“It’s a July afternoon, the heat is there and we just have one idea to cool off. A few steps from Vendôme and Montoire we decided to land at Villiers lake. The cries of children can be heard splashing the water. Some others prefer to relax in the shade of the trees.

Just Sitting on our towel, we can simply laze with a good book or simply go for a swim.
