    We visited the Lake Pavin family with 2 children (ages 9 and 5) they loved to run, climb, taking pictures on the rocks in the Lake were set, stopping to take a lot of photo 1 hour really quietly. I you Council this ready-made Lake of Super Besse less than 5 minutes by car, there are places for this park and a small restaurant at the foot of the Lake for ice cream or a drink in is good fit friendly. We can go with a sporty type 3-wheeled stroller. There are roots that comes out has some place but not insurmountable.

    The Auvergne has nothing to envy to the Canadian Lake. Lake Pavin resembles one of these postcards from beyond the Atlantic. We recommend the hike that starts from the Lake and continues until the Montchal puy for a magnificent view. Ideal for a head to head with the nature.

    Very beautiful Lake. The tour is made in 1 hour walking quietly. Rather flat. Provide hiking shoes as many roots coming out of Earth, pieces of rocks and mud in some places. Not practicable in a stroller. The exhibition at the entrance to the Lake is very interesting. To do if you're in the area.

    Beautiful Lake located in the center of a Puy. A very pleasant walk circling the Lake, cool through the trees and with views of the Lake and its vegetation. I highly recommend, this is a must see! Swimming is prohibited because a lot of depth. Public toilets available.

    The setting is breathtaking! The color of water is a hypnotic blue. 😵

    Beautiful Lake. Possibility to eat on the spot. The pedals were not available when we came here for July 14.
