Fancy heading off on holiday with your friends or a city break in mid-season? Come to Nouvelle-Aquitaine! There’s Dax and Bayonne with their legendary parties (make sure you wear the right colour!). The Atlantic Coast or Pays Basque for the surfing. In Bordeaux, split into teams – museums and shopping – and meet up for dinner at Philippe Etchebest. Or rent a house in the heart of Charentes or the Dordogne valley. Decision made: time for a holiday with your mates!
