 Les Basses Berthieres offers carp fishing holidays for up to four anglers with exclusive use of the lake and cottage which is furnished to a very high standard and sleeps 6 people.  The cottage has a secure private garden so is ideal for small children and dogs.  If you don't fish and just want a relaxing break in France, please see our prices for the house only.

Les Basses Berthieres is a perfect destination for anglers of all abilities, whether it is your first fishing trip to France or you are an experienced angler looking for that elusive large fish. The lake is well stocked with fish up to 52lbs and allows for a maximum of 4 anglers, so theres plenty of room for the wives to come along and relax in the french countryside and sample the wine!! This beautiful lake is approx 3 acres and up to 11ft deep in places and is set in 10 acres of private land located in the peaceful french countryside.

We are situated in the Pays de la Loire region of France in the department of Mayenne.  Chateau Gontier is just over 3 miles away and is situated on the river Mayenne. Chateau Gontier is an ancient town with many historic buildings, churches and walks along the river.  The river can be be fished subject to obtaining a licence.  Boats, cycles and canoes can be hired on the river and horse riding can be arranged for those in the party who do not intend to fish.  All major supermarkets can be found in the town and several little boutiques sited around the picturesque town square which has a market every Thursday morning. The town also has a rescue zoo/sanctuary - the only one in France to rescue wild animals - and is open to the public all year. .

Well behaved dogs are welcome but please be aware that we have small dogs of our own along with cats, chickens and horses so we would ask that they are kept under control at all times.

Alan and Jill live on site in a separate house so will be on hand to help if needed but hope that you just enjoy your stay with us.

Please take a tour of the site and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
