The pool is almost fully automated and cared for by a dedicated pool team. The pool area is fenced and has a child safety alarm to more than comply with all recent legislation. A changing area is at the pool building, together with a solar shower. We also supply loungers, and some inflatable pool furniture. Pool lighting is in place for evening dips.
Bicycles are provided at the property with panniers; you can pack a picnic and explore the forests. A list of cycleways and routes is available for the many miles of forest tracks.
Lakes and rivers in village and nearby are all well stocked. Ask for licence / ticket details.
Miles of tranquil forest “chemins” to explore together with routes around historical sites.
For the more adventurous there are 2 centres for kayaking in the area; instruction for novices is provided. A great way to see the forest.

You are really spoilt for choice here, particularly off-season. With nearly 100kms of sandy beach to choose from, largely deserted except from July to August, whilst benefiting from sun from March to October you don’t have to beat anyone to a space.
If you decide to stay at the property, the family can amuse themselves with a range of activities - we have Badminton, Volleyball, Table Tennis, Football, (and for those Englishest of us) Cricket.
For artists the area affords boundless possibilities, with both natural and architectural subjects in the forest and surrounding villages.
