Explore the Lac des Settons, minus the water
This is a sight that you’ll only see once every 12 years or so, and it began on 16 August 2022. We are talking about the process of emptying the ‘Lac des Chettons’ as it is known by the locals of Morvan. This significant job will take several months and it means that France’s most ancient dam, built in 1855, can undergo renovation work!
During this operation, don’t panic because you can still enjoy the activities around the lake, including cycling or off-road electric scooter rides!
The process of refilling the lake will begin in winter and watersports are expected to resume during the spring holidays of 2023!
