This is a first category lake (approx. 20 hectares) that originated during the Middle Ages, like many of Limousin’s lakes. It was once owned by the Grandmont monks. It is used for fishing (no swimming) and has a “handipêche” station (adapted for visitors with disabilities)
“Le parleur” fishing trail that feeds the lake is also a 1st category trail. (http://larloiseenglish.jimdo.com/fishing-in-france-rules-and-laws/).
