Les Angles is a popular mountain resort catering for both winter sports and summer holidays. It is situated high in the eastern Pyrenees near the Spanish and Andorran frontiers on the Capcir plateau. It enjoys one of the sunniest climates in France and boasts a long list of year round activities, restaurants, a swimming pool, cinema, bars and nightclubs to ensure an enjoyable stay.

In the summer the area is a popular destination for walking, cycling and Horse riding providing a wide variety of local excursions to choose from. For example Mont Llaret and the Roc d’Aude at 2400m elevation are a 45 minute walk from the top of the Les Angles cable car and offer exceptional panoramic views of the Pyrenean range, the Canigou and the Capcir plateau. There are numerous mountain lakes to explore within good walking distance of Les Angles and the Galbe valley is an area of exceptional wildlife and flora.

Lake Matemale is just outside Les Angles and caters for all kinds of water sports from canoes to Catamarans. You could think you were sat on the Med when on the beach next to the supervised bathing area. This sheltered spot may be at 1600m elevation but the water has been known to reach a staggering 23°. A restored country cottage with a large terrace offers refreshments and in the evening often provides the venue for Jazz.

The skiing area (1600 -2400m) is a vast unspoilt mountain offering 32 downhill pistes catering for all levels of ability and an impressive Snowpark. Set over 4 zones with Tables, Big-Air, Handrails, Boxes, Hips, a halfpipe and two quarter pipes this is serious fun. The scenery here is magnificent and it's a great area for snowshoeing and to enjoy the 54km of cross country tracks. Night skiing is available for those who can’t get enough during the day and sleigh rides are popular with children and adults alike. Snow is now guaranteed every winter.

For those wanting a lively après-ski you will not be disappointed. There are numerous restaurants offering a good choice of French and international cuisine and the bars and nightclub are buzzing till the wee hours.
