Too hot to think about anything other than dipping in cool water? Then Salerne’s Plan d’Eau is the place for you. It’s a lovely river water lido that is man made but uses the river water that is filtered before moving it’s way down the public “plan d’eau”. There is a lovely shaded grassy area for picnics and the whole family can swim in the colder-than-swimming-pool-water lido. It’s very refreshing!
Directions: Take the D13 direction Sillans-La-Cascade. At the chateau make a right and head in the directions of Salernes. 15 mins drive later you’ll come to a roundabout (mouth of the village of Salernes). Make a right turn and you’ll see signs for the Plan d’Eau (another right turn and go down the road where you’ll see a big gate, this is the entry to the swimming area).
