What a fabulous week at one of the loveliest venues we have ever stayed at. The fishing was hectic with fish at all times of day.
Tried to fish nights but old age usually lucked in and I stopped around midnight.
Linda & Glen the perfect hosts.
Bouffetieres was good, but Etang Hirondelle is Brilliant!
Thanks for everything!!

Mccarthy Family's Comments and Catch Report: 5 - 12 April 2014

Thanks for a lovely weeks holiday. The Villa is beautiful and has a perfect layout for the children (ages 5 & 3) to come and go as they please. Fantastic fishing! Fished the house swim & fished to the margins & caught most of the fish there. Didn't fish all day and no night fishing. Don't be afraid to put the bait in, use the House pellet which switches the fish on.
Plenty of places to visit, recommend Refuge de l'arche...the kids love it! Try Meals on Reels, fantastic! Can't wait to visit again!
Shirley's fish just under 24lbs
3x30s Biggest 39lbs
11x20s Biggest 29lbs
10 original stock Biggest lbs......They put up a fight!
