Le lac du Verney

The Lac du Verney covers an area of 75 ha at an altitude of 725 metres and has a variable depth. The dam built by EDF between 1979 and 1984 is a hydro-electric power station, we invite you to visit the museum dedicated to it and to take a walk on the lake shore. Prefer the left bank, and when you reach the end of the lake, take part of the road for about 500m and turn left towards Le Villaret. Attention, swimming is forbidden.
