Midi-Pyrénées has more than 50 Bistrots de Pays
all over the region and is one of France’s most active regions when it comes to supporting this venture.
A Bistrot de Pays is open all year round and is sometimes the only shop in the village. It represents an entire way of life, rooted in the flavours of the local terroir and the local social scene.
