Beautiful area with the lake with a beach and mountains, lots of interesting places nearby to explore. Shame our campsite nearby closed in the middle of September or we would have loved to stay longer!

A beautiful lake with different outdoor possibilities: swimming, fishing. We had a nice walk around the lake, which you can do in about an hour. It gives varied views and is partially on wooden walkways above the water. There were hiking trails going more uphill as well.

Spring or Autumn when the crowds have gone but the weather remains warm. Terrific trails around the lake. You are literally walking or if you choose to take a dip, then swimming, in a volcano. Plenty of great spots to have a picnic. We went to a local supermarket; picked up a cooked chicken and baguette and then some local Saint Nectaire cheese and i can honestly say it was one of the best 10 meals I have ever had. Photos after were hard to tell which way up they were, so clear, and often still, is the water. Parked up at the east end and went clockwise. Few more portaloos wouldn't go amiss though.

Pretty French glacial fed lake in the French Alps with magnificent mountain backgrounds. An area with activities if you wish or you can relax and picnic.
