Tarn et Garonne
Tarn-et-Garonne: the name is self explanatory. This department of Occitanie, green and blue, is bathed by the Tarn and the Garonne. Deployed around Montauban, it reveals its laughing valleys where charming rivers flow and where one discovers a chain of cities and villages with very rich inheritance. From the wild beauty of the causse and the opulence of the plains of the Garonne and Tarn, through the gorges of the Aveyron, are beautiful landscapes and soothing natural ambiences that await you. Travel the country on foot, by bike, horseback, motorbike, but also on the water. This department invites you to experience nautical cruises and river boat holidays on a waterway. The Canal des Deux Mers linking Toulouse to Bordeaux and the greenway that runs alongside it are dotted with picturesque sites and constitute one of the major attractions for tourism in Tarn-et-Garonne. It is a pleasure to discover this territory over water. Tarn and Aveyron are ideal for canoeing. The hiking trails are numerous and among them a portion of the Way of Saint Jacques de Compostela (GR65).
The built heritage is the other wealth of this terroir with Moissac, a masterpiece of Romanesque art, Montauban, city of Ingres, but also three of the most beautiful villages in France and ten villages of character. And since we are in the South West, the pleasure of gastronomy is at its best.
