Lac de Laneuville gives us the chance to enjoy many of the things we all love. My partner is a French teacher so loves to get a chance to use French and we all enjoy the walks and nature spotting in the surrounding forest. My children particularly enjoy the days out to the sandy beach at lac du der. This family holiday also gives me some time to spend fishing, something I would not get a chance to do on any other family holiday.
