Fontet - This Sleepy attractive village set beside the Canal is worth
exploring, from its open bell tower church to its tiny museum (Musee

not visit the local mariner (Base de loisirs Halte nautique) where
children can safely swim in the lake or play on the man made beach
(life guard in attendance). There is a beach bar for light
refreshments and ice creams. In the village you will find a
Boulangerie and a very good restaurant (Les Fontines) both within a
short stroll from Lordons. There are many horse riding stables close
by who cater for all levels. There are numerous walks along the Canal
