Lac Saint Cassien

Lac Saint Cassien was originally intended for the production of hydroelectric power, but is now a fabulous recreational area and a great alternative to the crowded Mediterranean beaches in the summer. The lake extends over 3 towns in the Pays de Fayence (Tanneron, Montauroux, Callian) and Les Adrets de l'Estérel, 30 minutes from Cannes and 20 minutes from Fréjus.

There are several waterside restaurants and a good selection of boat hire areas with a large selection of canoes, pedalos and paddleboards.
