Good place for relax
Nice to relax near the lake. I saw someone fishing too. So clear water and has great views to mont. Blanc.
Magnifique ballade et découverte d'un lieu où la détente et le sport font très bon ménage. Pique-nique, escalade et promenade dans un très joli cadre 😍
Lac vraiment simpas pour pêcher la truite. Endroit très tranquille.
