Toulouse, capital of France's Southwest, shows you the way to discover the Pyrénées. The second largest mountain range after the Alps and an imposing barrier between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, the Pyrénées are a feast for the eyes. On the winter menu: high-altitude, snow-capped mountain peaks. In the summer: charming, almost fairytale-like villages and astonishing landscapes where well-being, gastronomy, and open-air activities reign supreme.
