Hunters Retreat – French Carp Blog

Hunters Retreat is a 5 acre fishing lake in the Loire, 10 minutes away from the historical town of Chateaubriant and 4 Km from the picturesque village of St Aubin Des Chateaux which has all the amenities you will need, including a bar which does meals. It is also only 5 minutes to our local creperie / restaurant.

We (Pam and Mark) moved from the UK in 2001 and have set up a very successful self catering holiday home business with 2 cottages set in 17 acres of private land, which also has a small fishing lake with carp up to 20lb

plus perch, tench, roach, common, mirror, grass and Crucian carp

The lake was bought in 2004 and was completely emptied and de-silted. Mark being an avid angler he restocked it with mirror, common, grass and wild carp plus sturgeon, pike and black bass. The lake was reopened in 2009 and the lake record stands at a 44lb common carp (after 2 years it’s now possibly 47lb). It’s named Rocky by our first client who caught it, breaking his P.B. (pictured above).April 2011 Common Carp caught 45lb.3oz. All the fish are in pristine condition and are gaining weight all the time.

As a new venture the business was built on our reputation for quality and expertise to ensure you have a great holiday and want to return. Fishing is limited to 4 fishermen at a time to ensure the fish remain in good condition. You will also have exclusivity if you book the lake, so no-one else will be fishing alongside you. You will have complete solitude apart from the wildlife!

We look forward to seeing you at Hunters Retreat for your next holiday whether you’e a keen angler or just looking for a family holiday at an unbeatable price.
