What's the appeal?
The Tarn department is to the east of Toulouse (Haute-Garonne) and to the north of Carcassonne (Aude) in southern France. The region is quiet and peaceful, and has several highlights for visitors, including part of the Natural Regional Parc of the Haut-Languedoc which falls in the south-east of the department. Tarn’s climate is a mixture of Mediterranean and Atlantic temperatures, drier than Aquitane to the West but not burdened by the stifling heat of Languedoc, Provence and the Riviera further south. Despite there not being any international airports within the departements’ limits, Toulouse, Carcassonne, Béziers, Montpellier and Rodez all offer regular flights to and from the UK.
