Farmhouse with Fishing Lake and Extensive Grounds

Large Common Carp
1 of 33Large Common Carp
Farmhouse -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Sauvagnac, Charente, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
A tranquil, dog-friendly, holiday destination for the whole family. Our 400 year old farmhouse sleeps 8 and is dog friendly. It is set within 5.5 acres of landscaped grounds including a 1.5 acre well stocked fishing lake, orchard, sun terrace, games area and pool. All exclusively yours for the duration of your stay.

The Charente is the second sunniest region of France so we have obviously placed plenty of emphasis on the outdoors. This might be a relaxing walk around the lake or exploring and taking in the abundant wildlife. It could be laid back on a lounger, soaking up the sun, or floating on a ring in the pool while you read a book. You can exclusively fish the spring fed lake or if you fancy something a bit more sociable you can sit around the BBQ and play any number of outdoor games.

The lake is stocked with a head of carp to over...

Would recommend the property to all ages seeking peace and quiet in a remote part of central France. The fishing was far better than I had expected. If I can catch a 28lb carp, so can anybody. Lots of smaller fish for the impatient youngsters....More

Thank you for the lovely feedback Dave, it's always a pleasure welcoming guests who appreciate not just the house and lake but the wider grounds and the peaceful setting. Fantastic news regarding the catch and hopefully the first of many more large carp for you....More

Lovely, comfortable house situated in very remote and beautiful location. Perfect for walking and cycling as there is virtually no traffic. Excellent fishing in the lake which we both enjoyed. About 30 minute drive to nearest supermarket. Restaurant in Roussines has sadly closed down but...More

Hi Gwen, Thanks for booking your holiday with us and for being such lovely guests. I do lots of walking too and there's some excellent local footpaths but the cycling too is hard to beat as the roads are empty and very scenic. We hope...More

Just returned from a lovely couple of weeks at Lakeveiw Gite. The house is charming, a real rustic French cottage, delightfully quirky in places too. The real plus here though is the fabulous grounds. So much space and totally private and secure. Our dog loved...More

Hi Helen, Thanks for the lovely review and for spending your holiday at the gite and lake. I agree regarding Brantome, it's a little further afield but a pleasant drive and a really pretty town with a few fab restaurants to choose from. We hope...More

About the neighbourhood
Sauvagnac is a quiet Hamlet just a few minutes from the pretty village of Massignac and the lakes of the upper Charente. If you're unlucky you might hear the odd car passing but in reality the only disturbance is likely to be the rumble of a combine harvester during the summer months.
Getting around
You ideally need a car or at least a bicycle to get around. There are local train stations at La Rochefoucauld and Chabanais but transport between the towns and the gite are limited as the house is rural aside from some small local villages and towns.
