Aquitaine

The Aquitaine region is located in the southwest of France. The region's capital city of Bordeaux is roughly 350 miles from Paris. Bordeaux is easily accessible via TGV rail.

Aquitaine is one of France's premier wine growing regions. Varieties include Margaux, Medoc, Sauterne, and Saint-Emilion among others. A visit to Aquitaine/Bordeaux is a delight for the wine enthusiast.

Aquitaine is a region of wide open spaces and includes Europe's largest untouched forest. The region is also home to some of France's best golf courses.

History buffs and followers of royal intrigue will be taken with Aquitaine's past. A former duchy ruled by Eleanor of Aquitaine (wife of both Louis VII and Henry II of England). Eleanor bore ten children one of which became known as Richard the Lion-Hearted. Eleanor was considered one of Europe's first feminists and was also one of its first romantics.
