Located along the Atlantic Coast, bordering Spain and the Pyrenees, Aquitaine is one of the largest regions in France and a popular holiday destination with many attractions in the area of sports, culture, nature and gastronomy. Nature lovers should visit Natural Park Landes des Gascogne, a protected area of pine forest, wetland and oceanic coast with a bird sanctuary at the Bay of Arcachon. The Bay of Arcachon is a large inland sea with a combination of fresh water from the river Leire and salt water from the ocean. The bay is known for its oyster farming. To make a day of nature complete you can visit the highest dune in Europe, Dune de Pilat. The Dordogne is famous for its many beautiful castles, beautiful valleys where you can go canoeing or kayaking on the river, but it is mainly famous for its international cuisine with black truffle and foie gras as absolute delicacies. In regions like Bordeaux, Médoc and Armagnac, well-known wine regions in France, you surely will gastronomically enjoy all during your stay in a villa in Aquitaine. For water sports fans, the Aquitaine is a true paradise! Biarritz is known worldwide as surfers paradise, where many international competitions are held, but you can practice other water sports next to surfing such as sailing, diving or water skiing, everywhere along the coast with beautiful sandy beaches. Aquitaine is easily accessible by car, but you can also fly to Bordeaux or Biarritz.
