Lac Vert (Chésery)

The Lac Vert is situated at 1'980m, just a stone's throw from the Franco-Swiss border. One of the loveliest and most accessible of destinations in the Portes du Soleil, the sunny banks of this pristine alpine lake offer panoramic views over the surrounding mountains. It is easy to get here from the local villages, making it a popular picnic destination for families. The lake is also an excellent fishing spot!
