Unreal! From the second we arrived nothing was too much trouble. Food was outstanding, as was the fishing. 30 fish between the two of us including 4 x 40's and the magority of the others in the 30's. It is difficult to see how we are ever going to top this week. I guess we'll find out in May!! Thank you so much Graham and Clare, perfect hosts as usual. See you in 7 months! Dan and Steve

We've just returned from our first visit to L'Ang. Wow!!! What a place. Graham and Clare have thought of everything to create not only one of your most memorable fishing trips of a lifetime, but one of your most memorable holidays as well. The fishery is immaculate, Clare's food is phenomenal, and the fish themselves are stunning with a potential personal best just a few bleeps away. We had 20 fish between the four us from five days fishing and all landed personal bests including a stunning 40lb 11oz common for Dave and no less than a further nine fish over 30lb between us. A massive thank you to Graham and Clare who couldn't do enough for us. We can't wait to return next year...."If Carslberg did carp fishing...."

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! Clare made us a lovely meal which was AMAZING! 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. Very tasty breakfast too! 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! The food package is a must. The desserts are to die for! Can't wait for July 21! x
25 July 2020
Really enjoyed ourselves as usual! Graham and Clare have been amazing hosts providing us with great food, accomodation and laughs. Can't wait to come back and see you guys again!
18 July 2020
Would just like to thank you and Clare for a great week. Food and hospitality was spot on. Although the fishing was tough I love a challenge. Can't wait for next year!
11 July 2020
First visitors since lockdown! Missed our 2 weeks in May but finally made it! As beautiful as we remembered! 1 week is never enough! Fishing was a bit quieter than expected but i did catch the biggest fish in the lake. Lovely last evening (glad you managed to drag me away from my rods!). See you in June 2021x
3 November 2019
Many thanks for my recent visit to your beautiful lake and the opportunity to
catch your pristine specimen fish. Everything is a real credit to you both.
With obvious very hard work and meticulous planning you really have created
a little piece of paradise for lots of lucky anglers to enjoy for a very
long time to come. You are very lucky people to own it and witness people
fulfilling dreams. The week before the trip and knowing what the weather
was going to be like, I would have settled with 4 fish equaling my catch
June. But, against all odds, (the atrocious weather and the time of year)
and a phenomenal 11 fish it really was the trip of a lifetime and a dream
realised that I will never forget, and of course, the stonking 48lb 12oz PB
as the cherry on the cake! Not many people can say they are in the 40 club,
I at last can. I hope to visit you again some time in the future. Many
many thanks Garry

19 October 2019
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 food is amazing! 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!

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! The food has been one of the high lights of the week... along with Teddy! 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 and Clare's meals were delicious (definitely recommended)! You are both great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We hope to return at some point in the future xx
3 August 2019
Thanks for a great week both of you. Lovely food! Great people and wonderful fish! Really appreciate it.

29 June 2019
The fishing is great, the facilities are bang on, and the home cooked food done by Clare is top notch. Delicious! 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 food and 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. 4 of us fished the lake, with 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!!
The last mention has to go to Clare’s food it was was simply lovely! Thanks again for a fab week...
7 June 2019
Jim - Absolutely perfect! Food and hospitality is second to none! Both Graham and Clare are very friendly and helpful and made my week the most enjoyable I've had. Can't wait to return in 2021!
Ken - What a place! One of the best and well run fisheries I've ever seen. Graham knows his stuff, the fish are immaculate and the food is wonderful! Can't wait to come back and see you in 2021.
Chris - Graham and Clare are great hosts. Graham helps you with anything to do with the lake and Clare's food is next level. Thank you so much for a great week. Stunning lake!
1 June 2019
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. Thank you both so much for your kind hospitality, looking after us throughout the week and providing us with a lovely meal on our first nights stay, 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.
25 May 2019
This is our second visit to L'Angottiere. Highly recommend both the fishing and the food. Graham and Clare are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Enjoyed our stay very much and will return.

Graham - Lovely food! Great fishing! Great banter! 5* hosts! Many thanks to you both.
Steve - What can I say! Best we have ever had! Would come here just for the food! Thanks so much. Going to miss Teddy x
Dan - Unbelievable week! Both the fishing and food were incredible! Don't want to leave! To catch 3 x 40's in a week is ridiculous! The whole week will be very tough to beat.
11 May 2019
Poor conditions for the first 3 days which resulted in no fish, once the wind moved and rain came the fish switched on - all fish in superb condition! The food package was superb with excellent choice and presentation - you will not be hungry during your stay! Graham and Clare have been excellent hosts throughout our stay with nothing being too much trouble.
27 April 2019

Outstanding fishery! Graham and Clare, you are the perfect hosts and management! The food package is a must, it's more like eating in a 5 star restaurant than by the edge of a lake! Faultless!!! and Thank You

Our second time at L'Angottiere. Again, an excellent holiday! Accommodation first class! Graham and Clare were the best hosts, very accommodating, both going out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasurable. The fishing is hard but we banked 8 x 30's, a 41lber plus a couple of 20's. We would definitely recommend L'Angottiere. Thank you for a fab week!
25 August 2018
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! The food was amazing every day. Thank you Clare! 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

Awesome! Relaxing! Food is unreal! - Perfect! Thank you very much guys. See you in 2020! x
9 June 2018
Weather aside we have had a wonderful week. The fishing was hard with 6 fish banked but we only fished days! We based ourselves on The Shell swim but Mick roved about and spent time in all the swims. The lodge is immaculate and the best we've ever had. The lake is second to none with so many features to fathom out. The food package was outstanding. Graham and Clare are so passionate about each part they play, they are the perfect combination. Their pride in everything and their enthusiasm is reaping it's rewards (just try to book again and see what we mean!) Thank you soooooooo!! very much.
27 May 2018
Great week guys, many thanks. Beautiful lake and facilities! Love the place! We have rebooked for next year already!
13 May 2018
Just returned from my 2nd my husbands 3rd trip to L'Angottiere. Where to start! The welcome from Clare and Graham was as always a great start to our holiday, the accommodation more than comfortable and everything you need fishing or not. The food package was exceptional as always and the weather perfect for sunbathing if not for fishing!! We booked both the gite and the lodge. We totaled 24 fish for the week 711 lb of stunning carp 20's 30's and my pb of 41lb. We are going back in September and i cant wait!! We would recommend L'Angottiere to everyone but my only reservation is the more popular it is becoming we may have to wait longer between visits.
28 April 2018
Expectations were exceeded. Beautiful setting, not only for carp anglers but for non anglers (family) to enjoy the peaceful tranquility, comfortable clean accommodation and amazing food (taste and presentation). The lake is well maintained and stocked with some pristine, healthy, strong carp. A carpers paradise!!!
21 April 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We were made very welcome and relaxed and the peace and quiet was just what we needed. The fishing was enjoyed by all and we will definitely be back. Many thanks for a great week!
7 April 2018
Thanks Graham and Clare. Hospitality no.1! Wow! What a first week, 22 fish between us! We both had a fantastic time again. Food, as always, was excellent, the weather, well....... but that didn't knock the fish! Hope to see you both again soon. Kindest regards Jamie & Chris
14 October 2017
Great hosts, lovely venue, delicious food! Very nice! Thank you
30 September 2017

16 September 2017
Venue great! Hospitality homely! Food above and beyond! young venue, hard fishing but with potential. Will be back!!!!! Alan and Bradley
2 September 2017
As always, the best French carping experience for me! The lake looks more and more mature (3rd visit). Wish it wasn't such a long drive because otherwise I'd be here everyday!
26 August 2017
We have been here a week now, home tomorrow and had 30 degrees heat and freezing 9 degree down pours for 2 days, but enjoyed every second. Food is outstanding, venue is like fishing a little syndicate lake back in the U.K. Stunning with so many features a week isn't enough to explore them all. The owners Graham and Clare have been the perfect hosts. The accommodation is modern and spotless, like a home from home. The future is very bright for L'Angottiere and it's guests. Thank you for looking after us guys.
26 August 2017
A lovely picturesque lake awaits. The topography of the lake is feature filled and with 3 islands there is plenty to sink your teeth into as an angler . Graham (baliff )and Clare (the boss) are exceptional hosts. If your planning a trip get the food package its amazing the lakeside lodge is spotless has everything you need but the gite is also available which i might add is amazing as i went for a nosey and a definite if your bringing family which i do hope to do. See you guys again soon its been tough conditions with the weather but heading into the last night on 17 fish as a group of 3 anglers cant be bad.
19 August 2017
Up there with one of the best lakes in France for food, accommodation and fishing. Definitely coming back. Can't say a bad word about the holiday!
12 August 2017
Awesome! The place is lovely. We enjoyed our stay in the Gite also. We felt really welcomed and you were always on hand if we needed you. Thanks :)
22 July 2017
Thank you so much for a lovely week. We loved being able to walk into the village every morning for fresh bread and naughty pastries! Rob and Jon caught 4 fish each so shared the Kitty! Thank you for helping Linda celebrate her birthday with your wonderful Tarte Tartin and cake, and for your help with the missing trailer key!! Look forward to seeing you again. You have a lovely home and business which we will recommend to our friends.
15 July 2017
Have just returned from a fantastic week at L'Angottiere. Graham and Clare are fantastic hosts, and the effort they've put into the restoration and maintenance of the lake, grounds and accommodation is clear. The swims are nicely laid out, and the facilities are excellent. Simple touches such as having sealed bait and rubbish bins at every swim are great. Weigh stations, slings and cradles are also on hand.
Both the Lodge and the Gite are lovely and the cleanest carping accommodation we've stayed in. The food package is great value and should not be missed; breakfast delivered to your swim every morning and fantastic evening meals turned out night after night. We were a little unlucky with the fishing this week, but everyone still had a fantastic time and we're already booked for 2018.
8 July 2017
Superb facilities, excellent hosts in Graham and Clare. Lake surroundings stunning, definitely coming back. Thank you for a fantastic week.
1 July 2017
Just got home from our week here - Amazing. Clare and Graham were lovely hosts, stunning lake, fabulous looking fish and very nice accommodation if you didn't fancy your bivvy. Food package - Well what can I say, Claire should be on master chef. Too much food but couldn't leave it as was too nice and the presentation was fabulous. The week went too quick
24 June 2017
A good week spent on the lake, despite the changeable weather. All of the swims are well presented with ample room. Some lovely carp taken! Graham and Clare were excellent hosts and always available. Lovely Gite close to the lake which is nicely furnished and equipped. All in all a great holiday!
10 June 2017
Arrived back after a week at l'Angottiere. Well what can I say that hasn't already been said, this place is amazing, the gite is lovely, the lake and it's surroundings are stunning, it is a very peaceful place. The fishing was very hard, not sure if it was the weather which was very hot, we had 14 fish from 22lb up to 38.12, and a couple of PB's which is always nice. The swims are very well designed giving each fisherman a good area of water without crossing others lines. Graham and Clare are lovely, very welcoming and make you feel instantly at home, they go out of their way to make sure your stay is as pleasant as possible and will do what they can to help. We would definitely recommend this venue and are looking to return next year.
3 June 2017
Everything was amazing and beyond what me and dad thought it would be like. The carp were all in great condition and the fishing and lake were class. The food was amazing! We all. enjoyed it and it's better than what I get at home! Will defo recommend L'Angottiere to others. Both of you were great throughout the week and I can't thank you enough.
3 June 2017
We have always wanted to come to France carp fishing. This is our first time and I honestly couldn't have visited anywhere as nice as this. The fishing was excellent, the place is beautiful, the food was gorgeous and the owners are lovely and very attentive.
27 May 2017
Another fantastic holiday here at L'Angottiere. Once again Graham and Clare have smashed our expectations! The hospitality and food package are first class and we have never experienced anything even close to our stay here. The lake has matured so much over the last year and the fish have significantly grown. You can tell from the endless hours of hard work they put into the venue how passionate they are. It will be my number one venue for many years to come!
27 May 2017
Fantastic holiday. One of the best places I've been to. Graham and Clare, can't thank you enough. Second visit and keeps getting better. Gonna miss the food package! What can you say!!
20 May 2017
Clare and Graham are determined not to be intrusive but are available for advice if asked. By the way they know their Carp fishing.
A fantastic week had by all.
I look forward to sampling again excellent fishing, accommodation and not forgetting the food.
Hope to return soon.
20 May 2017
Just got back from L`Angottiere, Phil had a great induction to the carp fishing fraternity, the two biggest fish of the week and they were well deserved. Dam.! Clare & Graham may be the new kids on the block with this fishery but you would never know it, the lake is superbly prepared, the fish caught were all in excellent condition and fought like demons. The standard of accommodation is excellent, the food both in quality and presentation is unbelievably good, amazingly so considering the prices charged and the hosts take care of all your needs with great enthusiasm. Sadly there is one major flaw, at some point you have to leave. However I will certainly be returning to enjoy this venue again.
13 May 2017
Excellent! 5*! Loved it! Although it's your business we felt welcomed into your 'home'. Beautiful surroundings, great fishing and excellent food. Can't wait to come back. See you in July 17 and May 18. Sharon and Frank
