Aquitaine Travel Helpers
Ask Beausoleil a question about Aquitaine
We've traveled extensively in the Aquitaine area, usually renting a gite (country cottage) for a month in different places. We're particularly fond of the Dordogne region or Perigord and if you've read any of the Inspector Bruno books, you will want to visit. It's the land of fois gras, caves and prehistoric art along with excellent wine and amazing food.
