Bordeaux is now in Nouvelle Aquitaine

The “new” and very big region in the south-west of France that was created on January 1, 2016 by merging the regions of Aquitaine, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes, has finally received its name: Nouvelle Aquitaine, New Aquitaine. It is in some ways quite a good name, even if it feels a bit like it belongs on the other side of the Atlantic.

Nouvelle Aquitaine stretches along the Atlantic coast, from the Spanish border up to the Loire Valley, and includes wine regions like Bordeaux, Bergerac and Cognac. It is the largest region in France. Bordeaux is its largest city with 850,000 inhabitants, the seventh largest city in France.
