Lac de Frace is a small lake surrounded by a walking path and equipped with an observatory. Completely in the shade, it is a very pleasant site for a short hike with the family. It is easy to observe different birds for an introduction to children or beginners in birding.

Ce petit lac est entouré d'un sentier de promenade et équipé d'un observatoire. Totalement à l'ombre, c'est un site très agréable pour un courte randonnée en famille. Il est simple d'observer différents oiseaux pour une initiation aux enfants ou débutants dans l'ornithologie.



A parking lot is located right next to the lake. You can go around it on foot, by bike or also in a wheelchair.
