Welcome to the first of a different kind of travel site - the 123VOYAGE site on the South West of France, adjacent to the Pyrenees mountains and the Atlantic ocean - one of the most beautiful regions in the whole of Europe.
What is 123Voyage?
It is a kind of electronic newspaper/guide where we provide editorial about an area and local people can advertise their products - hotels, other places to stay,
local services and products. We aim to provide an electronic marketplace on the Internet affordable to all. We have started with the South West of France because it is an area we know and love, but who knows where it will end...
Because 1 we provide information on the area; 2 where to stay and how to get there and 3 what to do and what specialities you will find there.
This site is a growing entity, we will be updating it regularly and we are actively searching comments and ideas. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you think that we've missed something out or have something wrong.
Enough about us. Now, about the SOUTH WEST OF FRANCE:
The South West covers the French departements of Pyrenees Atlantiques (64),
Hautes Pyrenees (65), Gers (32); Landes (40) and South West Haute Garonne (31). But perhaps the older names of Pays Basque, Béarn, Bigorre, Armagnac, Gascony, Chalosse and Comminges make more sense to you?
The South West is famous for the coastal resorts of Biarritz, once a favourite holiday spot for British royaty, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Capbreton, Hossegor and Vieux Boucau; and also the major towns of Lourdes, still a major destination for pilgrims, Auch, Tarbes, Pau and Dax; but it is also the host to many charming medieval villages, mountain streams, breathtaking views and lovely valleys.
For the more sporting, the real South West is famous particularly for Golf, Fishing and Skiing - the first golf courses in continental Europe, the best Salmon and Trout rivers in France and the Pyrenees skiing slopes. But there are also many other sporting and leisure activities from Casinos to Thermal spas; world famous and local cuisine, wines and, of course, Armagnacs; there are also listings of Sites & Events in over 150 towns and villages in the real South West - enough to satisfy the most discerning visitor.
