Between Land and Sea, from Bordeaux vineyards to the Basque Country via the Arcachon Bay, Aquitaine offers a wide range of landscapes and flavors to the traveler who will take the time to discover it.
Rather flat around Bordeaux and near the Atlantic Ocean, the roads become steeper towards the Dordogne or approaching the Basque Country and the Pyrenees.
Land of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of France before becoming Queen of England, the southwest of France is renowned for its art of living and its traditions. Local products and wines are the pride of its inhabitants: foie gras, canelés, oysters, Armagnac, Sauterne wines, Graves, Saint-Emilion, Grands vins de Bordeaux … many names and appellations that make the taste buds salivate !
Culture and art are not left out with many festivals and exhibitions during the summer season, highlighting local history but also contemporary artists. As for heritage, the many castles but also the cities of character will make you travel back in time.
Many greenways cross Aquitaine and more broadly the southwest. With vineyards as far as the eye can see around Bordeaux, through the preserved natural reserves and along the ocean beaches, the Vélodyssée and the Canal des 2 Mers by bike invite you to cross the region on signposted and secured routes. More than 1000 km of cycle paths on 52 greenways, the largest regional network in France!
If the beaches of the Southwest attract many vacationers every summer, it is largely thanks to the semi-oceanic climate that is relatively hot compared to the rest of France. The winters are mild and in summer the temperature regularly exceeds 30° C in the afternoon. In autumn, the south wind sometimes brings dry and rather hot weather for the season.
Given the extent of the region, it is difficult to enjoy all its attractions at one time:

Hello, We had a fantastic stay. Overall, we are very satisfied and recommend Brittany (...) Eve, Marie, Per-Anders and Ulf What we enjoyed the most: The good weather Pleasant hotel The good food Good equipment, good bicycles (08/2018)
Now that we are home and recovering from jet lag we would like to thank you and Davide for making it such an enjoyable trip despite the rain. The routes were very carefully crafted and gave us good views on safe roads and trails. The GPS was very easy to follow (...). The bikes were very good and performed without problem and the panniers and handlebar bags were the best we have encountered. We think that the combination route that we created with your help gave us good variety in the time we had allowed ourselves. (...) We will certainly recommend Abicyclette to anyone interested in seeing Bretagne on a bike. (...) Thank you again for a wonderful trip. Will and Marilyn (09/2017)
That was really the best vacation we ever had! Where should we go this summer? I would love to do another trip this year. Do you have any great itinerary ideas for us? We have 7 inches of snow here right now, and the temperature is MINUS 5 degree F. with a windchill of MINUS 19! Chilly!! xxx (07/2009)
