About the Area

Treasure for Generations

Located in the South West corner of France, Aquitaine has got it all! Part of the English Empire in the Middle Ages, its treasures were fought over for centuries – leaving a rich legacy of architecture, history and culture. It continues to be envied – enjoying a wonderful climate of four very different seasons, outstanding natural beauty, superb gastronomy and great wines.

A Twist of Sophistication

Whilst it retains the very best of French rural life – strong local communities, a very low level of crime, good old-fashioned values – it also benefits from a twist of sophistication, with highly-rated restaurants, shows and activities.

On its doorstep

Whilst there is plenty going on to suite all tastes, the delights of the Atlantic Coast to the west and the Pyrenees to the south all both very accessible, offering every imaginable water sport and mountain activity for the more adventurous.


Now it enjoys great transport links – by plane, train and automobile, and there are plenty of places to stay whilst you explore the treasures waiting to be found.

So what are you waiting for!!
