The lake of Settons is located in the park of Morvan. It is difficult to get to know because it is not so easy to get to (remember to prepare your itinerary well). This walk is mainly a discovery of the lake of Settons on foot or by mountain bike. The lake is the ideal place to walk with your family and enjoy swimming and water activities on a beautiful summer day. The lake can be very busy during the high season but from September onwards (the best time of the year) the numbers drop off quickly. There is no cycle path around the lake, so you sometimes have to use the road.
