Destinations

Whether it’s culture, nature, adventure, fun, or epicurean delights, it’s not only possible to find something for everyone in this region – one is somewhat overwhelmed by the choice.

In the following pages, we take a closer look at the key internal destinations that make up this extraordinary patchwork that is Nouvelle-Aquitaine.

We take you to the city of Bordeaux and its famed wine area along the Garonne. The Dordogne welcomes visitors with its wild nature and glorious rural settings. Along the Atlantic coast and in Biarritz-Pays Basque, the endless sandy beaches and dunes welcome lovers of surf and sun from around the globe. The Charente Valley and Cognac country are more than just home to the famed eau-de-vie, but are also breath-taking in their natural beauty. When it comes to heady heights, there are few places to cap the Pyrenees. The ancient city of Poitiers and the nearby Futuroscope complement each other through their contrast. Want to try the best steak in France? The Limousin will not let you down. And as a place to relax at the end of an epic journey, the Marais Poitevin is just right.

Something for everyone? More than that – there’s plenty for everyone.
