Midi Pyrenees Vacations: Things to see while on vacation in France

Midi-Pyrénées is a region located in southern France that is bordered by other French regions of Limousin, Auvergne, Aquitaine and Languedoc-Roussillon, as well as the country of Spain. Midi-Pyrénées is the largest region in France, which makes it larger than both Switzerland and Belgium. Midi-Pyrénées, France encompasses eight total departments: Lot, Aveyron, Gers, Hautes-Pyrénées, Haute-Garonne, Tarn, Tarn-et-Garonne and Ariège. While Midi-Pyrénées is the largest region in France, over 40% of its population lives in the department of Haute-Garonne. The capital city of Toulouse, or “Ville Rose” (“Pink City”), is located in the Haute-Garonne department and holds over a third of the region’s inhabitants. This city is extremely well-liked by visitors and the region offers many Midi Pyrenees accommodation and Midi Pyrenees gites. Midi-Pyrénées has frequently been called “the region where the living is good” by its over two million residents and thousands of tourists that embark on Midi-Pyrénées vacations each year. On these vacations, tourists book various Midi-Pyrénées accommodation, which in French they are called Midi Pyrenees gites and include cottages, villas, bed and breakfasts, farmhouses and holiday apartments. Midi-Pyrénées is also a popular area to buy a first or second home in because the locals are so laid-back and open to visitors. The name Midi-Pyrénées can be broken up into the words “Midi” and “Pyrénées”: “Midi” meaning southern France and “Pyrénées” describing the Pyrénées Mountains. The Pyrénées Mountains form the southern border of Midi-Pyrénées, France. The Pyrénées Mountains contain the Pyrénées National Park, one of only seven national parks in France. The northern border is formed by the Aubrac and Causses Mountains. Toulouse is not only known for being the home to over a third of Midi-Pyrénées’s residents, but also for its breathtaking sites. The Saint-Sernin Basilique is situated in Toulouse, as well as the Musée des Augustins, both of which are known for their wonderful architecture. Along with the city of Toulouse, sightseers immensely enjoy the city of Albi, found in the Tarn department of Midi-Pyrénées, France. Albi was voted a world heritage site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in 2010. This episcopal city holds the famous St. Cecelia’s Cathedral, which takes up a large portion of Albi and establishes the power that was regained by the Roman Catholic clergy. St. Cecelia’s Cathedral was constructed in the thirteenth century in a unique southern French Gothic style and its bricks are made of brilliant red and orange colors. Albi also holds the Toulouse Lautrec Art Gallery, which is nearby St. Cecelia’s Cathedral. The Toulouse Lautrec Art Gallery contains small and large works of art from all different periods of Toulouse Lautrec’s life.
