Aquitaine Holiday Rentals France


 Aquitaine

Bordered along its western side by the Atlantic Ocean, Aquitaine bathes in a mild oceanic climate and the Gulf Stream. For the mild year-round climate, it needs the right amount of rain for its flourishing greenery, and the bright sunshine so as to enjoy the beautiful beaches, and a fine Spring and Autumn, ideal for hiking in the mountains or in the wooded valleys ...

The Aquitaine coast has been carefully saved from excessive urbanisation. So between the well-known resorts, 250 km of coastline offer many sandy beaches for surfing, lazing around, or relaxing at a spa.  The ocean currents and winds have gradually formed a long strip of dunes along the coast, met by the fresh waters of many rivers that come up against them. A succession of large lakes has taken shape, a paradise for sailing… and the migratory birds!  But that's not all: Aquitaine also provides a lovely recreational area for hikers, skiers, and people who like fast-flowing waters or breathtaking views.
