Must-sees in New Aquitaine:


The city of Bordeaux and the most famous vineyards in the world

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine is an administrative region dating from 2016, whose northern and eastern boundaries far exceed the borders of "historic" Aquitaine. This new territory now comprises 12 departments and covers very different ones such as Charente-Maritime, Deux-Sèvres, Creuse and Corrèze. 

New-Aquitaine also includes a number of wine-growing areas, the most famous of which is the Bordeaux region. The great Bordeaux wines of Saint Emilion, Médoc, Graves and Sauternes are world-renowned. Your stay will be an opportunity to discover different appellations and terroirs, and to taste quality wines. The wine route will take you to meet winemakers eager to share their expertise with you. The Cité du Vin de Bordeaux is a must for wine enthusiasts and wine lovers alike. So don't wait any longer and choose to rent a chateau in the Bordeaux region. We highly recommend you to visit the town of Bordeaux as well with its more than 300 historic sites. 


Explore the coastline or the inland

For a break by the sea, head to the Cap-Ferret, with its beaches and oyster-farming huts where you can sample the famous Aquitaine oysters.

Discover the magnificent surf spots on the Atlantic coast. Surfing is open to all levels. Beginners can take an introductory course. The more experienced and adventurous will dream of taking on Biarritz's famous Belharra wave, which can reach heights of between 10 and 15 meters.

But if surfing the Atlantic waves doesn't inspire you and that you're more in the mood for farniente, you can just enjoy the beach and even better the peace and quiet of your castle to relax by your private pool in your luxury rental in Aquitaine and the Basque Country.

If you're more of a nature hiker, why not explore the Kakuetta Gorge in the Basque Country, a lush little setting with a magnificent waterfall as its reward. 

As for culinary specialities, the “Cannelés” de Bordeaux and the “Dunes Blanches” d'Arcachon are to be savoured without moderation. Whether on the beach or around the swimming pool of your luxury château rental, young and old alike will appreciate these local specialities...

Whether on the coast or inland, Chic Villas offers you a chateau rental in the Basque Country that will satisfy your need for a change of scenery. If you choose to rent a chateau in France's Basque Country, you'll also have a wide choice of activities for everyone. 


Must-sees in the Basque Country:


Enjoy the beach and outdoors activities

While some members of the family will enjoy water sports such as surfing, windsurfing or catamaran sailing, others will be strolling along the Basque corniche, a magnificent rocky coastline offering beautiful walks in the fresh air and beautiful panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The Basque Country also boasts some of the region's finest golf courses. After a busy day's sport, you'll be delighted to return to your château and its comfortable en-suite bedrooms. Or just read a book in a sun lounger around the pool.


Visit the most beautiful villages and the town of Bayonne

Last but not least, the Basque Country also boasts some charming villages, from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Espelette, via Ainhoa and Itxassou. Don't hesitate to visit the small local stores where you'll find the culinary specialities of the Basque Country, such as the Espelette chili pepper and the sheep milk cheese. In Bayonne, you will not resist to the famous ham, to be enjoyed with your friends or family on the terrace overlooking your castle before the night, accompanied by a glass of wine, Basque wine of course. Why not try a red Irouleguy AOC Gorri for example? The best way to experience the French culture, isn’t it?
