Starting from the campsite we have made descriptions for you of a few walks that vary from half an hour to almost two hours. You can find them on the next page as well as some pictures of what you may see on the way.

There are also various walks in the area about which the local tourist office in Montguyon will happily inform you.

Cycling

Bicycle trips through the rolling landscape of the Haute-Saintonge

The quiet backroads all around the campsite are ideal for bicycle trips. Even with an ATB you will not have to search far to enjoy yourself. Some examples on the page "Cycling".

Some years ago an old railway that meanders through the landscape has been transfered into a 34km long bicycle path between Clérac and Barbezieux (see picture). The local tourist office in Montguyon can also provide a booklet with several trips.

Swimming

There are several possibilities to relax at the waterfron. At only 4 miles from the campsite you will find the locally wellknown Lac Beau Vallon. A swimming lake with sandy beach an open-air restaurant and cute little playhouses for the children.

Lac Beau Vallon is open from early May until late August. Parking and entry are free, but unfortunately dogs are not allowed. We have also made a description of a nice cycle route to Lac Beau Vallon.
