Bauduen beach fun

From Cotignac, this place is just a 35 mins drive away. It’s Lac St Croix at its best – the beach pier at Bauduen (just at the village entrance) has great pedalos and paddle boards for rent at 17 and 8 euros per hour. When there is no wind and the lake is smooth, this equipment is truly fun to rent and it’s fun for the whole family! There are little nooks and pretty places to paddle to, swimming is also great here, and there’s never a lack of sunshine in Provence, so it’s ideal for the summer.  Try Café du Midi (just into the village, on your right on a terrace up the stairs passed the post office) for a great lunch (I had their veal with ceppe mushroom sauce, it was divine) just bring cash or a French bank cheque as they do not accept credit cards. But they do have the most amazing tasting ice cream ever!! – 🙂 Susana
