Pagel may be in rural France but that shouldn’t mean that you can’t get your “beach fix”. Just a 10-minute drive from Pagel is Le Lac Vert an ideal family day out which has a playground, free car park, toilets and a cafe/restaurant.
For active families, there’s Tennis, Table Tennis, Beach Volleyball as well as Basketball/football areas. In the hot summer months, the lake exposes a bit of sand at the water’s edge so the kids have the chance to build those sandcastles after all!
Pedalos and canoes can be hired too or if you prefer you can go for a stroll around the lake with the pram.
For those wanting just to chill out, there are picnic tables with BBQ facilities and the lake is accessible all year round but supervised throughout July and August.
So you may not want to leave Pagel but if you feel the need to explore the local area you don’t need to venture too far- happy days!
