List of lakes of France

The following list of lakes in France roughly distinguishes three categories: the mountain lakes, sorted by massif – and further sorted by départements, the lakes in plains, sorted by river basin, and the coastal lakes.

Lake Geneva (Lac Léman), the largest in western Europe with 582 km², partly in France, partly in Switzerland, is listed in Haute-Savoie for its French part.

Mountain lakes

The lakes of mountain massifs can be natural, often of glaciary origin (G), or volcanic (V), or artificial, generally built for hydraulic energy purposes (H) or flow regulation (F).
