Magnificent Natural French Fishing Location
stunning surroundings and great spaces to bivvy, right up close to the lake.
Chalet Lake is near Metz, 350 miles from Calais and Lake Meillant is about 130 south of Paris near St Amand Montond.
Mature Stock of Carp
The lakes are stocked with pure bred English carp from our own stock, grown under strict bio secure controls. The largest carp are around 60lb+ with smaller ones of 20-30lbs coming through to provide some sporting interest.
We like our clients to have the chance to catch serious fish at our lakes. Just take a look at the pictures in the gallery to see some of the carp that might give you a run for your money.
Peace and Quiet
As for peace and quiet, we rent the lakes out on a weekly basis mainly to single groups of up to 6 rods who then have the lake to themselves on an exclusive basis. With 20 acres of water, there is plenty of space for everyone.
Both lakes have great amenities close by which means that supplies can be picked up daily, if required.
So, do you fancy drive and survive carp fishing in France?
If driving to a stunning location, putting up your bivvy and getting your fishing gear out sounds like your sort of carp fishing holiday, where the fishing takes precedence over everything else, check the availability of both lakes and make yourself a booking!
