No need to live beside the sea – find a beach near you!

No need to live beside the sea









France is renowned for it’s wonderful bathing lakes which are found throughout the countryside and are a welcome relief from hot weather whilst being close to home.  Throughout Normandy there are gems to be found – at La Ferte-Mace in Orne (see picture) and also Pays de la Loire – at Sille le Guillaume in Sarthe and just south of Jublains in Mayenne.

The beaches are open to the public all year round and often feature sandy beaches, childrens’s play areas, bars, restaurant/snacks, lifeguard, pedalos and sailing and general bas de loisirs often with bike and go cart hire or just to take a stroll.  They are lovely spaces which we often go to for the evening after school as well as throughout the summer and well into Autumn.
