New for 2019:
Many visitors have discribed the lake at Numero Cinq as magical, we say it is relaxing. Guests are welcome to fish but if that is not your thing then we provide a BBQ and seating.
We don't have the big specimen fish but we have plenty of mixed fish to keep a fishermans lines tight on the bank. We do have rods available for your use.
However big fish are available from some of the local lakes.
Dave has fished for carp for over 30 years and would be happy to advise and help you improve your PB fishing one of the local lakes often on a day ticket. If you have never fished before Dave can help you.
We do sell a range of great vale end tackle for fishing. The range can be posted to other French locations via our Facebook page Numéro Cinq Pêche
An above ground pool
Many of our guests select to spend several days simply enjoying the grounds. We have about 8 acres including a grassed garden area next to the house suitable for alfresco dining or relaxing in the sun. If you prefer a little stroll head towards our lake and woodland area. If you fancy a little shade some of our oak trees are believed to be about 800 years old.
We garden with nature in mind and as a result the wild flowers, birds and butterflies enhance our world. We can show you the area we have designated as a butterfly sanctuary but we recommend you bring your camera. We do however also expect our garden to provide a lot of our food. Vegetables fresh from the garden are a delight. We therefore whenever possible provide a selection vegetable in the guest garden for guests to pick and enjoy.
If you hike nearby you will find nature in abundance. As the year develops what you can expect to find will change the wild spring flowers always delight as do the autumn fungi.
Another gem due to our location is the night sky. On a clear night the milky way is breathtaking.
Extra outdoor seating
Our country gite is situated in a small hamlet, Chez Nothon, offering you peace and quiet. Spend an afternoon curled up with a good book in our cosy living room; enjoy a BBQ or picnic with a glass of wine (or two) in our private grounds or choose one of the many outdoor activities or restaurants the area has to offer.
Just a short drive away we have a selection of great boulangeries great for a special French breakfast.
Locally you can also find interesting villages and towns, an equestrian centre and leasure activities.
