It’s summer, the weather’s great and all the kids want to do is have fun!
It’s the perfect opportunity to visit leisure centres in South Charente!
Take to the sky…
The leisure centre in Magnac Lavalette, which is only a few kilometres from Villebois-Lavalette, a Petite Cité de Caractère, has lots of different activities on offer.
On the ground, there are two mountain biking trails that begin on site. For those that love to walk, the Health Trail is perfect to let off some steam. Children will love the playgrounds on site.
You’ll see what is so unusual about the leisure centre in Magnac when you look to the sky. This playground for the model aircraft making club in Angoulême is also the perfect place for novice paragliders.
Flying high above Charente, between the Château de la Mercerie and the Château de Villebois-Lavalette is something that can only be done from this leisure centre in Magnac.
Get your feet wet in Aubeterre
In the foothills of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France, you’ll find the meandering River Dronne and the sandy beach leisure centre next to it. There are lifeguards in the summer, which means that children can play freely and safely in the water. There are lots of games and activities in the grassy area for the kids while the adults play a round of beach volleyball.
For the sporty type, visit the canoe club at the bottom of bridge, where you’ll find several cycle and mountain bike trails.
It’s the perfect spot for a picnic. Do you fancy eating out at a restaurant? Go towards the campsite opposite the beach. Visit the bar-restaurant for a meal or a snack with your feet in the sand.
Between the trees in Poltrot
The leisure centre in Poltrot is a real haven of nature. The River Dronne is home to an eyot which separates the river in two before rejoining and continuing on. The monkey bridge will take visitors to the sandy beach whereas the wood bridge will take you the café restaurant.
This playground for little and big kids alike has lots of activities and events going on during the summer. The treetop climbing courses are suitable for all ages, or if you fancy something on the ground, there’s a maze, bubble football, disk golf and orienteering.
Whether you’re a fan of watching the fish from the bridge near the mill or visiting the bees in the learning beehives, Poltrot is a dream destination for nature lovers. This haven of calm and greenery, where nature reigns, is perfect to destress and unwind.
Walk in the sand at the Étang Vallier
This pond in the middle of a forest is surrounded by gites, a restaurant, a campsite and a clubhouse. It’s the perfect spot to let go. Welcome to Étang Vallier!
The wooded and rolling hills of the countryside make for the ideal playground for lovers of cycling and hiking.
The sandy beach on the banks of the lagoon will help to cool off and relax after your activities. If you’re looking for something fun to do, why not try out the mini-golf course with your friends or family? To end the day, we recommend having a drink on a terrace.
Watching the sun set over the lagoon is a magical way to finish your day.
