A menu of water activities

Our nautical base (open in July and August) proposes different activities: Canoe Kayak rental, waterbikes and Stand Up Paddles, and an area with lifeguarded swimming at the pools and in the river (only during July and August).

The Recreational Park also comprehends a childrens playground, ping pong tables (balls and rackets are lend), a beach volley space for the sportives, a relaxing zone in the shadow of the trees and two magnificent sandy beaches.

During summer the snackbar with its beautiful view on the river will be your meeting point for a moment of filling the belly.

With your group: Organize a Canoe Trip on the ArdècheOffer a canoe descent to celebrate an occasion: the must-do in the Ardèche!

From April to September, we offer you 2 very accessible trips, adapted to all levels (rooky or experienced). The descents 8 km (Balazuc – Isla Cool Douce) or 12 km (Lanas – Isla Cool Douce) are playful, varied, and with a few rapids to assure good memories!

Our organisation can bring the whole group to the starting point and they slide back on their own rythm to the beach of Isla Cool Douce, the arrival. In terms of timing you are free: you can make a stop to discover the « ecological » hamlet of the « Viel Audon » just after Balazuc or at the little wild beaches to have a coosy picnic.

Contact us by phone or mail for more info or to make an offer for your canoe descent.

In the off-season the park is closed, but you can enjoy the beach and relax in the magnificent environment and take a fresh drink after your trip.
