Les Angles: Ski Resort & stunning, active Summer retreat

Les Angles is a pretty village, with a historic centre which has a permanent population of 700 people, which means there are shops and restaurants open all year.

Les Angles is situated on a plateau with the mountains all around, so the terrain for cycling or walking around the village and the lac de Matemale is relatively flat.

We recommend a car to get here, but once here you can easily reach the ski lifts, village, and Matemale Lake on foot or using the free bus service in season summer and winter. The nearest stop is 200m from the house.
