Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Nerac
Nerac is a small town in Aquitaine and it is a popular destination for tourists. Once a politically significant town as the capital of the historic Albret region at the northern edge of Gascony, today the main highlight of the town is its magnificent castle. Nerac has a population of approximately 7,000 and a moderate climate, typical of south-western France, with summers that can be expected to be pleasantly full of sunshine. Nerac is proud of being the home of foie gras, a world-famous speciality of the region. Foie gras is a type of delicious pate made out of goose livers. Many other towns in the region claim to be the place where foie gras was invented, but Nerac is the place where this claim is generally held to be true - it was first mentioned in a document recording the dish prepared for the Duc de Richelieu in 1769. To really make the most of exploring this region and the town of Nerac, hire a car, ensuring you complete flexibility for your trip.

Attractions in Nerac
No visit to Nerac would be complete without a boat trip along the lovely stretch of the Baise river which flows by the town. You could also enjoy a gentle stroll by the banks of the river and head through the lovely Parc Royal de la Garenne, a former royal hunting ground with several fountains - it's a good place for a picnic!
Other local highlights include the weekly market which is held in the town square every Saturday morning, a great place to buy delicious locally grown fruit and vegetables, as well as specialities of the region. From May onwards, there is also a fortnightly flower market.
Lud'O Parc is a short drive from Nerac's town centre and is a popular attraction for families. From July to September, you can enjoy wet and wild fun in this water park with a historical theme - it's filled with basins, waterfalls and slides in charming reconstructions of Gallo-Roman ruins with pillars and temples galore. There is a huge range of activities, including large rubber rings to slide down chutes and a choice of aqua exercise classes. With free parking on site all day, this is the ideal holiday leisure activity for all ages.
Most visitors to Nerac are drawn to ruins of the Chateau Henri IV. Only one wing of the original castle remains, but this is well worth a visit as it houses a museum about the castle's history and a guided tour of the castle is highly recommended. The square outside the chateau is the ideal location for a spot of lunch and there is also a very good restaurant nearby, Le Bistro de la Cave.
