The small sleepy village of Latoue is ideally situated midway between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean coasts, giving easy access to the historic cities of Toulouse, Carcassonne and Albi to the east; Lourdes, Pau and Biarritz to the west; the Pyrenees and Spain to the south; and the wine regions of Gaillac and Fronton to the north.
The nearest airport - served by Easyjet, British Airways and Air France plus others - is Toulouse, which is less than an hour's drive away. Two other airports - Pau and Carcassonne - also serve the area, they are both less than two hours' drive from Latoue.
The village of Latoue is located on the D8, midway between the market towns of Aurignac and St. Gaudens. It is approximately 12 miles from junction 21 of the A64 motorway. It is in the French 'département' of Haute-Garonne (31) and the local area, known as the Comminges, lies between the hills of Gascony and the striking mountains of the Pyrenees.
Latoue has a small bar, which is closed Monday to Wednesday, at the weekend Anna-Marie makes bread and cakes on the premises and can be bought from the bar. Latoue is served by a mobile baker most days, who has a good stock of bread, cakes, croissants, eggs, wine, etc, while all other daily requirements can be obtained either in Aulon, where there is a small supermarket and a post office, a 5 minute drive or in St Gaudens, a ten minute drive from Latoue. In St Gaudens you will find supermarkets, bakers, butchers, greengrocers, newsagents, pharmacy, banks, post office, hairdressers, bars and restaurants.
There are ample leisure facilities available locally. All year round there are festivals and fetes where you can experience the local life and culture at its most relaxed.
Latoue has its own lake, and fishing with a permit is possible at certain times of the year. Or, for the more adventurous, you might like to try your hand at canoeing, cycling or skiing.
