To marvel: to be filled with a sentiment of admiration and surprise. Synonymous with wonder, for the wonder in your eyes and smile. Just the right time for a souvenir snapshot!

I marvel

 

What’s your top priority for your holiday? Stunning scenery, villages steeped in history, lively towns, world-renowned sites for you to see with your own eyes, or quirky experiences?

There’s all that and more in Aquitaine

  1. because the region is vast (5 départements, Dordogne, Pyrénées-Atlantiques, Gironde, Lot-et-Garonne and Landes) with a huge diversity of scenery, sites and atmospheres,
  2. it has been inhabited for 400,000 years,
  3. and its unique natural features have been well-preserved, as has its cultural heritage.

Feast your eyes and treat your taste buds in a Médoc wine-grower’s château, try your hand at rock-painting or surfing, sleep in an igloo, contemplate the nuances of the ocean from the highest dune in Europe, or the plain of the Lot valley from a bastide perched on an outcrop. And the soundtrack is beautiful too: crickets in the pine forests, a gently lapping lake, the creaking of your bicycle pedals.

Did you know there’s even a local pastry called Merveilles?
