A perfect little hidden gem, 13 minutes from The Alpaca B&B
If you fancy a day lounging on the banks of a recreational lake on a fabulously sunny hot day in the Dordogne, with a wicker picnic basket, baguette, cheese and ham, bottle of wine with a couple of glasses, then this is definitely THE place I recommend....
At 8 miles it's also perfectly cyclable (is that a word) or a longer route through winding back roads seeing some gorgeous countryside.
There are picnic benches, there's a snack shack, there are trees for shade, there is a sand bank and a pontoon in the water which reminds me of american movies for some reason.
Free car parking, but apart from all the above when you just want an ice cream and to be 'somewhere else' for a couple of hours - its a very good 'somewhere else'
1.5 miles from Thiviers
