Canoeing

This is a brilliant family activity, one which we have enjoyed with our family many times over the years. You can choose the length of time you want to spend on the river (2 hours, 4 hours, etc) and there are 2 person canoes and 1 person kayaks available. Take a picnic and dock on one of the little beaches along the way for lunch and make a day of it!

Wine tasting

We have some lovely wine Domaines local to us where you can try and buy whilst chatting to the people who have produced the wine. One rather special one is the 'Pique Nique Chic' at the Dome de Seigneurie de Peyrat, a short 10 minute drive from the apartment. Have a tour of the domaine and then enjoy a lazy lunch of olives, cheese and charcuterie in the shady courtyard of these 17th century buildings whilst tasting the various wines on offer. The charge for all of this is just 15 euros. You can the buy some to take home!
