'A little piece of paradise' ..... ' If you love wildlife, this is the place for you - it's teeming! Surrounded by glorious countryside, we really appreciated the peace and tranquillity. ' ..... these are just a couple of comments from our customers. We have 2 private fishing lakes, set within 2.5 hectares of beautiful (and protected) countryside. You won't be disappointed when you book your holiday at La Germondière. Well equipped gîtes which are pet friendly, set in calm peaceful surroundings where you can fish in either of our two lakes. Just 2 miles from a town with a supermarket, bakers, bars & restaurants....'A little piece of paradise' ..... ' If you love wildlife, this is the place for you - it's teeming!
