DescriptionThe Lac Vert or Green Lake certainly deserves its name !
Set in an exceptional natural environment, this site is accessible to all the family.
The extraordinary transparency of the water allows one to observe the accumulation of trees and plants on the bed of the lake.
These elements, combined with the presence of blue-green algae, give the lake its remarkable emerald green colour.
Altitude: 1200m. Magnificent view of Mont Blanc
