Lac de Montbel

Posted by adminROCH

Lac de Montbel is a reservoir 5 minutes from Chalabre, which is a popular location for watersports and swimming. It is located at Sainte-Colombe-sur-l’Hers on the border between the Ariège and Aude départements of southwestern France.

Located between the beautiful town of Mirepoix and Limoux, 30 minutes south of Carcassonne, you will find this amazing lake. A centre for windsurfing, Lac de Montbel also has a kiosk where you can hire pedalos and there is also a nice little beach-side shack where you can get a beer or a cup of coffee. The nearest village to Montbel is Chalabre, and if you are heading out this way, make sure you go on a Monday and take in the excellent market at Mirepoix.
