Enjoy a holiday in the great outdoors

Lac du Jaunay

The Lac du Jaunay is a 114-hectare freshwater lake which is popular for fishing and outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, water sports or simply a nice long walk.

Donkey and carriage rides

The Calin Ca-ânes donkey farm next to the Domaine will take you round the shaded banks of the Lac du Jaunay on a donkey ride or in a donkey-drawn carriage.
Pop in and say hello to the little Irish donkeys, they love being stroked!

Take to the water in a canoe, kayak or pedalo!

Cano'Evasion on the left bank of the lake rents out canoes, kayaks, pedalos and fishing equipment.
