And as I made my way through the hole, I got my reward with this little fairy-tale scene. A small lake (more exactly a reservoir) that could be reached in this adventurous way, and the path down to the lake was quite steep. The illusion was only disturbed by the two cars that revealed that there was an easier route to the lake. And, indeed, when I eventually god hold of a map, I found there is a direct footpath to Saint-Rémy. But if you take that route, you will never see this beautiful view.
