Disappointing visit - No free beaches & not dog friendly
Jun 2020 • Friends
Was rather dissapointed with the lac.
We usually go to Annecy Lac but thought we would stop here on the way back from a mini break in the south. It does not compare.
Couldn’t find any beaches free beaches. Ridiculous that you have to pay to go into the “beaches”. Even if we didn’t have the dog we wouldn’t want to pay the €5 entry fee. All rather commercial!

Lovely Summer Outing
Jul 2019
I picked up two families and my wife and drove from Lyon to this lake just for a day out! We had carried our al our beach gear and had some takeaway food. We found a parking spot (luckily) coz it's almost impossible except for th epatient ones and then settled down to enjoy the lake!

We really had a lovely time just swomming and letting the kids play with water!

It is ok but
Jul 2019 • Family
Paying to use a beech on a lake is a bit much. We don’t do this in Britain.
Lake is clear for sure, nice trees and alike but so so busy. Parking is a nightmare. Would strongly advise to look elsewhere.

Best lac in the region
Jul 2018 • Family
This lake has natural boundaries and is 70 m deep and no motor boats - excellent for nature and swimming. Rent a pedalo and off you go! Water temp is better than other lacs in the region. I found the water clean and clear.
Carefully select a restaurant because some are quite average and others good!

Activities in the lake
Jul 2018 • Family
We spent an amazing day in Saint Alban Plage. Access price is 5 eur/ person ( expensive I think) and there is free parking next to the entrance. There is a small beach, lockers, restaurant ( hot dogs, burguers, salads... with reasonable prices) and you can rent Stand up paddle (10 €/h per person), pedalo ( 24 €/h the big one with toboggan for 6 persons).

Day out
Jul 2018 • Couples
One of my favourite places to have a relaxing time sitting, reading and soaking up the sun. The warmest lake in Europe so I have told. Enjoy warm waters to swim in.

French Alps Lake
May 2017 • Couples
Lac d'Aiguebelette is located high in the French Alps and we visited as part of our grand tour of all countries bordering the Alps.

The scenery is breathtaking deep blue waters and snow capped mountains. Great picnic spot.

And breathe...

With a surface area of 5.45 km2 and a depth of 71 meters it is one of the largest natural lakes of France. A perfect location for a day-trip outside the city. One and a half hour drive of Lyon, bring a picnic and settle on the lake shore.

Some "beaches" offer rentals for canoes and pedal boats, a fun way to get playful in the water!
