Rich history

La Salvetat has a rich history, and is the site of one of the great chateaux that were built in France for the nobility of the time, the Château Raymond IV. The chateau is beautiful, rising majestically above the more modern buildings of La Salvetat, mellow and well preserved. Next to it lies the lovely old Church of St Gilles.

Reds, blues and greens

The colours of La Salvetat Saint Gilles are very striking, with a pallet of reds, blues and greens. The town is typically southern with red terracotta tiled roofs predominating, and the rose pink bricks of the Toulousain area evident everywhere. The green comes from the trees that climb above the town, seemingly from every street and garden, and the blues from the deep azure of the skies which rarely fail.
