For a glimpse of traditional life in southern France, a visit to Touffailles in the Tarn-et-Garonne region is certainly recommended. Traversed by the rivers Tarn and Garonne, from which the region takes its name, here youíll find a landscape of eclectic landscapes: plains, hills, orchards, wild gorges and beautiful vineyards. Touffailles itself is set in a secluded valley with panoramic views across ancient woods and sunflower fields. Cycling, hiking and horse riding through the countryside is definitely one of lifeís simple pleasures. With a boulangerie and grocery store in the village, and supermarkets, pharmacies, cafes, bars and restaurants in nearby Montaigu and Lauzerte, youíll have everything you need for your stay. For a lovely day trip, visit the nearby town of Cahors and the regionís capital: Mountauban. This town of red brick, on the banks of the River Tarn is bursting with art and history. Whilst there, indulge yourself in the local delicacies: Chasselas grapes and duck specialties.
