Located in Velay, at an altitude of 820 metres in the municipality of Lapte, about ten kilometres east of Yssingeaux, Lake Lavalette extends over 220 hectares, at the heart of a beautiful, verdant landscape.
Surrounded by pine trees and fed by the waters of the Lignon, Lake Lavalette has a beach and Respirando-certified leisure centre, making it the ideal place for outdoor activities such as windsurfing, catamaran, stand up paddle, canoe-kayak and swimming. Around the lake, you can enjoy hiking and mountain biking, archery or volleyball, while making the most of a beautiful woodland setting that is both unspoilt and relaxing.
Boasting many small creeks that are ideal for picnics, Lake Lavalette was created when a dam was built. It also has a fishing area, which is open to permit-holders as long as they follow the rules.
