In 2012, Lac des Sapins opened the largest natural swimming pool in Europe (8000 m²).
Along with all these activities, the Lac puts on events throughout the year. Sports events like the Lac des Sapins Triathlon, concerts, sound and light shows, etc.
Famous throughout the world for its wines and vineyards, the Beaujolais is also a region shaped by man, who has reaped the benefits of the soil's diversity. Its past is literally written in stone: in the golden, red, white, grey or black rocks and stones that have visibly been put to good use in local construction. This remarkable geology has given rise to great diversity, not only in the landscapes and heritage, but also in terms of human activity, in the culture and traditions that form the identity of the Beaujolais region.
