Fishing at Aquitaine Gites in France

In 2010 we improved both our fishing point and access to it. We now have a 6m decked fishing area at the end of our landscaped gardens, accessed via a security gate, which provides private riverside fishing for our guests.

In 2011 we bought a 3.2 meter boat with 55lb Minn Kota electric motor and marine battery, suitable for 2 to fish from, available for allotted periods of the day and all night via a booking system that gives everyone a chance to use the boat if they wish.

There is a large variety of fish to catch from our fishing point including Zander, Pike, Black Bass, Carp, Bream, Chub, Perch, Roach, Tench, Gudgeon and Barbel, with all year fishing for certain species.
