What an amazing place! The water is a turquoise blue and clean. The beaches are pebbles, so take wet shoes. Lots to see and do on the water, including kite boarding, windsurfing, swimming and boats to hire.

We started our walk from Treffort. The walk takes you arround this enormous artifical lake of 600 hectares large. You will walk next to the lake, in a forrest and over 2 suspended bridges. Make sure you book your boat trip back before you leave.
