A Leisure Activity Centre in Perigord

 

Dordogne, is not beside the sea (you might have noticed :) ?), however it can be hot and sometimes very hot in summer! Do you want to relax at the waters edge, enjoy a pleasant place to lay your beach towel, get a tan? Luckily there are Outdoor Activity Centres!

 

Generally developed around an artificial lake, the outdoor activity centres are ideal places to spend a relaxing day or half day with your family

The Rouffiac Outdoor Activity Centre, located in the northeast of the departement, is developed around a beautiful lake, surrounded by a natural setting of forests and meadows. I spent a fabulous family day in Rouffiac, let me tell you about all the activities available, that will make you want to come too!

Bathing and relaxing, Aqua Park and games!

 

In Rouffiac, you just have to come and lay down your beach towel. The lake, the games for children and the sand will look after the rest. Relaxation, resting or water games... The children can safely enjoy the age appropriate infrastructure, while you either tan, go for a small swim in the lake or take a break with an ice-cream and cool drinks.

Ski cable

 

Have you ever tried wake-boarding? Forget about your fears, here it is the challenge that counts! Safely and with instructors, you can try the ski cable or the wake-board. Towed by a cable, which tours part of the lake, you can learn to glide is feels close to surfing or snowboarding. The more experienced can try ski jumps! The atmosphere is really nice at the Cable Park, there is a cafe always full of smiling and dynamic young people! We stayed to admire the athletes, my son was flabbergasted by the performances of some of them, and it is a show not to be missed even if you are not participating!

Et si je tombe ? Pas de problème, je marche le long de la berge

What if I fall? No worries, I walk along the water edges

Tree climbing

Do you prefer the treetops? No worries, you can go tree climbing at the Rouffiac Outdoor Activity Centre! There are many trails, which depend on your age, and also your adrenaline fix needs ... We went on the practice area to learn how to use the harnesses and carabiners. Ten we headed for the blue and red trails. Sometimes, the activities to get from one platform to the other are really original, like wake-boarding 7metres above the ground, from the small wooden cars (yes, the kids will want to do it 3 or 4 times...) to the traditional zip lines with a beautiful view on the lake below. The shady trails are pleasant and well designed.

The other activities

Other activities are available in Rouffiac, for groups and also as part as the active summer programme, a Perigord wide programme to encourage people to discover new sports and leisure activities during summer. Rock climbing, archery, pot holing, sailing, paintballing ... contact the Conseil Général de Dordogne which organises this programme. Online registration is free; some activities are then available at very special prices (a few euros).

 

There is a campsite on the Rouffiac Outdoor Activity Centre, which is a lovely holiday destination. You are well located, not far from the villages and activities of the Green Perigord, two steps away from the Black Perigord and its tourist sites and around ten minutes from the White Perigord and the beautiful town of Périgueux.
