  • I there had been a few years previously. Passing in the Hérault, I couldn't resist the urge to see him again, this lovely Red Lake. Beautiful, unobstructed view. We made a little trip on a road overlooking the Lake (attention, 4 x 4 required!). The place quite crowded during peak season, I had preferred to go there out of season. But to see, of course, it is a must!

  • Red volcano landscape exceeding of an artificial lake, is as sumptuous as amazing. This unique landscape in france is to appreciate especially the village than originally planned to be submerged under water. Zen atmosphere, bucolic and are very friendly!

  • This is a great place to spend time if you like being active. The reservoir is huge and has all manner of water sports, windsurfing, kitesurfing, canoeing, sailing and pedalos. There is an area for safe swimming and lifeguards although the reservoir is so large many people free swim. Fishing is also very popular. At the south end there is a camping site and situated near this is a bar and restaurant. Mountain biking is popular around the lake and in summer there is a hire shop and there are a number of vvt marked paths. The area is also good for road bikes with a number of small villages providing coffee stops or just water points from local springs. Not so great if you just want to sunbathe as the shoreline is stone or the highly distinctive red earth.
  • Very quiet, you can camp free.
  • Love
  • Nice lake.
