The Etang du Puits

Although the Etang du Puits was in existence before drainage works were undertaken in Sologne, it was much smaller and belonged to a land owner living in Orléans. It now covers 150 hectares.


Leisure activities

Nowadays the site offers numerous leisure activities such as sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing, pedalo and swimming, which is only allowed in July and August in the afternoon, under the supervision of a swimming instructor. Fishermen can also have fun, as there are more than 20 species of fish: carp, pike, perch, eel, pike-perch…

As it straddles the Départements of Loiret and Cher, it can also be explored by rambling along an 8 kilometre signposted footpath in protected natural surroundings.

On the Northern side of the pond, a recreation area has been prepared with picnic places, games for children, public conveniences, as well as an Information Centre. You can also have a snack at the bar Chez Bébert.
