Have fun on the waterways of the Entre-deux-rivières

Entre-deux-rivières is a small area, nestled between the Tarn and the Aveyron. A multitude of streams cross it. You will find many aquatic leisure centers there.

The town of Monclar-de-Quercy is fortunate to have three lakes. On one of them, the Waterfun Parc YC offers gigantic inflatable modules and slides, but also swimming pools and play areas suitable for young and old...

Not far from there, in Castelnau-de-Montmiral, you can enjoy great slides on the giant slide at the Vère-Gresigne leisure center.

Live the adventure in the Gorges de l'Aveyron, on the Causses du Quercy

In the Causses du Quercy, Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val offers an idyllic setting for a swim in the river. In the heart of nature, at the foot of the Gorges de l'Aveyron, you will be able to enjoy the freshness of the river, let the children have fun on the banks, or rent a canoe from Acti Eaux Vives (fr).


The good plan: To appreciate this decoration at its true value, we advise you to take height at the Saint Antonin adventure park. Zip line, skydiving, escal'arbre, and even an archery tag await.

In the surroundings of Caylus, the Bois de Labarthe is a very bucolic place, classified " Sensitive Natural Area ". To allow you to relax there, without damaging it, a leisure center has been installed on the lake. The children will have fun in its paddling pool and its playground, while the parents will bask by the water. Nearby, two sites are really worth a visit: the ecomuseum of the Gorges de l'Aveyron and the petrifying waterfall of Saint-Livron.
