Small hotels in Gascony & Midi-Pyrenees

Selected small hotels  from Lot and Aveyron to the Pyrenees 


Small hotels in Midi-Pyrenees - Gascony - 2023
 Covid-19 info  France is back open for business again but the virus has not gone away. It could still come back. Hotels, large and small, are bound by strict sanitation rules to prevent a resurgence, but there is no such thing as zero-risk. The risks are, nonetheless, mathematically smaller in smaller hotels, with less rooms and less guests, than they are in big hotels. Besides, independent establishments, particularly those that are family-run, have a huge interest in making sure they remain virus-free, as their very survival could depend on it. Many of the small hotels listed on iHi are in small towns and villages, or even out in the back of beyond, where the virus never showed up even at the height of the pandemic.

The Midi-Pyrenees Area

Now part of the larger region of Occitanie, which also includes Languedoc to the southeast, Midi-Pyrenees is the region centred on the city of Toulouse. In the Middle Ages, this part of France was an autonomous state, and in many ways even today it seems a long way from Paris... which indeed it is.The north of Midi-Pyrenees includes the hill country of the Aveyron and the Lot; the middle of the region is the gently undulating plain of the Garonne, while on its southern fringe the region is  mountainous, including most of the French Pyrenees and their foothills. For more on this area see Midi Pyrenees on
   Today Midi-Pyrenees is the western half of the region of Occitanie, and is bigger than Belgium, and includes most of Gascony. Apart from the area round the regional capital Toulouse, it is a very rural area. Among the most visited places in Midi-Pyrenees are the historic cities of Toulouse, Cahors, Albi and Rodez. The most popular holiday area is the high Pyrenees, which form the border between France and Spain.
