Toulouse & Toulouse Airport are pick up and drop off points for campervan & motorhome hire & rental vehicles

Toulouse is the capital city of the department of Haute-Garonne, and of the region Midi-Pyrénées, in southwestern France, and has a popularion of circa 440,000.

Over the past 20 years Toulouse has become a centre of aviation and spaceflight, and more than 35,000 of the inner city's 440,000 citizens work in the civil aviation or space industries; Airbus Group (formerly EADS) is the largest employer in the region. Thankfully the city has remained relatively unchanged despite the economic boom.

Toulouse, on the Garonne river, is on the site of an ancient Roman settlement; even today many of the smaller streets follow their Roman counterparts and many of the red brick buildings are of a pseudo-Roman style. These buildings are also what gives Toulouse its nickname La Ville Rose (The pink city).

In the middle ages, Toulouse was one of the richest cities in France due to the sale of blue colouring (pastel) extracted from woad plants. This monopoly was only broken when the Portuguese began to import Indigo to Europe.
