Pleasant in Plaisance!

The town of Plaisance du Touch is well named, as the town has an ambience and a climate which combine to make it a very pleasant place to be. Close to the lovely and vibrant city of Toulouse, in the south-west of France, Plaisance du Touch is situated in the Haute-Garonne department, and benefits from this idyllic location with its proximity to the Mediterranean and to the Pyrenean Mountains.

All mod cons

Plaisance du Touch is well equipped with all the facilities you need for a very comfortable modern lifestyle. There are plenty of shops, including the necessities such as pharmacies, hairdressers and supermarkets, and no shortage of amenities such as banks, health care and a range of educational facilities. Of course, the city of Toulouse is only just over nine miles away, so if there is anything you need that you can't find in Plaisance, then you can certainly access it in Toulouse.

Dining out... or in

Plaisance has a number of restaurants and take away shops, so you can order in that pizza and relax after a busy day of shopping or sight seeing and let someone else do the cooking! If you fancy something inspired and unusual for dinner, however, you will find almost any cuisine you can think of in nearby Toulouse, whose range and quality of restaurants is legendary.

Culture and sport

Plaisance du Touch is proud of the exceptional cultural and leisure activities it provides for its residents. There is an active theatre, there are many clubs and associations including nature rambling groups, and a huge assortment of sporting clubs. These include gym training, tennis, basketball, fishing, roller blading, cycling and athletics clubs, so whatever your level of activity and fitness you should be able to find something here to suit!

Golf course and equestrian centre

Plaisance also has some great facilities for those who like golf or horses... the town has a good golf course so you won't have to travel miles for your pastime (or passion, as many golfers would describe it!) and for horse lovers there is a very unusual equestrian facility called the Alternative World of the Horse. Here you can learn the art of western riding, or partake in an exciting discipline called the Trail which involves a real cross section of horsemanship skills.

Days out

The first place to visit on the agenda must be the exceptional African Safari Park at Plaisance. The young (and the not so young!) will love a trip to see the lions and other exotic species in virtual freedom and natural surroundings. Plaisance du Touch is in a great location for further exploration of a very interesting part of France. In under an hour and half you can be dipping your toes in the warm blue waters of the Med, or you could be whizzing down a mountain on skis in the snowy Pyrénées. In between, you have the gentle pleasure of the Canal du Midi, the dark secrets of the Cathar castles and a multitude of beautiful landscapes and picturesque towns and villages.
