Food, castles, canoeing in and around Toulouse!!

Hi all,

I am in need of some hidden gems if you wouldn't mind sharing!

We are a young couple flying in to Toulouse on the 24th June (late night) and flying out on July 5th (my birthday is on the 4th!)

We are starting to look for some ideas of where to go food good local food, wine and maybe a little canoeing / cycling through cute villages. We were thinking of hiring a car for either the entire trip or maybe part of it.

Can anyone help with any of the above or an itinerary - places that have caught our eye so far: carcassonne and Montpellier (I went here when I was really young and have vague but great memories). We are more than happy to include other towns/ cities as well!

A massive bonus would be a gorge of some sort with water running through and possibility of climbing through it! (I am on a quest to find a good one but know it is asking a bit much!)

About cycling: definitely you can go next to Canal du Midi, there is a nice cycling path.. and it's an Unesco Patrimony site!

Nice villages around: check out Cordes-sur-ciel (and Bruniquel nearby), Saint Cirq Lapopie, Rocamadour...and so many little medieval gems :) Some towns worth the visit: Albi, Montauban, Foix (and farther is Pau).

If you go to Montpellier, you can check out Sète as well.

I'm not sure about canoeing, but between Carcassone and Narbonne i know there is some nice places, so you won't have problem in finding it!

Hope that will help you a little!
