Its surroundings

The Nouvelle Aquitaine Region is located in the southwest of France and brings together 3 former regions (Aquitaine, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes).
It is one of the most famous wine and spirit regions in the world and accounts for 20% of the vineyard area of France with Bordeaux, Cognac and Armagnac. It is the largest producer of fruits and vegetables and ranks first for French livestock breeding (cattle, goats…), oyster and foie gras production.
While most of the region’s exports come from the agricultural and food sector, leading industries such as aerospace, chemistry and eco-industry, are important clusters as well.

The Nouvelle Aquitaine region offers a wide range of tourism, sport and cultural activities. You can enjoy surfing on the Atlantic coast, hiking in the Landes forest, visiting the prehistoric sites of the Périgord, trekking or skiing in the Pyrenees, going to music concerts and theater shows throughout the year, and discovering typical French culture marked by its regional traditions, local gastronomy and historical villages.
