Message From The Seller

“Here, we have to offer, a fully compliant and registered carp fishing lake & extremely lucrative business, accompanied with buildings etc., nestled in the heart of Basse-Normandy, set in approximately 7.5 acres of grounds. Located in the heart of rolling hills & beautiful countryside provides peace & tranquility which reflects on what makes this a extremely popular holiday venue. Situated within 60 minutes from Caen ferry port provides the perfect location to the predominantly uk based angling market. 

The lake itself, spring fed with multiple feeds providing a constant supply of water throughout the year has been extensively transformed over the last 6 years to bring it to where it is today. Surrounded in mature trees gives it that English estate lake feel & provides a piece of heaven to all who holiday here, hence resulting in being fully booked for 2024 & the foreseeable future. 

Fish stock being a mixture of commons & mirrors is included within the sale, consisting of around 110 pieces, boasting a number of fish over 40lb to mid 50lb plus with the lake record currently at over 60lb, all in pristine health & condition. Approximate value for total stock is estimated at around €75,000.

Included within the sale will be all the necessary equipment to maintain the business – grounds like lawn mowers, tractor-trailer, wood chipper, chainsaws, chest freezers etc.  A full inventory will be produced within the sale agreement”.
