A drive in the Midi Pyrenees from Gers, to Ariege

The Midi Pyrenees south of Toulouse and Agen is a lovely area to discover. In a cross country drive - the village of Fourcés, with its chateau, and arcades, near Montreal and Condom; - the castellated village of Larressingle with a medieval playground; - the Abbey of Flaran - with magnificent impressionist and art exhibition; - the cathedral at Lombez, with tower and lovely carvings in the choir; - and finally the Church cut into the rock at Vals, near Pamiers.
