For buying and selling property in Tarn-et-Garonne

A laid back atmosphere

The Tarn-et-Garonne, found in the north-west of the Midi-Pyrénées, has developed from what was once part of Gascony and the now much smaller region of Languedoc. This fusion has created a diverse and relaxed department, which combines the very best of these two cultures.

And a rich environment

There are three rivers making their way through the Tarn-et-Garonne; the Tarn, the Garonne and the Aveyron. Each one provides its own unique setting for watersport enthusiasts. The Tarn-et-Garonne enjoys a steady, warm climate. Most of the heavy downpours which keep the land lush occur in the spring. Most of the rest of the year is rain free with plenty of sunshine. Deep forests and agricultural plains cover a large part of the department due its rich, fertile soils.

Mount Willow

Montauban is the departmental capital and is home to just over 53,000 people. It was originally called Mont Alba, which means Mount Willow in Occitan. There are still a large number of willow trees in the town. There are also lots of museums and ancient buildings to explore in Montauban. Amongst many other fine buildings you can find France's second oldest bastide. The town suffered heavy damage during the Albigensian crusades but grew in prosperity whilst subsequently under Catholic control. As a result, most of the grand buildings in the town date back to this period.

Sculptured to perfection

Moissac is a small and friendly town with just over 12,000 inhabitants. There's at least one very good reason why everyone should visit this town: the Abbaye de St-Pierre - step inside and you won't fail to be impressed at the magnificent sculptures and extravagant layout. The centrepiece is a statue of Jesus. In one hand he is holding the book of life, with another hand he is issuing a blessing and his remaining hand is over his heart. However, no one seems to know why the sculptor gave Jesus three arms and hands!

An ancient settlement

St-Antonin Noble Val is one of the region's oldest settlements and is to be found beneath the towering Roc d'Anglais, alongside the River Aveyron. It makes a great base for exploring the wild countryside and the Grotte du Bosc caves.

How to get there

There is a wide range of airlines flying to both Toulouse and Rodez from the UK. If you'd rather travel by land then the TGV trains are recommended. There is a station in Toulouse, from where you can either hire a car or board the region's own extremely efficient rail network.

Tarn-et-Garonne property prices

The whole of the Midi-Pyrénées has recently experienced a rise in property prices thanks to easier accessibility and increased foreign investment. The market for properties in Tarn-et-Garonne is now very popular with international buyers, the vast majority being families and retirees.
