  • The lake itself wasn't that much to write home about; for me the attraction to the area was the surroundings - the passes, the forests, the towns. The lake felt a bit characterless - pretty enough...

  • Lac De Matemale and it's neighbouring village is a good stopping off point while travelling in the high Aude valley just before the Spanish border.
  • Beautifull scenery worth the trip
  • Great for cycling around the lake. Numerous activities for children and relaxing. Parking can be complicated during August
  • I had the most wonderful winter vacation for the first time. The view around the lake was mesmerizing, the white snow and the sunshine. Though this lake is a man made the view on both sides are very beautiful. You’ll see people skiing and some are just walking around the lake like we did. It’s an enjoyable despite the freezing cold. The lake is frozen but it’s not allowed to walk on it for safety reasons. The walk is almost 10km and it took us 3 and a half hours. It’s a beautiful day!
  • Great spot for hiking
