Yes, I am not wrong: Vichy has a beach. Every summer the river becomes a real beach with sand, bikinis and umbrellas. People go to "Plage des Celestines" to sunbath, to have a cocktail, to play water sports and , of course, to bath. An extraordinary and well-executed way of taking advantage of a public space. And the name of this project is also quite cool: Nouvelle Vague.
