Shaded, family and peaceful beach. Picnic area, barbecues...

The Bois-Vieux nautical base is shady, family-friendly and peaceful. A little corner of paradise, it comes alive all summer and offers you all the pleasures of the sea in the mountains. Numerous pitches are arranged in the shade of the pines, with hammocks available, a children's playground and a boarding pontoon for the Bateau promenade "Le Serre-Ponçon".

Installed in 2015, this is a unique facility in France: a 250m² immersed swimming pool, docked to the shores of the Bois Vieux beach. Three wooden pools carry you over the waters of the lake, with a grandiose panorama...A little corner of heavenly coolness!
The floating pool is supervised in July and August.
