Carp Crossing Holidays

Chef de Ville (France)

Armenties en Brie

3 hours from Calais

At 3 hours drive from Calais you will find this peaceful Chef de Ville. This stunning lake of 27 acres counts 7 swims (of which 2 double swims), so enough space for every angler.

Kevin (owner) and Mark (bailif) are at your service day and night. Mark lives at the domain and knows all about the latest news of the lake; you can use his good advice. These two helpful men are doing their best to make all guests feel at home.

The stock of Chef de Ville is very good: the lake counts about 350 fish. Mirror-, common- and grass carp are swimming their rounds. With weights between the 19 and 61 lbs and grass carps up to 60 lbs the stock is very varied.
There are at least 20 carps of >50 lbs and many carps above 40 lbs. On a yearly basis a new stock is added to the lake.
There is some weed.

Behind swim 3 and 4 you will find the club house with a tackle shop. The sanitairy facilities are very good and are daily cleaned.
In the nearest village at about 5 minutes drive you can find a super market.
At both corners of the lake are two stalking swims (see below picture).
All swims are spacious and because of the size of the lake and the numbers of swims, there is enough space for every angler.

In the above mentioned tackle shop they sell end tackle, particles and boilies. The "Chef's Special" boilies turned out to be a big killer at this water.
You can book a food package deal for € 145,- extra per week. This package deal includes breakfast and diner.

A boat is for rent, but you need to bring your own life jacket. It is allowed to use a bait boat.
All swims are equipped with a unhooking mat and a weigh sling.
If you like, you can buy a day ticket to fish at river the Marne from the domain of Chef de Ville. Here you can catch barbel, cat fish and of course carp.

Sleeping in the own brought bivvy only.
