The Pourettes lake is a mountain lake of natural origin at 1810 m of altitude which is located on the heights of the resort side Recoin (1650).
This small high-altitude lake has a long shape following the terrain near the hiking trail to Robert Lakes.
It benefits from a preserved environment and offers a pleasant panorama in an intimate setting.
The lake gets its name from the wild chives that grow on its shores. This natural site is also known for alpine newts (lizard-like amphibians) who like to take refuge there and who need to be approached quietly to hope to see them.

A first stop on a hike to the Robert Peaks and Lakes. The lake is also on the passage of the hiking trail coming from the parking lot of Casserousse (on the D111 side Seiglières).
Opening periodAll year round.
