Tarn-et-Garonne: the name is explicit. This department of Occitania, green and blue, is bathed by the Tarn and Garonne rivers. Spread out around Montauban, it reveals its laughing valleys where charming rivers flow and where you can discover a string of towns and villages with a very rich heritage. From the wild beauty of the Causse and the opulence of the Garonne and Tarn plains, to the gorges of the Aveyron, beautiful landscapes and soothing natural environments await you. Travel the country on foot, by bike, horse or motorcycle, but also on water. This department invites you to enjoy nautical cruises and river tourism on a waterway. The Canal des Deux Mers which links Toulouse to Bordeaux and the greenway which 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 along the water. The Tarn and Aveyron rivers are ideal for canoeing and kayaking. There are many hiking trails, including a section of the Way of Santiago de Compostela (GR65)

The built heritage is the other richness of this region with Moissac, a masterpiece of Romanesque art, Montauban, a city of Ingres, but also three of the most beautiful villages in France and ten villages of character. And since we are in the Southwest, the pleasure of eating is there.

Spring is a very pleasant season with sunshine and average temperatures in the morning around 10°C, in the afternoon around 20°C. The rains are mainly brought by the westerly winds and peak in May.
