Visit the riches of Nouvelle Aquitaine with Trainline

France’s largest region, Nouvelle Aquitaine (External link), may be most famous for Bordeaux (External link) and its vineyards, but it has many faces.
With 466 miles of fine sandy coastline, the 360 foot-high Dune du Pilat, and islands like the Ile de Ré and the Ile d’Oléron, the Atlantic coast of Nouvelle Aquitaine is definitely an ocean-lover's playground.
Not to be outdone, the lush nature of the area blooms in Eden-like slendor, from Dordogne and Lascaux to the Pyrenees and the Cognac region.
The cities and towns of the region are also ripe for exploring. From the provincial city of Angoulême (External link) to the seaside resort of Biarritz (External link), this south-west region should be savored like a fine wine. Admire the Old Port of La Rochelle (External link), nicknamed the White City because of its vanilla-coloured buildings.
