Swimming at Le Poteau

We have a small, above ground pool for the gites and campsite which you get to by taking a short stroll past the vineyard and sweet chestnut trees.  The pool is great for a cooling dip during the long, hot summer days we enjoy in Gers but isn’t big enough for those wanting a proper swim.

There are two options for the serious swimmer – there’s a lovely outdoor pool in the village, or we recommend that you try wild swimming in the nearby rivers and lakes, some great locations for this are:

  • Lac d’Aignan – about 30 minutes away
  • Lac de Lupiac – about 30 minutes away
  • Lac de Saint Clar – about 50 minutes away
