Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

This is a large region, which many people loosely describe as south-west France. In fact, much of south-western France also falls within the neighbouring region of Midi-Pyrenees.

The major landmark of north Aquitaine is the wide Gironde estuary. This splits into two major rivers, the Garonne (with Bordeaux on its banks) and the Dordogne. The region has a long Atlantic coastline which ends on the Spanish border near Biarritz and Bayonne.

As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Aquitaine offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses (chambres d'hote), restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
