  • If you are in this area of Aydat, this site is a definite must. Around the Lake which is 5 km is on foot or by mountain bike. At certain location, wonderful views of the Lake. Walks with donkeys for children also nice in the forest. And with the Sun it is an unforgettable day. There is even a campsite next to the Lake and restaurants as a small local market.

  • Gorgeous setting with wild handles where even the largest have want to play Robinson. For the tour it is better to be resistant and well shod in wet weather. A small rise in forest, which allows to get high. The recreated wetland allows to observe animals and birds with discretion, especially at dusk. Photographers are feasting.

  • the Lake and its surroundings are beautiful. The area is very relaxing and very close to Clermont-ferrand.
