Bletiere is a beautiful little venue in the heart of the French countryside where you can have a well stocked carp lake all to yourself and stay in a high quality gite on the banks of the lake.
A maximum of 4 anglers can fish the lake but we prefer up to 3 as that gives you options to move around a little. The gite can sleep up to 6 (a double bedroom, twin bedroom and sofa-bed downstairs).
Bletiere gets its name from the French word for wheat, ble, because it was once part of a large cereal farm. The 2½ acre lake sits in 16 acres of woods and fields giving you real seclusion.
