Craving a French holiday with a twist? Toulouse, a city just a stone’s throw from the Spanish border, provides visitors with the perfect blend of French sophistication and Latin charisma. Book your flights to Toulouse, pack your case and prepare to be dazzled – this is a city that truly earns its nickname of La Ville Rose (the Pink City), with an abundance of restaurants, shops and museums housed in its famous blushing rose-coloured buildings. Toulouse is far from bashful, however; this is the home of French rugby, after all, and the city is also famed for its variety of lively music festivals that celebrate a myriad of genres and delight tourists almost every month of the year.
Toulouse doesn’t get too hot in summer and stays pretty mild during the winter months, meaning it’s popular with tourists all year round. Spring and summer see the streets come alive with events; music lovers will revel in Toulouse d’été in July and August, a festival that celebrates everything from rock to jazz and classical music. The Toulouse Les Orgues festival in October might also hit the right note with lovers of classical music. If you’re looking for cheap tickets to Toulouse, you might find fares more affordable for December, and in this month you can wander through the enchanting Christmas markets without getting too chilly.
Toulouse Blagnac Airport is buzzing with arrivals from a range of international carriers. You can fly direct from Bristol and London Gatwick with EasyJet, or from Heathrow with British Airways. Flybe caters for Welsh travellers with routes from Cardiff. Fellow low-cost operator Jet2 offers return flights to Toulouse from Manchester once a week, and both KLM and Air France have routes from Belfast, Birmingham and Newcastle, though a stopover is necessary before you touch down in the city.
When your flight to Toulouse lands you won’t have far to go to get to the heart of the action. The airport is less than four miles from the centre of Toulouse, and there are two public buses available to whisk you downtown. Choose from the airport shuttle for €8, or the public bus (Tisseo) from under €2. If you’re laden down with luggage, hop into a taxi; it should cost you from between €20-€25 to get to the city centre.
Toulouse is the stronghold of French rugby, so if you’re lucky enough to be visiting during tournament season and want to impress the locals, get your red and black gear on and come out to support the home side at the Stadium Municipal. Those travelling in July are also in for a treat; as well as the myriad of music festivals on offer, Toulouse hosts an international tango festival every year at this time, so travellers can enjoy a slice of Argentinian flair as they stroll through the city’s picturesque streets .
