Enjoy a taste of French rural living in a cottage rental in Aquitaine. Self catering holidays give you the freedom to come and go as you please and enjoy all that this lovely region has to offer. Aquitaine is particularly well known for its wines - St Emilion, Graves, Medoc, Margaux, Bergerac and Monbazillac are some of the great names from here. Equally famous are Aquitaine's pre-historic caves whilst the Dune du Pilat near Arcachon is the highest in Europe at over 100m. Head for the coast for surfing on the Cote d'Argent or enjoy Biarritz with its beaches, casino and thalassotherapy, just 30 minutes from the border with Spain.
