French Lake Holidays

Hi
Having just come back from Cornwall where we used our SIB to the max I am looking for a destination on a lake in France next year where we can camp in our tent and use our boat to the max again.
I know of Biscarosse however, I am open to further suggestions.
I am aware that a lot of lakes will not let you use a motorised boat unless it is electrically propelled.

We went to Lac D'Bourget a few years back, it was amazing!

Google Image Result for http://www.savoie-mont-blanc.com/var/smb/storage/images/media/images/activites-et-detente/baignade-nautisme/baignade-au-lac-du-bourget-plage-de-chatillon/25790-5-eng-GB/Bathing-in-Lake-Bourget-Chatillon-beach.jpg

The website takes a while to load for some reason. I'd check if powerboats are still allowed, we took a Fletcher and had a great time water skiing / wakeboarding. Amazing secenery and camping near the lake. Marine and concrete slip with beach one end for launching etc.

Lac Serre Poncon (second largest artificial lake in Europe). No speedlimits, lots of campgrounds directly on the lake.

Not quite a lake, but Morbihan is as close as you get & it's salty

Many thanks again.
I am currently looking at Lake Annency which is a clear favourite with the family at the moment.
Having never been to the Alps region I am quite keen on the idea.
