"LAKE OF SALAGOU. This lake is..." Montpellier Off The Beaten Path Tip by GUYON

Montpellier Off The Beaten Path: 34 reviews and 39 photos


LAKE OF SALAGOU. This lake is not natural : it was recently created by flooding a valley. The rocks are red, the trees are green and the water is blue, together they make a coloured spectacle.
In the neighborhood, do not miss : 1)Celle, a village which owed to be flooded but the calculation was wrong and the village is still visible but protected by a wall to prevent vandalism.
2) Cirque of Mourèze : with its curiously shaped rocks.
3) Villeneuvette : a village erected arround a factory of 17° century.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
