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.

                                                              What a view!

                                                              Stayed late in August in this lovely apartment for a week. The apartment had everything we needed to make this a home from home. Outside it was roasting but inside the apartment was lovely and cool. We ate outside on the covered terrace. When we needed a dip to cool off we had a choice of swimming or paddling in the river or a dip in the local outdoor pool that was a delight to Swim in whilst looking a the most astonishing view. A view you never get bored of, which is a good job because this is the uninterrupted view that the apartment has. The apartment is well equipped. Beds are really comfortable. Great to have a washing machine and dishwasher. Freezer for your ice and ice cream . You are minutes from the centre of the village, river beach and pool. Prefect location. St Antonin is a really beautiful village with plenty of places to eat and drink. However the Sunday market is my favourite experience. Amazing produce, we carried back to the apartment and enjoyed on the barbecue for serveral days! The cheese is delicious. Good local wines to wash it down with! We visited Albi, Cahors both of which were worth while and easy to get to. We hired a car from Toulouse. Plugged in the sat nav and had no problems finding out way ! Think if you want to get out and about a car is essential but if you just want to canoe or fish or just relax in St Antonin you can. We did the four hour canoe trip from the end of the road. The views were lovely and you don't need to be a canoe expert to do it. However, you do need a reasonable level of fitness. If you have a partner who loves to fish as mine does then you can get a licence and fish from the garden! We will be going back to this lovely apartment, to relax ,fish (l'll relax my partner will fish) and enjoy the view.

                                                              Wonderfully comfortable and quiet

                                                              We enjoyed a relaxing stay in this beautiful spot with lovely walks in accessable countryside as well as daytrips to the enchanting cities of Cahors and Moissac. The house is spacious – more than enough space for 4 of us - and very well equipped, with new bathrooms and very comfortable beds. The house is in a hamlet with only a handful of houses and a church, with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. The secluded courtyard garden off the kitchen dining room was a pleasure to unwind in over a glass of local Malbec wine!
