Easily our best French family holiday yet! Yvonne & Glenn were perfect hosts. We had the 4 bed cottage and the lakeside mobile home. The accommodation was immaculate and very well equipped. Our 8 year old daughter rode the horses nearly every day. She was devasted to leave La Verrerie. Our 4 year old son loved the heated pool, the trampoline and swings. There is so much to do for all the family.

Well over 200 fish between the three of us.27lb the biggest.tons of twenties and upper teens.fished the other lake for an afternoon and had the sturgeon three times.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Bigger baits=bigger fish. Used home made chocolate and banana cream boilies and a piece of sausage did the trick for the sturgeon,he loved it.to be honest I think any good quality bait will produce fish.
Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes perfect

Brief details of your catches
First 3 days conditions quite good but all I could catch was annoyingly small 4Lb to 6 Lb commons. Last 3 days weather turned into an unbearable heatwave and yet better quality fish up to 23lb started coming out. This isn't my usual type of lake as while I like to have a few runs, I also like the average size to be high 20's and 30's. My recommendation would be to set up a stock pond and to take out all of the small carp and only put them back in when they have reached a decent size
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Maize and pellets were the most successful baits. Cell boilies didn't produce much at all but when I changed to Rahja Spice I started to catch on boilies. Most takes came from by the islands but the bigger fish came from a deeper hole in open water on the right hand side if looking from the mobile home bank.
Were the facilities what you expected?
Better.
Were you happy with them?
Very much so.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
For the friendliness, facilities and environment, definitely. For the casual angler, probably but for the serious angler, the lakes need netting and the small fish taken out.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, and have done before.
Fished dozens and dozens of waters all over France, but this was the first time at La Verrerie. Owned by a lovely couple in Yvonne and Glenn ( sorry about your football team's new manager) I should also apologise to Georgie as she thought that I sounded like Ricky Gervaise, sorry to disappoint you Georgie. Lovely friendly dogs and loads of bird life. Mobile home quite nice aswell.

In the week we caught around 60 fish , 8 20s the rest mainly between 15 &18, we fished only day times till around 6.30with the odd10 o'clock ,there seemed to be no specific best time to fish and we think some were still spawning
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Most boilies worked also bread on top for some of the smaller commons
Were the facilities what you expected?
The van was not what you would call luxurious but it's location was superb and it was clean and tidy if your just there for the fishing it is totally adequate.
Were you happy with them?
Yes more than happy would certainly return
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes already have done
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes
First time carp fishing and for us it was brilliant ,the location of the van is fantastic about 15 feet away from the lake, if you want peace and quiet and an abundance of wildlife this is the place. After a week was still feeling lucky to be there and would definitely return. Hosts glen and Yvonne were great very friendly and helpful.

Over 150 fish between us and over half of these were doubles with alot in the mid to upper doubles bracket but also had 7x 20's and and the Catfish at 62lb..oh and the sturgeon lots of times!
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Fishing boilees and feeding little and often for the better fish..anything worked for the smaller ones..method, bags etc.
Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, Caravan was fine and alot of the good fish including the Cat actualy came from the small lake in front of the caravan but we also had access to the other lake which is a better looking and bigger lake.

Fantastic family holiday, accommodation was great, fishing was excellent. Over a hundred fish with the best bordering on 30lb, even the small fish fight hard. Glen is very helpful and always available for advice and a Bump start. The kids enjoyed the horse and bike riding which are available. The shop is only 5 mins away for everything you need. Totally enjoyable week, looking forward to next year.

The fishing here is fantastic I caught fish all day long never a dull moment I had my personal best here 22 pound mirror and lots of variation. there was another family there at the same time and I saw them catch some much larger fish but not sure what.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
the preferred bait is definitely boilies but I also caught on worms and sweetcorn. Glen is full of advice and will recommend the exact type of boilies bought locally.
Were the facilities what you expected?
we stayed in the cottage and the photos do not do it justice this is a truly lovely place and more than we expected. there is a massive caravan by the lakes that looks vey comfortable and convenient if you where there just for the fishing.
Were you happy with them?
very, could not fault it although the swimming pool was cold but I do know the Gibsons are working on that.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
No doubt.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
No doubt
on holiday with my family so I didn't intend to do to much fishing but there is so much for everyone to do that I was able to slip away often. the Gibsons are lovely people and are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble, Glen even taking time out to help me land my personal best. The lakes and the surrounding area are captivating very quiet, wild life, horses.etc. There are not many places I have been to that I would definitely return to but this is one of them, but this time it would be just for the fishing.you can loose yourself here.

We caught a lot of 5kg carps, some of 7kg, 8kg, 9kg. We caught also two carps of 10kg and three carps of 11,5kg and one of 12kg. We also caught both of the sturgeons (one is 7kg and one 5kg) and we caught both of them more than once (i think 3-4 times each).
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
pop-up corn boiles (for carp) with fish and fruit fragrance worms
Were the facilities what you expected?
yes! More than that.
Were you happy with them?
The mobile house at the lake was very cool =D we spend almost all the time there. The best was the other house - it was very chilly inside (that was great since it was very hot outside) and the decoration was very beautiful. We very much liked the pool that was in the yard - the water was super chilly ! =D

La Verrerie is a very nice venue for anglers and family. We had our dog with us too, and it really enjoyed being there. We had really nice time. My 2 year old son was riding horse, also me and my partner went on horse riding with Yvone. I would absolutly recommend this venue for everyone who is excited about fishing and for families with small and biger childerns - if you have a dog he will definitly enjoy himself running around the lake =D

20 carp to 27lb+ only fished 2 nights so probably would have double that amount if we had fished hard. fish seemed to come at any time but early morning seemed best, fish were getting ready to spawn so that slowed it down a bit too!

Ace Baits Scopex boilies and matching pellets fished 4-6 feet from the islands single or double 18mm boilies on size 6 hooks,

Over twenty carp to 27lb 12oz ( 6 carp over 20lb ) And the sturgeon !
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Cell boilies over particles, sweetcorn, Robin Red and various pop-ups. I think if the fish are feeding then most boilie flavours and set ups will work. At one stage we had 3 carp on at the same time, on 3 different baits on 3 different rig types. The weather was really hot but we caught fish at various times of the day and night.
Were the facilities what you expected?
We hired the Gite as well as the mobile home and were very pleased with both.
