We camped overnight at Natua. I will always remember its poignant War Memorial, fittingly situated beside its stunning lake. The memorial remembers and honours those Nantua residents who were torn from their homes and deported to German concentration camps. Few returned. A more fitting place for this memorial would be hard to find. I was never sadder than when photographing this Memorial.

We just stopped for a couple of hours on our way to the Alps. The weather was beautiful, it was September and very quiet. I should imagine in the season it would be very busy as the lake offers many different things.
We had a small lunch at one of the few open cafes and generally just relaxed before continuing on on our journey.

Save your time and petrol. Despite a pretty glacier lake, the town is dying and there is nothing to make a visit worthwhile. Availability of the famous local crayfish quenelles seems to have also died.

Autumn will always be my favorite time of the year ...and Nantua Lake is one of the romantic spots in Nantua during autumn. Well, we have visited the place several times, but still autumn is the best...

Lovely ambiance, lines of trees, swans swirling around teasing you and ducks quacking merrying the place...Truly heaven for me and my family...

We haven't tried swimming here, though..perhaps if you get nice, hot summer you can do that...

If you like taking pictures, then get your gears and have fun...
