The Aquitaine region

With a surface area of 10,000 km2, Gironde is France's biggest departement. Its capital, Bordeaux, is also capital of Aquitaine. To the west there is the Atlantic Ocean and its 126 kilometres of coastline and beaches, from Soulac to Arcachon, via Lacanau... Then comes the immense forest protected by the dunes: 480,000 hectares of maritime pine trees, making Gironde the part of France with the greatest area of woodland.

Further inland, you will still find plenty of water, with 3500 km of rivers including 400 km of inland waterways: the Dordogne and the Garonne, as well as Hourtin and Carcans lakes and the Etang Cousseau, one of Gironde's many natural areas.

The Gironde Estuary begins at the headland of Ambes and runs into the ocean between the Pointe de Grave and Royan. It is the biggest estuary in Europe (75 km long and 12 km wide) and the last refuge of the sturgeon, a species currently being reintroduced into the river.

And of course there is the world's most famous wine region with vineyards that seem to go on forever. Both the basis for the local economy and a genuine art de vivre, the wine region includes 57 Appellations d'Origine Controlees.

The Girondin people have a rich history, with medieval wars and the Enlightenment, illustrious writers and ancestral vine-growing techniques. During the wars of the 20th century, Bordeaux provided a refuge for the French governments. All this history is what makes up the Gironde heritage.

Nowadays in Gironde, people cultivate a taste for the good things in life. The economic fabric is diversified; agriculture, high technologies, aeronautics and tourism all cohabit and reap the benefits of the European and international commercial centrepoint that is Bordeaux.

Gironde is all this and much more. The region is naturally welcoming - a place where it is pleasant to live and to visit. When you come on holiday you are spoilt for choice: you can walk along the 2750 kilometres of hiking paths, cycle around the 1000 kilometres of signposted cycling tracks, enjoy the landscape via river and green tourism, discover the history of the region by seeing the 205 classified monuments and 453 listed monuments, or do some wine-tasting on visits to chateaux....

"My family and I have just returned from a wonderful stay at Le Pre Aux Cepes.."

My family and I have just returned from a wonderful stay at Le Pre Aux Cepes.. Well, I can honestly says that superlatives would not do justice to the quality of the accommodation... We arrived after a late flight in the early hours and were fairly tired and subdued, but as soon as we rolled down the drive and entered the property our spirits soared... After spending the next 30 mins arguing over which of the exceptional rooms to take we settled for the night more than satisfied we had a real unique time ahead... The property is ideally situated to explore the Medoc region, from the charming seaside town of Soulac, and miles of quality surf close by.. to the seemingly endless vineyards on the way to Poulac.. It is also worth saying my 5 year old had the time of her life.. From playing in the pool, looking at the wildlife or watching classic kids DVD's available during 'downtime', to the great beaches and dunes. If your looking for a holiday either as couples, or with children; where exceptional standards of accommodation and a location allowing for a varied holiday are paramount, I could not recommend this place highly enough.... Thanks to the Daughtry family for allowing us to stay... Hope to return in the near future.
