I accidentally stumbled here when I was planning to see montagne Saint Victoire. This place, however is much better. I stayed here for over an hour enjoying the beauty of this lake.

Nice views on the lake and the Sainte-Victoire Mountain. Pretty high dam. You need a car or a bike to get there from Aix-en-Provence. It can be crowded on a nice week-end.
