Feeling the sting of Diversity
Apiland is a gigantic museum …
On Sunday, Brunch & Spa
On the banks of Serre-Ponçon lake, a place that the regulars want to keep a secret: the Paillote du Lac.
In Foreston Bay, just 20 minutes from the Hotel-Restaurant La Robéyère, the Paillote du lac is like a bubble where you can log right off during your stay in Hautes-Alpes.
For a lake-side lunch or starlit dinner, the beach restaurant serves summery cuisine featuring seasonal swordfish a la plancha, an audacious tomato panna cotta and Mozzarella di bufala drizzled with truffle oil.
Overlooking the azure waters of Serre-Ponçon lake, deckchairs lounge on the beach beckoning you to chill out in the sun. Or you can enjoy a game of beach volley, badminton, pétanque or table tennis or have fun slack lining. If you feel the allure of the lake, you can hire a kayak or pedal boat to explore the wilderness and creeks.
The day slowly stretches into evening, when the live music starts up.
