The Loire Valley region
For river or lake swimming there are a number of places to choose from:
Sidialles: A tranquil lake near Culan, here you can swim from a sandy beach in safety under the watchful eyes of life-guards, hire pedaloes, sailboards, or canoes/kayaks, take long walks around the lake or have a meal or drink in the restaurant.
Eguzon: In the Creuse valley, this site offers swimming, sailing, water-skiing, sailboards, plus fishing, tennis, riding, walking. You can choose the calm lakes, lively rivers bordered by granite rocks, or cool streams in wooded landscapes. There are also plenty of places to eat and drink.
Chatelus-Malvieux: Another lovely lake for swimming from a sandy beach. Barbecue areas are laid out and you can walk around the site under the cool shade of its trees.
Herculat: This lake, near Treignat, offers swimming, fishing, restaurant and bar.
Golf – 18-hole championship golf course nearby, no handicap required and concessions for over 60?s.
The nearest town is the delightful market town of La Châtre, once a Roman camp or 'ceastra' from which it gets its name. There are one or two vestiges such as the Roman bridge that crosses the river Indre. There are also numerous wonderful medieval buildings in the center, which leads to the market place where the Saturday market with dozens of stalls is a definite must to visit.
La Châtre has five supermarkets, several boulangeries, patisseries, charcuteries plus many traditional family-owned shops that offer a full range of goods and services. There are many restaurants, bars, a cinema with occasional English films, fabulous swimming pool facility, and the George Sand Museum.
Nohant (3km) is the home of author George Sand.
