This beautiful lake is approx 3 acres and up to 11ft deep in places and is set in 15 acres.

About our local area

We are located in the Pays de la Loire region of France in the department of Mayenne. Chateau Gontier is just over 3 miles away and on the river Mayenne and is an ancient town with many historic buildings, churches and walks along the river. The river can be fished subject to obtaining a licence. Boats, cycles and canoes can be hired on the river. The town has a selection of supermarkets and several little boutiques sited around the picturesque town square which has a market every Thursday morning. The town also has a rescue zoo/sanctuary – the only one in France to rescue wild animals – and is open to the public all year. .

Well behaved dogs are welcome but please be aware that we have small dogs of our own along with cats, chickens and horses so we would ask that they are kept under control at all times.

Alan and Jill live on site in a separate house so will be on hand to help if needed but hope that you just enjoy your stay with us.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
