We left at the very end of last season and it was a joy to be back at the beginning of this season. It is always a delight to be here at Les Croix in the company of Jon, Lisa, Oscar and Bailey. Everything was as we expected, the gite immaculate, the quality of the fish caught superb and with Jon’s great knowledge and skill to guide you through. We have already booked our next year’s trip and will be looking forward to it from the moment we leave.

It’s always wonderful to come back to Les Croix and this 5th visit was no exception. We love the gite and the attention to detail with the welcome pack (nice Bordeaux, thank you). Good to see Jon Oscar and Bailey but very sorry we missed Lisa on this visit.
The fishing was a challenge but turned out to be exceptional right at the death with Emma turning up on Friday afternoon as my new PB to add to another lovely 50lb mirror. Caught on Monday was a couple of stockies.Already looking forward to September, many thanks.
Ray and Andy Hassall 28th April – 5th May
Our 9th year at Les Croix and as always a wonderful, relaxing time. Jon, Lisa and the dogs have looked after us superbly. The food was great, we passed the hot chilli test with Jon’s red hot chilli con carne on Saturday night ! It’s interesting to see how the environment has matured over the years with lots of trees and greenery now present on the angling bank. The first days fishing after heavy rain in the morning was a red letter day for Andy with three forties and a 57-10 common ! The middle part of the week with changeable conditions was slow but steady with 5 shared fish to 42-12. We were reluctant to pack away the gear on Friday, and Andy was rewarded with the best fish of the week, The Slate at 61-14 ! What a finish ! Re-booked for 2019 and 2020 !
Simon and Christina Brown 5th May – 12th May 2018
Our 3rd year to Les Croix, as always Jon, Lisa, Oscar and Bailey gave us a great welcome, the gite again was fantastic, the treat of the welcome hamper a nice touch. Christina had the bonus of a personal trainer thrown in as Lisa put her through early morning jogging sessions which she really enjoyed.
Now, the fishing......what looked like being a promising week, warm settled weather, I was hoping this would get the carp moving about. Unfortunately they started spawning, second earliest time ever here, anyway I stuck with it and on Wednesday morning with cloudier skies I had two in two hours, First Pawprint ar 50.08lbs followed by a very pretty scaled stockie at 14.11lbs (doesn’t matter how big when they look like that). As I write this they are still spawning, Bailey has had more luck finding and eating the pellets than the Carp!! Ha Ha. Still a very relaxing, lovely week. Thanks Jon and Lisa.

Mine and Dads first visit to Les Criox, Jon and Lisa were excellent hosts and the gite was amazing, very comfortable and everything you could want for a nice relaxing break away. The welcome hamper was unexpected and appreciated- thank you.
Now for the fishing, I wasn’t expecting too much as they were spawning the week before and some were still at it on arrival. However, with the change of weather Sunday bringing in cold winds and rain this soon put a stop to that. With Sunday bringing three fish to the bank, two commons at 24.16 & 31.12lb then Dad landed a chunk of a mirror at 58.12lb beating his PB by 22lb so he was chuffed. Unfortunately for him he only managed one more during the week on Wednesday 21.12lb mirror. As for me I had a bit more action with another seven fish during the week 3 x 40’s (46.04, 42.00, 46.08lb) 1 x 50 (51.08lb) 1 x 30 (31.08lb) and two at 10.14lb and 14.16lb. So in all 11 carp and 2 Pike.
Excellent time had and a great venue. Hope to return in the future.
