Albi, more of a large town feel than a city, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and also has the largest brick built building in the world (the cathedral). The old quarter it is very picturesque with some lovely boutiques and 'salons de the' (Au Moulin a Cafe is highly recommended) and of course, you will be in Toulouse Lautrec territory (birthplace) so don't miss the new museum/gallery dedicated to his life and work. Very pretty, quaint, oozes style, charm and history with lots of chic shops and restaurants.
