Description

The Lac du Val Joyeux stretches for nearly 36 hectares in the middle of the Château-la-Vallière forest. It is fed by the waters of the "La Fare" river. The site is nice and green and is leisure base. It is possible to walk around the lake (6 km), in the shade of the century-old oak trees of the forest. A nice walk that brings plenty of birds. Because many people use the lake for recreation and swimming, bird watching is best done here outside the holidays or early in the day.
