On the recommendation of the Tourist Office, we went to visit the lakes in the mountains near Pas de la Casa on our way back to France. Although it was a very nice day in August , the end of the road at Grau Roig was nearly deserted. We asked the young lady by the rugged looking 4x4 bus about transport to the lakes and discovered that for 5 euros each she provides return transport to the restaurant by the lake and that the fee is refunded at the restaurant when dining there.
It sounded a good deal. We were the only passengers on the bus and enjoyed the 10 minute ride up the mountain. We had an excellent lunch (a very tasty and well presented salmon and avocado salad in my case) on the terrace overlooking superb scenery followed by a very enjoyable walk to a second nearby lake.
The transport and lunch was good value for money and combined with the scenery made an ideal afternoon out before the trek back to France.
