Forest View Lake is a stunning 6 acre lake with carp to over 80lbs, surrounded by 83 acres of woodland located in mid-south west France near Chateau Chervix. It can be hired exclusively for up to 5 anglers (4 if you are flying).

The views are nothing but breath taking and for the duration of your trip you can relax in absolute peace and tranquillity, surrounded by nature and good company (hopefully!).

Getting to the lake takes around 7 hours driving from Calais or 40 minutes from Limoges airport. If you are flying, an airport pick up service is available as well as tackle hire and bait.

The stock of fish in Forest View is very special with the largest resident a huge dark coloured mirror weighing over 85lbs! There’s plenty over other large fish too with at least 3 over 60lbs, and 11 over 50lbs and a huge average weight carp of over 40lbs.

There are 3 swims well positioned around the lake. Two of the swims are double and one single. Each swim comes with its own fisherman’s cabin so you have the choice to fish from your bivvy or call the cabin home for the week.

Given the lake is limited to 5 anglers, it ensures each angler has plenty of water coverage to position 3 rods. The double swims and cabins help to make this a great venue to visit with friends making it quite social. The lake depths range from around 3 feet in the shallowest area of the lake to around 11 feet at the deepest. The bottom consists of a mixture of gravel, sand and silt.

The lake is run by Daniel and Amelia who are the new owners as of 2017. Dan has been a keen fisherman for over 20 years having carp fished in both England and France. They will both be on hand to make your stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.
