Tall Trees

We are nestled in the Pays de la Loire countryside, and Les Etangs De L’Écurie is a complex of lakes which opened for business in April 2014. 3 of our lakes are available – The Orchard, Oaks and Tall Trees.

Carp fishing in France can be a great way to better your PB. It can be a fishing holiday where you can enjoy stunning scenery, a little bit of French culture along the way, and peace and quiet in what we regard as a most beautiful part of France, carp fishing in France at its best. We (Jamie & Natalie) will do our utmost to make that a reality.

L’Écurie was owned by the same family for 67 years, until 2013 when the property was sold to us. L’Écurie itself has four lakes which date back to the Napoleonic era, and they were last used as a fishery back in the early eighties. There are no Poisson Chat or Crayfish in the lakes, and we have closed status for all our lakes, so you can fish all day and all night if you wish.

All of the lakes are surrounded by beautiful farmland. On site we have Apple, Pear, Peach, Plum and Cherry trees, as well as Kiwis – for us it really is a little piece of heaven all here to enhance your carp fishing in France holiday.

Exclusive use for just £800 (Plus optional £280 for mobile home) per week for up to 3 anglers.

Tall Trees is a three acre water, and very similar in make up to the other lakes, with depths ranging from 3ft-10ft with gravel, stone, and a small silt bed running through the middle. The lake has 6 large swims to fish from, giving three anglers plenty of option and space around the lake.

We have carried out a stocking programe on this lake, which consisted of 32 Carp in the 20-25lb bracket, 15 Carp in the 25lb-30lb bracket, 16 Carp in the 30lb-40lb bracket and 4 x 40lb+ Carp, with the largest at 45lb 7oz. This will add to the orginal stock to make a first rate fishery.

 

For our Carp Fishing in France Drive and Survive guests, there are shower and toilet facilities available, and also a fisherman’s cabin which contains a fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and charging points.

If you’re not the type to tough it out in the bivvy, or have family members who would rather not, there is a 2 bedroom mobile home available for hire, and linen can be provided for each of the bedrooms for a small charge.

There are a number of shops and supermarkets a short distance away. There is a small supermarket, boulangerie and bank a mere 5 minutes up the road in Javron-Les-Chapelles, and a larger supermarket 10 minutes away in Lassay-les-Châteaux which also features a rather novel outside launderette should you feel the need. In Charchigné itself (2 minutes up the road), there is a boulangerie which also stocks essentials.
