Considered France’s sunniest region, it is little wonder that Midi-Pyrénées real estate is snapped up by international property investors.
Originally part of a Roman province, this area was ruled by the Visigoths and Spanish, before coming under French rule. Today, the Midi-Pyrénées is divided into eight departments, each administered by a departmental counsel. Toulouse is its capital.
Among the region’s remarkable towns are Albi and Montauban, known for their vineyards and chic Midi-Pyrénées villas. Well-known attractions include the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, Basilique Saint-Sernin and Cirque de Gavarnie which has Europe’s highest waterfall.
