Midi-Pyrénées is a large region of France, which has now been amalgamated with Languedoc Roussillon, making it ever larger. Because of its size it offers a huge diversity of landscape, climate and lifestyle. To anyone thinking about buying French property in the Midi-Pyrénées it may be useful to divide the region into three sections to try to differentiate a little between the departments contained in Midi-Pyrénées.
More about Midi-Pyrenees in France
The northern departments of the Midi-Pyrenees, Lot and Aveyron, are very much rural areas enjoying some of the charms of Dordogne but also getting more wild and remote as you head east into Aveyron. The central region of the Midi-Pyrenees, Gers, Tarn and Tarn et Garonne, is best known for its picturesque countryside and ancient bastide towns. Because of the beauty of the architecture, as well as of the landscape, this part of Midi-Pyrénées has more of a bustling feel to it, with so many wonderful market squares in which to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. At Healey Fox we specialise in property for sale in Gers and Tarn et Garonne in central Midi-Pyrénées. Finally heading into the southern part of the region are the departments of Haute-Garonne, Ariège and Hautes-Pyrénées, where the mountains begin to come into view. Healey Fox specialises in homes in Haute-Garonne in southern Midi-Pyrénées, which also boasts Toulouse at its centre making for easy access from most parts of the U.K.
The diversity of Midi-Pyrénées
The diversity of Midi-Pyrénées is obviously one of the reasons why so many people buy a French property in this region. The region is not so well known as the Dordogne but enjoys the same climate. It has wonderful architecture with delightful homes, many at better prices than the coastal stretch of Languedoc-Roussillon and, as it has not been ‘invaded’ by the Brits, it still offers a warm welcome to new arrivals. Choosing Midi-Pyrénées for your home in France will allow you to select from a traditional, rural lifestyle, life in a small market town or even to head for the hustle and bustle of places such as Auch, Agen or Toulouse. Luckily, because of the areas we have chosen to specialise in at Healey Fox you do not have to choose one location and give up any hope of enjoying proximity to the others. These departments boast good, quiet roads allowing you ease of access to explore all the joys of living in this part of France.
