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.
