The lake covers about 30 hectares and its water comes from the River Argens.
It is of great ecological interest:
- the western part is strewn with reed beds, providing natural shelter for nesting birds and a spawning ground for fish,
- the banks of compacted sand make an ideal habitat for the European bee-eater to excavate its tunnels,
- the grey heron and a host of other bird species have been seen here.
After the old quarry was filled with water, a beach and watersports centre were created at the lakeside. A number of sports and leisure activities are permitted here, including waterskiing, windsurfing and pedalos. There’s also a mini-golf course which opens for the summer season.
