    Large volcanic Lake preserved in a sumptuous décor very nice and exciting walk around the Lake with an arrow route, explanations and points of view (a chain of volcanoes). Nice promenade and pleasure of the photographers on the pontoons (with an Observatory) of the redeveloped where wetland nature, birds and other animals have their place. A great success to stress.

    Certainly a little disappointed, because the Lake was closed to swimming. But we love going around the Lake by the wooded path. Water activities are varied. There is also a beach in grass for the lazy, with lot of shadow. The Lake is near the city tour, twenty minutes from Clermont-Ferrand.

    The scenery is beautiful but 13eurs for an hour to pedal a bit expensive and public restrooms are very clean and there was no SOAP to wash their hands. We caught avos a pot at the restaurant bar server was welcoming

    Beautiful beautiful Lake setting, around the Lake is about 5km. But be careful swimming in the Lake is currently prohibited due to the toxicity of the water (algae). So do not eat the fish and do not swim.

    The setting is very nice. It is possible to rent a paddleboat or canoe to walk around the Lake. In good weather the lessor was stormed and the wait is a little long.
