Why leave to New Aquitaine ?

The land of surfing and rugby, foie gras and the great wines of Bordeaux, a territorial collectivity born in 2016, New Aquitaine is made up of three regions: Aquitaine, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes.

Preparing for your trip to New Aquitaine

It is the largest of the new French regions. This country in the south-west of France is home, along with the Bordeaux region, to the second largest vineyard in France and to high-quality products: walnuts from the Périgord, apples from Limousin, strawberries from the Dordogne and Lot-et-Garonne, beans from the Arnoult Valley and the Poitou-Charentes Marais, tomatoes from Marmande, not forgetting Espelette chilli pepper, oysters, cheeses from the Basque Country and succulent melons... Something to delight guests on a daily basis and around festive tables. And to finish the meal: Armagnac and Cognac! The neo-Aquitaine landscapes and the built heritage rival the gastronomy. New Aquitaine has 720 km of Atlantic coastline, moors and forests, valleys and peaks, towns with a rich heritage, including Bordeaux, Poitiers and Limoges, castles and prestigious religious buildings. New Aquitaine is rich in preserved nature with three regional nature parks (Marais Poitevin, Plateau de Millevaches and Périgord-Limousin) and the natural marine park of the Bay of Arcachon. In addition, there are many tourist attractions such as the Futuroscope, the Dune du Pilat (Grand Site de France), the historic centre of Sarlat and the historic town of Saint-Emilion, the aquarium of La Rochelle and the zoo of La Palmyre. And how not to evoke Biarritz, La Rochelle or the Ile de Ré. Special mention, finally, for Angoulême, capital of comic books.
