Fishing at the Brittany holiday cottage / gite
Brittany offers some fantastic fishing be it,game, coarse or sea and La Veille Maison is ideally situated for you to enjoy all types.
Apart from the river Tarun with its run of wild trout just 100 meters from the cottage and the river Blavet which is renowned throughout France as a great Carp river and in 2006 was voted best course river in France, i have just found a lovely 2 acre lake just 5 minutes drive from the property. Its privately owned so no fishing license needed and is stocked with Carp, Bream,Roach,Pike,Perch and Zander.Most often or not you will have the sole use of the lake and its heavily stocked so a great place to fish yourself or to teach your children. I have also located some wonderful places to sea fish from the beach and will be happy to advise of where the Bass,Sea Bream or Eels run. Tide tables can be provided during your stay and a rod and reel are available if you fancy a try on the Tarun or a beach caster for shore fishing.I have just started a blog on life in Brittany and will post fishing reports during the year.
If you are looking to do some serious fishing during your stay please contact me for advice on obtaining bait and tackle before the start of your holiday at the cottage.
