Baignade naturelle-grand-Chambord.



The climate here means that in the height of summer you might just be looking for somewhere to relax and cool off so you will be pleased to know that there are many opportunities to do so, with many local communities providing 'man-made beaches. Most tend to be open for swimming during July and August when there will be a 'lifeguard' in attendance.
