A land of experiences, in an exceptional variety of locations
Nouvelle-Aquitaine is the largest region in France. It is as diverse as it is surprising, with nature, the great outdoors, vibrant cities and legendary beaches. So, no matter what type of holidays you’re looking for, there’s bound to be a destination for you.
Nouvelle-Aquitaine brings to mind famous places, such as Bordeaux and La Cité du Vin, Lascaux and the Dordogne Valley, Biarritz and the Pays Basque, Poitiers and Futuroscope, Cognac, Pau and the Pyrenees, or Limoges and its skilled craftsmanship.
There is also 750 kilometres of fine sandy coastline, with ports from Bayonne to La Rochelle, or the 110-metre-high Dune du Pilat and islands such as Ile de Ré and Ile d’Oléron.
It’s increasingly easy to get to Nouvelle-Aquitaine. Bordeaux is just a 2-hour high-speed train (LGV) ride from Paris. From Biarritz to Paris, it takes 3 hours 55 min, Futuroscope 1 hour 20 min and La Rochelle just 2 hours 25 min.
The region’s appeal is based on a spirit of sharing, fun-loving, hospitality and on a gourmet spirit, one that embodies the quality of life that you’ll find in our gastronomy and fine dining.
We love sharing this inquisitive and innovative spirit with our visitors.
We look forward to greeting you soon in Nouvelle-Aquitaine !
