Our top 4

bathing areas

I can’t, I’ve got aquaponey! That’s your motto for this summer! A summer of relaxation and swimming. Alone, with family or friends, our lakes will bring you the “zenitude” you need.


Torcy lake

On your marks… Ready? Paddle!

Just a stone’s throw from Le Creusot, a 120-hectare area awaits you to make the most of your paddle or canoe. Approved for international competitions, Lac de Torcy regularly hosts rowing competitions, including the French championships. Is that all? Well, no. Lac de Torcy is also an ideal place to cool off! And it’s all just a few minutes from Le Creusot.

So, shall we take a dip?


Lake Montaubry

Picnicking, lounging or taking the plunge

Fancy a picnic in the shade or just lounging by the water? Spread over 128 ha, Lac de Montaubry is big enough to find a little spot all to yourself. It features a small beach, the plage des Patins, which will get you on the road to vacation right away. With its gentle slope, it’s the perfect place for children to swim and play with their inflatable toys. With several shaded picnic tables, it’s the ideal place to meet up with friends and enjoy a drink as the sun goes down. The more sporty can also bring their own paddle or book an introduction to water-skiing at the club.

There’s something for everyone!


Berthaud pond

Do your children want to swim, inflate their orcas or unicorns?…

… and you want to take a break? Sit in the shade and do nothing but relax? Berthaud is sure to please. This small 50-hectare pond, located halfway between Le Creusot and Montceau, boasts a beach that’s very popular with families, as well as numerous shaded areas. And beyond the swimming, you can enjoy a 2 km trail to discover the surrounding flora and fauna.

Something to delight young and old alike.


Lac du Plessis

A haven of freshness right in the center of town!

Just 2 km from the town center, Lac du Plessis becomes a children’s paradise in July and August, offering a wide range of activities on and around the water. Pedal-boating, mini-golf, rock-climbing, inflatables… it’s all there for kids to dream about!

And best of all, the beach is supervised in summer.
