Private car with driver

by bossysooz

I have a friend coming to visit in Bozouls. She is flying into Toulouse and would rather not wait three hours for the next train to Rodez. Does anyone know of a car service that would pick her up at the airport in Toulouse and drive the hour and a half to Bozouls?

Picked this off the Toulouse airport website

http://www.toulouse.aeroport.fr/US/ff_pagesEditos.asp?idpage=1303

the prices made my eyes water - I would have a few beers and wait for the train. After all, by the time you retrieve your bags and get into town there's an hour at least gone already.

Thanks, yes it is expensive. Not only did it make my eyes water, the potatoes in the kitchen are crying.

I will leave it up to my friend. She has been through a rough patch and may choose to luxuriate for a couple of hours.

Are you familiar with Toulouse? Where is Ikea? (now that is a tourist question if I ever heard one)

Walk along la Garonne when the sun is going down and the lights are coming to life! La Place Saint-Pierre! Among the best places to see a football (soccer) game (especially The World Cup!) or a Rugby game!

Sunset

by Klod5

Un de mes lieux préféré est la Promenade Henri Martin (dédiée au peintre impressionniste toulousain du XIXe siècle). Sur les quais de la Garonne, aménagés pour les piétons, des espaces de gazon, des bancs, permettent une promenade, romantique ou pour se délasser. Dès les premiers rayons de soleil, les toulousaines viennent se dorer à l'abris du vent. En été, c'est aussi le lieux pour admirer de superbes coucher de soleil sur la Garonne

One of my places favorite is the Promenade Henri Martin (dedicated to the toulousian impressionist painter of the XIXe century). On the embankments of the Garonne, arranged for the pedestrians, of the spaces of lawn, of the benches, permit a walk, romantic or to relax. Since the first sunbeams, the toulousian womens comes to turn a golden color to the shelters of wind. In summer, it is also the places to admire of superb sunset on the Garonne

Prehistoric art, mountans and caves

by Spincat

Toulouse makes a great base for many adventures. We visited the Grotte de Niaux, and deep under the Pyranees we saw ancient paintings of bison & horses.

Do not attempt to visit the Grotte de Niaux unless you have booked the cave tour well in advance: you won't get a place. Fax-booking-form at: www.ariege.com/niaux (Tel: (33) 05 61 05 88 37): you'll get prompt reply- it is run most efficiently. Tours are in French, except for a few in the summer.

We took the train from the main station in Toulouse all the way to Tarascon - a journey of about an hour twenty minutes. Soon the Pyranees rise around you and you pass through the beautiful town of Foix.

So there we were: at Tarascon station, with no idea of whether there would be a bus on the village of Niaux and its cave. ...
Indeed there wasn't : it was Sunday. The village of Niaux is abot 5 or 6 kilometres from Tarascon - walkeable. We'd only gone about 200 metres when we were offered a lift. (Same thing happened on the way home - thank you, nice French people!)

Once at the village, it was a 20 minute climb (head for the church, turn left at sign) up a paved road to the cave itself. Price 9.40euros for adult, 5.70 euros kids: advance booking.

We travelled a kilometre underground, along what looks like a petrified underground beach. Our guide was excellent and we each carried a flashlight. Slippery & steep - and occasionally narrow - you need good shoes and to be relatively fit.

Deep inside, you see the rock art: vivid depictions of horses, bison and deer - how they might have looked in flickering torchlight - how they might seem to move.... how shapes & cracks in the rock might suggest the contours of animals. We noticed how the drawings seemed to be in the parts of the cave with the deepest echoes.

The whole journey would be easier if you hired a car in Toulouse - but then not such an adventure!

I should add that there is an 'Auberge' in the village of Niaux. A soft drinks machine at the cave itself but no food : take a picnic.

If you like 'Foie Gras' then you've come to the right heaven! The menus are so neat and affordable that you wouldn't believe it's true. Wine is excellent, a vast choice
with 'market' pricing!
Service is very good, music and ambiance are lovely.
One word: GO!

Musée Georges-Labit

by mikey_e

The Musée Georges-Labit is easily one of my most favourite museums in the entire world. It is by no means a large museum - in fact, it is the size of a small house with the ground floor and the basement housing exhibits. Rather, what struck my fancy was, first of all, the unusual design of the museum. It is an institution dedicated to exotic cultures and artifacts, and the building in which it is housed lives up to this mission. It looks like something out of old Cordoba, a wonderful Moorish structure in the middle of a garden filled with palm trees and other semi-tropical fauna. The museum is names after Georges Labit, a late 19th century traveler who collected objets d’art from Asia and Africa and brought them back to his native Toulouse. The collection is therefore quite unique, at least it seemed that way to me, because it didn’t focus on the usual cultures that usually spark the fancy of curators. Certainly, there are pieces from India, China and Japan, as well as an extensive collection of Egyptian artifacts. However, a large portion of the collection comes from Nepal, Tibet, Mongolia, Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand, countries with long artistic traditions and high sophisticated cultures that are usually ignored in “Arts of the East” exhibitions in order to make room for Indian deities and Japanese calligraphy. Although the Egyptian chamber is impressive, the ability to really have a taste of the ways in which other Asian cultures were influenced by, and distinguished themselves from, India and China is perhaps the best part of the Musée Georges-Labit.
