Le Moulin de Graffeuil
French Carp Fishing at its best
Welcome to Le Moulin de Graffeuil, a magnificent 9 and a half acre lake set in 81 acres of tranquil Limousin woodland. The perfect location for a carp fishing holiday in France.
Although newly opened in 2013 it has been 3 years in the making and every aspect of it has been developed to ensure that you have the best fishing holiday possible.
Based on a 60 year old lake which was originally a fish farm, we have now developed it into the perfect big carp fishery. We have 6 swims, each one capable of fishing between 2 and 4 acres of water. They are all on the south bank so no one fishes opposite you. They are all double swims so you can fish with or without your friends. They all have a 2 berth log cabin so there is no need to bring a bivvy. Each cabin is well equipped with bedchair, chair, table, landing net, weigh sling, unhooking cradle, scales with tripod and a bucket, so if you are driving you can travel light and get more people into each vehicle.
We do not believe in the concept of “Drive and Survive”. By all means drive but we want you to thrive not just survive. To ensure you do exactly that we have a range of facilities to allow you to package together the holiday that you want.
We specialise in catering for groups of serious carpers who want to catch big carp and to that end we have over 200 carp from 20lb through to 53lb, and growing fast. There are Mirrors, Commons, Leathers, Linears, Grassies and Koi. We had 167 new fish stocked in November 2012, none of which had ever seen a hook before. The pictures of our new stock can be found on the galleries page of our web-site, more detailed information can be found on our blog pages.
We also cater for families or groups of friends who want to combine angling with a more traditional holiday. Our Gite is stone built and fully central heated and accommodates 4 people comfortably. It has 2 twin rooms both with en-suite showers, a separate WC, a fully equipped kitchen with open plan dining room and lounge. In combination with the log cabins on the swims our accommodation is sufficient for almost any size group from 1 through to a dozen or so.
Additional facilities include; our well-equipped Gym, a large sun terrace, our new pool being installed in March 2013 (a must for keeping the kids happy), 4 stock ponds full of smaller fish which are perfect for introducing a beginner to the sport, and of course miles of tracks to simply walk and relax. There is also a small tackle and bait shop to meet your every need, with access to fridges and freezers.
We even do an all-inclusive package, we will collect you from the airport with just your luggage and we will do the rest.
If you require additional information about the fishery or any of our facilities then please do not hesitate to ask.
We look forward to meeting and greeting you to our fishery in the future.
Regards from your hosts, Tony and Helen.
