Lake Vieilles Forges (Ardennes)

Between the ridges of the Ardennes and the meanders of theMeuse, Lake Vieilles Forges looks just like a Canadian lake. Lined by forests and grassland fields, surrounded by hills, it is a place where nature reigns supreme. A reservoir created to provide for the electricity needs of the region, it has a surface area of more than 140 hectares.  
A paradise for hikers and fishermen: carp, roach, bream, zander, pike, perch all await willing anglers. The tour of the lake is a beautiful 11.6 km walk. While preserving this wilderness, the Département Council of Ardennes has developed a remarkable leisure facility on the lake's banks: water sports, an area of 1,000 square metres for concerts, shows and sporting events.  
A genuine sandy beach allows lifeguarded swimming from 15 June to 15 September.
