Surrounding countryside offers forests with great walks and mountainbiking, Tarn river villages and wonderful architecture. The 'pink city' of Albi with the largest brick built cathedral in the world is 45 minutes' away. It has the Toulouse Lautrec museum, wonderful medieval buildings, and splendid river views and walks - plus great cafes, restaurants, and shopping including a big Saturday morning fleamarket. The city of Toulouse, (about 50 minutes' drive) is a good mix of style, charm, and culture and you can park under the central square for a couple of pounds! For anyone wanting a bit of sea air the Med is just over a 2 hour drive via the motorway. In winter the Pyrenean ski slopes are also about a 2 hour drive; local residents often have a day out skiing.
