Here is a list of some of the Plan d’eau in this region. I have subdivided it into the different departments. For more details on each Plan d’Eau ( location, facilities, times when open) click where it says website. The photo below is the Plan d’eau near Brossac. This is very nice with parking close by and a restaurant.
If you have a favourite and its not on this list then please let me know. Or if you know of one and it is not a favourite then its also worth including so people can visit it with caution and make their own mind up.
