Atlantic Coast and Brittany

Beaches, Dunes and Forest…

France’s Atlantic coast – from Brittany to the Landes via the Charentes area – has a special appeal; towns and landscapes are as varied as it‘s possible to be:

  • The Atlantic Ocean: a gigantic mass of water rocked by the waves and the tides
  • The Dunes: a fragile relief constantly in motion
  • The Forest and the Beaches: best grounds for sports, pleasure and relaxation

Brittany: In the north, this region is famous for its megalithic monuments, the gulf of Morbihan (one of the most beautiful bays in the world), the walled city Saint Malo and its many beautiful islands. Whether as a family or among friends, enjoy an unforgettable moment in Brittany with its “Fest Noz”?, traditions and many culinary specialities including “crepes”, cider and “kouign amman”.

Charentes Maritimes: this area is surrounded by the departments of Gironde, Charente, Deux-Sèvres, Dordogne and Vendée, it includes the islands of Île de Ré and Ile d’Oléron. During the summer months, families flock from all over Europe to bask in the sun, enjoy the coast and enjoy the local seafood including oysters which cultivated here and shipped across Europe.

Landes: this area is part of the Aquitaine region and is surrounded by the French departements of Gironde, Lot-et-Garonne, Gers, and Pyrénées-Atlantiques, as well as the Atlantic Ocean on the west. It is well known for the Côte d’Argent beach which is Europe’s longest, and attracts many surfers to Mimizan and Hossegor each year. The huge maritime pine forest offers a wealth of discoveries including horse riding, cycling and hiking trails.
