Set in the north of the Poitou Charentes countryside, Kingfisher Lake offers exclusive use of the 2.1 acre spring-fed lake and a modern well-equipped gite for up to four people. Kingfisher is ideal for families or small groups of anglers that want a relaxing holiday with excellent fishing right on the doorstep. There are a wide range of carp from singles to 40lb+, with a small stock of other coarse fish too - perch, roach, pike and zander. 

The comfortable two bedroom accommodation has a large open plan salon with wifi, English satellite TV and all the mod cons you would expect.  After a days fishing you can dine inside or outside on the deck, which sits only 8-10 metres from the lake.

Set in over 12 acres, this venue offers a secure, family friendly environment for exclusive carp fishing in France with accommodation.  With its own prairie, woods and a river, the surroundings attract a rich selection of wildlife. There are also mountain bikes available at no extra charge for exploring the area.

If you'd prefer to cut down on the driving time and fly then flights are available into Poitiers with Ryanair or Nantes with FlyBe. Car rental is available at both airports. Nantes airport is a 1 hour 10 minute drive and Poitiers a 45 minutes drive from the venue.

"Extremely happy with the facilities, location and the hosts. Lovely genuine people who have carved a little slice of paradise for your enjoyment. Could not recommend this place highly enough."

Exclusive carp fishing France with accommodation at Kingfisher Lake

The teardrop shaped lake was constructed in 1982. Depth ranges from 1m at the gite end to 5m at the dam wall.  The lake bed varies with areas of sandy gravel, thin silt and then deeper silt towards the centre of the dam wall.  The lake has plenty of margins within casting distance, thus not spooking the fish.

There are four swims, but you have the freedom to fish from wherever you choose and it is possible to walk all the way round the lake making stalking fantastic fun.  Remnants of two old sunken oak tree stumps act as underwater features, there is also an island of boulders and patches of water lilies that give the carp somewhere to loiter.

As with many French lakes, there can be crayfish present at Kingfisher Lake and so if you are fishing in the hot summer months when they are most active it is best to go prepared - you can find lots of information here for combatting crayfish in France.


Located 3km from the local village the property is fully secluded and tranquil, mostly surrounded by farmland and away from any main roads, providing the perfect environment for exclusive carp fishing in France.

A 23lb Carp from Kingfisher Lake


The number of carp for a 2.1 acre lake ensures that you should have plenty of action, in terms of size you can expect anything from singles up to the forties (although the smaller fish have been actively thinned out over the winter of 2017). 

Constructed in 1982 by the original farm owner, the lake was not fished prior to 2013.  It was originally stocked with small carp, zander, perch, pike, roach and tench.  The lake was drained in 2014 and the carp, who had been allowed to multiply unchecked over the years, were reduced from 122 to 76 of the largest.  

In January 2015 seven new carp between 22-36lb were added, including one grass carp. Two years later a further 23 carp between 21-35lb were added and 33 of the smallest carp removed. In March 2017 a further two carp were added at 34lb and 40lb.


The carp have a plentiful supply of natural food, including indigenous crayfish and they are fed pellet to supplement their natural diet. This should ensure good health, growth levels and that the natural food is not fully depleted.
