After our first visit 15 months ago we could not wait to get back to Les Croix. Facilities just as we remembered, perfect accommodation and
pristine lake. With some variable weather this week, frosty mornings and some warm afternoons, the fishing has been challenging, but more
enjoyable for it. An amazing average size of fish, with two PB's during the week. Thanks Jon.
Two weeks booked for next year - already looking forward to our next trip in May.
John and Julie, Shropshire UK 8th October 2016
Our 14th and 15th week here at Les Croix "our second home" we are lucky enough to be able to spend 3 weeks a year at this wonderful place which we call carp fishing heaven. A week in April is nice but a week is never long enough, so we always relish our fortnight here in September.
Another amazing trip with 25 immaculate carp caught. Unfortunately we had to go home two days early but we will look forward to our next
visit in April 2017 and our fortnight next September. Accommodation and lake perfect as usual...Jon's hospitality always spot on.
Ken and Rachel, Staffs UK 22nd September 2016
Thanks again for a wonderful holiday !!! Weather was hot so we took advantage of the pool 100% ! Our catch report was a little shorter
than last time, but we still did well with 6 fish including one of the biggest in the lake ! See you again soon.
Chris, Ramona, Angelina. Beds UK 3rd September 2016
Thanks again for another great relaxing holiday. Weather was very warm most of the time so the pool has been well used ! Even with the heat
we made the most of the evenings and a few cooler days and have done very well with 21 carp caught, just fishing a few hours per day, and
the week was made even better with the capture of a certain fish that I lost at the net last time ! Back again in 2017 - can't wait !
Mark Walker and family, Devon, UK. 27th August 2016
To Jon and Oscar, just a quick note to say thanks for a fantastic fortnight at our favourite place ! Our 8th consecutive year at Les Croix.
As always the gite and fishery in tip top condition had six fish can't complain with that, as the weather was reaching heights of
38 degrees in the shade. Once again a big thank you for all you've done for us and your offer to help us with our move to France !
Ian and Anne, Harlow, Essex UK 23rd July 2016
Thanks to Jon and Oscar for making our first trip to Les Croix such a relaxing and enjoyable time, fortunately for Lucy the temperature was around
30C for most of the week, although not the best fishing weather ! Must try harder next time ! Gite and food excellent (Jon could be a chef !)
Richard and Lucy, Lincs UK, 9th July 2016
OMG ! If Carlsberg did carp venues....what anyone visiting this place will find is outstanding accommodation and facilities. "Stunning" is an
understatement, Jon's attention to detail is something that he can be very proud of - a carp venue that I suspect is unsurpassed in the whole of France !
If we are lucky, then Jon will have us back every year until the Carp gods take me ! The fishing was tricky, but we have rebooked for 2017 and 2018.
Simon and Christina, Milton Keynes, Bucks. UK. 2nd July 2016
Our first visit to Les Croix and a fantastic time was had by all. Lee has fished in France many times, but now having visited this venue it has
become one of his firm favourites. The weather was very unsettled with heavy rain most of the week, but the fishing was excellent, all the carp
were beautiful specimens and in perfect condition. The gite was perfect, so clean and very well equipped. The kids had a great time exploring the
site and feeding the goats, not to mention daily visits from Oscar ! A great relaxing break with superb fishing.....will definitely be looking to book again.

Really enjoyed our second stay at Les Croix, weather changeable and fish still in spawning mode but Tony and Andrew still managed to catch
some lovely hard fighting fish. Gite perfect as last time. Food excellent. Host Jon welcoming and accommodating at all times. We will be back.
Tony, Shirley, Andrew, Norfolk UK 28th May 2016
First time at Les Croix, and as I drove in to the site I was not disappointed - what a stunning lake ! A very friendly welcome from Jon, and the gite
was very clean with a welcome pack supplied that was a very nice gesture and well appreciated. Despite the carp entering spawning mode,
I was fortunate enough to catch a new PB mirror. The menu/food package was spot on and cooked perfectly. Many thanks for your friendly
hospitality and lovely venue - we have enjoyed every relaxing minute of the holiday.
Roger and Julie, Bucks, UK 21st May 2016
Another fantastic week for our 7th visit here. Jon has continued to maintain a spotless gite, and a lake and surroundings in pristine condition.
He had lined up all our favourites for our evening meals, all very tasty after a hard days fishing ! The weather was unseasonably cool and wet
so we had plenty of hours tucked up in the bivvies out of the rain. The fishing this week was simply unbelievable.
Have booked for 2017 and 2018 can't wait, thanks Jon.
Ray and Andy, Hants UK. 14th May 2016
I'm almost too stunned to write this. Fishing week of a lifetime ! Our first visit but hopefully many more to follow. Absolutely the best managed,
most beautiful and well appointed angling venue I have experienced. There there is the fishing ... immaculately conditioned, hard fighting fish
the like of which you will not see elsewhere. I have been lucky enough to catch 19 specimens. Have re-booked for 2017.
Jim and Helen, Bristol, UK 7th May 2016
Our 13th week here, we have booked for 2017 and 2018 already ! The gite clean and welcoming as always, the welcome hamper a lovely bonus !
A difficult week of fishing due to cool weather - unusual for late April. 6 fish caught, all in immaculate condition. Thanks to Jon for his usual hospitality throughout our stay. Looking forward to September.
Ken and Rachel, Staffs UK. 30th April 2016
After fishing in France for 35 years, every now and then you come across a gem ! That's what you have here at Les Croix. Jon has been nothing
short of brilliant, it's obvious to us that he has a wealth of knowledge, not only in fisheries management, but also hospitality. The accommodation
and food package are both excellent. The fish are all in immaculate condition and this is due to the rules that Jon has made which are fair and
apt for the lake. We can't wait to be back and have already booked for 2017 and 2018.
Ray and Ian Porteus, Lancs. UK. 23rd April 2016
The holidays here soon come around, and soon pass ! We always look forward to fishing Les Croix. Jon greeeted us as usual with
a very warm welcome and always looks after us both during our stay. The gite was presented in immaculate order as per usual, and we
enjoyed a selection of great meals throughout the week all prepared by Jon. Every week's fishing is different here, and this week proved
to be our most challenging yet. Every sort of weather imaginable with plenty of rain, we tried all the regular spots but the fish were not
on the feed. A chat with Jon is always worth it and a few changes made a difference, in the end we managed five fish including one of
the big girls. Have booked another trip together in 2017 and I (Noel) will be back later this year.
