The Great Park was built in 1842 to resamble an English garden .

The lake s well-tended beaches and great climate ( 2,100 sunny hours a year) make it a good place to relax or try out some water sports : the lake is shaped like is an ellipse and is one of the best suited for water sports in Europe.
