The rolling hills and picturesque villages of the Gers are a pretty contrast.

For people looking to buy property in the Midi-Pyrenees, going further south, where agriculture is in a decline, means you will find areas of very reasonably priced property. Temperatures are also very pleasant wit very warm summers with cool breezes.

Some of the famous foods of this area are cassoulet and magret de canard, foie gras and Roquefort cheese. Although the foods mentioned are very rich, people in the Midi-Pyrenees generally enjoy one of the healthiest diets in France.


Transport links to the Midi-Pyrenees have recently improved, with budget airlines flying to Toulouse and Rodez and also Carcassonne and Montpelier just across the border in Languedoc-Roussillon. Also, the new A20 motorway means driving down from the North is much easier.
