The region of Aquitania (or Aquitaine) is found in the south-east corner of France, bordering Spain and facing the Cantabria Sea, in arguably the most stunning areas France has to offer. The region is home to around 3 million people, who live off the fine wines produced in the endless vineyards and tourism the fantastic beaches, nature spots and marinas bring in.
French Aquitania (Aquitaine) is a region formed by the provinces of Las Landas, Dordognes, Gironda, Lot and Garona, as well as the Atlantic Pyrenees. Within these provinces you will find towns and cities such as Biarritz, Bayona, Pau, San Juan de Luz and Hendaya, most of these places with fantastic coastline, and places where tourism is the main economic contributor, together with agriculture and the wine sector.
All across Aquitaine there is stunning landscape, with incredibly diverse environments....the typical Basque-French houses in Iparralde, Bidart, the Labort region, the beaches at San Juan de Luz or the vineyards at Bordeaux. And you'll never be short of things to do.....hire a boat from the port of Biarritz or Arcachon, surf the waves at Biarritz, go hiking in the Gascona NaturePark, go cycling through Las Landas, dive the Mar Cantabrico or visit the roman cathedral and monuments in the region. In the winter theres even the opportunity to go skiing in the Pyrenees....the choices are endless.
