The lake is hidden in a hollow on the left slope of Valle della Dora surrounded by the woods of Roverella and Castagno; it provides some splendid views over the Mont Avic Regional Park and towards Mount Zerbion.
The wetlands around Lake Villa is the only place in Val d’Aosta where water lilies are found and there are also numerous other highly interesting species of flora and fauna. This site is protected as a Regional Nature Reserve.
