The regiontrip continues, and we’re off to the west coast for this fifth leg: heading for Nouvelle-Aquitaine.
Since the new reform, the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region is one of the largest in France. As you can imagine, there’s a lot to do!
There’s something for every taste, every world and every style.

A strong historical presence

If you’re a lover of history, fine stonework and unspoilt conservation, you’ve come to the right place!
Nouvelle-Aquitaine is home to a large number of bastides and medieval villages that have been preserved in their finest condition. It’s a great way to discover the region, as they’re scattered all over the place. These include Collonges la Rouge in the Limousin, Villefranche du Périgord, the bastide town of Monpazier and Sarlat la Canéda in the Dordogne, and Monflanquin in the Lot et Garonne.
But that’s not all, we also recommend a visit to the typical villages of the Basque Country. And stop off at Espelette to taste its famous pimento pepper!
The region boasts numerous châteaux, including Bonaguil and Roquetaillade .

An exquisite natural panorama

In this part of France, too, nature has been generous. A visit to the Lascaux caves in the Dordogne, world-famous for their Paleolithic paintings, is no mean feat! At Orgues de Bort in the Limousin region, and not forgetting the Pyrenees National Park, you won’t be disappointed. A little extra just for you, make a detour to Artouste and take the little train, which is the highest railway line in Europe.
The cliffs of Meschers sur Gironde, south of Royan, are also worth a visit. Troglodytic caves that can be visited. To admire the white cliffs of Meschers from the best vantage point, we recommend a visit to the village of Talmont sur Gironde. Last but not least, the Kakuetta gorge, the Proumeyssac chasm and the Pilat dune are a must-see for the retina.
Finally, if you’re looking for a moment of relaxation, away from the routine and frenzy of everyday life, the Vézère valley or the Monts d’Ambazac will satisfy your need for a return to simplicity and contact with nature.

As a vacation spirit in the air

Nouvelle-Aquitaine also means beaches, fine sand and seaside towns.
Among the region’s must-visit towns are Biarritz on the Basque coast, Bayonne (don’t forget to try your hand at Basque pelota during your stay) and Hendaye and Hossegor for surf lovers. A little higher up, just a few kilometers from the beautiful city of Bordeaux, lies the Arcachon basin. Last but not least, New Aquitaine is also home to some wonderful islands. Ile de Ré and Ile d’Oléron are the best-known, but Ile d’Aix and the lesser-known Ile de Nôle are also not to be missed.

A wide range of activities

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region is also a lively family region.
It boasts a wide range of parks , including the Palmyre zoo, the Valley of the Apes, the Teich bird sanctuary and the Ile aux Oiseaux, accessible aboard the Pinasse, the famous boat typical of the Arcachon basin.
New Aquitaine is not to be outdone by other lively regions!
It’s home to Walibi Sud-Ouest, Futuroscope and the legendary Fort Boyard off the coast of La Rochelle.

We couldn’t talk about activities without mentioning the unmissable férias! Bayonne, Dax and Mont de Marsan.
We leave you on a wine note, as there are many vineyards to discover in the Bordeaux region. Five tours depart 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 leg of our regiontrip!
