The south west corner of France is often overlooked by tourists, especially foreigners, that prefer to flood much more popular destinations such as Paris, the Côte d'Azur French Riviera or Normandy. But the region of Aquitaine, as it is called, has many hidden treasures that we will soon discover. It ought to be also said that France is one of the best countries in the world for road trips - the road network is highly developed and signs and indications for tourist spots can be found everywhere.
Our trip starts in Bordeaux, the capital of Aquitaine and its most important city. Bordeaux has an international airport and is connected to France's high-speed train network. Car rental companies are easy to find both at the airport and in the city, renting being quite popular, especially among foreign tourists. Bordeaux is one of France's most beautiful cities, with the whole historical center being included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The town is home to 365 historical monuments, including the Place de Quinconces, one of the largest squares in Europe, the Place de la Bourse, a large open space that features a water surface in the centre, reflecting the beautiful classical architectural style of the buildings, and the Rue Saint Catherine, the longest pedestrian street in France. It is also known as the wine capital of the world, the city receiving over 15 billion euros per years in revenues from wine.
Outside of Bordeaux, Aquitaine is a fairytale land of small typical French villages and romantic vineyards. The landscape is made of rugged hills covered by grasslands and forests - a pleasure to drive on the twisted roads that crisscross the region. A short half an hour drive south of Bordeaux, towards the Atlantic Ocean the Gulf of Biscay, you'll find yourself on the magnificent Dunes of Bisccarosse. This mini-sand sea formed thousands of years ago and the highest dune reaches a height of 80 meters, offering superb views over the Ocean.
Going even further south, towards the border with Spain, we reach the town of Pau. One of the major urban areas of Aquitaine, Pau is a typical French Medieval town situated on the river Gave de Pau. The city has been allegedly inhabited since the Gallic era, today featuring a 15th century chateaux, numerous examples of French classic architecture and a beautiful cityscape with the Pyrenees in the background.
For the final leg of our trip, we return to the coast. After one hour, we reach the famous ocean town of Biarritz. For a long time the capital of French rugby, Biarritz is one of the most fancy and expensive settlements in the Hexagon. The beach and the seafront are relatively exotic, with all the buildings facing the sea built in the same art deco style. The city is also a popular nightlife destination, with numerous casinos popping up in recent years.
