Located in the middle of a deep forest and around 95 meters in size, lake Pavin is of volcanic origin. Legend has always said that the lake is one of the gates of hell, and if you throw a stone in it, you could trigger the wrath of Satan. Notwithstanding this rather odd story, Lake Pavin is a very nice place to walk around. It takes roughly an hour and the setting is very nice. In short, a place where you can actually take a break during the holidays.
