Canoeing is an activity made for the River Dronne. Few of our guests leave without having at least one outing on the river in canoes or kayaks.
There are many canoe centres, the nearest only 3 km from the gite. The cost is very reasonable, typically 30 euros for a family for a 1/2 day. You are provided with all equipment, including a waterproof barrel to store clothes and picnic, and taken by mini-bus up-river with your canoe or kayak. There, you are left to paddle at your leisure down-river, for half a day or a full day, arriving back at your car.
The Dronne is a stunning river to paddle on; gentle; meandering through woods and fields; offering dozens of places to stop off, sunbathe or picnic. Its also a fun river with opportunities to skim through shallows and tackle weirs if you wish.
