The Estate

Around the fifty acre Le Ruisseau estate there are wonderful areas to explore including walking trails, old shepherd’s crofts, ruined cottages, picnic glades, the forest flora and fauna and the little lake where you can go boating.

Through the length of the Estate runs a gentle stream, clear and cool, where you can dangle your feet in the water and watch the dragonflies dart among the orchids and rushes.

Wildlife abounds, including heron, deer, rabbits and hare and, on occasion, wild boar.
