Blog Post Image

2019 is our first full year of opening. to get the place off to a flying start for £1550 we have decided to offer:

The fully renovated 2 bedroom 2 ensuite house

The 3 acre house lake with carp to 40 Ibs 

2 acre runs water with mixed silver and carp to mid 20's

3 acre specimen cat fish lake cat to nearly 200Ibs

The cat lake has a basic cabin to shelter in if the weather is bad along with a bbq oven and gas oven. 

The main lake also has a fisher mans hut half way along the house bank which is ideal for sheltering in bad weather, there is 240v power here, along with mains water and a fridge and freezer too! 

No one else comes close on quality or lake on offer for this price. this really is a lovely private complex to yourself for the duration.

Maison Verre - Oswell party 11/08/18

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 Had a great week at a lovely venue.

Thank you very much.

Need to give ourselves a few weeks to get sorted but the general consensus is that we would like to return next year.

Please find a few photos attached, I will send you over a few more and a catch report later in the week.

Biggest fish were a 31lb sturgeon, and a 31lb carp.

We named the 20lb sturgeon Steve as he kept hammering one of our party (steve) and I think he even came out 3 times in one day.

House is amazing, location brilliant and it was perfect for the boys.

Thanks again.

Maison Verre - Calladine 8/9/18

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

Phil and his wife have fished at a number of venues in France in the last 10 years. They went as a couple with Phil only fishing in the days along with sight seeing trips to Vitre which they reported as being stunning., They even stayed on for a meal, something they never normally do on visit to a town.

Phil was concerned about his low sports car making it to the site, but our all new stone drive way did the trick!

The couple wanted a relaxing 'quality stay' and from the review we ticked all the boxes. having only opened half way through 2018 we want people to appreciate the quality on offer and the following reivew should ensure this:

"Sad to say just back from EMV.Could have stayed longer but someone else is going to enjoy the stunning property and beautiful lake setting.

Everything you could wish for is on the site. Managed to land 19 carp to 33 lb and 2 sturgeon to 32.Didn't fish nights and visited local sites so the fishing is relatively straightforward.

Used bait boat to get under overhanging bushes but clipped up and fished to margins when possible.Would recommend using 20 mm boilies to attract the larger fish and house pellets to feed.

The accommodation is first class with open plan layout and fabulous views over the pretty lake.

Thanks to all concerned.

Phil and Jan"

Maison Verre - first review

thanks for a brilliant weeks fishing at your lake. After 10 years we were a little apprehensive of what the lake would now be like but after 5mins of arriving any apprehensions soon vanished.

The overhaul of the house is unrecognisable from what it used to be and the addition of the veranda/patio area is superb! As for the lake, it was brilliant. It’s now much more open and accessible and made it feel much more sociable from our perspective, which was good as above all else it was our holiday. The ease of which you could set up your main swims then take a rod to other parts of the lake if you fancied a few hours change was great and no matter where you cast, margins or open water, single hook bait or pva also, we were almost guaranteed a bite each time.

We almost hit the 50 mark for the week (that’s fish photoed) but happy to settle for 49, with the last one coming out the morning of our last day, being also the largest carp of the week. This was achieved not fishing hard at all and for the most part with just one rod out each and no overnight fishing.

I think I can speak for the others in saying it was probably our best weeks fishing in France to date. Very relaxing and enjoyable and I shouldn’t be surprised to see us booking up for next year sometime soon.

Maison Verre - EMV renovation update

The renovation of the house is really ramping up now.  A few weeks ago saw the house plastered out completely and this week the new faux oak Porcelain tiles are being laid along with the new septic tank.

Next week will see the new swims created in front of the house along with the rest of the lake.

Another team of 3 workers arrive next week to spend 5 weeks completing work on the fishermans hut along with the garage.

We will then start the tree thinning on the new top lake getting ready for swim building and other works. 

post our opening week of June the 9th there are some great weeks to still be had.

Maison Verre - new cat fish lake stocked

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 EMV February update. Cat lake is stocked!

We have taken delivery of our new cat fish now. 2 huge new cats re-homed in the MV cat lake that comes with EMV for 2017.

So we now have 9 cat fish from around 80 to in excess of 200lbs!

All in a compact 2 acre ish lake. All this is literally only 30m from the corner of the EMV house lake.


The EMV house lake has no cat fish stocked now only just under 100 carp. 3 Strugeon and 2 grass carp. We took this step to better bring on the thinned out original stock (chosen for their ability to grow) and the 53 new fish stocked over the last 2 Winters. The cat fish were getting too big and were eating anyhting under 25lbs!!

So 2018 should see some good fish weights now in EMV due to our intensive Winter feed campaign and also the biomass is far better with the Cats gone.
