We have two 4 acre lakes here at Windmill offering “the best of both worlds”! A specimen Carp lake with a current lake record of 54lb 4oz and the Cat lake which has hundreds of Carp to 30lbs plus Cats to 120lbs making it a real runs water.
We are based deep in the heart of the Loire Valley between the historical cities of Laval and Le Mans, just 2½ to 4 ½ hours from the ports of Caen and Calais.
The lakes were dug approximately 25 years ago and are surrounded by a plantation of Poplar trees, completely secluded from outside distractions. We have no roads, trains or industrial units anywhere near the lakes, so apart from the occasional tractor there is total peace and tranquility.
We’ve had another wonderful season here at Windmill with several groups returning for a second, third or even 10th time. It’s always lovely to welcome people back it makes us feel like we are getting something right.
The fishing has been tough this year with the longest we’ve ever been without rain, from April to October, thank goodness it’s finally arrived but we need some real downpours to fill the lakes again.
Despite the lack of rain there has been consistant catches throughout the year….
We are booking up for 2019 and have a few weeks left in June and September for more info please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re looking forward to welcoming you back next year….
