    Any help greatly appreciated.

    I have pursuaded wy wife to spend 2 weeks in France next year. We have agreed to go to a lake with a cottage and to take another couple along.

    Has anybody any ideas of a place which ticks as many of the following boxes as possible:

    Half decent accomodation
    Lake which can be booked completely
    Pretty location
    Shops nearby
    Carp to be caught

    Thanks a lot in advance to anyone who has any ideas.

    Hi blunderer,

    example below:

    I have used bargaingites site before and found it very good. Loads of gites all over France at good prices. Pick the area you like then do a ctrl + F search for the word "lake" (makes selecting a bit quicker).

    Hope you can find a good one.

    Go onto The Mail website and see if you can find their article from the Travel Section. Last week, I think, was a piece about something similar. This concentrated on the Champagne region.

    La Queroy.

    not the cheapest but probably the best.

    Accommodation stunning.

    Lake private

    Loads of 20's, 30's and 40's

    village with restaurant and bars nearby

    3 double rooms

    rods and tackle can be left by the lake when not fishing as the place is totally private.

    The best (carp) holiday venue I've been to bar none.

    Blunderer - If you do book it, or your considering booking it, drop me a private mail and I'll give you as much info if you want.

    Bully - It was a family holiday and I'd rather fish for carp than not at all !

    But seriously, I've said before, I don't have a problem with carp. It's the indiscriminate clamour to stock them everywhere that I'm totally against.
