The pond of Chéméré

  • L'étang de Chéméré


The pond of Chéméré, in the commune of Chaumes-en-Retz, is an ideal place for families to relax and enjoy the fresh air!

Just a stone's throw from the market town, not far from the Salle de l'Ellispe, the park surrounding the pond is also a great place to share and enjoy an afternoon of fun activities whatever the season...

Children love to run around, cycle, play in the playground, bounce in the bumps of the pumtrack or in the skate park...

Parents can take a reading break on a bench or in the shade of a tree... It's also an ideal spot for a picnic or snack...
