La Germondiere camping

What's the hurry? Why not relax for a couple of days and enjoy the fishing and peaceful environment?

La Germondiere lake

Two spring fed lakes set in mature gardens

We have two spring fed fishing lakes at La Germondière (1.5 acres and 3 acres) set in mature gardens of 2.5 hectares.

Water in a spring fed lake is healthy for the fish, the water constantly changing fools the fish into thinking they are in a bigger lake, thereby encouraging growth. The natural spring sources are also better for the angler, as our water levels never run low in extremely dry conditions. A waterfall takes excess water from the top, smaller lake into the larger bottom lake, keeping a constant gentle flow-through all year round, and helping with the oxygen levels in all weather conditions.

Our lakes are stocked with carp, tench, roach, bream, pike and zander. Fishing our lakes is free when you spend your holidays at La Germondière.

From float fishing to carp fishing - either lake will give you a good day's catch.

The smaller lake is stocked with a good variety of fish, including carp up to 6 lbs - an ideal lake for children, or the less-experienced angler. There are also areas suitable for disabled fishing.

The larger lake is for the more experienced angler. There are some ideal spots to fish this lake, including a newly constructed jetty set amongst the aquatic grasses.

The largest catch to date is a stunning 26lb 10oz mirror carp.

Our lakes and gardens provide you with a truly relaxing environment even if you do not want to fish. There are an abundance of tranquil places to just sit and relax, in sun or shade. We supply a picnic blanket in the gîte, we hope you will use it.
