The climate of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine is one of the sunniest outside of the Mediterranean coastal areas. The sunny summer weather is ideal for families with young children because gentle onshore breezes help to prevent the oppressive heat that you can find on the Mediterranean coastline. Average summer temperatures are around 28-30°C.

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, in the south-west of France, is less well-known than other holiday regions of France, and we love it for that reason. Life here in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine is simple and sedate, perfect for a relaxing peaceful holiday, and ideal for an affordable family holiday.

The region has many kinds of natural beauty, from the Atlantic coast, to the undulating green hills inland, to the foothills of the Massif Central. If you are looking for beaches, there are many swimming lakes with lake beaches, as well as the beaches of the Atlantic coast. If you are looking to explore nature, the gentle inland scenery provides great opportunities for walkingcycling and horse-riding. If you are looking for culture, there are many historic towns, chateaux and monuments to visit. If you are simply looking to relax with your children in peaceful surroundings then Nouvelle-Aquitaine is the perfect spot for you.
