At this point of the Hérault river, the current isn’t too strong, you can swim and have fun in this 100% natural spot. The most adventurous can go and explore the river beds with their nets to try and capture the local fauna or explore the river bottom with their goggles and snorkels. Some lucky holiday makers manage to capture a trout or some other fresh water fish…
One of the main activities in the Gorges of the Hérault is to rent a canoe or a kayak and travel down the river. In the gorges of the Hérault river, this activity is accessible to all and takes you to the heart of one of the most beautiful protected sites of the South of France.
Along the whole length of the Hérault river, there are many canoe rental companies. Therefore, you will have many choices about the length of the activity, from 3 to 13 km, from courses for beginners to those for experienced canoeists. However, you need to be over 6 years old for this activity.
The natural swimming pool
How pleasant to escape the chlorinated public swimming pools and discover the natural swimming pool of the campsite Domaine d’Anglas. Pretty unique, this 300m² swimming pool is surrounded by stunning landscapes. At the top part of the campsite, you will be able to admire the organic vineyard, the Thaurac and the Cave of the Demoiselles while you swim and cool off.
This swimming space is in harmony with the campsite philosophy of Domaine d’Anglas. Slightly lower than the main pool, there is second pool that, using the same principle as the lagunage theory, naturally filtrates water thanks to a system of water plants. This circular system functions with a water cascade to transfer the water from one pool to the other. This means that the swimming pool water is free of chemicals. Everyone likes to swim in a natural swimming pool and make their holiday more eco-responsable!
Far from the hassle of life, make the most of a calm moment, easy and simple for a dream-holiday… Relax in a nice and comfortable chair with your favourite book or read about the Cévennes National Park while your children can play in the children’s play area… It feels like paradise!
