With the Atlantic on one side, the Mediterranean on the other, and anchoring Spain to mainland Europe, the long stretch of Southwestern France holds plenty to discover. The immense Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Occitanie regions are a must for nature enthusiasts. Here, the snowy caps and endless hiking trails of the Pyrenees, signature curves of “Tour de France” cycling routes, and miles and miles of pristine coastline invite one and all to slow down and enjoy everyday life. In a land of countless impeccable wines, Bordeaux and its expansive surrounding vineyards are indeed heaven for oenophiles, though there is plenty of room on the table for the many excellent biodynamic wines in Occitanie or sparkling wines from Limoux. With top-tier libations comes equally ranked gastronomy: truffles, Roquefort cheese, foie gras, and caviar, to name a few of the area’s delicacies. And if you like history, you’ll love these regions laced with UNESCO towns, immaculate topiary gardens, and the footprints of Charlemagne, Henry IV, and Maurice Ravel. From Bergerac to Toulouse, Lourdes to Montpellier, Southwestern France is ready to fill your cup, get your heart pumping, and soothe your soul with a spectacular endless horizon—from one coast to the other.
