If you are arriving from the north we recommend the route via Metz, Nancy, Lyon, Avignon. In Aix-en-Provence take the A8 towards Nice. If you are traveling from the south of Germany or from Italy we recommend the route via Switzerland (vignette) via Milan and Genoa direction Nice on the A8. Stay on A8 direction Cannes and take the exit number 39 “Fayance / Les Adrets". Take direction "Fayence / Lac de St Cassien" and turn to the left after about 1.2 km to "Les Esterets du Lac. After about 1 km you follow the road to the right into the "Domaine Les Esters du Lac."
