For the children: Take swimming costumes if you fancy a dip; alternatively try your hand on the pedaloes or canoes.

Our recommendations: For water lovers there is sailing, windsurfing or canoeing available on the lake.  The lake also offers plenty of variety for walking or gentle cycle rides.  The Château de la Hunaudaye is well worth a visit.

For the children: Visit the Ferme d’Antan (www.ferme-dantan22.com) in Saint-Esprit-des-Bois, where an early 20th century farm has been reconstructed.
