 Aquitaine - land of water!

Streams, rivers, lakes and the Atlantic Ocean have created a countryside that is with its variety of landscapes and natural charm absolutely unique and spellbinding for everyone.

The families who have lived here for centuries have learned to live with water: they drained the swamps and created enchanted harbours, picturesque marinas and rich oyster beds.

They are proud of every visitor who manages to climb Europe’s highest dune to discover the breathtaking beauty of their scenic region.

Welcome to the Aquitaine... and fall in love with paradise!
