FRENCH COUNTRY FARMHOUSE & CARP FISHING LAKE WITH SWIMMING POOL & MASSAGE

Glandon Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Refurbished 3 double bedroom period farmhouse and barns, sleeps 8

The luxury accommodation consists of three large double bedrooms. The shabby chic bedroom, light and airy, on the ground floor adjacent to the bathroom, with a King size bed and shabby chic Louis XV style furniture.

The Baroque bedroom, is decorated in decadent French baroque style with a black king size bed, black shabby chic furniture, damask feature wallpaper and gilt gold accents with dual aspect windows.

The Fourchaud bedroom is named after the family that lived in this French country farmhouse for four generations. This traditional luxury bedroom is also double aspect and has the handmade solid wood furniture carved by the Fourchaud family of carpenters. There is a brand new bathroom with a rain shower in between these two bedrooms on the first floor. The ground floor bathroom has a roll top bath, walk in shower and his/hers sinks. There is also a separate WC on the ground floor. The kitchen is traditional French country style and stocked full of crockery and cooking equipment. The neutral yet cozy lounge has two large sofas and French doors leading to the garden overlooking the fishing lake. Outside -swimming pool, terrace.

Sleeping Arrangements: The bedrooms consist of a double bed in the Fourchaud Bedroom and King size beds in the Shabby Chic and Baroque Bedroom. There are also two deluxe single put up beds which can be placed in the room of your choice or in the private landing area at the top of the house. A cot is also available.

This is your opportunity to enjoy an exclusive French carp lake of 2 acres in size. In 2013 the lake was landscaped with a feature island added in the middle. We have a fantastic stock of fish, now around 60 french carp; common and mirror 15lb to 41.8lb. There is also good head of 30 tench at 4lb to 7lb, roach, and perch of various weights. Fishing is permitted anytime of the day or night.

We are very pleased to announce the arrival of our new stock for 2014, we now have 10 more carp between 25-30lb.

We have been waiting for the right fish to come along since last September and now we have them.

The 10 carp consist of 5 beautiful long commons, 4 mixed colour mirror and a stunning plated mirror. These carp have been stocked at their lowest winter weight so were hoping for some of the fish to reach the mid thirty mark this coming season.

We are looking forward to seeing the results of the feeding program of 2013, our first stock of fish should be starting to put the weight on this year, so we expect our guests to be catching alot more 20lb+ and some more 30lb+, a very exciting year ahead!!

Were also waiting on the delivery of 2 more carp over the 30lb mark, not sure what type yet but commons have been requested, we will post photos and weights as soon as they arrive.

The lake is the ideal place to teach a child the joys of fishing.... anyone with a passion for angling who started as a child will never forget the thrill of catching their first carp and the way it makes you feel. Natures Retreat has everything you need for carp fishing in France with family. We offer quality baits, please enquire for further information. We offer full tackle packages, for more information contact us

Garden furniture: There are 6 sun loungers available for use at the property and two wooden garden tables with eight wooden garden chairs and a sun parasol.

We offer a choice of Swedish Massage, Swedish Massage with Aromatherapy oil and Indian Head Massage on site for ladies only. The treatment is given in the room of your choice on a luxury grade massage table or shiatsu chair.

Natures Retreat is based on the belief that everyone deserves a chance to get away from their daily routine and have the opportunity to experience a special holiday, soaking up the French country way of life whilst carp fishing in France.

This family friendly French carp lake offers the keen angler a chance to catch french carp on a fishing holiday whilst having his loved ones around him. We offer fishing holidays in France with luxury accommodation. This is a special place that remains a wildlife haven.

We wish for everyone who stays at this beautiful french country farmhouse to have a relaxing happy time with friends and family. At the least, to take away with them happy memories to treasure, at most perhaps, to carry on their way with a new and refreshed outlook on life......

Jane Duffell & Clint Edwards purchased this farmhouse in 2010

We fell in love with this property at first sight.......previously owned by the Fourchaud family for four generations Nature's Retreat is everything one could wish for and more! We were looking for the right property with a lake for several years before fortune came our way and we discovered this haven and snapped it up before it was advertised on the open market. With a lot of love and guidance from the lovely Fourchaud family who continue to to be good friends, we have restored and rejuvenated this beautiful estate with care and attention on to every detail. We continually strive to improve our guests experience and thank all of those who have shared their ideas over the years to help to make Nature's Retreat the perfect holiday experience. We look forward to welcoming you.......

Beginners Luck and landed ‘scarface’

  • Submitted: Dec 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Beginners Luck and landed ‘scarface’ at almost 31 pounds Sunday morning – following Clint’s great advice and lake knowledge – instant celebrity status on facebook! What can we say – Clint and Jane fabulous hosts, house lovely with all conveniences – we would want to stay here even if we did not fish. Weather brilliant – 27 degrees at the end of September unexpected to say the least. Fish rather uncooperative – no more for the rest of the week – probably proves they are better at this than I am. Had a great time and thanks again to our hosts.

We wanted for nothing

Thanks so much for your kind hospitality and advice during our weeks stay in your lovely house. We wanted for nothing. The facilities are great and so comfortable it was a shame that the weather did not match it all. The fishing was a little slow but perseverance paid off with 2 twenty pounders towards the end of the week. Thanks for being great hosts and see you again i9n the future. Good luck with all your projects
