Moliets Lakes



The lake of Moliets and La Prade

Lac de Moliets

The Moliets and la Prade lakes are two protected nature reserves to discover on foot or bicycle. A walk of about 3kms under the oak, cork oaks and alder trees. There is also a fitness trail.

Things to see: a duck hunters camouflaged "tonne" at the water's edge and the fountain of Notre Dame, in the middle of a clearing in the forest. The sulphurous water from these springs gives off a nauseating smell, which is why it's called "Pourrut" in Gascon (from pourri in french), believed to cure skin diseases.

A fishing permit is required, available at the Moliets Tourist office. Fish to catch : perch, roach, pike, black bass, carps, eels.
