We know how important and precious your holiday time is, so here at Martins' Lakes we try to be as flexible as possible and offer you the best choice of carp fishing holiday in France.
We are located in the Dordogne region of France and have three lakes set in 80 acres of beautiful countryside. There is a 3 bedroom holiday cottage (gite) which sleeps 6 people and has fantastic views down over the fishing lake from the swiming pool. Free coarse fishing is included with your booking.
There is also the 7 acre Specimen carp lake for which either individual places are available, or you can book the whole lake for your own exclusive use. It is stocked with French common carp, mirror carp, grass carp, koi carp as well as big cat fish and black fish up to 82lb
For a really perfect carp fishing holiday you can book both the gite and Specimen lake together at a substantially discounted rate.
Jungle Lake is an idyllic retreat for anyone wanting to get away from it all for a while. It's a beautiful and secluded holiday setting even if you are not really into carp fishing. The caravan provides superb lake-side accommodation.
We are not exclusively aimed at fishing holidays, there are plenty of other things to do and see in this area of France. We are in the heart of the Perigord region which is renowned for its good food, wine and excellent French markets; surrounded by vineyards, châteaux and historical towns such as St Emilion, Bergerac, Perigueux, Bordeaux etc. On the other hand, you may want to come just to enjoy the lovely surroundings and take advantage of the peace and quiet in which to have a very secluded and relaxing holiday in the south west of France.
From the gite there are stunning views down over the 1½ acre coarse fishing lake which is well stocked with carp (up to 21lbs), tench, bream, roach etc. Free fishing in the coarse lake is included with your booking.
The gite has 3 bedrooms (2 bedrooms have double beds and one bedroom has 2 single beds). The master bedroom is en-suite (toilet, basin, shower) and there is another separate bathroom with toilet, basin & shower.
The fully fitted kitchen is well stocked with everything you may need and overlooks the open-plan dining/sitting room which also benefits from the beautiful views down the field to the lake.
There are French doors from the sitting area to the large, covered terrace which has table & chairs, sun-loungers (with cushions) and a large, purpose-built barbeque.
There is also a 25ft pool which is perfect for cooling off in and enjoying the landscape.
The gite has UK satellite TV, a DVD player and WiFi internet connection. A PlayStation 3 is also available on request.
When you arrive you will find the gite perfectly prepared for your holiday. The beds will be made, bath and hand towels are provided for use in the property, as are kitchen and tea towels. We also try to supply all the basics you don't want to have to buy just for a week or two of holiday, such as hand wash, new kitchen cloths, washing up liquid, cling film, foil etc. The only extra thing we ask you to bring are swimming or beach towels, if required.
