Lac Pavin

Recommended
Legend has it that the old town of Besse was swallowed up by Lake Pavin as a divine punishment and it was said that throwing a stone into it would unleash terrible storms. However, the view over the glittering waters from the Fraux parking area is far from forbidding. The lake lies in a volcanic crater surrounded by forest, and its waters are populated by char and trout, some of which of amazing size. Ideal for boating and fishing.
