Around Grand-Lieu Lake (Loire-Atlantique)


Lake Grand-Lieu is the largest natural lake on the French plain. In winter, the lake is fed by the waters of the Loire and surrounding rivers. It then reached an area of 6,000 hectares. In summer, the waters of the lake evaporate and its surface area decreases to approximately 1,000 hectares. Lake Grand-Lieu is of great ecological importance. It is an important habitat for many bird species, including the gray heron, white stork and mallard duck. The lake is also a breeding ground for fish, including pike, pike perch and eel.
