£256 per angler in Sep 2017 includes...

The Villefond carp are growing and growing fast!  The average carp is now in the forties, there are at least 8 known carp over the magic 50lb barrier and the biggest resident was last caught at over 65lb.

However, Villefond is not a runs water; it's a serious big fish water and the carp wise up quickly so they will test your angling skills... but get your presentation right, encourage the fish to feed confidently, and you will experience some amazing and memorable carp fishing.

If targeting large carp in beautiful surroundings is your goal then it’s definitely a venue that you should visit for your carp fishing in France.

"Absolutely stunning venue! My second time back and it did not disappoint. Done my PB twice in the space of 24hrs. Owners are a pleasure to deal with and the food package is amazing, as always look forward to going back again."

Lee-John Saunders, April '17

Carp fishing in France at Villefond

First introduced to the carp fishing public in 2008, the complex is completely secure and can be found down a little used country road in a very tranquil corner of France.  Motorway links are excellent and the drive down from Calais is just over 5 hours, or around 3½ hours from St Malo.

The lake is a mature 8 acres which has been a fishery since the 1930’s.  It has good access to all pegs, with 7 purpose built swims, including one double, for a maximum of 6 anglers. The margins with their over-hanging trees and shrubs are definitely not to be ignored; they are really productive fish holding areas. There’s also a tree lined island which is reachable from most swims.

The lake is largely snag free open water and the hard clay bottom varies from 1 to 5 metres with only a small amount of silt in the deeper water.

There are crayfish present (that’s why the carp grow so big!) but with the modern angling techniques of skinning boilies with heat shrink tube and meshing baits these will not cause you problems. Go prepared, there’s lots of information on our Blog on how to combat them.

A 51lb Carp from Villefond

The lake has around two hundred carp with very little stocked under 20lb. They have grown exceptionally well  and if you take a look at the catch reports you’ll see that the average size is now pushing the 40lb+ mark and there are at least 8 known carp over the magic 50lb barrier and even in to the 60's now.

There are also 3 catfish with the biggest never being accurately weighed due to maxing out the anglers scales, but the second biggest has been accurately recorded at 75lb.


Please note;
The sturgeon which is shown in the venue video is no longer in the lake.

Facilities at Villefond

There's a clean lodge which houses the toilet, shower & wash basin. There's no internet access at the lake but the owners are happy for you to use the computer at their house (around 3 miles away) if you want to check Emails. We can also take anything you need charging up to the house.

A row boat is available for you to use but you must use a lifejacket (one is provided).

Un-hooking mats are supplied and must be used to prevent the transfer of disease.

There's also a carp barrow to help transport your tackle to your swim.

Unless you hire the mobile home accommodation, there is no fridge/freezer by the lake, however the bailiff is more than happy to take your bait/food/ice off site and deliver each day as required. We usually recommend taking air-dried baits to help with this.

 

Accommodation;

As a optional extra there's a very comfortable mobile home sited around 20m from the lake.  It offers you the chance to take a non-fishing guests & know they'll be happy... or maybe you just want a bit more comfort for yourself.  It offers;
