Imagine a succession of lakes linked by a river and fed from crystal clear springs

1200 ha of forest form the catch basin at the foot of the Côtes de Meuse.  There are no agricultural, household or industrial waste to befoul the purity of the waters.

With an area of 13 ha completely enclosed by a high wall the Domaine de Sommedieu offers a private beat comprised of 4.5 km of river, stream and lake banks limited to a maximum of 15 fishermen

The waters are crystal clear even during periods of heavy rain due to their being fed by natural underground springs

4 lakes joined by streams and a river of 1ère catégorie under French law

The average water temperature is 10°C

Fishable year round!  Due to the natural springs the water stays cool through the heat of summer and ice free throughout the worst winters.
