Every year, the population of Toulouse and the surrounding conurbation grows by more than 5,500, which just goes to show how attractive the capital of Midi-Pyrénées is. The city is highly prized for its quality of life and for academic and professional opportunities it presents.
With excellent domestic and international connections by air, Toulouse is also popular for its immediate surroundings: the countryside is 20 minutes from the city centre, and the Pyrenees and Mediterranean Sea are just 2 hours away.
Buoyed by the success of its aeronautics and aerospace industry, driven by its young population, Toulouse embraces you in its own special atmosphere of laid-back cool mixed with buzzing activity.
It's a city that is both highbrow and festive, high-tech and down to earth, European and Occitan, where the locals are only too pleased to introduce you to their special way of life.
