The Retreat Lake

Great fishing with Peace & Relaxation

Welcome to The Retreat


GThe Retreat Lake is in a secluded position and located only 6 kms from the beautiful river town of Chateau-Gontier in Mayenne. The town offers excellent facilities including a variety of supermarkets and shops, restaurants, bars, swimming pool(indoor and outdoor), boat trips along the river and a weekly market. The Retreat Lake can be reached by car from the ports of Boulogne in 4.5hrs, Calais in 5hrs, Caen(Ouistreham) in 3hrs and St-Malo in 1.5hrs. The Retreat Lake is located about 30 mins south of Laval, the capital of Mayenne and the A81 motorway.


Being family run, we understand that not everyone wants to fish. Our venue has been specifically planned to ensure that all members of the family have plenty to do and naturally, being in rural France, there is no shortage of exciting and beautiful places to visit.


Enjoy your visit to our site and please feel free to browse around to find what The Retreat has to offer you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries about the lake, accommodation or local amenities.
