Nous ne nous baignons pas aujourd’hui!

We have new leisure facilities  a mere stone’s throw away from Campagne.

Fishing and sports lake, paddle boarding, boats, quad-bikes, play areas, swimming lake with beach, picnic spots, giant inflatables and these very quirky stone “chairs” all with amazing wrap-around mountain views.

Malheureusement, the weather and the wind in the Quillan area today made all the above activities near impossible; though one or two mad bathers were running into the lake, shrieking, and running straight back out again.

Parc Saint Bertrand

Kirsten, however, was determined to grin and bear this penultimate day of her vacances, despite the inclement weather and the fact that the boys were completely underwhelmed. It’s lovely when it’s sunny……….

    What a shame. We spent the day there on Saturday and it was wonderful. The girls got a bit burned but they didn’t care. And Baz swam too. I just lay and relaxed on the fab stone chairs x

    Sounds so nice! Public facilities are the best. All the enjoyment, none of the upkeep.

    What a tremendous chair – carved, recumbent and made to share – spiffing! The facilities look wonderful. It is something I think the French do particularly well to make les plages inland by lakes and to provide fun for all ages. Often gonflable it must be said! I hope you’ve had a fantastic time with your family and that they are going home with many happy memories 🙂 x

  4. I LOVE the stone thing! One sort of lost in a corner of the garden would look fantastic here 🙂
