This was my 3rd visit and best to date! It really is paradise, just cut your ties from your normal constraints. I removed my watch and turned my phone off. I fished when they were biting and slept when it was dark - Simple!! Allan and Josie were the best hosts and are always so welcoming. Thank you so much. BTW personal best carp of 27lb!!
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...
