Lovers of wide open spaces, water and nature? In Haute-Loire, many sites, often completely natural, offer places for supervised swimming with high quality water.

Equipped beaches, pedal boat hire, picnic area and playground, sometimes even a small refreshment bar for an ice cream or snack break: everything is done to spend leisure time with your little family and in complete peace of mind.
For those who love to hear the murmur of the river, the Allier and the Loire plunge us into the heart of nature that is still intact. Intimate beaches, a rich and natural setting to savor rare moments and even rest in the shade of the trees in hot weather.
These lakes and rivers are also an opportunity to practice sailing, white water sports or fishing.

"1 body of water, 1 hike, a restaurant" the right plan for a day at the water's edge

For each supervised swimming spot, we have found an easy hike and a nice restaurant nearby.
