This is our 4th visit and wouldn't come anywhere else ! Our second home. Etang Hirondelle is an amazing place and its a privilege to be allowed to come, relax and catch fish.
Fishing days and into the early hours (Pellet & maize from Glen is excellent) Weather warm 34° first week and even hotter the second week !
We caught 37 fish - PB for Tracey , A whopping 45lbs 2ozs, PB previous 33lbs & PB Common carp 30lbs 2ozs !
For me 32lbs Mirror as well as a lovely Crician amoungst others.
No visit is not complete until you've caught a Sturgeon, one of our last fish of our holiday.
The plunge pool is a must on hot days.
All the animals are gorgeous, the baby chickens and of course the donkeys love visits.
Thank you Linda for our Sunday Roast and Fish n chips , lovely .
Never want to leave ! Booked already for next year & for 2019 for more memories to happen - An amazing fortnight !

First time at Etang Hirondelle and what a fabulous, beautiful lake !
The lake is stunning, the cottage far exceeded our expectations and the facilities were spot on. Glen keeps the lake pristine. This venue is so peaceful and tranquil with an abundance of wildlife.
Fishing was challenging with the weather topping 30°c everyday and day time was to hot to fish. The pool was great and a welcome relief from the heat.
Despite the weather we still caught some great fish, concentrating on lake in the evenings through to the morning. Glen's pellet and maize made a difference, in total 20 fish caught, 11 Commons biggest 20lbs 8ozs.... 5 Mirrors biggest was 30lbs 8ozs, 3 Sturgeon biggest 20lbs, we had never caught a sturgeon before, what a fight they give ! Stunning Grass carp 24.5lbs they go mental!
We will definitily be back.

We have been "fishing with the Millers" for many years, this is our 4th visit to Etang Hirondelle. This time we stayed for two weeks. This is such a beautiful place, the angling is amazing and the lake perfect. The villa is full of charm and we love it !
Linda's "Meals on Reels" are fantastic and very welcome at the end of a fabulous day.
The weather this visit has been hot so sunning by the pool has been an added bonus.
Fish wise........To many to count. Most of the fish were caught in the evenings due to the incredible weather? Best 3x 30LBS+, 10x 20lbs+, 4x 19lbs+ Sturgeons plus original stock. Using Glen's House Pellet and Maize works a treat.
Glen & Linda are wonderful people, perfect hosts and have given us loads of incredible memories from our holidays, thankd you just doesn't seem to be enough.......Can't wait till our return.

It was great to see Maggie & Derek Stritton this week.....Here are their comments, photos to follow:
21 - 27 May
As always we had a great time. The combination of very hot weather and post spawning mean't the fish didn't come out to paly as much as usual and only fishing days. Never the less we still had carp up to 31lbs, Sturgeon up to 21lbs.
Thanks for the dinners, Excellent as always.
See you again in September.
