The exclusive carp lake in France with
the fish that dreams are made of !
Les Croix is a real carp anglers lake. Here you can enjoy the best available angling environment with peace and tranquility, beautiful pristine carp, lovely lakeside accommodation - without the risk of having your holiday
spoiled by others ! An old school venue - where proper carp fishing, casting and baiting up from the bank
are the norm, where fish can be caught in the margins and in daylight, and played to the net from the bank
with no hidden snags or weedbeds. Just you and the carp - for a stress-free holiday !
The venue is available for exclusive bookings only. A maximum of 6 rods are allowed per week - this doesn't focus primarily on maximum income ... but it does provide the most enjoyable and productive angling situation along with a relaxing exclusive holiday for our discerning clientele. The venue is unique, being owned by a qualified fisheries manager - this is a fishery that was created and managed correctly from day one.
Unlike the majority of French venues where revenue is the driving force and the fish are regarded as a
commodity for generating income, Les Croix is run with pride and passion by a long term carp angler -
who also has the relevant knowledge and background which is required to manage a fishery in the long term.
This fishery has a balanced stock of big pristine carp along with an up and coming number of young fish.
It's not a runs water but has a stock of fish that very few venues can aspire to. We don't exaggerate our
fish stock as so many others seem to do, but Les Croix can produce the catch that you have dreamed of !
Short sessions, resting the lake in between, combined with regular baiting produce the best results.
In May 2016, long time carper Jim Nicholson - on his first visit to Les Croix caught 19 fish including
2 upper 60's, 2 mid 50's, 7 x 40's and 5 x 30's. Not a one-off catch by any means - the following week,
13 x 40's and 4 x 50's were caught, and all were different fish.... enough said !
In 2019 another of our regular anglers, John Sullivan, caught 28 carp in a week, with 5 x30's, 10 x 40's,
1 x 50, and 3 x 60's included in his catch, once again showing the amazing potential of the venue.
We have never needed to advertise Les Croix - having always operated "under the radar". We believe
that understated quality and word of mouth is the best advertising - although the truth is that many of
our clients tend to keep the venue to themselves !
The feedback from 2008 when the venue opened, and the 80% rate of repeat bookings confirm the
popularity of the venue. The English owners live on site and are available 24/7 ffering an unrivalled
level of service, ensuring the best holiday for you, and security for your tackle and belongings .
