Beautiful place. Very well maintained. Facilities are second to none. The bailiff is a lovely bloke very helpful. I found this place last year and have now been twice, I love the place. My latest visit blessed me with smashing my pb 3 times which were a 61lb 2oz common, 58lb 120z mirror and a 56lb mirror along with 40s, 30s and 20s. Special place and definitely worth checking out lake in a beautiful part of France.
