Lac Perrin

Lake in Roquebrune-sur-Argens

  • Lake Perrin is an artificial lake situated below the Rock of Roquebrune. The site used to be a sand quarry and was exploited for about forty years before being filled with water.

  • The lake covers about 30 hectares and its water comes from the River Argens.
    It is of great ecological interest:
    - the western part is strewn with reed beds, providing natural shelter for nesting birds and a spawning ground for fish,
    - the banks of compacted sand make an ideal habitat for the European bee-eater to excavate its tunnels,
    - the grey heron and a host of other bird species have been seen here.

    After the old quarry was filled with water, a beach and watersports centre were created at the lakeside. A number of sports and leisure activities are permitted here, including waterskiing, windsurfing and pedalos. There’s also a mini-golf course which opens for the summer season.
