Mas Bas Lotus Lake is a venue specialising in exclusive carp fishing holidays that have facilities for all the family 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 Carp fishing in France with accommodation.

Cottage, 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 covered outside eating area sit right on the lakeside, so the whole family can really be together whilst your rods are right in front of you.

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 other airports to consider flying in to are Bordeaux and Toulouse, both around 1hr 20mins away from the venue.

 

'"Mas Bas is something quite special, I have no other desire to go any where else really, ticks all my boxes as a venue to take my family and kids."

James Harford, August '16

Carp fishing in France with accommodation at Mas Bas Lotus Lake

The 2 lakes on the complex (Main Lake & Lotus Lake) are 45 years old and still contain some of the original stock fish.  Lotus is the smaller of the two lakes but still contains approximately 110 carp to around 49lb.

It is sold exclusively with Willow cottage which is sited right on the bankside. Lotus lake is around an acre in size and generally only fished by 1 or 2 anglers. The eating area of Willow cottage sits on the main swim, but there are plenty of other swim options too.

The lake has snags and fallen trees furthest away from the accommodation and generally has some Lotus lilies in the far margins. The outlet of the stream running through both lakes is to the rear of Willow cottage, so the fish are also attracted close in here. This really is the most attractive location to enjoy your carp fishing in France with accommodation.

IMPORTANT NOTE; A French fishing licence is required at this venue. The cost is included and is arranged each week directly by Gilles the owner.

A 45lb Carp from Mas Bas Lotus Lake

The pretty Lotus Lake holds around 110 hard fighting carp up to 45lb.

There are a few 30's and 40's, with the rest mainly good twenties and doubles. The lake also offers koi, tench, zander, pike, bream and black bass.

Each year the owner generally introduces a few  extra carp to supplement the existing stock. This makes Lotus well stocked for its size.  An aerator keeps oxygen levels up in the summer to encourage feeding.

Mas Bas cannot be regarded as an out and out  “runs” water, but it fishes well and is generally consistent each week. Just a little application can bring excellent results and with the lake exclusively booked you can feed your swim and venture away for the day with every prospect of great carp catches on your return.

Facilities at Mas Bas Lotus Lake

Mas Bas Lotus Lake offers a basic furnished lakeside house that ideally sleeps 4. The main selling point here though is the beautiful lakeside terrace looking out to the lake and valley beyond.

There is a lovely 11 x 5 m swimming pool set in lawned grounds just 25 meters from the house, alongside a badminton net, and boules area for the use of guests. 


There is also wifi available and guests report no problems with this, however please do bear in mind that Mas Bas is situated in a valley in the middle of the countryside.

 

The cottage: 

In terms of sleeping arrangements, the cottage has a double room & twin room. There is also an additional mezzanine level, accessed by a quite narrow & steep staircase, which has a double bed and there can be a single fold-out bed put up here for a child (under 10) if needed. However, please note that the mezzanine level is partially open to the landing area so not fully private and not ideal access for younger children (or indeed older adults!)

Downstairs there is the well equipped kitchen where you will find a microwave, gas cooker, fridge and dishwasher. There is also a compact dining area here which leads through to the ground-floor double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, containing a shower, handbasin, w.c. and laundry room.


Open stairs out of the kitchen go up to the twin bedroom and the small sitting room which has a sofa and Satellite TV (with basic English channels). Both rooms have French doors onto a walkway/terrace linking directly to the lakeside covered BBQ area and main swim. There is a large bathroom on this level.


Bed linen, including sheets & towels, is provided. There is also a travel cot available upon request, please let us know before your trip.

Outside at the front of the house is another terrace, shaded by large weeping willows, with table chairs and BBQ. There is an outside stairway leading back to the lake level and lakeside terrace. 

 

Fishing equipment:

We provide carp cradles free of charge that we prefer you to use for the safety of our fish. There is a small security deposit for each, which will be returned at the end of the week if everything is okay.

 


Activities near by: 

As well as the facilities on site, there is also horse riding and tennis 4kms away. The area is rich in historical interest with neighbouring villages dating back to the 12th century; the main towns of Agen (20 mins away) and Villeneuve-sur-Lot (30 mins away) provide this exceptionally tranquil area with hustle and bustle, colourful markets, good shopping and excellent restaurants. The closest villages, Beauville and Laroque have garages, banks, chemists, bakers and very reasonably priced, good country restaurants.


Mas Bas offers an almost unbeatable combination of great carp fishing and french ambiance, which proves very popular for both families and groups of anglers seeking big carp with a few home comforts right on hand.

Important note; Guests are asked to pay a security deposit on arrival which is fully refunded when the cottage is left clean & tidy with no breakages.  Logs are available for the wood burning stove.  If you require the central heating on an additional charge is payable for each cottage.
