A little history: The Ilettes lakes were created in 1977

In 1976 a meeting was held between Sallanches and Saint-Martin for the development of Lac des Ilettes. This area located on the territory of Sallanches but bordering with the municipality of Saint-Martin could only be developed by a common agreement of the two municipalities.

In 1977, the development of Ilettes will help the merger of St Martin and Sallanches.
For the construction of the future white highway, this area will be reserved for the extraction of materials.
Two other large lakes will be updated to be subsequently developed into a tourist site.

Today it is a beautiful place of relaxation for all
