Between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenean mountains, Aquitaine offers a mild climate. The region abounds in varied treasures, from the world-famous Bordeaux vineyards to the Dordogne valley and its sumptuous nature crowned by high quality gastronomy, not forgetting the Arcachon basin, its dune du Pilat and its incomparable oysters. The towns of the Sud-Ouest evoke a gentle way of life, in the midst of a population of character, proud of its regional roots and its history. This is particularly the case in the Basque Country, from Bayonne to Saint-Jean-de-Luz, from Biarritz to Hossegor. For several years now, Bordeaux has been at the top of the list of cities where it is good to live, and is attracting more and more people, especially as the new TGV line is shortening distances! Local products are plentiful and contribute to the pleasure of staying in Aquitaine: oysters, Espelette chilli pepper, Agen prunes, Périgord truffles, Bayonne ham... not forgetting a remarkable wine production.
