About twenty kilometres from Le Puy-en-Velay, a beautiful circular lake of volcanic origin, located at an altitude of 1,205 metres, awaits visitors in Haute-Loire. Located in the municipalities of Cayres and Le Bouchet-Saint-Nicolas, this 44-hectare expanse of water resembling a Canadian lake is a magnificently preserved natural site surrounded by pine, larch, beech and spruce trees.
This is the place to come for peace and quiet, while enjoying a superb landscape from a shaded path dotted with benches that allows you to walk around the lake in 45 minutes.
The water quality makes the lake ideal for fishing and diving, and there is also a beach where swimming is supervised in July and August, so you can relax with family and friends.
Feel free to stop by the lake's restaurant, where you can enjoy the view from the pleasant terrace while sipping a drink or enjoying a meal.
