Welcome, to the web site of five lovely carp and catfish lakes all set close together on a very private estate in north-west France. All the lakes are fully legal, registered and insured in France.
Collectively known as Etangs De Breton- the lakes contain an excellent head of both common, leather and mirror carp. These include carp to well over 40lb, with many 20lb and 30lb specimens. The lakes also contain numerous Wels’ catfish to 140lbs plus the usual coarse species.
Our aim is to provide exclusive, traditional and non-commercial carp and cat fishing on five beautiful small lakes all set close together in very private and tranquil surroundings. Each lake on the complex also has its own comfortable accommodation included in the price.
Poplars Lake and Birch Lake can be booked exclusively for up to three anglers. Two of the lakes - Eagle Lake and Peter's Pool - are now only available exclusively to single parties of up to three anglers who have both lakes to fish! Orchard Lake is absolutely gorgeous and is suitable for two carp anglers, a fishing couple or the small family.
All the lakes are classic English-style estate lakes, and are all stream-fed and rich in natural food. Although all the lakes are close together you cannot see one lake from the other. This is an excellent feature. Once you set-up, you and your party has total privacy, and you are free to come and go as you please. The whole complex is owned by long time carp fisherman and angling writer, Paul Selman.
The five beautiful lakes lie in tranquil and very private woodland surroundings set in rolling French countryside. The complex is entirely enclosed by fencing and secure gates, and the acres of woodland which surround the lakes provide complete seclusion and quiet.
The property lies off a quiet back road; there is no noise other than the resident wildlife, which includes red squirrels, kingfishers, ducks, deer, songbirds and birds of prey.
