Carp fishing holidays in Creuse - France

With a lifelong interest in fishing, Etang de Azat-Chatenet fishery was set up in 2004 after moving from England to this wonderfully peaceful fishing lake with accommodation in the Creuse area of France. If you are looking to fish somewhere a bit special in France surrounded by beautiful countryside and views then this could be the French carp fishing holiday for you.

Many of our customers are regular visitors who enjoy coming to fish here year after year, some visiting more frequently and others often monthly on day tickets if they are based in France. Fishing here is relaxed and friendly; ideal for exclusive fishing groups, single anglers and family fishing holidays in France. You will be safe on a secure site with 24 hour assistance and tuition with angling if required. There is also a small tackle and bait shop on site, with some items available to hire.

“Can't recommend Etang de Azat-Chatenet enough...
...my dad has fished there all day today and has really enjoyed the experience. James' knowledge, experience and help is incredible. The facilities are 5* along with the setting. It is so peaceful and tranquil. The lake is very well stocked and kept to a very high standard. There is a beautiful gîte that you can rent for holidays too. Dad will definitely be a regular visitor.”
