The pond Bonde to Cabrière Aigues 84390

It is fed by the source of the Mirail who come Luberon and waters of many small tributary streams Direct 
right bank of the Durance as Eze. The pond is located in the valley of Aigues,

Le Fouquet Agoult lord, Baron de Sault, chamberlain of King Rene of Anjou, Count of Provence, decided to create a reserve of water for the castle ofLa Tour d'Aigues and an aqueduct built in the fifteenth century. The pond was thus constituted the irrigation network supply point which supplied the whole valley of Aigues contributing to the expansion of agriculture.

The lake is open for swimming is monitored from July 1 until August 31 on the main beach west side facing the campsite. 
Depending on the intensity of rainfall and the flow of Eze during the winter, Pond sees its level vary according to the season. 
It is not uncommon that the beaches are drowned under water (2010) or, conversely, that the water level is very low throughout the summer.

An outdoor snack and a refreshment bar, next to the campsite, open in high season. Four tennis courts are available all year.
