For water lovers

100 metres from the campsite, on the Guerlie beach, you can enjoy clear water and a fine sandy beach. The bathing area is supervised by two lifeguards in July and August and an inflatable structure is installed during this period (unless decided otherwise by Covid-19).
Opposite this beach, the beach of La Chassagne in the commune of Videix in Haute Vienne (87), offers another point of view on the lake of Lavaud and the possibility of bathing and eating at the snack bar.

Both beaches are bordered by water woods, oak trees and meadows.
The beach of La Guerlie is equipped with Audioplage and Tiralo, allowing people with reduced mobility to access the swimming areas.

By the lake

The 16 beach

In front of the 16 Beach, a snack bar is located on the Guerlie beach and directly accessible from the campsite where you can rent paddles, canoes, giant buoys…
You can also come with your own equipment ; a launching ramp is located just at the entrance of the campsite.
Both lakes are accessible to water sports enthusiasts but the practices and access conditions are different on each lake. In addition, fishing cards are available for sale at the campsite reception.

The lakes of Haute-Charente.

The waters of the two lakes of the Haute-Charente (Lake Lavaud and Lake Mas Chaban) are accessible to fishermen with a permit (available at the campsite reception, for a day, a week or a year). On the lake of Lavaud, fishing is possible with 4 lines and on the lake of Mas Chaban, it is authorized by boat (combustion engine forbidden). You will find pike-perch, carp, black-bass, catfish, perch, tench and pike.


25 minutes away, you can travel on the Tardoire river during a canoeing trip and discover prehistoric caves, menhirs, Gallo-Roman remains, castles…, or on the Vienne river between Chabanais and Manot, letting yourself be lulled by the current of this beautiful and quiet river.
