With the current high temperatures why not hit the beach...yes here in Southern Touraine we have our own 'beach' on the banks of the river Creuse at 'Le bout du pont'.
with the water level low the kids here in Barrou don't even go that far!
Many riverside town are creating 'man-made beaches with Montrichard (above) having a well established one with many facilities.
From Southern Touraine you can slip over the Creuse into our neighbour the Vienne where La Roche Posay has its own little beach...
or head down to 'LeLac' in Chatellerault and enjoy free canoeing.
check out their website here
If you head a little further south to St Cyr to their lake you can enjoy a number of water activities.
