FISHING LAKES
Moulin de Garreau is a beautiful property in wonderful grounds with lakes and woodland. There are in fact 2 lakes at the property, one of which is just beside the mill and has a surface of about 4,000 square metres, the other lake is about 100 meters further on and this has a surface of about 15,000 square meters. The lake beside the mill is totally private and exclusive to guests at the property, the lake further on is also private for guests. The lakes have Carp, Pike, Perch, Tench, Eels, Roach etc. Great fishing and it's free! There are very large fish in both lakes (not sure of weights but certainly a minimum of 4 kgs going up to approx 22kg) You can see the fish jumping above the water in the morning and just under the water in the sunny afternoons.
