Lake Montbel is located in the department of Ariege, on the border with the Aude. This huge lake is artificial. It was created in 1985 for the irrigation of agricultural land in the surrounding areas. Lake Montbel is separated into two parts. The largest pool is level variable. It measures 500 hectares while the smallest is stable and less than a hundred hectares.

Although the primary purpose of this lake is the irrigation of surrounding cultivated land, many leisure activities were developed by the municipalities. A water sports center, a supervised beach and turquoise waters give the illusion of being on the coastline. Sailing and windsurfing are practiced on the lake. A nature trail was built around the lake, ideal for a family hike; the complete tour is 16 km long.

Montbel Lake is also renowned for the wildlife that lives there. It is a popular fishing area, since many species of carp and carnivorous species can be fished. It is also a natural area where migratory birds come to spend some time during the year. To meet them, the Association of Naturalists in Ariège placed notice boards on birds and their way of life around the lake.

To access the Montbel lake from Mirepoix, follow the direction of Léran on the D625 then on the D28, on the road to Léran. Cross the village and take Montjean avenue that leads to the shores of the lake (2.5 km).
