Why choose France for your Fishing Holidays?

More space

More and more anglers are turning to France to take advantage of the uncrowded banks.. Who amongst us has not dreamed of having a venue all to themselves? On many of the lakes in this brochure you can go for days without seeing another angler, on some a whole week. You may not own the lake, but at times it will certainly feel like you do.

1st Class Fishing

A quick glance through this brochure will tell you all you need to know about the impressive stocking levels. For the specimen angler, our venues boast Carp in excess of 50lb’s with Catfish, in some lakes, weighing in at well over 100lbs. We also have a choice of venues geared toward the pleasure angler with lakes stocked with a full range of coarse fish. We are confident that you’ll find what you are looking for.

Stress free driving

Unlike much of England these days, motoring in France is a pleasure. Uncrowded roads pass through magnificent scenery. All our customers who have driven in France for the first time discover that French roads are uncongested and enjoyable to drive on. The motorways are mostly
toll roads providing very little congestion and very few road works, giving relaxing driving conditions. Even the RN (Route Nationale) and D (Departmental) roads are generally quiet.

Huge choice

By choosing a holiday to France you can match your passion for angling with your passion for good food, fine wine, great views and, if you choose, entertaining company. It is a chance to indulge yourself with the perfect angling break. Choose from lakes set in ancient woodlands near traditional French villages and a short drive from a bustling yet picturesque town. We can offer venues which suit the avid bivvy angler and the family angler. Gone are the days where lakes in France only provide a chemical toilet. We can offer parties/families luxury accommodation on the bank side to an exclusive carp & catfish lake.

Crossing the Channel has never been easier

Here at carp-france.com, we stay ahead by constantly improving our service to make it even easier for you.
