Toulouse seduces by its cheerful lightness and its exceptional cultural heritage. Located between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, the city is surrounded by a wealthy region marked by a long historical, religious and economical tradition. Beautiful churches along the route to Compostelle, nice villages, friendly people and a nature with very fertile soil producing products which spoil the palates make a perfect combination for the “art of living on French way “. But this is not contradictory with modernity to which belong Airbus technical centre, the breathtaking Millau Viaduct or the giant construction of an international centre for cancer research in Toulouse.
