The most beautiful spots where to enjoy the Allier

If there is one place where you must experience a sunset, it is on the banks of the Allier, every evening the sky is reflected on the water and offers you a new picture with a thousand shades of colors.

In terraces

Since the guinguettes

Lake Allier has seen the birth of several bars and restaurants on its shores. Spend an evening under the trees at Tahiti Plage or in a bohemian chic atmosphere at Pride, here is the top spots for a relaxing moment with friends.

The Pride

Carpe noctem

Summer is the season when parasols sprout like chic-bohemian mushrooms on the banks of the Allier. On Friday and Saturday nights, we go to breathe at Pride where it blows a wind of hedonism, freedom and freshness, right by the river.

Live music or DJ Set, Mojito or caipirinha, cured meat boards orshrimp fritters what does it matter as long as we live, vibe and dance.

Falling asleep

Close to the water

Are you more of a character houses or “open air”? To stay in Vichy, all choices are available to you! Discover two unusual accommodations to fall asleep as close as possible to nature and a few minutes from the Queen of the water cities.


Camping glamour version

The Beau Rivage Camping & Lodges offers about 50 mobil-homes for rent, including XXXL (40m²) air-conditioned and ultra-equipped versions. It also has Kenya tents (for the Safari atmosphere) and unusual accommodations, such as the dome: a 20m² geode equipped with a double bed, set on a terrace with river view. Offering rentals with direct access to the Allier is, moreover, a luxury that only Beau Rivage can offer.

Closer to the eyes...

Closer to the heart!

The development of the banks of the left bank kicked off a vast campaign of restoration work for most of the restaurants on the banks of the Allier on the Bellerive side, which have been brought into line with their new environment. The tennis and golf sportings, the racecourse are once again open to the public, the lake’s hinterland opens up and everything becomes possible again.
