If you're a watersports fanatic, then a beach holiday in Aquitaine must surely appeal. Aquitaine's Atlantic coastline offers great resorts such as Biscarosse and Mimizan where you can surf and sail. Mimizan is also a great centre for walking, biking and orienteering whilst at Biscarosse, there's swimming and fishing in the lake. There are also interesting nature reserves along the Cote d'Argent - visit the Arjuzanx National Reserve to see overwintering cranes. Add to this delicious Aquitaine cuisine - foie gras, sea trout, poultry and local kiwi fruit and asparagus - plus colourful festivals.
