We are a family run business, catering for the carp angler and their family. Fishing in France can sometimes be daunting the list of potential problems can put the angler and families off, problems like facilities, language, strange rules, licenses & stories of big fish that never appear, to name a few. We have experienced them all, so we decided to cater for the carp angler & their family ourselves.


After a year of searching we found this lake, which we have re-named Etang du soleil, which translated means pond of the sun. We offer drive & survive, all inclusive and a luxury lake side Log Cabin. The lake has a maximum of 9 pegs which gives each angler 1.5 acres to fish in.


The pegs can be booked in advance and we will endeavour to grant your request, however they are booked on a first to book basis. We have also constructed a peg for a disabled angler, as again the disabled angler has little choice when fishing in France.


Each of us has over 20 years carping in both England & France. Using our experience, we will provide a bespoke service just for you, this may be advice & help on fishing our lake, bait, tackle, food, transportation or where to go or what to do for the family.

We are flexible to accommodate most needs, if you have any special requirements please contact us with full details.
