About Mimosa and Domaine de Segries

Mimosa, Languedoc Coast

Step outside your tented village at Mimosa watersports centre in France and you’re practically straight onto the long, uncrowded sandy beach, where a thrilling range of watersports awaits you and your secondary school group.

Watch as your students sail a catamaran over the gentle waves in the sun; enjoy some beach games with their friends; test their skills on a sit-on kayak - trips to the Mediterranean don’t get much better than this.

There’s a great relaxed feel to this beachfront centre and there’s plenty to discover within the grounds.

Domaine de Segries, Ardèche

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.

It’s a great environment for them to help and support each other, challenge themselves and achieve great things as a team.
