Ariege is described by most travel writers as wild but accessible. This is a good description. Walkers on the 3000 foot peaks can occasionally encounter bears, and there is top class trout fishing, kayaking and walking in the area. Also, for those interested in cycling, there is a stage of the Tour de France starting in Areige.

The Aveyron and Tarn valleys can also offer fabulous fishing, cycling, skiing, potholing and golf, but Aveyron is most noted for the pre-historic ruins especially at Najac, and fortified chateaus, as well as the world's tallest bridge, the Millau viaduct. Also not to be missed on any Midi-Pyrenees holiday are the Roquefort Caves, or the gothic Ste-Cecile Cathedral at Albi.

For gastronomic delicacies or culture, Lot villas and the surrounding valleys are the place to find truffles, goose, duck and dark Cahar wines to finish a feast prepared from a self-catering holiday cottage. The traditional fairs and music festivals in Gers are vibrant and fun for individuals, couples or families.
