We know it can be difficult convincing the rest of the family that your carp fishing holiday will be the perfect getaway for them too. We also know we’ve got a handful of venues that tick all the boxes; excellent fishing, accommodation and the swimming pool.
Take a look at these;
1. Mas Bas
Mas Bas is an 80-acre estate with two lakes specialising in exclusive carp fishing holidays that have facilities for everyone to enjoy, whether or not they fish. It’s set in the heart of rural south-west France and the privacy of the site offers tranquil family holidays with the added bonus of excellent carp fishing for carp to over 50lb.
Mas Bas benefits from the lovely sunny climate of southern France… but if you don’t fancy the drive from the UK why not consider flying? The nearest airport, Bergerac, is around 1 hour away and we’ve seen flights as low as £60 return. You can hire all your tackle & buy bait on-site so it’s a real option.
The main lake and house can accommodate groups of up to 11 people, with a maximum of 4 anglers fishing the lake. The layout here is unbeatable, the beautiful house and private swimming pool sit right on the banks of the lake, with incredible views of the valley.
Excellent little cottage, private swimming pool, specimen carp fishing – you can’t help but fall in love with this venue. People return again and again because the house and terraced seating area is right on the lakeside, so the whole family can really be together whilst your rods are right in front of you. The house is best suited to four people and the lake is ideal for one or two anglers.
This beautiful spring fed 12 acre lake and the scaly mirrors and commons are absolute stunners – most guests catch more fish than they ever thought possible! Add a swimming pool and lodge where you can literally fish out of the front door, or for those craving more luxurious surroundings a gite just five minutes walk away. With both the gite and lakeside lodge the venue can sleep up to 8 people, with a maximum of 6 anglers fishing the lake.
Set in 14 acres of countryside, Les Landes is a real gem. Big carp, great accommodation sleeping four, jacuzzi and swimming pool… what more could you want?
Les Landes benefits from the lovely sunny climate of southern France, set in the heart of the Dordogne. With plenty of carp stocked to over 60lb, the four acre lake will impress any angler and the excellent lakeside facilities and stunning local area will keep non-anglers more than happy too.
The next venue has an above-ground splash pool, but we can attest that this is more than enough to cool down in the hot French summers…
Remieu is a charming little lake set in the heart of the Mayenne, surrounded by countryside and the nearby river.
The lake is ideal for one or two anglers and there is a lovely well-equipped two bedroomed gite situated just 70m from the lake. An added luxury is the above ground pool by the gite, which offers guests somewhere to cool off on those warm summer days. You’ll be sure of a warm welcome here and optional food packages and bait are available.
