Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a narrow window into the broader qualities of a region. So try to set aside some time to tour Midi-Pyrenees' other cultural and natural attractions. Saint Genevieve Church and Place Andre Routier in and around Astaffort, are well worth visiting. Astaffort, is 13 miles (21 kilometers) from Pauilhac. For more things to do, visit the Condom Cathedral and Musee de l'Armagnac which you'll find in and around Condom, about 13 miles (21 kilometers) from Pauilhac.
About 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the east of Pauilhac is Montauban, a regional city where you can visit Montauban Cathedral, Pont Vieux and Musee Ingres. Stade Sapiac, Place Nationale and Montauban Golf Course are other good spots to visit.
Midi-Pyrenees is graced with some important monasteries and other places of worship, ideal places to get a feel for Pauilhac's soul. Enjoy a little culture, learning and lore amid the great outdoors at the region's ever-popular open-air markets.
When you hear the call of the wild, follow the lead of active locals and spend the day hiking or rock climbing. With life so busy, the ideal vacation is often all about finding good places to relax. When it's time to kick back, follow the lead of the locals and have a go at wildlife watching or cycling.
At the end of your vacation, say a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell) to the interesting characters you've met and the places you've spent time.
