Think of Gascony and you may just think of long sandy beaches, Atlantic rollers and miles and miles of forest. All of which is true and if surfing is your thing then you certainly won’t be short of a wave or two. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that Our Gascony and Gironde region stretches down France’s Atlantic coast from La Rochelle to Biarritz, with elegant and grand Bordeaux at its heart. As well as Bordeaux’s famous wines, the region is perfect for sampling Cognac, Armagnac and the dangerously drinkable Pineau des Charentes!
Away from the vineyards, the Atlantic dominates – with perfect beaches for surfing, backed by dunes (including the astounding Dune du Pilat, Europe’s highest sand dune, rising over 100m just south of Arcachon), and hundreds of kilometres of cycle tracks winding through the shady forests beyond.
Our resorts are perfectly placed to get the best from holidays in Gascony. Their locations are close to fantastic beaches and surf. There are many facilities and activities on hand, including fantastic golf courses and horse riding, as well as the resort water parks and entertainments. And all make great bases for exploring inland.
