A few tips

Before walking or swimming in the lake, it is best to wear protection such as water shoes or sandals. You must provide sufficient drinking water for all walks. For longer walks also a snack or food. On the way there is rarely anything to obtain

Attention! from 1 July 2018, the maximum permitted speeds on secondary roads in France will change. You may then only drive 80 Km/h instead of 90. Be warned. Nowadays there are many speed cameras along the road that check in both directions. Warning devices that indicate the exact speed camera locations are prohibited. Devices that indicate the 'dangerous zones' are allowed.

In Saint-André-les-Alpes, about 20 Km away, there is a Dutch-speaking doctor, Doctor Lieven Lambrecht. Driving to St André the doctor's office is just after the first roundabout on the left side of the road.
