wealth of energy and vitality as it is about experiencing serenity and relaxation.
Firstly appreciate the exceptional surroundings and landscape composed of the blue
water, the green forests and the white
snow. The panoramic views of the lake and the mountains
are non evasive but nevertheless impressionable. The lake situated at 447 metres
altitude and is overlooked by the Tournette which stands

world. They are attracted by the beauty and by the quality of preservation.
