Aquitaine is found in the south-west corner of France. It reaches Spain at its southern frontier, and the Atlantic Ocean runs along the western edge of the region. The extended Midi-Pyrenees region is found to the east.

For visitors the region falls into three distinct regions

- the forest backed coasts of the western edge, best known for the beaches, surfing, and summer fun

- the countryside of the Dordogne / Lot-et-Garonne departments further inland, and the history reflected in the castles and medieval villages set among the verdant countryside

- the foothills and low Pyrenees, and the numerous typical Basque villages that they contain

Major cities in Aquitaine include Bordeaux, Biarritz and Perigueux.
