For a gite with nearby Canoeing & Kayaking: Try La Croix Spa
La Croix Spa is just 3 minutes drive from the nearest canoeing at the largest freshwater lakes in the region: the Lacs de Haute Charente where there are also sandy bathing beaches and bars. There is kayaking and canoeing also available at the nearby towns of Exideuil and Confolens which will make great river excursions for your family.
Canoeing & Kayaking at Exideuil
There is river kayaking at Exideuil which comes highly recommended by our guests. The course takes you through the valley of the river Vienne down to Manot. You will pass beautiful old mills and shoot small rapids. Life jackets and helmets are provided. You get picked up by minibus at the far end and returned to your cars. There are discount vouchers for this activity.
Canoeing & Kayaking at Confolens
Canoeing and Kayaking is available at Confolens, on the road towards the beautiful St Germain de Confolens (well worth a visit in its own right). This location also offers paddle-boarding and pedaloes on the Vienne River. See their website.
Both locations require pre-booking. Please discuss with us at least a day before you intend going as these popular excursions get booked up quickly in Summer.
