Lakes & Rivers
We have a small river on site which is great for paddling and river walks and even dam building!
If you would like to cool off and have a swim, there are lakes at Champagnac-le Vieux ( 10 minute drive) and La Chaise Dieu ( 25 minutes) which have allocated swimming areas and a lifeguard during the summer.
Canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting and fishing are all also available on the Allier River. Or alternatively, take the Allier Gorges Train, one of France's best known tourist trains along the gorge, where there are no other means of transport, passing through 53 tunnels up step slopes and along high ridges. A fantastic way to see the gorges with spectacular views.
