Bathing in the area

Did you know that it is possible to bathe in the countryside near Epinal ?

After a long walk in the countryside, there is nothing like a refreshing swim. You don't need to go to the coast to enjoy a day at the beach. At the Bouzey lake in Chaumousey, the developed beaches and swimming areas have everything you need. And why not go around the lake, on foot (about 1h30) or by bike? If you don't have a bike, you can rent one at the Base Natur'O. Our dog friends are welcome to accompany you on your walks at the Bouzey lake.

The Wam Park at Domaine des Lacs in Thaon-les-Vosges is also an unavoidable place to do some outdoor swimming. A beach with a supervised swimming area is available for you to enjoy the sunshine at the water's edge. The pleasant setting, the relaxed and cheerful holiday atmosphere and the clear water in the middle of a preserved natural setting will convince you to slip into the cool water of the lake. While swimming, watch the adventurers water ski, paddle or play on the inflatable games in Wam Park. Before you leave, why not try these water activities ?

That's not all, there is no shortage of natural water sources. During a hike in the heart of the Vosges forest, it is not uncommon to come across waterfalls and streams where you can dip your feet to relax and reinvigorate yourself before resuming your journey. For example, go to the Gué du Saut waterfall in the commune of Xertigny, a natural site not to be missed in the area. Enjoy two walks (circuit 1 and circuit 2) before returning to soak your feet at the bottom of the waterfall, in the middle of the lush greenery or in the Rechentreux stream.
