Swimming and relaxation on the beach
Clairvaux Lake is in fact two lakes, a small one and a large one. If you fancy a swim, head for the big lake!
Its sandy beach, gently-sloping shores and very easy access from the nearby car park make it a delight for families! Young children can build sand castles while the teenagers jump off the huge, 3-level diving platform from a height of 3 metres, 5 metres, or 7.5 metres for the most daring!
More good news: the beach proudly flies the blue flag that promises water of very high quality, both for holidaymakers and for the environment.
And you won't be disappointed with the range of watersports either. The only difficulty is choosing!
A stone's throw from the lake you'll find the picturesque village of Clairvaux-les-Lacs. This resort has everything you need for a successful holiday!
