Swimming areas

From Aubrac to the Gorges du Tarn

Would you like to take a dip in the crystal-clear waters of the Gorges du Tarn, in the calm waters of Lac du Moulinet between Aubrac and Margeride, or in a secure swimming pool?

There’s no better way to cool off than to put your feet in the water!

You can choose your ideal spot: supervised or unsupervised bathing, in the heart of nature, in the center of a village…


Swimming in the Gorges du Tarn

There are numerous swimming spots in the Gorges du Tarn: every village and hamlet has its own beach. Find the place that suits you best: the depth, current and scenery change from place to place.

You can also enjoy a little piece of paradise by canoeing, kayaking or stand-up paddling down the Tarn, stopping off at beaches that are only accessible by water. You’ll be alone in the world to appreciate this extraordinary setting.

Finally, take advantage of the private beaches of the many campsites and accommodation along the river.


Swimming in the lakes

In Lozère and Aveyron, there are several lakes where you can relax by the water.

Lac de la Cisba at Lapanouse, near Sévérac-le-Château, is open to the public all year round. In summer, the lake offers a wide range of activities, including introductory canoeing and stand-up paddling, concerts on the beach and fireworks displays…

Between Aubrac and Margeride, there’s also Lac du Moulinet, where you can enjoy a wide range of water sports: pedal-boating, stand-up paddling…

Worth knowing: the Route des Lacs d’Aubrac, as its name suggests, allows you to discover the lakes of Aubrac. However, it is not possible to swim in any of them (with the exception of Lac du Moulinet).


Swimming in open or covered pools

TheChanacopen-air pool is open from June to September, and theLa Canourgue and Séverac-le-Château open-air pools are open in July and August. Come and enjoy the comfort of a supervised swimming pool with several pools for young and old.

All year round for our guests, and out of season for others, the Clos des Chênesgîtes village in Le Massegros, on the Causse de Sauveterre, offers a wellness area with indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna, hammam… A moment of relaxation guaranteed!
