Remoray lake and nature reserve

Smaller and more discreet than the neighbouring Saint-Point lake, tne lake of Remoray has a charm of its own! Still wild and unspoilt, for over 40 years it has benefited from the status of national nature reserve, proof of its great biological wealth. Here between the marshes, peat bogs, forests and meadows, you can observe:

Don't forget your binoculars, because this is a choice spot for observing coots, great crested grebes, ring-necked ducks, teals and many other waterfowl!

A place for families to walk and swim

The best place to walk to soak up the peace and quiet of this wilderness? The tiny lake of La Seigne adjoining that of Remoray. An itinerary has been built to accommodate pushchairs all the way around the lake, which is teeming with ducks and other waterfowl, while the surrounding forests and meadows are home to our beloved Montbéliarde cows. 

It's quite possible to indulge in the pleasure of swimming in Remoray lake without disturbing the local plant and wildlife. Although the banks of the lake are protected under strict rules, there is nevertheless a small beach where lifeguards are on duty in summer. This enchanting spot is ideal for those who want to take a dip or laze on the beach. To complete the picture, there's a small and very pleasant recreation area with play features, a picnic table and even a football pitch. There's no chance of the children getting bored here!
