Brief details of your catches
Fishing was extremely difficult with no fish caught in the week. Not sure what the problem was other than the extreme heat of the week well over 30c. Tried everything I had including the 'house' bollies and pellet - they would not take a bait even when crashing directly over the top of it. Very disappointing fishing week - I have not blanked in France before so this was a first for me !.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Nothing worked and I tried everything !
Were the facilities what you expected?
Better than expected.
Were you happy with them?
Nets were in a very poor state and were held together with insulation tape. A new net was supplied but the net arms did not fit the pole - we wedged then in with pieces of wood and taped them up.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Maybe on a different week the fishing would be better ? but for it to fish so badly I would hesitate to recommend.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes.
Excellent house and facilities - everything you need in a lovely setting - very comfortable.

I don't want to give it a good review as I want to keep it all to myself. Its an amazing place, the best fishing venue we have been too. We have already booked for next year, and fingers crossed I can sneak another trip later this year.

Beautiful house in a very quiet pretty village. The house has everything you could want for and more! Have been to many fishing venues and this is by far one of the best for accommodation. Swims are very close to the house, so very easy fishing too.

I have been travelling to France for the past 20 years fishing numerous lakes. This has the best accommodation by far with a lovely lake to enjoy too. Weather conditions and the brightest full moon I have ever seen conspired against our catch rates but we still had a great family holiday!
