L’Angottiere is the perfect place if you want to get away and have exclusive use of your own fishing lake including our luxury lakeside Lodge. We are a 3.5 acre spring fed lake offering you a choice of accommodation to suit your needs, whether it be the lakeside Lodge or our 2 bedroom detached Gite with a Hot Tub option situated only 50 metres from the lake.

We are nestled in the beautiful region of Normandy and surrounded by rolling countryside and little more than farm animals and acres of Maize growing fields. We are easy to reach, just over an hour from Caen and St Malo and approximately 4 hours from Calais.

L’Angottiere is now owned and run by myself Graham and my wife Clare. We took the plunge in February 2015 and gave up our hectic lifestyle in England to fulfill my lifetime dream of owning and running a Carp Fishery. We purchased L’Angottiere in August 2015 after spending 6 months roaming France in search of the ‘perfect lake’ and opened the doors to anglers in the summer of 2016.

After a busy period, netting/draining the lake and removing 150 kilos of silver fish we have rebuilt the blocked vidange (drain), built swims, refurbished the anglers accommodation and added to the existing stock of Carp giving us a good mix of Common and Mirror Carp ranging between 20lb-40lb plus with a good head of 30’s. We live on site in our own cottage which is tucked well away from the lake and accommodation. We are here if you need us for help or information but our aim to is provide you the privacy to enjoy your holiday.
We believe the reason that L’Angottiere is proving so appealing to anglers is because you can come away with friends or family and have use of the lake exclusively, in stunning surroundings, with peace and quiet, and the chance to land some beautiful specimen Carp.

If you enjoy tranquility, then you’ve found the right place, as not just aimed at anglers, our secluded location, charm and unique way of doing things means that anglers, friends and families can all enjoy a holiday of a lifetime.

Note: Should you wish to book the Gite instead of The Lodge, please call 01455 220390. The additional cost for the Gite is £250. Should you have a larger party, the lake, Lodge and Gite are available for £1,500.

L’Angottiere sits in 14 acres of grounds and hosts a variety of wildlife including kingfishers, deer and if you are lucky enough to visit us at the right time of year some amazing dragon flies!

Our 3.5 acre spring fed lake is the perfect place if you want to get away from it all. We are nestled in the beautiful region of Normandy and surrounded by rolling countryside and little more than farm animals and acres of Maize growing fields.

You have an opportunity to come away with family or a friend or two and have exclusive use of our lake and luxury lakeside Lodge in stunning surroundings, with peace and quiet and the chance to land some beautiful specimen Carp. If you wish (or can put your rods down) you can also explore the fascinating history that Normandy has to offer.
We are easy to reach, just over an hour from Caen and St Malo and approximately only 4 hours from Calais.

As we are only opening our doors for the first time this summer we are venturing a little into the unknown. The lake was fished for a few days in September and October 2015, before the necessary works to get L’Angottiere ready as a fishery began and we discovered some beautiful Carp.
With the additional stocking having taken place in January 2016, we are looking forward to this summer, seeing how the lake fishes and things unfold. These are exciting times and you have an opportunity to fish what we can only describe as almost a virgin water with certainly a good head of pristine Carp, many of whom have never been caught before!

If you are a competent angler we believe you can expect good results and see plenty of fish on the bank.

We have 4 islands offering margin fishing and overall varying depths with some interesting bottom features. The lake has no snags. Depths range from 2-10 feet and we have 4 large gravelled swims offering a choice of fishing on your own or with a friend. Free WIFI is available from all the swims.

Our pristine Mirror and Common Carp range between 20-40lb plus with a good head of 30’s so you have an opportunity to not only have the holiday of a lifetime but perhaps a fish of one too.


Lakeside Lodge

Our luxury Lakeside Lodge overlooking the Lodge swim is included as part of your exclusive package. It has a comfortable living area with English TV, a kitchenette and 2 small double sofa beds. There is a shower room and a large west facing balcony with table and chairs. Wifi is available which extends around the lake and we have plenty of parking.

We also have an option to upgrade to our Gite (subject to availability).


The fully equipped 2 double bedroom detached Gite can be found adjacent to the parking area and is situated only 50 yards from the lake. One of the bedrooms has 2 single beds and the other is a double with English TV. Bed linen is provided.

The living room has 2 sofas (1 is a sofa bed), English TV and a log burner for those chilly evenings.
The kitchen/diner with seating for 6 is well equipped with oven, hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, plus of course all the utensils, crockery and cutlery you need.

Upstairs there is a shower room with basin and toilet.
There is Wifi, English television, a DVD player as well as some films. You will also find a selection of books plus brochures of the surrounding area including local places of interest and restaurants.
The stairs are quite steep so the Gite is not really suitable for those with mobility problems and giants!

We also have a Hot Tub option at the Gite for a 30 euro supplement.

Outside Dining

Table and chairs are provided to enjoy ‘Al Fresco’ dining on sunny days.





We aim to make your stay at L’Angottiere as stress free as possible and can provide home cooked breakfasts and evening meals for 145 euros per person per week.

A choice of a breakfast baguette or continental option will be delivered to your swim daily with tea or coffee. The 2 course evening meal will be served in our rustic barn and comes with a glass of wine, a beer or soft drink.

If you have any questions or dietary requirements please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.


We offer a selection of baits for sale on site which we also use to feed the lake so you can be confident that they are successful and known to the fish.

Order 100 Euros worth of bait and receive 10kg of free pellet (worth 25 Euros)!!

In addition to our freezer range of Dynamite Baits boilies we can also supply you with pellet and particle. Our pellet is a dedicated carp pellet (low oil) allowing for all year round use.
