Old School Carp Fishing
2009 season feedback
We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived, Jon and Sophie are lovely and were very helpful throughout our stay. Nick fished 24/7
only stopping for meals and showers - he caught 16 carp, the biggest was 36lbs. The fishing was a little slow at times but improved during the week thanks to advice from Jon. Overall a lovely holiday, good weather, very relaxing and peaceful, the food was out of this world, every meal was
delicious - Sophie is a great cook !

If you want to relax - come here. If you want to fish like never before - fish here. If you want to eat 5 star food - eat here. If you want to wake
up to peaceful and beautiful scenery - you need to take your holiday here. Thank you for your hospitality, we are well rested, unforgettable
fishing and hope to be back.

A great holiday, 5th time carp fishing in France, the best venue we have been to by far. Everything about Les Croix was fantastic, nice lake, great
fishing, superb carp, the accommodation was the best we have seen and Jon and Sophie very helpful throughout our stay. Looking forward
to our return next spring.
Keith Scadden & family Taunton, Somerset, UK 19th September 2009
Although still in its infancy, Les Croix is undoubtedly one of the best family venues in France, with the growth rates of the quality fish stock it is
set to become one of the most sought after venues in France. Lovely accommodation with pool makes the venue perfect for taking the family to
France. 2010 will be a very interesting and popular year at Les Croix and should see a lot of big fish caught.
Keith Williams and Family Norwich, Norfolk, UK 29th August 2009
We had a fantastic time it was so relaxing as you know. Tom and I just totally chilled out. It was so relaxing and peaceful we did not venture out
except to go to Carrefour to top up on beer. The accommodation, lake and fish are first class. Yourself and Sophie made us feel so welcome.
Thanks for the welcome pack it was a nice touch. Taking all of this into account we highly recommend this venue for anglers, non anglers and family.
Hope to see you in 2010.
Tom and Angela Churchill, Kent UK 15th August 2009
Had a brilliant week, the gite was as advertised unlike some places we have stayed, the lake is stunning and with fishing to match. Took advantage
of the pool to cool down on those hot afternoons and enjoyed several walks in the lovely area when not fishing.The fish are in great condition and
it is refreshing to find someone who puts their welfare first. All this amounted to a fantastic week catching outstanding carp.
Chris and Shirley Powell, Hereford, Gloucs, UK 8th August 2009
We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Everything you need to make a perfect holiday. Location spectacular,
accommodation first class as advertised. Welcome pack is a nice touch with olives and wine included. Loved the power shower, made good
use of the pool - needed when the temperature reaches 30+. Brilliant fishing 31 fish including two forties - see you again next year.
Ian and Anne Wright, Harlow, Essex UK 18th July 2009
We all enjoyed a lovely holiday at a very well managed lake with owners that genuinely care, plenty of good quality fish and helpful advice from Jon.
The gite was exceptional - comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean, Sophie's welcome pack was much appreciated after the long journey.
We look forward to returning next year to see how this well run lake has developed.
Paul & Vicky Mumford/Brian & Lesley Thompson Sheffield UK 11th July 2009
Arrived to a very warm welcome from Jon, Sophie and Oscar. The gite was like a home from home - very comfortable with everything you need.
Made good use of the swimming pool, very welcome as the weather was very warm, high 20's every day. As a relative novice I was very grateful
for the advice and help from Jon, and the fishing was great - I broke my PB more times than I can remember and to top it all my last fish of the
week was a common of 42-14. Thank you both for looking after us and making us feel so welcome, hope to be back soon.
Steve and Sandra Wild, Worksop, Notts. UK 20/062009
We really enjoyed our stay and appreciate your help to enable us to get a few fish in the bank ! Sophies cooking is marvellous and we would
like to thank you for the extra few pounds we have gained ! We hope to see you again.
Peter Lindsell and Family South Wales , UK 30/05/2009
Our first visit to this venue, we were warmly greeted on arrival, and this set the theme for the week with Jon and Sophie pulling out all the stops to
make our stay enjoyable, nothing was too much trouble and the accommodation, food, service and fishing are faultless. Despite changeable weather
and spawning activity we caught 31 cracking carp, every one of them in immaculate condition and topped by a new PB common of 40-00 for Joe.
Will be back in the Autumn.
Joe and Cliff McVey, Montpellier, France 21/05/2009
We would like to say a big thank you to Jon and Sophie for a fantastic weeks holiday, the gite is comfy and fitted out excellently, a pleasure to stay in.
The fishing was also first class, I beat my PB twice in one morning ! The local area is clean, quiet and peaceful, we would not hesitate to recommend
Les Croix to fellow anglers, many of whom would enjoy the place as much as we did. Your obvious care and attention to everything should be well rewarded.
Steve and Kay Green Lincs, UK 25/04/09
Les Croix is like a second home for us - we really like the set up, the lake fishes really well during the daytime so we fish hard through the day and
relax in the gite at night. This trip was probably the best fishing trip we have ever had, we decided to fish and bait with boilies only, using 50kg of
Premier Baits Matrix during the week, and it really paid off with a fantastic catch of fish with two thirds being 20lb+
Chris and Paula, Milton Keynes, Bucks. UK 18/04/2009
A pleasant stay in a comfortable, warm, well equipped and very clean gite. Weather mixed (beginning of March) but superb fishing - 25 lovely carp with
Gavins first ever carp weighing 33lb . Home from home with a carp lake in the back garden !
