The regiontrip continues, we leave on the West coast for this fifth stage: direction New-Aquitaine.
Since the new reform, the region Nouvelle-Aquitaine is one of the biggest regions of France. So you can imagine, there is a lot to do!
There is something for every taste, for every universe and for every style.

A strong historical presence

Lovers of history, beautiful stones and intact conservation: you are in the right place!
New Aquitaine is home to a large number of bastides and medieval villages preserved in their best condition. This is a very good way to discover the region as they are scattered all around. We think of Collonges la rouge in the Limousin, Villefranche du Périgord, the bastide of Monpazier and Sarlat la Canéda in the Dordogne or Monflanquin in the Lot et Garonne.
But that’s not all, we also advise you to visit the typical villages of the Basque Country. And stop in Espelette to taste its famous pepper!
Many castles are present in the region such as the castle of Bonaguil or the one of Roquetaillade.

An exquisite natural panorama

In this part of France too, we can say that nature has been generous. From the caves of Lascaux in the Dordogne, world famous for their paintings from the Paleolithic period, it is not nothing! At the Orgues de Bort in the Limousin and not forgetting the Pyrenees National Park you will not be disappointed. A little extra just for you, make a detour to Artouste and take the little train which is the highest railroad line in Europe.
The cliffs of Meschers sur Gironde south of Royan are also a beautiful discovery. They are made of troglodytic caves that can be visited. To admire the white cliffs of Meschers with the best point of view we advise you to go to the village of Talmont sur Gironde. Finally the gorges of Kakuetta, the abyss of Proumeyssac and the dune of Pilat are a must for the retina.
Finally, if you are looking for a moment of relaxation, far from the routine and frenzy of everyday life, the Vézère valley or the Monts d’Ambazac will satisfy your need to return to simplicity and contact with nature.

Like an air of vacation

New Aquitaine is also the beach, the fine sand and the seaside towns.
Among the unavoidable cities of this region, we will mention first of all on the Basque coast Biarritz, Bayonne (don’t forget to try the Basque pelota during your stay) or Hendaye and Hossegor for the surf lovers. A little higher up, a few kilometers from the beautiful city of Bordeaux, is the Arcachon basin. Finally, New Aquitaine is also home to its wonderful islands. The island of Ré and the island of Oléron are the most famous but the island of Aix and the less known island of Nôle are also not to be missed.

Diverse and varied activities

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region is also a family and lively region.
It gathers an important choice of parks as in particular, the zoo of Palmyre, the valley of the monkeys, the ornithological reserve of Teich but also the island with the birds accessible aboard the Pinasse, the famous typical boat of the basin of Arcachon.
For those who like more lively activities, New Aquitaine is not left out!
It hosts the Walibi park in the southwest, the Futuroscope park but also the mythical Fort Boyard off La Rochelle.

We couldn’t talk about activities without talking about the unavoidable férias! The one in Bayonne, Dax or Mont de Marsan.
We leave on a wine note, it is possible to discover many vineyards in the Bordeaux vineyards. Five circuits are available from Bordeaux.

I hope that the diversity of New Aquitaine has seduced you and that you will enjoy discovering it. See you soon for the sixth stage of our regiontrip!
