Aquitaine is one of the largest and most diverse French regions. Its area stretches from the foot of the Massif Central to the border with Spain. Due to the large area, Aquitaine is very diverse - you can find there mountains, hills, the sea, forested areas and vineyards. In addition, you can visit amazingly beautiful cities - Bordeaux and Lourdes.

Aquitaine is a region that tourists eagerly visit. They are attracted by the beauty of landscapes, as well as the ruins of medieval castles, fortifications, fortified churches that are remnants of the Hundred Years' War. An additional attraction are the wide, sandy beaches washed by the waters of the Atlantic. Many people also make pilgrimages to Lourdes, which is a place of worship. However, Aquitaine is primarily a tourist region. We will find many different centers there that ensure a comfortable stay. One of them is Camping Le Lac de Sanguinet , which is located in the picturesque town of Sanguinet, on the most beautiful lake in Europe - Cazaux-Sanguinet.

The flavors of Aquitaine

At Camping Le Lac de Sanguinet there is a fast food bar , where we can eat, for example, a baguette or a croissant. In addition, ice cream, coffee and cooling drinks are also served there. However, when we want to eat a typical French meal, we have to go to a nearby restaurant in the town of Sanguinet. There we can try regional wines (eg Bergerac, Médoc, Bordeaux) or drink stronger drinks (eg Gascon, Armagnac).


The south of France, where Aquitaine is located, is known for its fish, meat and vegetable dishes. While relaxing there, try the famous bouillabaisse (fish stew with herbs, orange peel and saffron), ratatouille (made with eggplant, zucchini, juicy tomatoes, garlic and onions) and brandade (salted cod puree with milk and olive oil). The most famous French dessert, on the other hand, is crème brûlée . It is prepared with egg cream, cream and sugar, then sprinkled with caramelized sugar.

And, as befits France, it delights wine connoisseurs - this is where the region with about 8,000 wine estates (châteaus) is located, i.e. the world-famous Bordeaux.
