Swimming in lake or river...

The banks of the Aveyron

Feel like unfolding your towel in an unforgettable place, and, why not, have a picnic. In the shade of a tree, for a moment of idleness by the water, to cool off in the heat, in a preserved natural setting, you will find a wide choice of sites in the Causses and Gorges of the Aveyron.

There are many beaches along the banks of the Aveyron, but some of them are private and swimming is not supervised. On the other hand, there are several supervised bathing areas where you can play, enjoy activities and relax.

A haven of peace far from the crowds and noise, the lake of Parisot, covering almost 8 hectares, offers a wide range of activities for all, as well as a white sand beach. At the confluence of the Viaur and the Aveyron, in Laguépie, a Green Resort and Blue Flag, under the benevolent eye of the old Château de La Guépie, the quality of the water is regularly monitored. Swimming is supervised in July and August.

In short... to prepare your fresh break, or to come and splash around with your family, it's here.
