About this region
Nouvelle-Aquitaine (French pronunciation: [nuvɛl akitɛn] (listen); Occitan: Nòva Aquitània [ˈnɔβɔ akiˈtanjɔ] or Novèla Aquitània [nuˈβɛlɔ akiˈtanjɔ]; Basque: Akitania Berria; Poitevin-Saintongeais: Novéle-Aguiéne) or New Aquitaine, is the largest administrative region in France, spanning the west and southwest of the mainland. The region was created by the territorial reform of French regions in 2014 through the merger of three regions: Aquitaine, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes. It covers 84,036 km2 (32,446 sq mi) – or 1⁄8 of the country – and has 5,956,978 inhabitants (municipal population on 1 January 2017). The new region was established on 1 January 2016, following the regional elections in December 2015.It is the largest region in France by area, with a territory slightly larger than that of Austria; even French Guiana is smaller. Its prefecture and largest city, Bordeaux, together with its suburbs and satellite cities, forms the seventh-largest metropolitan area of France, with 850,000 inhabitants. The region has 25 major urban areas, among which the most important after Bordeaux are Bayonne (288,000 inhabitants), Limoges (283,000), Poitiers (255,000), Pau (241,000) and La Rochelle (206,000), as well as eleven major clusters. The growth of its population, particularly marked on the coast, makes this one of the most attractive areas economically in France; the new region outperforms Île-de-France and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur in demographic dynamism. After Île-de-France, New Aquitaine is the premier French region in research and innovation, with five universities (Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Limoges, Poitiers and Pau) and several Grandes Écoles. The agricultural region of Europe with the greatest turnover, it is the French region with the most tourism jobs, as it has three of the four historic resorts on the French Atlantic coast: Arcachon, Biarritz and Royan, as well as several ski resorts (most notably Gourette). It is the fifth French region for business creation (all sectors). Its economy is based on agriculture and viticulture (vineyards of Bordeaux and Cognac), tourism, a powerful aerospace industry, digital economy and design, parachemical and pharmaceutical industries, financial sector (Niort is the fourth-largest financial center in the nation, specialising in mutual insurance companies) and industrial ceramics (Limoges). The new region includes major parts of Southern France ("Midi de la France"), marked by Basque, Occitan, Poitevin and Saintongeais cultures. Historically, it is the "indirect successor" to medieval Aquitaine; it extends over a large part of the former Duchy of Eleanor of Aquitaine.

View route collection Along the beautiful castles of the Loire
About this route collection
It is impossible to talk about the Loire Valley without thinking about its beautiful castles. They are inextricably linked, one resonates in the other: on the banks of the Loire and its tributaries, in the forests of the Loire region, in the heart of the characteristic towns or near the authentic villages. .. they are all symbols of the French Renaissance. Showpieces of the Loire region include the castles of Chenonceau, Chambord, Amboise, Nantes! But there are many more to visit. Some, still inhabited, castles make you dream about life as it used to be.
The majestic Loire is one with nature and crosses a very varied landscape. The Loire is fascinating, amazingly beautiful, relaxing and has many surprises in store. Part of the Loire Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a very attractive destination.
Enjoy beautiful landscapes in a protected nature reserve. There are four natural parks in the Loire Valley (Parc Naturel de la Brenne, Loire-Anjou-Touraine, Parc de Brière and Parc Naturel du Perche) where rivers flow through rolling green landscapes.

View route collection 7 day roundtrip from Girona to Catalonia Andorra and the Pyrenees
About this route collection
The Pyrenees stretch for more than 450 kilometers from the Bay of Biscay in the west to the Cap de Creus on the Mediterranean. The mountain range, with peaks of more than 3000 meters, forms a natural barrier that separates the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of Europe. The main ridge of the mountain range also largely forms the state border between France and Spain, while the miniature state of Andorra lies between these two countries.

Bordering the Pyrenees is Catalonia, the hinterland of Barcelona. No wonder many new models of motorcycles are being introduced to the press in Catalonia. There are many ways to put the new models to the test there. An additional advantage is that it is very quiet! You would almost say 'too quiet' because there is a danger that you will use the entire width of the road at some point, under the guise of 'you won't see oncoming traffic here' .... But let's keep it safe and stay on the right side of the center line.

These seven routes of this collection run through these beautiful areas. These are all routes where especially the sides of the tires have to endure a lot. Whether on the gentle slopes in Catalonia or on the balcony roads in the Gorges in the French Pyrenees, make sure they are on tension, because you can bet it will be exciting!

A few attractions are discussed per route in the review. These often tell something about the history of the area in which you are driving. Fun facts, quite educational. There are also indicated places where you can refuel and where you can drink coffee and / or have lunch. You are completely free to visit these places, you can of course also determine your own interesting points.
But the most important thing you've probably traveled to this area for is simply driving. And as mentioned above, you are in a true motorcycle paradise where the steering is fantastic!

Each route ends at a hotel. It is of course not an obligation to use these hotels, you can always look for another place to stay in the area, that decision is yours. However, my experience is that they are all simple but good hotels for a very reasonable price. They are known and can be booked at booking.com.

The routes of these collections:

R01 - Girona to Sant Julia de Loria, 269km
R02 - Sant Julia de Loria to Pierrefitte Nestalas, 290km
R03 - Pierrefitte Nestalas to Barbastro, 291km
R04 - Barbastro to Puig Reig, 266km
R05 - Puig Reig to Figueres, 268km
R06 - Figueres to Quillan, 243km
R07 - Quillan to Gironam, 286km

Have fun riding these routes!

View route collection Four great tours from Lusseray
About this route collection
These tours depart from the holiday home in Lusseray in Poitou-Charentes. This region in the west of France consists of four different departments, namely Charente, Charente-Maritime, Deux-Sèvres and Vienne. Each of these 4 departments is visited.
Nature is varied. Vast landscapes, forest areas, coastlines and wetlands. The many sunflower and grain fields stretch over the rolling hills. At the very heart of the Cognac region you will see endless vineyards dotted with white limestone. But also historically and culturally you can still find many traces of a rich past that dates back to Roman times.

View route collection 24 Magnificent routes in France
About this route collection
That France is one of the most beautiful and best touring countries is beyond doubt. It offers an incredibly varied landscape with good roads and a pleasant climate. It is not for nothing that you see so many motorcyclists there. My previous collection of 25 routes in France (25 Magnificent routes in France) were based on the route descriptions from the Motorbike Guide France part 1 made by Bert Loorbach.

This collection of 24 routes comes from Motortourgids France part 2. With this collection a difference has been made between approach routes and motorcycle tours in a certain area. The approach routes can also be used in combination with the routes from Motortourgids France part 1

The routes are sometimes slightly adjusted based on the tips that Bert Loorbach gives in his description, or because of a different place to spend the night, or to achieve the minimum length of 2 hours for the MRA Library. For each route there is a more detailed description in the review, including options for accommodation or places of interest along the way, which are also indicated with a POI and, if possible, with a short description.

Two or more routes have been made for a number of areas, such as Burgundy, Auvergne, The Alps, Tarn and Cévennen and Nord-Pas de Calais. These routes can be nicely combined in a multi-day trip.

View route collection 25 Magnificent routes in France
About this route collection
This MRA route collection contains 25 beautiful motorcycle routes in different parts of France, such as the Ardennes, Alsace, Vercors, the Drôme, the Ardèche, Cote d'Azure, Gorges du Verdon, the Ariège, the Dordogne and Brittany.

The routes have been carefully made by Bert Loorbach, who himself is an enthusiastic motorcyclist. He lived in France for a year and a half and during that time he focused on mapping the unknown and beautiful roads of France especially for motorcyclists.

The routes are bundled in the Motortourgids France part 1 of Kosmos publishing house and now also available in MyRouteApp.

I have taken over the routes in MRA and sometimes adjusted something to make them even more interesting for the motorcyclist.
