Touristic region on Atlantic coast in France
The Aquitaine - Gironde region is one of the most popular holiday regions in France. It is located on the west coast of France south of Bordeaux. This tourist region extends to the Landes and Biarritz areas. Families with children go there in the summer, and it is popular with seniors in spring and autumn. They have a great time:
- visiting beautiful towns and villages
- cycling through the vast forests and dunes
- beach walks
- visiting markets and festivals
The weather in the Aquitaine
In the summer months there is plenty of sun and the temperatures can rise considerably. Because it is on the coast, it cools down reasonably well in the evening so that the nights are less warm than more inland. In the spring and autumn it is often sunny weather with pleasant temperatures.
