“Great Place”

Lac Jemaye Regional Park
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in La Jemaye
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Went here for a day, lovely place but could do with more sun loungers. Gets very busy in hot weather but hey, that's the best time to go when you need to cool off! Great car parks and cafe - burgers are great! Great place in the middle of the rural setting.

Staying in Vanxains and cycled down to see what was on offer, pleasantly surprised & returned the next afternoon.
Kids spent all afternoon in the lake, registered with the kayaking and was told to return in 1/2 hour. Great fun in the kayaks.
So nice to see free parking, free beach and free activities... in the UK you'd pay a fortune for this.
A couple of beach side cafes which sell salads burgers ice creams etc- all seemed reasonably priced and looked good when was served. Didn't eat so can't comment.
Heading back before we return to the extortionate charges of the 'beaches' in the U.K.

Lovely place to visit for a day with plenty to do or, if you prefer, do nothing but sit on the sandy beach. Free parking & activities including canoeing. Beach side cafes (2 of) a little basic & overpriced but otherwise, very good day out popular with French & tourists alike. Plentiful, clean facilities.

15-20 minutes drive from Aubeterre-Sur-Dronne, the drive is easy and traffic free (unlike anywhere in U.K.) parking is free and plentiful (unlike anywhere in U.K.).
There is a lovely clean sandy shore, the water is obviously non tidal, & no strong hidden currents. There are kayaks to hire, there are two little beach front cafes serving kid friendly snacks, there's also a little hotel/bistro restaurant but we haven't tried that one yet.
There's a place for playing ball games and a little shop selling bats balls & inflatables.
There are plenty of toilet facilities so everything you need for a nice day by the water on a sunny day. The only problem you may encounter is a lack of shade right on the sand, tree shade is available round to the side of the lake.
Well worth a visit. We always enjoy it there as a change from being poolside.

The days we were there it was very hot, mid 30s, and so not surprisingly extremely busy. It was very difficult to find some shade. It is also necessary to take chairs unless you want to lay on a towel. We bought burgers and chips for lunch which were very good. The site seemed well organised, there were quite a few people monitoring the site. Good sandy beach and well overlooked swimming area. Dogs need to be kept on a lead and are not allowed in the water even if you walk a fair way from the swimming area. Entrance was free. Overall very good for children if they want to play in the water on a hot day.
