In a particularly pleasant natural setting, the lakes of Villelongue-dels-Monts and Palau-del-Vidre promise moments of pure relaxation for walkers. The latter is also well known to fishermen and model makers who take advantage of this green setting to indulge in their favorite pastime.

A trip to the water's edge...

Palau del Vidre

A real paradise for fisherman, the Sant Marti lake also offers a relaxation and picnic area on the peninsula where you can fully enjoy the beauty of the place.

All kinds of fishing can be done depending on the season! The activity is regulated by a local association (office at the entrance to the lake). It informs you about the conditions and prices in force and issues permits for the day.

Located in a quiet setting, a little away from the main roads, the lake of Villelongue-dels-Monts is very popular for its wild environment. An hour to go around and observe fauna and flora in this protected site.

We meet fishing lovers there, but also the herd of sheep and sheep of one of the last shepherds of the plain!

Fishing in the river

Tech Country Route – Ortaffa

The banks of the Tech, coastal river of Roussillon, at the ford of Ortaffa have recently been restored and are easily accessible. The course has signage that will give you key information for fishing (species of fish present, signs, map, etc.).
There are no specific regulations, just take your fishing license.
