La Bourgonniere.........A beautifully restored luxury farmhouse which comfortably sleeps 8 people and offers lakeside accommodation where you can fish for carp to well over 40lbs.

La Bourgonniere is situated in the traditional village of Hambers which is around 20 minutes from the town of Mayenne, within 2 hours drive from Le Harve, Caen, St Malo and just over 4 hours from Calais.
The lake is just over 2.5 Acres in size and has 2 purpose built double swims. A willow tree sits proudly on top of a central island and the lake depth ranges from 3ft to10ft. The average Carp weight is approx 27lb and no carp have been stocked below 20lbs.

The owners Adrian & Beatrice have travelled to France on family Carp Holidays destinations for years and now feel that they have used their experience to create the perfect family Carp Fishing Venue in France.
The house is very comfortable and offers 4 Bedrooms, 3 Bedrooms have enuite showers, Kitchen is fully fitted with a Range Cooker, Fridge, Freezer, Washing Machine and Dishwasher. The Lounge has a large flat screen TV, Satalite, DVD player, Xbox with selection of DVD's and Games. The solid Oak Dinning Table in the Lounge comfortable seats 8 people. The propety also benefits from free Wi-Fi.


Outside a Jacuzzi which seats 6 people sits on 120m2 patio and over looks the lake. The nearest swim can be fished from the house. So you can enjoy a BBQ, Glass of French Wine or just relax in the Jacuzzi its up to you, all this while you can stay fishing!

If you fancy a day away from the fishing or you are a non angler there is plenty to see and do. The Mayenne region is famous for it's equestrian pursuits and the town of Hambers is no exception. There are countless horse trails allowing you to enjoy the unspoiled natural beauty of the area. One trail in particular takes you past the Chapelle de Montaigu, a local landmark which has the most breathtaking views of the surrounding area. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Andaine forrest in Normandy and the Breton hills. The chapel can be seen from the property.


Another site of interest is the village of Jublains which is home to the archaeological remains of a very important Roman fortress. This site is just a 10 minute drive from the property and is believed to be the most complete Roman fortress in Europe. There is also the Archaeological Museum attached to the site which houses fascinating artifacts such as busts, carvings, ornaments and mosaics which were all unearthed in Jublains. Visitors come from all over the globe to visit this unique place.
If you visit the town of Mayenne then I would recommend going to see the early medieval castle. At over 1000 years old it is one of the best preserved early medieval buildings in Europe. There is a museum located at the site which showcases Mayenne's medieval treasures. The museum also organises lots of activities for children of all ages, with fun workshops and classes throughout the summer, leaving the adults to enjoy the cafes & shops of Mayenne.


For even more great things to see during your stay you could always visit the Tourism Office in Mayenne where they are always more than happy to help or click on htpp://www.mayenne-tourisme.com/en.
