Inside the lakeside accommodation
The main room is an open plan lounge / dining area / kitchen. It has large French doors leading to the south facing terrace, with fantastic views of the lake. The sumptuous large leather settee provides a comfortable sitting area to view the Freeview TV and DVD player.
The two bedrooms each contain two single beds with high quality mattresses, a built-in wardrobe and a bedside cabinet. We provide the bedding but please bring your own towels. Next to the bedrooms is the bathroom with bath/shower, basin and toilet.
The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped to a very high standard with a top end stove/oven, fridge freezer, microwave, toaster and kettle. You will find a full range of crockery, cutlery, cookware and cooking utensils. The dining area is complemented by a solid ash dining table and chairs.
At the other end of the house, you will find a utility room with a bait freezer and a washing machine, and the very popular games room with its pool table. Anglers also have access to a dedicated equipment store which provides plenty of extra storage space for your gear.
Fishing near the lodge
The nearest swim to the lodge is the Home swim, located at the shallower end of the lake. Like all the other swims, you have several features to fish to: from the aerator to your left and the island corner in front of you to the lake margin to your right. It’s quite a complex zone with very rapid changes in bottom types and one of our regular anglers describes it as an area “as spotty as a dalmation puppy”!
You can set up your bivvy just off the gravel area to keep disturbance to a minimum. You also have the option of fishing through the undergrowth along the margin. The fish are easily spooked in this shallow area but as long as the water temperature is high enough, they love hanging out here. I’m sure the fish consider it a safe zone due to the lack of lines in the water. Fishing very accurately, locked up and mega slack is the only way to do it.
Local hotels and B&Bs
Some guests like to arrive fully refreshed from their travels to France to start their fishing holiday and choose to arrive the day before. Others like to stay on and explore the area and heritage. If you are planning to do so, you can find all the local places to stay on the Laval Tourisme website. There are plenty of different options to choose from: a bed and breakfast in a mill, a gite on the Mayenne river, a character hotel or a campsite in the middle of nature.
Food and dining
If you like cooking, the accommodation is fully equipped to prepare everything from full English breakfast to roast dinners. There is a well-stocked village shop just minutes from the lodge in Le Pertre. There is also a larger supermarket only 10mn away. We’ll have address and directions for these in the lodge. There are lots of restaurants in the towns of Laval and Chateau Gontier where you can treat yourself to the local specialities.
