchards and the Chasselas grape, provides a wonderful mix of cultural tourism and eco-friendly leisure pursuits. Attractions here include the cloister at Moissac Abbey, the Musée Ingres in Montauban but also the traffic-free cycle path along the Canal des Deux Mers and, the jewel in the crown, the Aveyron Gorge and its stunning villages.
