Not being able to swim is too bad after a warm hike up. However the trail is shady most of the way. It was just rather crowded with people. Next time we might push on to the higher lake, Promenaz. Walking up from the train station was due to our poor planning as there are buses available if you time it right. Walking through Vieux Servoz was pretty.

The lake is very pretty with the crystal clear water and greenish colour! It is a nice walk around the lake.

Small lake but very tranquil. Fish in water but no swimming as water stagnant.

Nice to walk around great for a picnic. Cafe and car park.

You can drive but actually the walk is lovely up this beautiful valley and through woods. We took the short sports route to the top - quite full on but worth it. That means you come in above the very attractive lake spot and then can have a pleasant little stroll around before grabbing a coffee and then descending back down by a slightly gentler route.

Quite a drive to get there - it was worth it though. Some really good views en route, and once at the top, good hiking. Lovely lake and pools.

It's only a short hike from the parking spot. We went here even though there were huge amounts of snow. Still doable. The lake is not so impressive once it's all covered in snow though

Smaller than expected and popular with dog-walkers and young families, the lake itself is neither peaceful nor particularly beautiful. The walk to the lake from the main car park at Plaine Joux takes about 20-30 minutes, but you can drive to the restaurant car park on the edge of the lake itself. The path round takes about 10 minutes, but it gets busy during holiday season. It maybe nicer off-season on a quiet day or even in winter?

Too shallow and murky for swimming (Lac de Passy in the valley is far better for that).
Not even nice for a picnic. I'd say give it a miss.

In an idyllic setting among towering pines, this a delightful please to spend a while to relax, picnic or just stroll around the crystal clear lake. The walk takes 20 minutes or so at a normal adult strolling pace?

We visit here during our family vacation in france. It is possible to arrive all the to lac vert by car but I recommend, if you have the time and effort, to combine it with a short hike. There are several short hiking trails to the lake and return that provides forest experience together with some sceneric views of the Mont blanc.
The lake itself indeed spectacular. Although it is quite small, the combination of interesting color ( water looks green) with the sourounding mountains makes it a worth to visit place. Don't miss the spectacular view of Montblanc from the parking area near the restaurant to finish the tour.
Please share and mark as usefull if you find it valuable for you.
