  • Nice lake surrounded by mountains . Occasionally you can see chamois grazing. A very pleasant outing on a nice and sunny day

  • Walking around the Nantua Lake will bring you to serenity and peacefulness with a lot to see! Firstly, the exceptional calcareous geologic formations, with the wild nature!

  • What a beautiful place.. so lovely.. Lake is so beautiful with greenish blue shade water.. nice place for swim and fun.. good for kids.. lots of place to just sit and chill.. boating was good.. only peddle boats are available for public.. of course people had their private motor and sail boats...couple of snacks and coffee places... kids park and other small rides...free parking and easy to reach from Geneva and Lyon.. highly recommended for picnic and water fun.. just one thing.. there could be more public toilets with better facilities and better eating places around..
