Swimming lake Lac du Paty near Caromb

Swimming lake Lac du Paty near Caromb
Lac du Paty is a reservoir. It is beautifully situated between the hills. Officially you can not swim there but the locals and tourists do. In summertime  it hardly rains so the dam is not suddenly opened. Depending on the water level you have the opportunity to sit right at the water front or you can look for the shade of the trees. Several walks are indicated at the lake. You can also get some food and drinks. On sunday afternoon in July and August you can watch the local people dancing.

Swimming and playing in the river Ouvèze

river Ouvèze near Entrechaux
From your holiday home you can walk to the river Ouvèze and its old narrow Roman bridge via a gravelpath within 5 minutes. It is a wonderful place for children to play in and along the water. You can experience a nice picnic and the necessary cooling. The place at the bridge is the most popular because parking is available. However there are endlessly many private spots to discover along the river to enjoy peace and quiet. The height of the water is of course dependening on the season.
