Local Interest

When you are on holiday at the Retreat Lake, in it’s secluded position, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.  However, there is still plenty to do in the surrounding area should you wish to spend a day away from the site shopping or taking in the French way of life.

The lake is located only 6 km’s from the beautiful river town of Chateau-Gontier in Mayenne. The town offers excellent facilities including a variety of supermarkets and shops,  restaurants, bars, a swimming pool, an animal park, boat trips along the river and a weekly market.

There are many pretty villages scattered around Le Saule and Angers is less than an hour away and is a lovely place to have a day out.
