Beautiful place to visit for all ages. Well worth a visit. Fantastic scenery, lots to do. Swimming in the lake was lovely, even if it was a bit chilly!

The lake was very low level, and the family swimming area (man made lake) was good. Toilets and first aid/life guards on site. A good scenic place for a safe wild swim!

Cycled round the lake before stopping for a picnic. We then pumped up our paddle board and spent a fun hour on the lake.

A beautiful picturesque lake in the mountains. Swimming in the summer is a must! The walk round is about 2km and is a nice walk even on a rainy day! You can get public buses there from morzine

It is a mountain lake, above 1000m in altitude. Swimming without wetsuits will be for very short periods only. Nearby, Lac Leman, which never freezes and is at only 374m, never gets above 19 Celsius. I swam there 2 weeks... More
