The Lac des Chavants is a small lake near the Prarion lift station in Les Houches. It is a small recreation area which includes the lake, a small restaurant, a playground and a rock climbing area. The Les Houches tennis club is right next to the playground. There is a small walkway around the lake with decent views of the Mont Blanc Massif.


We got a nice trail starting at Lac des Chavants towards the pictoresque hamlet of Vaudagne. This is a nice family and dog friendly trail with a nice variety of scenery.
