Chef de Ville is a 27 acre lake situated near the village of Armentieres-en-Brie just 3 hours drive from Calais and 3 hours 50 minutes from Caen.
Chef de Ville offically opened to customers yesterday,(09/04/2017) and the first fish of the season was this magnificent 37lb 4ozs common. Happy days
Chef de Ville has just 8 swims with fishing allowed from just 1 bank with the exception of swim 8. There are also 2 stalking areas that the anglers in swim 1 and swim 7 can use.
There are 3 buildings on the lake. 1 is the bailiffs lodge, 2 is the showers and toilets & the 3rd is the cooking and dining area.
Chef de Ville has a tree lined margin on the far bank and with the river Marne just behind, so if you fancy a go on the river this can also be arranged for a small licence fee.
