FROM THE ATLANTIC OCEAN TO THE PYRENEES, the largest region of France has so much to offer

The Nouvelle Aquitaine region in France is located in the south west part of the country and is the largest of all the regions of metropolitan France. From the french Basque Country, home to beautiful sandy beaches and where some of the best waves of the Atlantic coast can be found, to the Dordogne region to the East where some of the world's most famous Paleolithic Art can be found, the region is so diverse that it would take more than a week to just get a small feel of it. 

A great starting point is naturally the city of Bordeaux. The region also boasts fabulous seaside resorts such as Saint Jean de Luz, Arcachon and Royan. To the south, where one of the largest pine forests of France is located, discover medieval towns and villages that will take you all the way to the pyrenees. Here, traditional mountain villages have kept their authentic charm.

Bordeaux City

Wholly revitalized since its so-called “Sleeping Beauty” days, Bordeaux is now one of France’s liveliest cities. A capital of art and architecture, culture and wine in France, the city is located at just over 2 hours from Paris by high speed train. Classified UNESCO world heritage site in 2007, Bordeaux France is separated by the Garonne river into right and left bank and today there are endless ways to discover all that Bordeaux has to offer.

If you’re curious about the city’s restored architecture, recent feats of urban planning and the history of this formerly rundown town, join us on a guided walking tour or a biking tour.
