Of course, visiting just one place, no matter how popular, will only ever provide you with a glimpse into the wider qualities of a region. So allow time to tour Midi-Pyrenees' other attractions. Albi, lies approximately 2 miles (3 kilometers) to the northeast. Here you can enjoy the Musee Toulouse-Lautrec and Albi Cathedral.
When it's time to spread your wings, why not visit the nearest regional center. Castres is around 25 miles (40 kilometers) away and is home to sights including Musee de Jean Jaures, Stade du Travet and Stade Pierre-Antoine. Ensure you don't rush back to Lescure-dʼAlbigeois until you've visited Castres' Musee Goya and Golf de Castres Gourjade.
This region is known for its fine historic bridges; these are fascinating portals into the area's rich history. Sample a little culture, learning and lore under the bright blue sky at Midi-Pyrenees' open-air markets.
Should you hear the call of the wild, do as the locals do and go mountain climbing or mountain biking. The Lescure-dʼAlbigeois region is a good place to visit to head outside and enjoy the invigorating embrace of winter. When temperatures drop, follow the locals and spend the day skiing or cross-country skiing.
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend what's left of your euros on last-minute keepsakes and say Au revoir / À bientôt to the people you've enjoyed getting to know and the great places you've seen.
