For a gite near a beach, choose La Croix Spa.
We are one mile from the largest freshwater leisure lakes in the region – the Lacs de Haute Charente – with sandy beaches, bars and restaurants. Our nearest beach is La Guerlie Plage and there is another – La Chassagne – at Videix about two miles from us.
Both La Guerlie and La Chassagne beaches have marked swimming areas and lifeguards every day through the Summer except Sunday and Monday.
There is a bar at both beaches where you can have snacks and refreshments and there is an English-run restaurant, “Le Soleil Couchant” which is a restaurant and bar with a play area for kids and which also shows major sporting events on its large TV.
Activities available on the beach vary from Summer to Summer, so check what is available before you arrive.
Great for a day out with the family. Sunbathe; swim and then grab an ice cream or a cold beer from the bar.
No motor sports are permitted on the lakes so it is also tranquil.
Paddle boards and canoes are available for hire when the beaches are manned. Kayaking and canoeing is also available on nearby rivers.
