Birch Lake is regarded by many as the most beautiful lake on the complex, and the first glimpse of it from the dam wall has been described by many visitors as 'simply stunning.' Redmire-sized, Birch is a long lake, with the non-fishing bank composed of an unbroken series of over-hanging Birch trees, hence its name. A very atmospheric lake, and one of the most tranquil and private lakes in France, it is set in fully-fenced private woodland which we also own. The wildlife on Birch is rich and varied, and it is home to resident kingfishers, birds of prey, red squirrels, mallards and many species of song birds.
Like Poplars, Birch contains carp to around 45lb with many 20lb and 30lb fish, including many superb big commons. The carp tend to be caught from the far margin against the trees. Best cat is 140lbs plus, with 60lb plus fish common.
The chalet on Birch provides very comfortable accommodation for the small family and is only a couple of yards from the water's edge.
The chalet has mains electricity and hot and cold running water and comprises one bedroom with a double bed, a fully equipped kitchen with gas cooker and oven, microwave, fridge, fridge/freezer and storage cupboards. The living/dining area provides a double bed-settee, tables and chairs, English Freeview TV with DVD, CD player etc. The bathroom has a shower, English toilet and wash basin. There is a barbecue area right outside the mobile home complete with garden furniture, overlooking the shallows.
