Riverside gites...suitable for 10 yr old?

I fancy a trip to one of these areas never having been before. Does not have to be Lagraase but I am keen on the south of France; just posting here as a starting point. My question is, how would such a break sit with a sporty 11 year old? Would such an area be too quiet? What can a child of this age do for entertainment in such an area? I would like to give the experience of the pleasant outdoors and river walking etc but what else? We would fly to a nearest airport and hire a car. Any ideas on a starting point would be appreciated? I am doing my best to avoid a trip "to a water park". A man made hell!

Carcassonne is a good starting point, as you can go up into the Black Mountains and find lots of lakes, rivers and nature, plus some remotely located gites, or you can stay nearer the city and visit the Aude river, the Corbieres and even a trip the seaside for some parasailing. The south of France is a Great choice - enjoy!
