The Midi-Pyrenees is essentially a rural area and the leading agricultural region in France, producing a range of different crops such as maize, sunflowers and wheat. It is the largest region in metropolitan France, in terms of surface area, and equal largest in terms of the number of departments covered with a total of eight. The 8 departments in the Midi Pyrenees region are: Ariege, Aveyron, Gers, Haute-Garonne, Hautes-Pyrenees, Lot, Tarn and Tarn-et-Garonne.

Pyrenees mountain scenery is spectacularSimilar to the regions of Rhone-Alpes and the Pays de La Loire, the Midi-Pyrenees was created artificially in the late 20th century to serve its capital, Toulouse. Toulouse is easily the largest city and is situated in the central part of the region. Well over 40% of the total regional population lives in Toulouse and the Haute Garonne department. Tarbes is the capital of the Hautes-Pyrenees department, and although it is the second largest city in the region, it is only a tenth of the size of Toulouse!

  Fantastic Pyrenean walks

The region is extremely popular with skiers with excellent resorts such as Aix-Les-Thermes, Peyragudes, Cauterets, St Lary Soulan, Luz Ardiden, Piau Engaly and Bareges/ La Mongie. Skiing at Luz ArdidenAlthough not one of France's best wine producing areas, the region is host to some sizeable vineyards, located in areas round Gaillac, north of Toulouse, and the Armagnac area.

A few other large towns are Montauban, Castres and Albi. It is also home to the world famous pilgrimage site of Lourdes renowned for its healing waters – after where Madonna named her daughter. For an active experience, explore the Pyrenees National Park for wildlife and great walking, or perhaps visit the fantastic mountainous landscape of the Massif Central, a haven for cyclists, skiers and kayakers. For a more relaxing experience enjoy the tranquil countryside of Gascony
