The Station Nautique, a water sports resort on Lake du Der, is also the largest freshwater sailing marina. As soon as the good weather arrives, the marina in Giffaumont-Champaubert, which holds “Blue Flag” status, fills with motorboats, motorised water sports equipment, dinghies, cruise yachts and kite-surfs. In the shelter of a 2-hectare island, the pontoons opposite the clubhouses provide moorings for almost 400 craft during the high season.
The marina also has a fuel pump and a lifting crane to slip boats.
LIGUE DE L'ENSEIGNEMENT - F.O.L MEUSE ( ex C.S.L. UFOLEP) at the tip of the Rougemer peninsula has a fleet of 80 dinghies and catamarans in which to train the yachtsmen of the future. The sports hall is used for competitions and a range of sports tuition.
At the height of the summer season, hundreds of tourists come and sunbathe on the sandy beach and swim in the area supervised by a lifeguard.
The resort provides various types of accommodation – a 2-star campsite, a 2-start tourist residence, holiday lets and two sets of group accommodation.
The resort is designed for living, exercising and walking. Whether you are with your family or friends, find out about the activities and entertainments available, from the most adrenalin-pumping to most restful. You can take advantage of the many restaurants, snack bars, pubs and ice cream parlours to cool down or have a bite to eat on a terrace in the shade. The shops at the resort will also ensure that you “can’t resist” a souvenir of Lac du Der.
Several special events are part of the resort calendar – sailing regattas, competitions for motorised water vehicles and water skiing, an evening flea market in Giffaumont and arts and crafts markets. The International Wildlife and Nature Photography Festival is the main event in autumn, rounding off the resort’s tourist season with exhibitions of photos and equipment.
