L'Angottiere Carp Fishery is the perfect place if you want to get away from it all and have exclusive use of your own French carp lake. We are a 3.5 acre spring fed lake offering you a choice of accommodation to suit your needs, nestled in the beautiful region of Normandy and surrounded by rolling countryside and little more than farm animals and acres of maize growing fields.
We are easy to reach, just over an hour from Caen and St Malo, 2 hours from Le Havre and approximately 4 hours from Calais.
L’Angottiere Carp Fishery is owned and run by myself Graham and my wife Clare. We took the plunge in February 2015 and gave up our hectic lifestyle in England to fulfill my lifetime dream of owning and running a Carp Fishery. We purchased L’Angottiere here in Normandy in August 2015 after spending 6 months roaming France in search of the ‘perfect lake’ and opened to anglers in the summer of 2016.
After a busy period, netting/draining the lake and removing 150 kilos of silver fish we rebuilt the blocked vidange (drain), built swims, refurbished the anglers accommodation and added to the existing stock of Carp giving us a good mix of Common and Mirror Carp ranging between 20lb-44lb+ with a good head of 30’s. We live on site in our own cottage which is tucked well away from the lake and accommodation. Once you are settled in we will leave you in peace but are here if you need us for help, information or tips but our aim to is to provide you with the privacy to enjoy your holiday.
At the time of writing (October 2017) we are drawing towards the end of our second season. It has been every bit as enjoyable as we’d hoped it would be and we have met some great people and made some really good friends along the way.
Our booking levels have far exceeded our expectations with only a couple of weeks now left available in 2018 and several bookings for 2019! Many of those are repeat bookings for the second and even third time. Figures, we think, that can only speak for themselves!
We believe the reason that L’Angottiere Carp Fishery proves so appealing to anglers is because you can come away with friends or family and have use of the lake exclusively, in stunning surroundings, with peace and quiet, and the chance to land some beautiful specimen Carp.
If you enjoy tranquility, then you’ve found the right place, as not just aimed at anglers, our secluded location, charm and unique way of doing things means that anglers, friends and families can all enjoy a holiday of a lifetime with exclusive use of their own French carp lake.
