From fishing lakes, both natural and man-made, to rivers, fishing is literally on the hotel’s doorstep.


The Loir river

The river, which runs alongside the hotel, is famous for its fishing. Carp, perch, chub, roach, bream, zander, tench and pike are just a few of the species that can be caught.

The regions’ lakes

Carp, many weighing over 40lbs, have been caught here, together with trout, bream, eel, pike, catfish and sturgeon.
