The Great Outdoors
The Midi-Pyrénées is essentially a rural area, with beautiful landscapes: hills and mountains where nature holds on to the character of its origins, countryside dotted with valleys and delightful villages, vast lakes and clear rivers, extraordinary places such as the Tarn Gorge, the Aveyron Gorge, the Lot Valley and the Dordogne Valley.
To the south, rises the magnificent Pyrenees mountain range, reaching up to 3,000 metres, forming a border with Spain. Of particular interest is the Cirque de Gavarnie and Ponts d'Espagne.
Many flavours of sporting activity are catered for within easy reach of the B & B - golf, tennis, watersports, cycling, rambling and horse riding, to name but a few.
