About this space

Get away from it all in the beautiful French countryside. 5 acres of private land in the heart of the famous wine regions of Sancerre & Pouilly Fume.

Surrounded by wildlife & nature, watch the red squirrels at play and kingfisher’s swoop across the lake. In the evening – spend nights star gazing in the unlit sky. A perfect getaway & retreat to unplug & spend time reconnecting this is the place for:

  • Family holidays
  • Friends to spend time away together
  • Touring cyclists
  • Carp anglers
  • Work travellers

The space

The property is part of our home and we live on-site. It is on the first floor and is self-contained. The area is very rural and there are no bars or clubs within walking distance. There is no bus service. So your own transport is necessary. The nearest local town is approximately a 10-minute drive away where there are full facilities such as supermarkets, banks, post office, bars and restaurants.

If you are looking for a totally “unplugged” experience then this is the property for you.

If you would like to enquire about our fishing options, please look for our Lac de Lumiere website for further details

Guest access

You are living within a 5-acre piece of private land with a carp lake at its centre.

The property is rented on the first floor as a whole unit for up to 6 people – 2 double beds and 2 singles.

The garden areas are yours to relax and enjoy with views over the lake. During the times when there are no anglers on the lake, we would encourage you to take a stroll down to the water’s edge.

Unfortunately, we do not allow swimming in the lake.

Other things to note

Please be aware that it is countryside living and therefore we do share our space with lots of different wildlife. Such as – but not exclusively, bats, little lizardy things, frogs, spiders and various bugs (which do end up in the house sometimes), bees, red squirrels, moles, woodpeckers, and other bird species.
