The Best Spot For A Selfie in Nouvelle Aquitaine

Where is the best spot to take a selfie you might ask yourself whilst on holiday here at Gone Fishin Aiguillon just 1hr from Bordeaux.

Perhaps we could suggest a good selfie would be your catch of the day around our carp lake if you were a fisherman.

But To be honest our guests love a day out down at Arcachon close to the bustling city of Bordeaux.

Go climbing the Grande  Dune du Pilat, this is the tallest sand dune in Europe.
