Our "carnet d'adresses"

SHOPPING: what's really typical over there?

Food & beverage: preserves of traditional South West recipes such as "Cassoulet", Foie gras (duck liver), duck confit ...

Local specialties: Le Pastel which is an old dyeing plant used since the Renaissance to dye fabrics in a very special shade of blue. La Fleurée de Pastel boutique is located 20 rue de la Bourse in the historical centre of Toulouse.

WHERE TO SLEEP : a few addresses that we particularly like

L'Oreiller d'Adrien in Ore (Hautes-Pyrénées): a refined Chambre d'Hôte in a beautifully 19th century restored mansion. The place is ideal to combine "art de vivre" and exploring the Central Pyrenees. www.oreiller31.com/en/the-house.html
