Bubbling with life the cosmopolitan city of Toulouse, and the countryside beyond, is a must-see location on any car rental tour of South West France. The country's fourth largest city and the outlying Midi-Pyréneés Region offer many sightseeing opportunities for car rental travellers.
No car rental tour of the region would be complete without a trip to Lourdes, the famous place of pilgrimage for Christians from all over the world, and former heartland of the Catholic faith. Car rental is also essential when visiting the 16th century Chateau d'Assier in the town of the same name, or the Gramont Chateau, a gothic castle built in the 14th century and birthplace of Henri IV.
Car rental also comes into its element when travelling to other important towns and attractions in the area. The medieval town of Albi - the home of famous artist Toulouse-Lautrec - is well worth a visit. Nearby Cahors is also highly recommended, with its medieval quarter and 14th century bridge. A car rental journey to the impressive town of Carcassone is a treat too, as this fortified medieval town has UNESCO World Heritage status - nor should you miss the Goya Museum in the rustic town of Castres.
Toulouse car rental is a good idea for exploring the scenic Gascony countryside too, and also the idyllic River Lot Valley - one of the region's best-kept secrets. Or how about driving out to the stunning Pyrenees themselves, for the highlight of your holiday?
Wherever you go in Toulouse and the Midi-Pyréneés region, this lively and memorable area will give car rental visitors the perfect excuse to seek out adventure.
