Le lac du Salagou
Sport and relaxation
Located in the center of Languedoc, the combination of geological phenomena gives a surprising palette of colors, textures and contrasting shapes.
Lake Salagou was created artificially in the 1960s to allow irrigation of surrounding crops and regulate floods of the river Lergue and the river Herault.
Some numbers about the lake:
- Length: 7km
- Area: 750ha
- Perimeter: 28km
- Depth: 4m to 45m
It is a unique leisure area for lovers of sailing, hiking, or mountain biking, for family outings or simply to relax.
Mount liausson allows the most beautiful view of the lake Salagou. In addition, you will have a panorama on the small village around.
Do not hesitate to take the junction which invites you to go as close as possible to the small village of Celles, finally what remains of the charming little village that the waters of the dam of Salagou should have partially drowned. (The expected rise in water was stopped, sparing the hamlet, but it was too late, the expropriated people had already left their homes.)
