Le Plan d’Eau de Flumet (Val d’Arly)

Have you ever been to 💦 Flumet’s Plan d’Eau? If not, then MBFF highly recommends a visit!

The little swimming lake is located within the 🌈 Base de Loisirs de l’Arrondine . . . which means that, as well as the lake, you’ll find a playground, skatepark and a terrain multi-sports on-site.

Swimming lake

The 💦 lake is just lovely! It is surrounded by plenty of grass to lay out towels and picnic blankets, and you’ll find shade under the 🌳 trees.

The 💦 lake is also small, which is particularly appealing for families with very young children, as you can keep an eye on them much more easily!

You’ll find pebbles underfoot, but there is sand down at one end of the lake and 🏖 a little sandpit.

For older children there is a raft to swim out to.

Eating options

This small lake is a popular 🍏 picnic spot and there are some picnic tables available . . . there is also a snack bar at one end of the lake – Snack Bar du Plan d’Eau (also serving good meals) – and a restaurant with a pretty terrace at the other end – Le Restaurant du Lac.

Playground & Skatepark

You’ll have 🌈 a playground and terrain multi-sport on-site at 💦 Flumet’s Plan d’Eau, as well as a skatepark, so pack all your necessary balls and equipment! There is no shade here, so you’ll want to visit in the morning or later afternoon during a summer visit.

Activities nearby

The 💦 Plan d’Eau de Flumet is located right next to 💦 the Arrondine river, which is shallow enough for wading (disclaimer: always keep an eye on children).

If you are driving from 🏔 Le Pays du Mont-Blanc, you’ll also pass the 🐺 3D Nordic kennels (read about MBFF’s experience husky sledding here) so you could reserve to visit. Or, you could book a session of canirando (my son loved his day!).

La Fête du Plan d’Eau

Every year in late July is the 💦 Fête du Plan d’Eau at Flumet. The MBFF team went along a couple of years ago, and had a blast!

Sometimes, there is a 60m ephemeral ventrigliss water slide, which runs down the hill and into the water! You can choose to go down on an inflatable, and on our visit we saw 🍦ice-creams, 🍉 watermelons, 🍕 pizzas and 🐊 crocodiles zooming past! (you buy tokens for this).

There were plenty of other activities too: waterballs, paddle board battles, ⛵️ mini-boats, spectacles . . .
