Aquitaine, a region in the south-west of France, has seen its contours evolve during the course of time. Its cultural and natural heritage with a thousand treasures will take you back in time during your visit with its towns, buildings, castles and spectacular scenery.
A region full of character, Aquitaine has seen its notoriety grow thanks to its vineyards and its gastronomy. Its particular geographical location means that it benefits from the oceanic climate: a mild climate where the sun shines in abundance!
The flavours of the south-west will ravish the taste buds of children and adults alike! Come and enjoy its quality products: truffles, oysters, mussels, mushrooms, prunes, or even foie gras – the most famous local speciality in the region.
If you are hungry, or a food lover, take time to enjoy the famous cassoulet (sausage and bean hotpot), duck confit, macaroons and the cannelés (pastries with a soft and tender custard centre and a dark, thick caramelised crust). With these unique-flavoured dishes you will take lasting memories away with you.
Come and find out the secrets of vines and wine during a tasting visit to the wine-growing chateaux. On their land, Château Champion produces St Emilion Grand Cru and an AOC wine, and Château Bernateau, an organic St Emilion Grand Cru and an AOC.
All the chateaux are wonderfully sophisticated, and delightful to visit: when you have explored the storehouses and underground cellars, the wine-grower will offer you a tasting with commentary. Come and see these vineyards, which are famous all over the world, and meet the passionate winemakers too.
Here, with proud, fortified towns and castles, charming little villages and prehistoric caves, the Dordogne has managed to preserve its heritage! You'll also be in a land of fine food and good living, in which wine, foie gras and regional produce reign supreme!
