Carp Lakes in France with Accommodation and Swimming Pools

Venues with accommodation and swimming pools can make fantastic family holidays. Many of these lakes are located in central and south west France, in particular around the Limoges region, so benefit from the warmer weather. As well as having a private carp lake for your exclusive use, a number offer tackle hire and airport collection which can be a preferable option to taking the ferry and driving to the lake.

Drive and Survive Carp Fishing Lakes in France

We list over 40 drive and survive venues which can be hired for the exclusive use by your fishing party. Drive and survive lakes do not come with accommodation, so you will be fishing from the comfort of your bivvy for the duration of your trip. All of these lakes do have on-site facilities such as showers and toilets.

Non Exclusive Drive and Survive Carp Lakes in France

These are typically the larger carp waters and are usually booked on a per angler basis. As these venues are booked per angler, you may find that you are sharing the lake with others, making these lakes ideal if you are planning a trip on your own, but still want the social aspect of a fishing holiday. These lakes do not have accommodation so you will be fishing out of the bivvy.
