Something like Canada

A vast lake, with fir trees – like in Canada. This is “Lac des St PEYRES”.

The Gorges receive the waters from the river Arn where a hydro electric dam was built in the 1920s. It is now a paradise for fishermen.

Gorges under gard

From the 10th century, the”Chateau de Montlédier” watches over the gorges and the valley. In 1000 years, it had different adventures, becoming a nightclub, then a hotel. And today, it seems to look for a new owner… for a new story.
