  • This is a colourful and atmospheric area by the lake. Plenty of restaurants to sit and enjoy the view and watch the world go by. Don't miss the old fishing area 
  • It is in my opinion, the most beautiful area of the city! Very nice view from the Town Hall Square, the tourist office and the jet of water! From the city, you can go down by car or cable car, this inexpensive allows to take nice pictures! the small fishing port is typical, there is the pier for destinations to the Switzerland and around the high Lake with meal onboard! beautiful ballads on the Marina with children who can run and ride a bike! The municipal beach pools are at the end of the walk and if we keep one can always walk at the chateau of Ripaille and join by the edge of the Lake, (entrance by the beach of the pine forest) space of Saint Disdille with picnic tables, and a small family and friendly lunchroom (at Dom)! Next, the entrance to Port only frosty feet up to the mouth of the Drance to the reserve birds! Finally on the port a lot of restaurants and eateries under the plane trees to quench their thirst and taste famous perch fillets! (Delish)
