“Guest day trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

We took the chair lift and then thecable car to the top and walked round the lake. The views were breathtaking, and there was still snow on the mountains while we basked in glorious sun.

“Pristine lake, beautiful walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012 via mobile

We caught the telecabine then chair lift then walked an easy flat 15 minutes to save doing the 1 hour uphill walk to arrive at the beautiful green tinged Lac de Gaube surrounded by mountain peaks. Incredible. We decided to return by foot, down a rocky path, that was slow going in parts and a little slippery, arriving at Pont D'Espagne over the clear torrents of cascading water. All up about 3.5 hours return for an incredible experience.

“Lac de Gaube Re-visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

As always Lac de Gaube is a sight to behold, magnificent. Last year I recommended the hostelerie, however this year we didn't eat there because the staff were not welcoming, would not allow us to sit alongside the lake and threw the menu down on to the table. We left and decided to eat at the Hotellerie at Pont d'Espagne, which was EXCELLENT

“A splendid lake easy to reach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

Part of the port de espagna park. Getting there is easy. View is fantastic. There is a small cafe for those who enjoy a cafe by the lake experience.
