Serene: synonymous with lovely, radiant, peaceful, tranquil, basking in South-West sunshine. Our festive spirit defines our region, yet there are plenty of places that are ideal for chilling out.

Chilling out


Breathe in: the Atlantic ocean air, that of the forests in Périgord and the Landes, and the national Pyrenean park. Or you can draw inspiration from the museums, prehistoric caves and abbeys.

Breathe out: pedalling along green ways, treating yourself to spa therapy, driving your barge along the canal, honing your swing on the oldest golf course on mainland Europe (in Pau) or contemplating the breeze rustling through the vineyards from your hotel room.

Serenity is also achieved with wonderful service: quality tourism, eco-labels, tourism and handicap, bicycles welcome*: 40,000 professionals are ready to welcome you.
