Small hotels in Midi-Pyrenees
part of the larger region of Midi-Pyrenees-Languedoc, 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
