This is a truly magnificent site in the back of beyond and it would be very hard to hope or want for anything better. Appropriately named, ‘Les Deux Lacs’ is between 2 lakes, one for fishing and one for swimming, with a water trampoline and canoes into the bargain. If you have young children, it’s paradise on Earth for them and there is also a brasserie, which we intend to use before we go. We have booked 3 nights to give us a proper break before heading southeast to Portiragnes.
Last night was very quiet by the canal and Adonis managed to catch a baby catfish. There were some young people swimming in the strictly forbidden area between the locks in true French fashion ‘you can’t tell me what I can’t do’ type of attitude, and later on a young man parked his car blaring some Reggae music, but it was all silent by 9.30 pm, when we went to bed.
We got up at 8.15 am, so it was a very peaceful and silent night and set off at 9.45 am with just one stop for tobacco and bread. We made it here by noon and had to borrow an extension lead, as hook-up point is too far from our pitch. We have been relaxing ever since, with cooling swims in the lake, as it’s 32 Celsius in the shade inside van!
