About Domaine de Segries

A woodland glade beside a converted farmhouse provides shade for our chalets and tents deep in the heart of the Ardèche region. Domaine de Segries watersports centre in France (known as ‘Segs’) is your base for the river trip of a lifetime through the spectacular Ardèche Gorge.

Once you’re back from the river, there are plenty of adventure activities at the centre to challenge and inspire, plus an open-air swimming pool, football pitch and volleyball court to use.

See who braves the high ropes course, join in with an archery session or watch your students work together on a problem solving challenge. It’s a great environment for them to help and support each other, challenge themselves and achieve great things as a team.

Accommodation is provided in our cosy farmhouse, our purpose-built chalets or, if you want to get even closer to the outdoors, in our tented villages!

Food

Our centres in southern France offer a fantastic range of delicious food choices for you and your group to enjoy. We source fresh, regional produce whenever we can and you’ll always find a cultural flavour to our menus. Our aim is to ensure your group leaves feeling full and happy. If a member of your group has a specific dietary requirement or is particularly choosy about what they eat, we will always prepare something suitable. And if they’d like some more to eat, we can offer alternatives and extra food.

Encouraging healthy eating
You’ll always find a good selection of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables on offer every day. A range of salads is available at lunch and dinner time and fresh fruit is available at every meal.

A continental feel
We like to provide a balance by providing food that is familiar but also by giving you an opportunity to try food that has a distinctly French flavour too!

Enjoy your food
We strive to provide quality meals wherever you are eating them – as well as a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. So, whether you are in the surroundings of our clean and pleasant dining rooms or on the banks of a river, enjoy your food with PGL!
