Genesis Lake is situated in a small hamlet called La Chaussee, Orne.
Lower Normandy. It is approximatley 15 minutes from Pre en Pail
(pronounced Pre on Pie) where you will find supermarkets,garages,bakers
and butchers, just about everything you’ll need during your stay in France.
The Lake is 12 acres and surrounded by all manner of trees and bushes overhanging the lake surface,with an average depth of 1.80 meters (around 5ft).
In early 2008 we added 2 tons of carp to 35 lbs , mirrors, commons and 7 Koi’s . The previous owner had only ever used the lake for a food source and to drive a mill wheel,the lake itself dates back to pre Napoleonic times and is at least 200 years old.
From Calais we are approximatley 4 1/2 hrs, Dieppe 3 1/2 hrs, Le Harve 2 hrs and Caen 2 hrs. Driving on French roads need not be a nightmare as the volume of traffic is far less then the U/K, just a little fore thought and obeying the rules makes it an enjoyable experience.
We have 2 wash cubicles each with toilets,basins and of course showers, centrally heated with plenty of hot water 24/7.
The dining room which seats up to 6 over looks the lake and is also open 24/7 within are fridges/freezers for food and bait plus numerous plug points for chargers etc.Kettle ,micro wave and television etc plus a double sink/drainer for your washing up, WIFI connection from the dining room.
Around the lake we have 5 double swims which accomodate 2 bivvies comfortably plus another 2 single swims. All swims command their own water space and with only 6 anglers at any one time are not in conflict with others.
