Wonderful family oriented venue Pam and mark very good hosts.  Fishing is the best we have had in France unfortunately no PBs this time.  With 8 fish over 20lb still excellent, can’t wait to come back next year, see you June 5th 2010

What a superb holiday! We can’t wait to go back. The accommodation, facilities and hospitality were excellent, so too was the fishing. Lots of fish caught, plenty of doubles, a few twenties, the four sturgeon. Broke my PB with a 26.8lb, booked to go back later in the year, so I’m saving the bigger fish till then!
