Lamartine Grotto, the secret meeting-place for lovers

"O time, suspend your flight! and you, blessed hours, Suspend your swift passage. Allow us to savor the fleeting delights, Of our most happy days!..." It is said that Alphonse de Lamartine wrote this famous poem in this grotto
He spent many hours in this cave with Julie Charles, before writing the poem 'Le Lac', where he pays homage to the memories of his idyll and the beauty of this wild place.

The cave can easily be seen by boat on the lake, not far from the Petit Port de Bourdeau. A little piece of beach can be made out just before the entrance to the cave.
