Try The New Wave style!  

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region will be at the Water Mirror on Saturday 16 June, from 10am to 6pm, to present some of its many wonders and attractions.


What is this New Wave style? Well, it is a kind of vitality that flourishes on a daily basis through a subtle contrast between dynamic and relaxed activities, between open spaces and urban intensity, between innovation and artisanal traditions.

In short, it is an authentic way of life that Nouvelle-Aquitaine, as France’s most attractive region, will be inviting visitors to experience through presentations and workshops. Programme:  games, conviviality, surf and “porcelain graffiti".

Experience the "French California" - it has quite a few surprises in store!
