About Us

Located in the heart of the Aiguilles Rouges Nature Reserve, one of the most beautiful mountain lakes, famous for its unique panorama facing the Mont-Blanc Massif.

Please note: in order to preserve the mountain lakes, swimming is now prohibited in the Lac Blanc and the Lacs des Chéserys by prefectural decree.

The lake is made up of two parts. The place offers an exceptional panorama of the Mont-Blanc massif. Its picture-postcard landscape has seduced tourists from all over the world for decades.

Further information :
Dogs are not accepted because the lake is within the perimeter of the nature reserve.

Tips and Suggestions :
Be careful, high altitude lakes are fragile! Respect the area: avoid swimming or doing your dishes there, trampling on wetlands, launching watercraft (buoys, paddles, etc.) and throwing nothing into the lake (stones, waste ).
