  • We discovered a very beautiful landscape, where you can walk quietly, thanks to the different trails. We particularly appreciated the amphibious red crocodile, special mention for Lucie our guide who was very patient with our 4 year old son. Very well, we ate at the restaurant with good local product. Staff pleasant and attentive.

  • Want:-gig? -to be quiet? -to have bucolic views? If you choose these options, the Lakes of water of an hour will satisfy you! For my part, I only did that part of one of the Lakes, and it took a long time so we can spend the day to hike if you want :) the perfect opportunity to carry your picnic and ask you to the edge of the water. The arrival is a little too paved (car parks) but once we take back, we escape completely :) Good ride!

  • Nice to walk around the lakes. A lot of nature but the noise of the motorboats is soo annoying! They should forbid this!
  • Mooie omgeving met veel wandelroutes.
  • Very vacancies for humain people
  • Slowest restaurant ever ... However no haute cuisine.

  • This place is nice and perfect to make the market regardless of the time of year. The loop of the Plate size is a 17 Km to circumnavigate the Lake. Possibility of many activities such as sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and scuba diving. Don't forget to bring your camera!
