 John and Tom arrived at Lac du Val for a short 4 days holiday, this being their 1st visit to our venue.

Lac du Val, under NEW OWNERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT since October 2017 by Dave and Evamarie, is situated in the beautiful region of Normandy. Surrounded by fields and countryside, it offers extremely tranquil settings for that fishing holiday experience of a lifetime. We make every effort to maintain this to its highest level.

Our mature 4 acre lake, spring fed at either end, maintaining a constant fresh water supply, was constructed in the late 90’s. With many changes being made over the last 8 months, it offers a fishing holiday of a lifetime.

Traveling to Lac du Val couldn’t be any easier. Caen and St Malo offer ferry ports within 62 miles, Cherbourg 67, Le Harve 105, Dieppe 123 and for those who want a shorter ferry crossing, Calais at 200 miles.

Carpy features are in abundance with 2 islands situated at one end of the lake, along with many other over hanging trees etc around the rest of the lakes edge. There are 7 swims in total to chose from, 4 of which offer a perfect social event and 2 new swims which allow you to fish areas never before accessible. Lake depths vary from 3ft at the island end to 6ft in the damm wall end.

On the lakeside edge, there is a chalet for renting, offering some home creature comfort’s, to include 2 comfy single beds, TV, cooker, fridge, microwave, hot and cold running water etc. It’s ideal for partners to share in the holiday experience and to enjoy the stunning picturesque “Lac du Val”. A short walk and adjacent to the farmhouse is the washroom with shower facilities etc. Also available is a fridge/ freezer for your use.

Fish stock is currently around 100, made up of extremely hard fighting mirrors and commons going to 40lb plus. There are a handful of cat fish going to 30lb plus, helping with lake maintenance. Further stocking will be addressed in Jan / Feb 2019 for some more icon target fish. As of writing this feature (June 2018), we have seen some fantastic catch reports during the last 6 months, due to some of the changes we have made to the lake. Read all the latest news etc. on our Facebook page ( https://m.facebook.com/lacduval/ ).

Option extras offered at “Lac du Val” is a food package, rated second to none !!!!! It includes a full English breakfast, served at 10 am in our breakfast chalet and an evening meal severed in the lakeside dining room.
