Hi All -
I will be meeting my college roommate for a bit under a week in Toulousse in the middle of July. We are ok with renting a car and really just want to find a nice, not touristy "base" to explore the area. Ideally it would be a village that we could stay in for the full time and then just take day trips to various villages - a nice terrace, views etc. Laid back itinerary.
Both of us have been to Provence, the Riviera etc and have no interest in going there again on this trip. We are also not "super crowded beach" people, although a quiet beach might be nice for a day.
We really want some authentic (as much as it gets in July) ideas and places to visit in what I think of as a pretty undiscovered area...
Does anyone out there have any expertise? If so, any itineraries/ideas would be very much appreciated! Thank you!
