Map of Aquitaine, France

Holiday France Direct’s Aquitaine travel guide, full of tips and information on this popular wine-producing destination, including its gastronomic culture, places of interest and useful contact details.

Aquitaine is a region blessed with a gloriously sunny climate and a sumptuous landscape of vast forests, snow-capped peaks, vineyards and rolling sand dunes.

The dramatic Atlantic coastline beckons, with stretches of sandy beaches and chic resorts like Biarritz.

Inland you’ll find handsome castles and Bastide towns, along with the classic wineries of Bordeaux – the world’s top wine producing region – superb for a French wine-tasting holiday. And for outstanding cuisine, head to the Perigord renowned for foie gras and truffles.

Admire the breathtaking beauty of the ever popular Dordogne. There’s much to enjoy, from tranquil villages and rivers meandering through miles of unspoilt countryside, to the pre-historic caves of Lascaux.

Aquitaine is divided into 5 departments:

· Dordogne
