Lake of Sarrans
Sarrans Lake is a 35km long 1000ha artificial lake with a dam. Its steep banks are almost entirely covered in trees and lie in a beautiful protected natural setting.
There is a pleasant picturesque spot where the banks are less steep making them ideal for swimming, fishing and launching boats on the tip of the Laussac peninsula (500m from the campsite entrance). The distance can be longer or shorter depending on hydroelectric requirements and the water level which varies year to year.
Guests can reach the lake banks by the campsite via Reception. We recommend you do not walk straight from the pitches as the banks are steep.
It is free to launch or moor your own motorboat. For your convenience, we hire out spots on the pontoon at the campsite entrance (booking recommended).
Swimming and Water Sports :
There are no lifeguards on the peninsula; there is no danger; the quality and temperature of the water are wonderful.
Use of inflatable boats, canoes and motorboats is permitted to ensure you get the most out of the water. However, the lake is sheltered from the wind which makes it difficult to windsurf.
It is free to jet ski or water ski with your own equipment but we do not hire out any of this equipment on-site.
Don’t worry if you don’t have your own boats : enjoy the lake on pedalos, motorboats and canoes available to rent at Reception.
