We stayed for two nights at the end of a week away to France. Upon arrival stress melted away with a walk by the stream and a gentle town across a fantastic carp lake. The scenery is beautiful and Josie and Allan provided everything we might have needed. Really wished we would have had more time there and will absolutely be returning to this sanctuary that they have built together.
Four of us stayed for the week.the accommodation for more than spacious enough with 2 good sized bedrooms.large lounge dinner.
Breakfast on the balcony was lovely.
The carp were hungry and hard fighting.
Watching the swallows drink from the lake in there dozens was lovely.
Great hosts all ways ready to give information but never intrusive.
Our second visit. Lovely gite in idyllic surroundings. The lake is full of carp...even a novice angler will catch. Plenty of places of interest within driving distance and several good restaurants nearby. The owners, Josie and Allan are a really lovely couple and cannot do enough for you. Highly recommended.
What a fantastic week!
Allan & Josie made us feel most welcome from the moment we arrived to the moment we left... whilst we were left in peace throughout the week they were on hand if needed.
The local villages, restaurants and market towns are all worth visiting.
Fishing was brilliant, probably the best we have ever had... 76 carp landed between the two of us (biggest 21lb)
Lovely Gite with all the facilities you could/would need.
Our first visit to La Chatouillette and hopefully not our last!
Until next time...

The minute arrive at La Chatouillette you feel totally chilled and welcome. Alan and Josie take time to explain all the facilities and features of the gite then leave you to explore and enjoy. The accommodation is both spacious and well presented. The extensive grounds, with the woods and the river are a delight with a myriad of flora and fauna. More than ample space for all the family to indulge. For the carp angler, there is a lake of dreams............we managed over 60 quality mirrors and commons in our week without needing to night-fish at all. Most well high doubles and plenty of 20lb+. Simple hair-rig tactics and nothing over-complicated, We will be back sometime and would highly recommend to those needing some peace and calm from day one of their holiday. Thank you Alan & Josie
