Lake Saint Pardoux in the Haute-Vienne

In the middle of unspoilt countryside, the Lake Saint Pardoux resort is a major tourist attraction in the Haute-Vienne and the Limousin. It’s also a leisure centre for local clients and families mainly coming from the urban area of Limoges. Nestling in the heart of the Limousin forest, this 330-ha lake is the ideal place for water and outdoor sports.

Three centres have been created:
Santrop: the welcome centre at the entrance to the lake,
Chabannes: welcomes youngsters and groups,
Fréaudour: orientated towards water sports (water skiing…) and welcoming residential tourists.
