The world-famous wines - Grand Cru de Médoc - have indeed justified the legendary reputation of our region. But there is much more to enjoy and discover.
The fine sandy beaches of the Côte d'Argent that stretch for miles, small fishing villages and idyllic seaside areas attract you to the Atlantic Ocean. Surfers will find here fantastic conditions all year long for their sport. Thanks to the pleasant, mild climate centres for naturists and heliotherapy have developed. Furthermore - just four kilometers from the Atlantic Ocean - two large freshwater lakes offer untroubled fun and safe anchorages for sailing and motor boat captains.
The luxurious seaside resort of Arcachon and Bordeaux, our bustling metropolis rich in history, are cultural attractions.
The 10.000 km² of coastal forest along the Atlantic protects the hinterland not only from wind and shifting sand dunes, but forms with its pine trees, pines and oaks the largest forested area in Europe and is an important economic factor for the region. The seemingly endless paths are ideal for riders and cyclists.
In addition to the wonderful wines, the Médoc offers gourmets of the world another highlight: excellent oysters from traditional farms.
