Fabulous as always! Third year here and back in 2023 and 2024. Clare and Graham are great hosts and nothing to much trouble. Food as always was fantastic!! Didn't want to go home! This has got to be the most relaxing holiday ever! 2023 can't come soon enough. Thank you so much.

This is my second time to this amazing place. It was a pleasure to see how well the lake has matured since 2016, a testament to Graham and Clares hard work and dedication. Once again the facilities are second to none and the gite which housed me and my friends was homely and extremely comfortable. Massive shout out to Clare for her amazing food and generosity in providing complimentary cocktails and ice cream on a warm day. The fish were in fantastic condition and it was a pleasure to grace some on the bank (including a PB). We will definitely be back. Massive thanks again Graham and Clare!

A brilliant break, lodge was clean and tidy. Fishing a little tough at the start of the week but picked up. Amongst others, 3 x 40's to 48lb!

A Fantastic place with great owners. Fishing became hard at the end of the week due to weather change but still, PB's smashed 4 times within the week! Will 100% be back! Loved the Nail game!

Third trip to this little piece of paradise - so welcome after the last 18 months!! As ever Graham and Clare were the perfect hosts, who can never do enough for you. Had some lovely weather so mum and I could do what we do best (sunbathing) and Mark enjoyed having the lake to himself although 6 fish was not as high as he had hoped. Roll on 2022 when we'll be back again. Amanda, Jan and Mark.

Because we went on a fishing holiday with our wife and our babies for the first time, we opted for a fishing water with a luxurious house.
And what a fun week we had with the 6 of us!
After a warm welcome we were given a tour of the house and along the lake. We noticed that everything was taken care of down to the last detail. We repeatedly said to each other “What a passion!”
The house with two bedrooms, a bathroom etc. is very cozy and really gives the feeling of staying in France. Because we didn't catch a lot at night and hooked a lot of fish during the day, we slept 'at home' for a few nights.
After breakfast we went after the beautiful carp from the beautiful swims and the women enjoyed the sun, their 'crochet' work and the hot tub !
The fishing week went 'formidable'! First of all, it was going to rain all week, but we were often surprised by a cloud and a sun ⛅️ And as far as the fish catches are concerned, we really hit it 'magnefique'!
-42 all beautiful fish!
-Four 20kg+ fish! (Unfortunately 2 doubled)
-25 out of 42 over 15kg!
Special thanks to Graham and Claire!
Fantastic people: Graham has done everything he can to unburden us. He was involved, but definitely not too involved. Nothing was too crazy, you texted and he came (be it for a nice fish, to facilitate scooping a fish, to bring a bait boat when ours stopped, to end pick up and take to the car during the week, etc.)
Okay this story may sound too très bien, therefore 1 catastrophe: they are so full that you have to wait way too long to come back! ?
A friendly greeting,
Stefan, Marlise, Maurits, Thera, and the babies (Lars & Laurèn)

Our first visit and we have had a great time! We have looked forward to this trip for 2 years, unfortunately the parents who were coming along could'nt make it due to the quarantine in the UK which was announced the night before. Our 3 year old was devastated but that all went away once we got here and Graham and Clare welcomed us and made us feel right at home. The kids have loved the space to run wild and the hot tub's lovely too! The fishing has been great despite only fishing limited hours, still managed 9 fish, the biggest being 39lb. Already booked for 2 years time for 2 weeks and we cannot wait to bring the parents along next time. Thank you so much for everything!! See you in 2022. Leah, Tom, Esme and Isla-Mae xxxx

First visit here and it was really incedible, weather wasn't too bad either which is always a bonus. Brilliant week to relax for us girls and the boys with their fishing. Relaxing in the sun and hot tub in the evening, a luxury! Thank you Graham and clare for being so welcoming and being amazing hosts as well as thank you to Teddy for an incredible week. We had a lovely trip to the zoo recommended by Clare and a nice walk around Vire. Even though, annoyingly, we are having to self isolate on our return to the UK the week away here has been worth it. Thank you so much guys :)

FISHING - Weather was really hot with temperatures hitting 38+ which resulted in the fishing being hard with 2 fish dropped and 4 banked which were really lovely fish. Second time here and now booked for the next 3 years. Its a beautiful lake, the swim set up is excellent with all equipment you need and Graham is a great source of help.
NON FISHING - Gite and surroundings are absolutely stunning. Clare and Graham are fantastic hosts! Can't wait for July 21! x

This is our 3rd trip to L'Angottiere, A first class fishery and a beautiful venue! We come with our wives who stayed in the Gite which is absolutely top notch and comfortable. We love coming here and are already booked for the next 2 years. Graham and Clare are fantastic hosts and are always on hand to help. The whole place is spotless and everything you need for a perfect fishing holiday. We had fish to 48/12, mostly in their 30's!

Wow! Another amazing week, both for the fishermen and non fishermen! Your hospitality is beyond any other fishery. Graham, you keep the fishery perfect! We cant wait to come back in 2020 and 2021 (one of us is coming twice in 2021). Thanks so much.
24 August 2019
We have had absolutely the best time! The 3 men have loved the challenging fishing. Steve has never put so much effort in! Pete and Dave were absolutely delighted with their PB's! Us girls have had such a peaceful potter and OMG the Hot Tub!! it's a must! Clare and Graham, thank you so much, you literally could not have done anymore to make our holiday better! Teddy has been one of the highlights of the week! In the words of Arnie... "We'll be back" xxx
17 August 2019
You have a stunning set up! The Gite is cosy and warm and with the added hot tub was absolutely lovely! The lodge is just whats needed for the one's fishing with some respite or to get a hot drink and freshen up. The lake is beautiful and is great to just sit and watch. We have had a very relaxing stay! You are both great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We hope to return at some point in the future xx
20 July 2019
Many thanks for another great week! Two great additions this year, 1) Electric in the swims! A Godsend! 2) Little Teddy Bear xx. Looking forward to returning next year x

The fishing is great, the facilities are bang on. I'm looking forward to my 3rd visit in 2020. The availability really sums up how popular this place has become. Thank you Graham and Clare for a fantastic week at L'angottiere! A week my son will never forget!
22 June 2019
We all had a fantastic stay with excellent hosts in such a tranquil setting. The accommodation was very good and the whole venue lived up to all the reviews. Couldn't wish for a better fishing holiday (except for a few more fish)!
15 June 2019
Well back after a weeks fishing at this fabulous fishery. We had an amazing time from the moment we arrived, the warm welcome from Graham, Clare and teddy really set the tone of the week ahead. 15 fish banked - 11 x 30’s and 4 x 20’s including 2 grass carp! A couple of fish lost as well...
The weather wasn’t the kindest to us and the magical 40lb carp seemed to elude us. I can’t speak highly enough of the work that Graham and Clare have put in to this place it really is a special place and we will definitely back!!
Thanks again for a fab week...

Firstly to Clare, we loved the way you have tastefully designed your Gite from the delicate suitcases in the bedroom to the simple style of furniture and fittings that bring this adorable property together. Dianne loved you barrel log store and the colours from your living room light enhanced the warm felt feeling from the log fire. Well a week I won’t forget, having blanked and I’m sure a week that Nicola and Brendan will never let me forget. Graham you have turned these beautiful properties and lake into one of the best, idyllic and scenic venues in the whole of France. Amazing facilities, your work ethic and attention to detail at every swim I’m sure will bring you the rewards you both thoroughly deserve.

Where do we start? What a fantastic week we have all had here. Graham and Clare are so welcoming and the whole experience makes it a perfect holiday. Accommodation is first class! Leah loved the Lodge to herself and the Gite is gorgeous! Nothing was too much trouble and they have excellent recommendations for days out for those that are not fishing. Gutted next year is booked up but we have booked for 2020 and 2021. Thank you so much
