Villefond is not a runs water; it’s a big fish water and the carp will test your angling skills, but the results are more than worth it.
The Specimen Lake Lauren is 3.2 acres in size and is home to carp up to 40lb and catfish up to 65lb.
The owners offer an optional food package here too.
One of the most attractive in Normandy, La Fonte is over 280 years old, dating back to the 17th Century.
An easy 1hr 40 drive from Caen and under 4 hours from Calais, if its runs action with hard fighting carp you are after, then this lake is definitely a candidate for your list.
La Fonte is ideal for 4 anglers sharing the 3 swims that span one side of the lake, two of the swims are good doubles and the third swim is slightly smaller, but can accommodate two anglers if required.
There are two distinctly separate sections in the form of two islands, each well spaced from the other and with a cabin – two anglers on each island will have as much room as they could wish for. A big bonus too – the lake is only 2hrs 45 from Calais!
