Do you know Lauriole's curiosity? It is a stretch of road that goes up and at the same time down. It is located between Siran and the hamlet of Fourmes. You will be able to experiment with your children: take a filled bottle of water and stand in the middle of the slope. Just when you thought the bottle was going to "go down" the slope, it "goes up" it! Do the same thing with your car in neutral. Don't see any paranormal phenomenon, it's just the result of an optical illusion created by the surrounding landscape and the road below...
You have direct access from the residence! You can go around the lake on foot, by bike, to practice many water activities (July and August) such as Paddle or windsurfing. And the youngest ones can benefit from the inflatable structures on the water... A "guinguette" is installed in summer with the possibility to eat and drink but also to attend concerts once a week.
