The Department of Haute-Garonne, despite its ever growing population, still boasts beautiful scenery of undulating hills and valleys.
The region as a whole is a popular choice for an active holiday and the Haute-Garonne is ideal for mountainous activities including biking and walking and of course skiing during the winter. The department has four ski resorts.
If religious buildings are of some interest then the Haute-Garonne will not disappoint. Sites including the Toulouse basilica, the Saint Bertrand-de-Comminges cathedral and the Saint-Just basilica of Valcabrere are on the door-step.
Gascony plays a big part in the department and dishes are based on goose fat or oil flavoured with garlic, shallots, and spices. Goose and duck farms produce foie gras, which is then sold fresh or made into pate and terrines. Nothing is wasted, and the rest of the bird is made into confits, preserves used to make stew and soups.
Life in the mountain villages and farms of the Pyrenees has remained largely unchanged. Their southern climate means that it can be warm and sunny from as early as February. Roads are good and generally well sign-posted, although snow lies on the higher peaks until May and some of the highest passes may be closed. The climate is a cross between Atlantic Maritime and Mediterranean.
Toulouse is France's fourth biggest city and has a very lively atmosphere with a strong student presence. Stroll around the historic centre, walking alongside the Garonne and the Canal du Midi, or stop in one of the many pavement cafes for a delicious cup of coffee.
