Lake Saint-Cassien

If you can tear yourselves away from your understated, luxurious B&B accommodation at the Mas des Romarins, at just over 20 minutes away is one of the most popular attractions in and around Fayence. The Lac de St Cassien offers almost 1500 acres of stunning forests and emerald waters, complemented by a rich selection of flora and fauna.  Spread across four districts within the surrounds of Fayence:  Tanneron, Callian, Les Adrets de l’Esterel and Montauroux.

On and around the lake, dozens of activities are on offer.  Firstly why not try one of the many aquatic offerings available: from kayaking, canoeing and paddle-boarding, to rowing, sailing, pedallos, catamaraning or giant inflatables on the water, there's a myriad of choices for all tastes and levels of ability, whether you’re away with friends or family, the  choice is yours.

On the shores of the lake why not discover the great fishing on offer, St Cassien is renowned as being one of the best European destinations for Perch and Pike, rumour has it the lake boasts some of the largest specimens around !

For the more sportier amongst you, there’s a trekking circuit of some 16km that winds its way around the lake and through the forest, offering glimpse of the flora and fauna on offer in this protected area.  If a shorter walk is more up your street, there is a half hour’s walk through the Fondurane park, which is managed by the regional CEN (Conservation of natural areas within the PACA region), which offers shelter for some 180 species of birds as well as rare types of oak tree.

Some activity centres around the lake also offer electric mountain bike hire or even horse riding around the lake’s myriad of tracks.

On the other hand if you’re looking for a more relaxed and chilled time around the lake, there are several beaches, well equipped with sun loungers, lifeguarded bathing, sunbathing opportunities and of course lunch with your feet in the water.
