The Midi-Pyrénées can lay claim to being the largest region by area in France and is, in fact, larger than quite a few of the smaller European countries.
In many ways it is quite a contradiction. Largely a rural area, boasting at least three regional national parks as well as one of the countries’ seven National Parks – the Pyrenees National Park - it is still the home to some cutting edge industries, not least of which Airbus, which is based in Toulouse.
It is quintessentially French, yet Spain is never far from proceedings. Literally in this case, as the majestic Pyrenees Mountain range in the very south of the region make up the natural border between France and Spain. To the south, Barcelona is not that far off, to the north on the French side there is beautiful countryside, refined towns, great wine and cuisine to enjoy.
