Le Lac des Settons

Welcome to a haven of peace and tranquility on the shores of Lac des Settons, in the heart of the regional parc du Morvan…

Activities and sightseeing around the Lac des Settons

The Lac des Settons itself offers a variety of activities to suit a range of interests such as walking, cycling, swimming, sailing, windsurfing and fishing.

Around the lake you’ll find restaurants, bars, a convenience store, gift shops and a salon de thé (tea room).
Every Thursday in July and August there is a small market alongside the lake selling clothes and locally produced food, while you will find a larger market every Thursday morning in the nearest town, Montsauche-les-Settons.

Slightly further afield, larger supermarkets can be found in the neighbouring towns of Château Chinon and Saulieu. And it’s just a short car journey away to horse riding activities, quad biking, white water rafting and canoeing.

The 13Kms (8 miles) walk along the edge of the lake is a great way to experience the natural beauty of the Lac des Settons. The walk follows a well marked track around the lake, with board walks provided to cross any muddy areas. Towards the top of the lake you will find a boardwalk with a bird watching area.

We offer bicycles for hire directly on the campsite. Perfect to ride the circular route around the beautiful Lac des Settons.
