Lucrative Carp fishing business with chalet

This Fishery has been completely renovated within the last 5 years.  It now offers a luxury Chalet which is constructed of wood with a sectional steel roof on a plot of just under 5 acres.  It is a haven of peace and wildlife.  There are two small, beautiful lakes.  The lakes are currently rented out to anglers on an exclusive basis for £1,500 per week.  Additional income could be generated with bait, boat hire, a food package, etc. There is a useful detached shower block.  Every comfort has been catered for the anglers and their family.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a rural hamlet in the Manche area of the Normandy region of France.  Within easy reach is the Normandy town of St James (about 4 minutes drive) with its supermarket and out of town hypermarket with petrol station, street market (Mondays), post office, banks, bakers/patisseries, bistro, bars and restaurants. There is a trout fishing lake a short distance away on the road to St. James which children love, or more serious fishing in the valley of the Selune and Beuvron rivers. Although situated in Brittany, the property is just over the border from Normandy, and views of Mont St. Michel are nearby. The nearest beach is at Genêts which is a 20 minute drive.  The bay of Mont St. Michel is about 30 minutes drive and has many many attractions, as well as being an excellent base for history and culture. The Parliament of Brittany (Parlement de Bretagne) is approximately 51 km away. The ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is about 150 km, Le Havre and Dieppe are about a 3 hour drive and the Eurotunnel at Calais is about a 4 1/2 hour drive.
