Lake

In 1422, King Charles VII of France entrusted the lands of the future chateau of Stuart Lake to Sir John Stewart (a distant cousin of the Stuart royal line) 1st Lord of Concressault, Count of Evreux. At the time, it was a simple, glass construction at the side of a majestic lake. The chateau proper was not constructed before the end of the XV century. After Stuart D’Aubigny’s death in 1670, King Louis XIV gave the chateau to King Charles II of England. It was only in 1842 that the current owner’s family acquired the property.

Carp

Until now, only several, short fishing sessions have been carried out at the lake. some of these have been astonishing. Carp of more than 40lbs have been caught and even the smallest of those had the most marvellous scales. The lake was last emptied and refilled over 60 years ago…the record catch for this lake has yet to be realised. Even a 70lb carp would be possible in this type of lake. In order to preserve the place, a maximum of 5 anglers is to be fixed.48
