Carp fishing in France with accommodation

Vaux has become a firm favourite with Angling Lines customers – many return year after year. Take a look at the customer feedback and it’s not hard to see why. A stunning house that will sleep up to 10, sat on the banks of a prolific carp lake that you get all to yourself.

"Les Vaux" or the Etang du Moulin des Vaux, to give it it's full French name, is a superb stone built mill house that dates back to the 16th Century and is set in the lush green countryside on the borders between Brittany, Normandy and the Pays de la Loire. It is approximately 2 hours from the ferry port of Caen and 1½ hours from St. Malo. The very pretty private lake that lies next to the house dates back over 300 years and had never previously been used as a commercial fishery until it was purchased in 2002 by its English owners, Chas and Josie Cook, who have restored the lakeside house to a very high standard and stocked the lake with fish. The accommodation and venue has been specifically designed with the family fishing holiday in mind.

Just a few minutes walk from the venue is the local village shop/boulangerie where you can buy basic provisions such as milk and bread/pastries fresh baked on the premises daily (closed Mondays). You will also find a tabac (for cigarettes) within the local garage and a pizza van arrives in the village main road each Thursday evening. Fougères and its supermarkets is a ten minute drive away.

 

'Gite lovely and lake immaculate in a lovely part ot France. Chas was as lovely as ever with loads of advice and fishing stories."

Carp fishing in France with accommodation at Vaux

The lake is of approximately 3½ - 4 acres of open water with a Category 1 trout stream entering at the top. It varies in depth from 4.5 metres at the dam wall to 50 cms at the shallow top end. The average depth in the centre along the original river bed is around 2.7 to 3m, with margins averaging 1.4m to 1.7m.

Access is by foot around three quarters of the bank side, where there is ample space for anglers to set up rod pods and bivvies should they wish to do so. All the swims and access to them are suitable for the wheelchair bound angler. Portable barbeques are available for use in each swim. The bed of the lake varies a great deal, from stone to sand to gravel, with silt deposited along the stream bed, as would be expected.

The origin of the lake was as a quarry, with the extracted stone used to build the 500 years old church in the nearby village. This extraction has left a number of quite defined steps on the lake bed along the house side bank, whereas the far bank is predominately sand and gravel.

Adjacent to the lake is the old mill in which a lock-up is available to store tackle and bait and where there is also a bait freezer for anglers to keep their bait in top condition. The mill is available as a winter cold season hard bivvie. Fish from the dam wall and bivvie in the mill. You can be on your rods at all times (exterior lighting provided) and have the use of full cooking facilities by your side (cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster), with unlimited tea and coffee provided. Shower, toilet and washing up facilities will continue to be available only in the gîte. Optional heating can be provided in the mill at an extra charge.

Bait can be obtained on-site and will be available on arrival. Also available on site are carp and trout pellets in bulk and a variety of ready prepared particles; hemp, maize, jumbo tiger nuts, mixed seed, wheat.

A 38lb Carp from Vaux

The lake was stocked in 2003 with around 280 carp, a mixture of mirrors, commons and koi.

Efforts were made to stock good quality fish, heavily scaled mirrors and linears, plus commons. All stock is of the fast growing Czech Royale strains.

The majority of carp now range from 20 to 40lb+, with the lake record currently standing at over 60lb.

Any small carp that may be occasionally caught will be from the original stock, or will have bred since the owners acquired the venue and will be removed to the stock lakes to grow on.

Facilities at Vaux

The facilities on this venue are quite simply superb!

The totally renovated mill cottage is a magnificent building built from stone. It has been gutted from top to bottom by Chas and Josie and each room has been renovated, decorated and furnished to a very high standard.

The house has three upstairs bedrooms that comprise of one double room, one twin room and a third bedroom with two triple bunk beds (double beds underneath and single bunk above.) This room would be ideal for the kids. These bedrooms could accommodate up to ten people. Bed linen is provided free of charge, with beds already made up on arrival.

There is a large bathroom with toilet, washbasin, bath and shower upstairs, while the ground floor shower room has toilet, wet room shower and washbasin.

On the ground floor the kitchen is large and well equipped with everything one would need for a week's holiday - electric hob and oven, microwave, slow cooker, fridge, free standing freezer, dishwasher and washing machine plus all the crockery and cutlery one would expect. There is a tumble drier located in the mill lock-up.

The living room is also big and comfortable with settees and armchairs arranged around a wooden coffee table. The large screen television set in the corner is tuned in to receive English Sky satellite TV. Please note that only Freesat programmes are available.  If you wish to watch other channels, you could bring your own Sky cards with you, but please remember to remove them from the receiver to take home with you at the end of your holiday. In in addition you will find a dvd player, for which you will be able to borrow a selection of dvds.

You also have the opportunity to connect to the internet whilst on holiday at Vaux. WIFI access is available in the gîte and also at each swim location.

In the garden behind the gîte, you will find a masonry charcoal barbeque standing beside the lake, with a picnic table beneath an old apple tree – wonderful for al fresco eating on a warm summer’s evening. There is also a clothes line (pegs supplied).

 

When the carp bask, but won’t bite on those hot summer days, what could be better than to laze away part of the day in water yourself? Children and adults alike have enjoyed cooling dips in the over-ground pool, set up in the garden between the gîte and the mill.


For the disabled angler the house is exceptionally well appointed.  It has a double door entrance which opens to 945mm width and internal doorways of 860mm into the ground floor WC/shower room and 810mm into the living room... all wide enough to allow wheelchairs full access throughout the ground floor. In the ground floor shower room there's a toilet with adjacent handrail and raised toilet seat, plus washbasin and wet room shower.  A single bed for the disabled angler with height raisers, plus another bed for a companion if required, can be installed in the ground floor living room.  There is still plenty of room in the living room for socialising.
