Midi Pyrenees – campsites

Midi-Pyrénées is a former administrative region in the south of France, which has been part of the Occitania since 2016. The landscape is shaped by two mountain ranges: the Pyrenees in the south and the Central Massif in the north-east. The climate in the Midi-Pyrénées, located on the border with Spain, is very warm, so when planning an outdoor holiday, it is worth choosing a sunny camping in southern France.

Natural treasures of the Midi-Pyrénées

The Midi-Pyrénées contain many natural treasures, protected in numerous reserves and the Pyrenees National Park. Among the many pearls of nature, it is worth mentioning the Tarn gorge, the Ossoue and Lutour valleys, the Lac d'Orédon, Gentau, Gaube and Bassin de Saint-Ferréol lakes, and the Cirque de Gavarnie glacier circus. High natural and historical value has the Pech Merle Cave in Cabrerets, with its Palaeolithic rock carvings and paintings depicting animals such as horses, mammoths, bulls, as well as geometric signs, female and male figures and human handprints.

Not only Toulouse

In the Midi-Pyrénées you can enjoy both relaxing in nature and in the urban space. The largest city in the region – Toulouse pleases the eye with its beautiful architecture. Due to the fact that many buildings were built with pink bricks, it is called La Ville Rose, meaning the Pink City. Although Toulouse is the tourist center of the Midi-Pyrénées, it is worth visiting other attractions of the region. History can be drawn while visiting the castles of Foix, Montségur and Castelnau-Bretenoux, as well as numerous monuments scattered in many towns of the region. Particularly noteworthy are the mighty Gothic cathedral of Albi, the Abbey of Conques with adjoining stone streets, the medieval town of Rocamadour built on an almost vertical rock and the 14th-century Valentré bridge over the Lot River.
