    There’s not just one Gironde – there’s a whole range to choose from!

    Atlantic Gironde...

    With its majestic estuary, unspoiled coastline, maritime pines, great lakes, cycle paths alongside the ocean, and of course the famous Arcachon Basin, an inland sea bordered by Europe’s highest dune, the Great Dune of Pilat (105m).

    Inland Gironde...

    Renowned for its world-famous vineyards, Médoc, Pomerol, Saint-Emilion and Sauternes, as well as its remarkable architectural heritage, including Romanesque churches, fortified mills, mediaeval castles and Renaissance citadels. Discover these treasures by car, on foot, by bike, on horseback, by boat or by canoe.

    Sporting, cultural and festive Gironde...

    With its marathon, international surfing and riding competitions, jazz festivals, theatre, dance and music events, and its carnivals, you'll never experience a dull moment!

    All the colours of gourmet Gironde...

    Come experience the bustling markets and village festivities, full of bistros and open-air cafes, with a wealth of local traditions faithful to the art of living as practised in the Southwest.
