Sports and leisure activities on the spot

Holidays mean leisure activities! Between moments of relaxation and idleness, what could be more pleasant than a refreshing dive into the swimming pool, a game of pétanque (french bowls), a game of table tennis or volley ball ?

At Le Moulin S/C homes village, all the leisure facilities are reserved exclusively for our customers:

  • Swimming pool (15 x 8m, depth 0.60 to 1.90 cm), sunbeds and fixed parasols.
  • Paddling pool (4 x 4m, depth 0.40 to 0.60 cm).

So our guests can meet, we organise a “welcome drink“. This friendly moment is also an opportunity to visit the windmill.
