42.13lb personal best mirror carp.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Daves Boilies, lots of them mixed with few pellet. Bait boat is a must to get into those tricky spots without spooking them.
Were the facilities what you expected?
Second to none, better than most hotels your likely to stay in.
Were you happy with them?
100% yes
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
As someone previously posted, no I wouldn't. This place needs to be kept a secret.

This was our first time fishing in France for the big carp and not only was it the best weeks fishing holiday but the best holiday I can remember. Big thanks to David Gordon at Carp-France for organising everything, it all went smoothly and a huge thanks to Dave, Caroline, Graham & Jules for making the week so special.

Would you recommend our services to a friend?
100per cent yes. To be so helpful in out-of-hours and on a Bank Holiday Friday was beyond the call of duty.
Firstly many thanks for helping us to arrange this holiday literally at the last minute, (12 hours prior to boarding our ferry) due to being cancelled at our original booking when we were all packed up ready to go. Luck was certainly on our side when we spoke to David Gordon at Carp-France at 8pm on the Friday evening, by 9pm we were all booked up at our new venue. Many thanks David. The only thing to say about Etang Marolles is fantastic! The fish are in brilliant condition and sizes, the facilities are the best we have ever experianced, food fabulous, and the owners David and Caroline were helpful beyond belief.

started the 2 week annual trip on the Saturday morning after a long journey, but this time it was for 2weeks and we couldn't wait to get stuck in to them lumps. after choosing pegs we where all set up fairly close together and it started ok with a few fish .then after the second day I decided to move into peg one away from the other lads which turned out to be the best decision resulting in some great action ,overall this was the best 2 weeks I have ever had Dave and Caroline are fantastic hosts and really make you feel welcome. also Dave is a great help with anything you need and Caroline is a great cook so I deeply recommend the food package .overall we all enjoyed the holiday and the fishing .the pegs are great and really well set out .also the facilities are some of the best I have seen, if you want to catch fish in superb condition and be me made to feel welcome and have some cracking food then visit Etang marolles .
