Things to do for children

At our location, you will not find a full-time animation team. But children will have a great time here. Put the tablet and the Nintendo DS aside, go back to nature. Our property offers plenty of space for children to play and let their imagination run wild in nature. We have a swimming pool of 5x8x1.40m and there is a field to play volleyball or badminton. With old branches and other materials, you can build a real hut.

In the surrounding area, there are a few lovely places to swim and enjoy the sun. You can relax by the banks of the Viaur river (where you can also build those fun little stone dams), or on a sandy beach at Lac de Roucarié.

The city of Albi with children

On the Place de Vigan, the fountain is a favorite, running barefoot through the jets of water, then on the merry-go-round. Then a drink on the terrace...

Visit to the Cathedral, impressive, also for children, behind the cathedral, the gardens and walls of the Toulouse Lautrec museum are freely accessible. Nice view over the river! The museum also houses the Tourist Office.

A little further, to the left of the Cathedral and the museum, you pick up the green walking path through Albi. A 3 km walk through the heart of the city, but with a green touch, down steep stairs, along the Tarn through the bamboo forest to a small river.
