Taney lake is a tiny piece of paradise at the heart of one of the finest natural reserves in the Alps.
Located at an altitude of 1,500m overlooking the Rhône, it was declared a national natural heritage in the 60’s. Taney lake enjoys an idyllic setting surrounded by mountains. The lakeshores and meadows are covered with a colorful carpet of flowers. To access this jewel, you need to hike up for about one hour (it is fairly steep); or you can take the only car that serves as taxi in here. The effort of the hike will be paid off when you see the lake; it’s really a jaw dropping place. There a few picturesque hostels and restaurants. Our favorite is La Vouivre, they serve great food and it has a lovely terrace facing the lake.
Taney is also a starting point for several magnificent walks including a hike up to the Grammont peak (2,172m) from which you’ll get splendid views.
If you plan to visit, better go early on the weekends or during the week as this is a very appreciated destination and of relatively easy access. Note that camping is not allowed.
