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 new friends, I wish to say "thank you for a great time and good-bye for now". I missed saying so to most of you yesterday. all the best (05/2013)
It has been an excellent experience. Totally raw with the bicycles, everything was organized so well (bicycles, housings, local information to eating) that we enjoy every moment of the tour. The explanations of the first day on the part of the guide us turned out to be very useful and to know that always you could rely on the organization it allowed us to enjoy the trip. The tour, on there having no been rolled traffic, is most indicated for people that as us it cannot circulate in road with the bicycle. The way of sirga that accompanies on the channel of Nantes Brest is of a spectacular beauty. It seems of another time, to admire the flowers that adorn the exclusas of the Channel, the villages that you are, a marvel. What more we estimate : All the explanations the day of delivery of the bicycles and of the documentation. The transport of suitcases and last day the taxi up to the village where we had to catch the bus. We come to France without having anything organized absolutely. (09/2017)
