Bordered along the whole of its west coast by the Atlantic Ocean, Aquitaine is bathed in a mild oceanic climate with the influence of the Gulf Stream. The 2,200 sunshine hours per year make the Bordeaux region similar to the Mediterranean. Along with rainfall that is well distributed over the year, this sunshine is one of the elements which favour vine-growing in Aquitaine. Biarritz has some of the best surf in the world and great beaches such as La Grande Plage which is dotted with striped bathing tents.
There is so much to do in the area (everything except snorkelling because of the surfing waves!) it's impossible to list it all but here are some ideas that may be of interest...Thermal spa at Salies de BéarnThe mountains Golf clubsLocal fishingSurfingSkiing
