Say a very loud Oui to adventures in the Aveyron from a base at Marmotel, where you can surely pass many a day in sleepy and mellow marmot-style...
This fab and family-friendly site by the Lot river is just the ticket for idle and contented days: basking by or in the heated swimming pool, trotting across to the bar for drinks and snacks, or feasting on pizzas and local dishes in the restaurant should keep you serenely occupied for quite some time... or might you prefer to wandering down to the river for fishing, paddling and perhaps a quick 40 winks on the banks...?
The site is a couple of minutes’ walk from the small town of Saint Geniez d’Olt and its grand arched bridge spanning the river (and a statue of a marmot... if you were wondering about the name), as well as a decent spread of bars, bakeries and shops around the town. If you’re taking the marmot lifestyle seriously, though, you can pick up your bread and pastries on site and save your energy for swims and snoozing.
For those of more energetic disposition, activities like fitness classes, water polo and tennis tournaments and pony rides are arranged in the summer months. The action doesn’t slack off after dark either, with quiz nights, karaoke and dancing for the night owls.
A summer kids’ club organises games, shows and competitions for the smaller visitors, and in between there’s slithering down the waterslide, splashing in the paddling pool and hurtling around the playground.

With direct access to the Lot, watery activities will loom large on your agenda: you can hire canoes and kayaks a couple of minutes’ walk from the site, or if you’re up for grander expeditions, make the hour-long car trip to Malène to paddle through the towering Gorges du Tarn.
With an equestrian centre in town, a vertigo-inducing combination of zipwires and rope walks at Les Ifers, and quad bike hire and trails at Le Monastère (10 and 50 minutes’ drive), there’s a variety of ways to get about this great region. If you'd prefer to keep it simple, the tourist information centre in town can furnish you with a guide to the 24 hiking trails in the area; if you’re after longer treks, try the wilderness of Bozouls canyon half an hour away, or meanders around and under massive Millau Viaduct (45 minutes).
Gourmets and gastronomes can combine walking trips with tasty treats on tours of the Cistercian abbey and chocolate factory at Bonneval, or heading deep down into the Roquefort caves (45 minutes and an hour and 10 minutes away). Purchasing the cheesy and chocolately wares is not compulsory at either spot, but then again… why would you not.
