Lakes and Pools

Water is an essential part of our everyday life. Maybe this is why we love being near the water so much, whether it’s a lake, river or even a swimming pool. Have a picnic in a beautiful natural setting on the shores of Lake Retaud or Lake Chavonnes and enjoy a day out in the fresh air.

On hot summer days, what could be a better way of cooling off than a dip in a lake or a swimming pool? Some dive right in whereas others are content to just dip their toes in while gazing at the reflection of the mountains in the water. For people who want to swim all year round, swimming pools are the ideal solution for practicality and fun, giving you a chance to let off steam, keep fit, improve your performance or just find something to do on a rainy day. For individuals, families, friends or couples, there’s something for everyone to enjoy by or in the water.
