The fishing 


The Hameau des Lacs is located directly on the edge of the lake of Villefranche de Panat, on the course of the Alrance river on the Lévézou plateau. With a surface area of 192 hectares and a depth of 25 meters, it offers some bays and numerous sandy beaches.

Easy access, fishing is possible in many places ... you can even fish by boat.
You will find pike, pikeperch and other perches.
The perches measure on average 20 cm, the pikeperch has an average catch size of 50 cm, but the pike is more discreet and reserved for experienced fishermen!

It is a famous fishing spot in the Aveyron, but you will find many others in the surrounding area.
