Wanderlust: Wild Swimming in France

Tuesday, July 1, 2014



Le sigh, how would you fancy transporting yourself to the French countryside just with a simple flick of the fingers? This morning I discovered that France is a true gem when it come to secret lakes, swimming holes (thermal springs) and romantic waterfalls. Who knew?

Supposedly, Lac d’Ilay is one of the most spectacular lakes in France's remote Jura region and the place to be if you want to escape the busyness of the city and swap it for crisp water, barefoot walks and endless sunshine. Ah, I can totally picture Balazs and I renting a tiny cottage just a short walk away from a hot spring, with the most magical pathway and forest everywhere you look. Not to mention the dusk bike rides, morning crisp swims and eating cheese in one of those home-y farmshops around. Dreamy isn't it? Ready to pack? xo

P.S: Castel Meur in France and this amazing cliff edge town also in France.
P.P.S: Another stunning lake worth daydreaming about.
