Nouvelle-Aquitaine – region of sea, salt and wines

Nouvelle-Aquitaine, in southwestern France, is a region where history and modern vibes meet. From Bordeaux’s famous vineyards to the sunny beaches of the Bay of Biscay, it’s a place of diverse landscapes and cultures. Here, the Pyrenees touch the Atlantic, and charming medieval towns dot the land. Explore Bordeaux for its world-class wines and stunning architecture, or hit the surf in Biarritz. We visit to feel the ocean spray, hear the waves crash, and get tipsy on the finest Bordeaux wines. It’s a mix of experiences, from prehistoric caves to lively markets and tranquil islands, making every visit uniquely memorable.
