In the south of the lake there are two islands, Le Grand Ile and Le Petit Ile. Along with the several beaches and opportunity for outdoor sports (canoeing, sailing, biking, hiking and rowing), the lake and its surroundings also offer a strong heritage. You will be able to discover numerous places such as ruined castles, chapels, caves, sculptures and more.
