Rent a gîte and enjoy the same comfort as in your own home, with a washing machine, a kitchen, house linen and sometimes even a swimming pool.Toulouse is often called the "ville rose" (pink town) because of the distinctive colour of its bricks, a throwback to the Roman Empire.
An apartment in town is the ideal place from which to visit the Capitole, a neoclassic masterpiece. Stop a awhile ate one of the terrace cafés on the square it gives its name to, and anjoy the friendly, relaxing atmosphere.
A stay in South-western France would not be complete without the local cuisine. Its emblematic dishes, the cassoulet and foie gras, are made with regional produce.
If you have a rental in the centre of Toulouse and that you are not driving, why not enjoy a glass of Caillac or Armagnac?
A family summer holiday is not complete without spending time by the water. Admire the basilica of La Daurade, which was built on the foundations of a Roman temple, from the banks of the Garonne. You can also enjoy renting a canal boat (for which you do not need a licence) and cruise down the Canal du Midi, which stretches all the way to the Mediterranean.
