Moissac - a town of stone and water

The town of Moissac, which is found in France's lovely south-western department of the Tarn-et-Garonne, is notable for two very distinctive features. One is the Abbaye de St Pierre, with its stone statues and sculptures, and the other is the fact that there are no less than three beautiful and important waterways that grace the town. The River Tarn, running right through the heart of town, the Canal de Garonne and the Canal du Midi.

Friendly and welcoming

Moissac is a friendly and welcoming town in keeping with the traditions of its region, and offers all mod cons and excellent facilities for both everyday life and for relaxation and leisure. There are shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and all the usual amenities that you might expect from a town with a population of around 12,000 souls. The location, which is close enough to Toulouse for commuting purposes if required, is excellent and benefits from good transport links both to the UK and within France.

A three-armed Jesus

The most notable of all the lovely statues and sculptures in the Abbaye de St Pierre in Moissac, is the statue of a three-armed Jesus Christ. No-one knows quite why the sculptor chose to depict Christ in this way, but it is certainly worth going along to take a look and see if you can discover the reason! The Abbaye is also worth seeing on its own terms, as its incredibly carefully designed layout makes it fascinating and well worth a visit.

Water, water everywhere...

Moissac is certainly a town of water, for there are no less than three waterways in town. The River Tarn runs through the centre, and there are also two canals, the Canal de Garonne and the Canal du Midi, the latter being the famous southern canal that links the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. There is something about these waterways, with their laughing crowds of holiday makers in summer and their quiet flow in winter, that adds a character and charm to Moissac. They also of course provide a point of interest and potential for the leisure activities of sailing and walking or cycling along the banks and tow-paths.

Out and about

Moissac lies in a region that has many interesting places to visit, as well as some beautiful countryside to enjoy for its own sake. Places to see include the vibrant rose-coloured city of Toulouse; Albi, centre of the Albigensian crusades and brimful of history; Cahors, with its wonderfully rich "black"' wines to taste; and the intriguingly named town of Condom. Of course, it is also possible to travel a little further and find yourself in northern Spain, or enjoying the fabulous surfing beaches of the Atlantic coast in towns like Biarritz.

How to get there

The international airport of Toulouse offers many choices of airlines and flights from various departure points in the UK, and is within easy reach of the town. Toulouse is currently served by British Airways, easyJet, bmi, Jet2 and flybe. Rodez and Bergerac are also within reach. Rodez is served by Ryanair and Bergerac by Ryanair and flybe. The TGV provides another option for those who prefer to travel by rail, with stops at Toulouse and Agen. Roads in the region are excellent, and travel times are less than you would expect as there are few hold-ups on French auto routes.

Property prices and availability in and around Moissac

The Tarn-et-Garonne is popular as a department for property buyers because of its excellent location, and property prices have risen sharply in recent years thanks to an increased interest in the area, especially from foreign buyers. Prices still bear comparison with other parts of the south, however, so don't be put off if you like the sound of the town or the surrounding area. There are still bargains to be had by those who keep a close eye on the market and are prepared to act swiftly when the right property comes along.
