Family fishing holidays in France
Welcome to La Butte!
If you are looking for a family fishing holiday in France, then you have come to the right place. La Butte is a family friendly fishing lake with excellent accommodation. Set among acres of rolling meadow lands, leading down to the magnificent 2-acre private fishing lake, La Butte should be firmly placed at the top of your list if you need a family fishing holiday in France like never before! Stroll around the grounds – all 8 acres of them exclusively yours, or take one of the bikes for a ride into the village to discover the delights of a sleepy French backwater. With fantastic shopping, interesting museums, impressive golf courses and stunning scenery all around, we know you’re going to love the area as much as we do! However you choose to spend your time, we know that you’ll find something for all the family here at La Butte.
The lake at La Butte is man-made, carved from the clay and fed by three natural springs. Therefore, La Butte doesn’t suffer from the droughts that affect many other fisheries or fishing holidays in the area. The lake in turn feeds the local stream, ‘La Riverolle’ which has kept the village of Mouliherne supplied with water for centuries.
We have taken great care to prepare the lake for your enjoyment, as well as sport. In the late summer of 2006, major works were underaken to extend the banks, and deepen the waters. There are several swims – some natural, some created mechanically. All have been fished with success. See the gallery for pictures of the ones that didn’t get away!
You are welcome to bring your pets but you’re respectfully asked to clean up after them.
“This is an excellent venue. The accommodation is very good with everything you could need. The lake is a fabulous setting and the fishing is fantastic!!! As a first time fisherman, for me it was a great experience. Over the 7 days we fished, we caught over 120 fish, total weight well over 1000lbs. (beat that john wilson!!).four different types of carp, a suntan and good photos. A great time!! 16/4/11 Paul & John
Again thank you very much allowing us to share your wonderful home and we will hopefully try and visit again in the near future”. Martin and Keith 12th to 19th May 2012.
