Ameneties / facilities:

The location of Etang Hirondelle is simply stunning, surrounded by stunning countryside the lakeside villa sleeps 4 and has been renovated to retain its rustic charm and character but with all the mod cons. The villa was once a small barn and was renovated by the previous owners. The stone walls are at least 3ft thick! The villa is set on one level and open plan. In the lounge there is a stone fireplace with woodburner. The lounge has also been tastefully furnished for your comfort adding to the rustic charm There is also satellite TV and free WIFI. Leading through the stone doorway from the terrace which overlooks the lake, the open plan kitchen and dining room has everything you would need on your holiday. The kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher. The dining room has an oak table with chairs for indoor dining and also leads into the lounge. The villa has 3 bedrooms, firstly the double bedroom which has a traditional French double bed, dressing table and walldrobe. There is also a small hand basin. Located next door to the double Bedroom is the shower room with sink and next to that the Utility room with WC. The hallway gives access to the backdoor of the property. The second bedroom is a small single with a patio door opening out to the front of the property and the third bedroom has twin beds and a space to hang your clothes. All the bedrooms have been tastefully decorated giving a cosy feel and a restful night’s sleep. You may also like to take advantage of our Meals on Reels selection of homecooked meals including the traditional Sunday Roast and the Beef Bourguignon served with Dumplings or one of the food packages available giving you more time around the lake and relaxing. The lake is just a couple of steps from the villa. There is a set of table and chairs with umbrella to keep the sun off during the day and also a barbeque for alfresco dining. There are also a couple of comfortable seats around the lake so you can take advantage of the magnificent views and kick back and relax!! Beside the villa is the pool with sunloungers. The woodland walks are a must!! Enjoy the sights and sounds that the forest has to offer, or perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the wild deer drinking from the lake early in the morning. In the donkey paddock Martan and Princess loved to be fussed over with a carrot or two. Then there is Bertie and his Gels who add a certain "je ne sais quoi".

We have a few bans on baits these are: NO Hemp, Seeds, Nuts (including Tiger Nuts) or Beans. We have sometimes had cause for concern with regards to a lack of understanding by the minority of anglers who fail to understand the importance of correctly prepared baits.

No Sacking of Fish. Please take your photographs and return the fish to the water as quickly as possible to minimize the stress on the fish. NO SPINNING.
