South-Western France comprises the regions of Aquitaine and Midi-Pyrenees.
Neighbouring regions are Aquitaine, Auvergne, Lanquedoc-Rousillon and Limousin.
Situated on the Atlantic coast, Aquitaine is the largest region in France with 180 miles of white, sandy beaches stretching from the mouth of the Gironde estuary right down to the border with Spain.
Inland, Aquitaine offers picturesque freshwater lakes bordered by Western Europe's largest pine forest.
There are plenty of breathtaking things to see in the Midi-Pyrénées from the religious sights of Moissac abbey and Lourdes to the wonderful village of cliff-hanging Rocamadour and 13th century 'bastide' of Cordes-sur-Ciel.
