The Lakes of Haut-Bugey

Lake Nantua & Lake Genin two places of great natural beauty!

Located in the north of Bugey both Lake Nantua and Lake Genin are places of great natural beauty.  Both lakes are very well known for pike fishing as well as swimming in Lake Genin and sailing and waterskiing on Lake Nantua.  The tree covered mountains that surround the lakes are a haven for walkers, hikers, cyclists and mountain bikers with a vast range of circuits and trails available for all 4 activities.  During the winter months this part of Bugey becomes covered with a blanket of snowWinter sports become the order of the day, particularly cross country skiing.  However, with the aid of snowshoes it is still possible to use some of the area's walking trails.  At this time of year, Lake Genin becomes completely frozen over and turns into a wonderful natural skating rink.  The area surrounding the 2 lakes is also rich in history.  Here you will find everything from Roman ruins, to beautiful chateaus, to the French Resistance Museum in Nantua.  Both Lake Genin and Lake Nantua are well serviced by campsites and camping car facilities.  There is also an extensive range of gîtes available in the area as well as some pleasant local hotels.
