LAZING ABOUT AND NO STRESS!
REAL holidays are when you take the time to take a break, a moment for yourself. When the temperature rises and the sun is shining a bit more, take a break in the great outdoors next to our small rivers, ponds developed for families and open air pools! Although plenty of rain falls on these valleys of the Mayenne during the winter (and yes, we're not going to lie! ), this undoubtedly makes them very beautiful and very green!
Here, there are no traffic jams and no need to go round and round in circles looking for somewhere to park. You will not hear the advertising planes or the rolling ocean waves, but just the relaxing rustle of wind in the leaves!
So, head for the outdoor activity centres or the river banks, and immerse yourself in nature for a moment of tranquillity and to enjoy the peace of this woodland environment.
THE BEACH IN THE COUNTRYSIDE
In the summer, enjoy supervised swimming ponds, real beaches or bathing water, with the additional tranquillity of the countryside: at the Gué de Selle activity centre in Mézangers or the activity centre of Le Petit-Saint-Cénéré in Saulges. No one will walk on your towel, there's plenty of room for everyone! Sunbathe on the sand, and enjoy the water at your own pace in a pedalo.
Feeling peckish? make the most of the picnic tables and spread out a rustic buffet! Restaurants around the lake shore offer elegant and delicious cuisine for a lunch break, such as the restaurant La Fenderie in Deux-Evailles or Le Relais du Gué de Selle in Mézangers.
LARGE POOLS & SMALL VILLAGES
Swap the slippery tiles of city swimming pools, for grass that tickles your toes. In Sainte-Suzanne, Bais or Evron, the outdoor pools are open in the summer! swim 2 or 3 lengths or to cool off during the hot weather, plunge into the big pool!
And to keep fit (but also burn off those summer kebabs, let's be honest), attend a session of water aerobics or aquabike.
RELAX IN YOUR JACCUZZI
Fancy a moment to relax and spoil yourself? The Evron Aquatic Garden and its swimming area are open all year round, allowing you to combine some sport in the pool with some relaxation in the jacuzzi. For an even more special moment, book a treatment in one of the spas and relax afterwards with a well-being treatment provided by expert beauticians and massage therapists. A moment of relaxation to share with your kids, your friends or on your own to get away from it all and unwind!
Category 1 and 2 rivers, ponds bursting with trout... fishing lovers will be able to find their perfect spot and tease the fish at the end of their line. For an independent session, to introduce your children to your best techniques, fishing permits can be bought in lots of places on the Coëvrons. For a supervised session, a fishing guide will be your best ally.
And for a 100% fishing holiday, book your stay in a specially equipped fishing lodge next to a river or pond.
