This year was our very first summer in the mountains. It was a last-minute decision. We stayed for only 3 nights even if the very first plan was to stay longer, but the weather wasn’t very nice. Here is the list of the lakes we could visit but also the one we wanted to see but maybe next time.
There are 27 lakes and ponds that should be on your to-do list if you like hiking. You can go by car until one point, then you should take a bus. They leave every 15 minutes and cost 5 euros a round trip, for one people.
To see all the ponds and lakes, better to preview the whole day. The first part of the hike will last between 45 minutes and 1 hour (departure Bouillouse lake or the flood barrier of Bouillouse) till the first pond Viver. The next pond called the Blanck pond (Negre) is only 5 minutes walk from the first one.
This French region offers a lot of activities, also for one who loves the sun, water, sunbathe. After a day of hiking, you can have a rest on the edge of the lake Matemale. There are activities for the children, a bar restaurant where you can have lunch or a cocktail.
There is a free bus from Les Angles. As we were with our car, we chose the parking, 2 or 3 euros for a day.
This is the smallest lake, close to Les Angles village. If you like fishing, this is the perfect place for you and your summer activity. It is open from April until September, 20 minutes by car from Les Angles or 1h hiking. We didn’t go there because of the weather but it is still on our list for the next visit to the region.
