Base de Loisirs des Belles (PRAZ-sur-ARLY)

We discovered this outdoor leisure space and playground in Praz-sur-Arly, on a 🍁 sunny autumn day a few years ago now . . . our boys were delighted to be able to play in the vast open space surrounding the playgrounds, and we were able to lift our faces to the sun and relax.

The leisure space is also much more than just playgrounds, so head along well-equipped with balls (footballs, basketballs) and bikes and draisiennes . . .
