This waterpark sits on the banks of the Dordogne river, so you get pretty views from the top of the slides before swishing down into the pools below. The slides cater for everyone from scaredy cats to daredevils. Beware of the fast drop slide – you’re likely to lose your bathers being hurled along the bottom chute. No-one minds, in fact, there's usually a group at the bottom, laughing their heads off.
It’s possible to combine a morning canoe trip with an afternoon in the waterpark, or just come for the whole day – there’s easily enough to amuse the whole family for the duration. Get here as the gates open (11am) if you want to bag a seat by one of the pools (there’s a small charge). The big slides open at 12pm and stay fairly quiet until after lunch. As well as the various water features, there are bouncy castles, pedal vehicles, table tennis tables and playgrounds. The café sells incredible pizzas made to order and baked in a pizza oven by a very sweaty chef (trust us, they're delicious) – or you can bring your own picnic. Open May to September – bring cash, they don’t take cards.
