Etang Hirondelle offers a fishing holiday for all the family to enjoy, with all bookings including exclusive use of the lakeside villa with pool and the 4-acre lake. The venue is situated in the department of Mayenne, France just outside the village of Bonchamps-les-Craon. The town of Craon is just a five minute drive away and has a modern Supermarket for all your needs. Getting here couldn’t be easier, with Etang Hirondelle just under 2 hours from the port of St Malo and around 3 hours from the port at Caen.
The lake has depths up to 5 metres in places and comfortable grass banks to fish from. The quality of fishing available is at a very high standard, including a fantastic head of mirror, common and fully scaled carp up to and over 50 lbs as well as a plethora of coarse fish such as pike, perch and roach. This is complimented by a well managed stock of sturgeon.
A selection of just some of the beautiful fish at Etang Hirondelle are available to view in our photo gallery and as well as on our social media pages.
The lake and villa are set in stunning surroundings. The country walks are a must and catching a glimpse of the wild deer is simply amazing. The grounds around the lake are well maintained and laid to lawn, there are different specimens of trees which surround the lake giving it a character of its own. Outside the villa there is a terraced area overlooking the lake with table, chairs and barbecue. There is also a pool with sun loungers.
We are proud to offer exclusive carp fishing holidays in France since 2001, with Etang Hirondelle being our finest fishing venue to date.
