Here is a slice of pure paradise east of Troyes, where earth and forest have given birth to a unique site, the fruit of nature and of man. 22,000 hectares of forest, centuries-old oaks, a gem in the socalled “wet” Champagne, the Forêt d’Orient Regional Nature Reserve
It is in this land of streams and ponds that the artificial lakes were constructed to control the flow of the Seine and Aube Rivers.
These lakes offer water-based activities of your choice: Lake Orient dedicated to sailing, Temple Lake reserved for fishing and Lake Amance dedicated to boating.
For biking lovers, the lakes can be reached from Troyes via a bikeway - the Green Lane - which runs along the entire length.
