In this dusty rose-colored city canvassed with clay roof-topped homes, beautifully trimmed parks, a river and a canal that runs through it and the occasional accordion music, I have been lucky to live the real southern French experience in Toulouse. Toulouse is called “Le Ville Rose” (the Pink City), named after the pink bricks used in constructing the homes. Like most modern cities in Europe, Toulouse is infused with the old and new. There are chic neighborhoods with stores like Hugo Boss, Blumarine and Longchamp, but nestled between these boutiques is an old patisserie whose owners are from a long lineage of patisserie owners serving the scrumptious sweet tarts of the region…
Toulouse is a destination for so many Parisians who yearn for a slower paced life, and it is now a destination for many travelers who decide to stay because they recognize the same je ne sais quoi.
