Our department "Tarn" and the 2 nearby departments "Haute-Garonne" and "Tarn-et-Garonne" have an abundance of sights, traditions, nature reserves and leisure facilities. In our area, among others, the villages and cities below are certainly worth a visit.

Nature lovers can enjoy the beautiful walking and cycling routes in the area. Some are very close to our property. Detailed maps of different levels are available.

Kayaking is possible on the river Aveyron in the nearby village of St.Antonin Noble Val. For more adventure you can go to Aagac or Cap Découverte, for canoeing, paddle boarding, tree climbing, mountain biking, ...

Paintball can be booked, situated at 1,5km from our house.

There are numerous fishing opportunities in the Tarn and in the smaller rivers and fish lakes. Also available are balloon flights or an ULM airplane flight?

Of course, the wine tastings on one of the many wine estates are not to be missed! During the summer months the winemakers regularly organize “apéro concerts” where a snack and a drink meet music and conviviality, and sometimes also a dance pass! In some villages a "marché gourmand" takes place, a pleasant evening market with local regional dishes and products. And do not forget a visit to one of the local markets!
