A specimen fishing paradise exclusively yours

Beausoleil is a fishing paradise for carp anglers that are looking for an exclusive and private carp lake in France that provides fabulous fishing. With tree lined margins, an island and plenty of features, it will give the thinking angler a perfect balance of challenge and enjoyment. The excitement we see on our visitors’ faces when they arrive, whether it’s the first time they drive through the gates or the tenth, tells us all we need to know: this is a special place to fish.

There's something about the place that just oozes big fish and gets you hooked from the first take.

Picture your dream estate lake in France

A private, exclusive and beautiful carp lake full of features. Margins richly populated with iris and reed, trees carrying foliage that delicately hangs over a mirrored surface. Look carefully and you’ll see the telltale signs of feeding carp, tiny bubbles punctuating the surface. A slow walk along the tree lined margins reveals water rocking gently in response to the movement of a carp below. A massive catfish tail unfurls majestically from below and smashes down hard, scattering fry in an explosion of spray. Welcome to your French carp fishing holiday at Beausoleil.

A stunning four acre carp lake

A 60-year old estate lake, Beausoleil is a private French carp lake that can only be booked by one group at any time. Your booking will consist of exclusive fishing on the 4 acre lake and use of the two bedroom accommodation and all of the facilities.

● Lake suitable for up to 4 anglers
● Located in North West France
● Exclusive to you and your friends/family
● With luxury lakeside accommodation

A rich mix of specimen carp and catfish

Over 60 years old, Beausoleil is picture perfect. At four acres and holding both specimen carp to 48lbs and several 100lbs+ catfish, this exclusive lake is a fascinating water to fish. Carp range from scale perfect commons, through to heavily scaled mirrors and nude leathers. Every specimen is unique.

Brimming with features, including an island, it provides experienced anglers with loads to go at while not being too daunting for the less experienced angler. To get you off to a fast start and get to know the intricacies of the venue, make sure you book our carp fishing tuition.

Your own private carp lake for the week

Beausoleil is an exclusive carp lake so you don’t have to share the lake or the luxury lodge with anyone else. As we do not live on site, your privacy is guaranteed. It’s perfect for fishing couples or groups of up to 4 anglers.

At four acres, the lake will comfortably accommodate up to four anglers, offering the opportunity to move around and change swims if you are looking for a change of scenery. If you’re not used to fishing French lakes with both carp and cats, there are tactics you can use to tilt the odds in your favour.

A fascinating lake to fish

The lake is both stream fed and spring fed, keeping oxygen levels high and catch rates consistent. The lake bed consists of a mixture of silt, clay and gravel.

Within each swim you will find loads of interesting features to target such as gravel bars, marginal shelves, and silt and clay pockets. There is very little in the way of weed growth to worry about which makes rig presentation easier. The fish see angling pressure from March until November, so if you’re not used to fishing pressured carp in a small lake, I’ll be on hand to help and advise.

Spacious and comfortable swims

Casting distances are relatively short with 70 yards maximum required. All the swims are very large. Even with a two man bivvy plus cook tent, you will still have loads of room for playing, weighing and photographing fish.

The swims are log lined and gravelled so they remain mud free year round. Standard bivvy pegs are all that is required to nail everything down securely.

A stalker’s paradise

During the summer season, Beausoleil is one of the best small private lakes in France for stalking. There are hundreds of meters of tree lined margins to explore and a large island which is easily accessed via a foot bridge. A number of specimen carp in excess of 30lbs have been banked, the largest being 38lbs.

The best tactic is simply to creep onto the island with a rod and a landing net and very carefully lower a simple bottom bait rig in front of a big carp sitting inches below the surface.

Fell in love with the place

Absolutely fell in love with this place. From the moment we arrived it was apparent that this is a little piece of heaven. Swims are amazing, the house has everything you need, Matt is on hand to answer any questions and remove the doubt any angler suffers when arriving at a new venue. The facilities are second to none and the fish are stunning, the care they put into Beausoleil really shows.

A magical place

What a magical place. Just back from my second visit and it certainly won’t be my last. Brilliant fishing, brilliant venue and brilliant hosts. One of our party had a tutorial with Matt and it turned his fishing around. Matt and Irene’s attention to detail is second to none to make your holiday the best it can be. Thanks again from us all Tony, Dean, Alex & Wayne. Highly recommend.

You won’t be disappointed!

Our group has fished there three times in different combinations and had great trips each time. The stock of fish is excellent with carp pushing near 50lb and cats to near 120lb now. This is not an ‘easy’ French water and work is required to get the best from it. Matt loves his fishing and this comes over in the care and attention the lake and visitors receive. All I can say is get your name down as it fills up fast and you won’t be disappointed!
