For the more energetic there are very nice golf courses nearby and many lakes where you can enjoy water skiing, sailing, windsurfing and fishing. One such is situated at Mielan just 5 minutes away; here there are also canoes and pedaloes for hire, a fine sandy beach affording access to bathing and a very nice restaurant. The beautiful countryside is perfect for walking, biking and running.
Marciac also has a lake but is best known for its world renowned jazz festival with 2/3 weeks of superb concerts and performances from some of the worlds finest jazz musicians in August.
