Aquitaine - Europe's California

Alex Posted on 7th August 2015 by Alex

Gemini-2There are a few pretenders to the title "Europe's California" but to our eyes only one destination really merits the name - AQUITAINE, south west France. Long sandy surfing beaches, stylish beach houses, a relaxed atmosphere, nice mix of French & international residents, and people who are into the outdoors, the ocean and healthy living - though not so obsessively as our US cousins, this is France after all! A lovely climate means daytime temperatures hit the 20s in May and stay well above that until late October, and the sea is warm then too. Mid-July to late August is busy and buzzing, outside then calmer but still with plenty of life. Just a 90 minute flight from the UK, and no jet lag! Tempted? Check out fabulous Villas with Pools, Beach Houses and Apartments and Family Parks
