Carp Fishing Lake

This French carp lake is ideal for the pleasure angler seeking time out to enjoy their own exclusive fishing holiday. Relax and enjoy some good sport in a beautiful location. Soak up the wildlife as you feel yourself unwind. Around the lakeside, you may well spot the resident buzzards and hawks patrolling the lake on a misty morning.

The carp lake is also the ideal place to teach a child the joys of fishing.

Nature’s Retreat has everything you need for a carp fishing holiday in France with a family. We offer quality baits and tackle.

Due to regular stocking, it is believed that there are approximately 70 good sized carp ranging from the high teens to over the 50lb mark.

This year the largest out, so far, has been a shade over 47lb. That having been said that was shortly after spawning so we are anticipating more.

At Nature’s Retreat, we are fanatical about the type and quality of the feed and bait being used on our water. We only feed with high-quality Scretting feed imported from the UK and only allow the use of fresh or frozen baits.

Come visit us and try your skills.
