Stretching over a large piece of land several centuries ago, the Gallo-Roman villa of Montmaurin is undoubtedly the largest Gallo-Roman villa in France! Castles - such as the castle of Merville or Lara, as well as about thirty bastides (such as in Revel or Granada), the palace of the Bishops of Comminges or the prehistoric shelter of Aurignac are all places of interest to visit without moderation!
The city of Toulouse, nicknamed the Pink City, also contains exceptional places, such as its capitol, or its space city and its many attractions! Punctuated by events all year round (including the Printemps du Rire in Toulouse), Haute-Garonne is a lively department, where the reputation of local products - such as foie gras or duck breast - is well established.
On the nature side of things, the department and its central Pyrenees offer a large number of walks and hikes, whitewater activities such as canyoning or rafting, beautiful lakes such as Lac de St Ferréol or Lac d'Oô. Its Canal du Midi also promises a large number of walks, whether on foot or on the water. As for winter sports, the department has 4 ski resorts, including Le Mourtis or Bourg d'Oeuil.
The two spa resorts in the department offer relaxation for all, in Salies du Salat as well as in Luchon, France's 5th largest spa town. The Luchon vaporarium (natural hammam dug into the rock that you can access by going through underground galleries) is to be done, original and unusual!
During most of the year, the weather is mild in the department of Haute-Garonne. If you can't stand the high heat and big crowds of people, avoid the months of July and August. However, the month of May is an excellent choice to visit the whole department allowing you to discover this specific part of southern France in complete tranquility.
