Lac de Pierre Chatel is a 100 hectare/247 acre natural lake almost circular in shape. It is 1 kilometre/just over half of a mile long & 1 kilometre/just over half of a mile wide. It is the largest privately owned natural lake in France. The depth varies between 1 & 11 metres deep with an average depth of 6 metres. During the summer months a weed bed grows at about 100 metres/110 yards from the bank, this is an obvious fish holding area!  



Please arrive before midday on your day of arrival. The reception is located in an outbuilding of the castle. Here you will also find the facility centre with the toilets, showers, fridge, freezer and power points to allow you to charge your batteries etc. The bailiff will transport you and all your tackle etc to your chosen swim. 


Up until 2017 very few carp anglers have had the privilege of fishing here. A few lucky anglers have been allowed to fish in 2017 and the results have been very encouraging indeed with carp being caught in the mid 50s. In 2018 Carp Fishing Trips have the honour of being the sole UK booking agents.
