Etang du Vaulaurent (France)


880 km from Utrecht

Etang du Vaularent is a beautiful lake of 29 acres in Brittany that’s worth traveling. Michel, the owner, keeps the domain very clean with the help of Frédéric (bailiff) who can speak very good English. The friendly Michel and Frédéric will make you feel home.

Any type of angler will be happy: back to basics or with more luxury of the chalets. Even wife and children are welcome: there is a family chalet to book. Do some sightseeing during the day with the family or visit Nantes and when back at the chalet it’s time to catch some nice carps.
The lake counts eight swims: two single swims and six double swims, with a maximum of eleven anglers.
Frédéric has a gardener background; he know’s how to take care of the trees and plants around the lake. Everything looks very well maintained.
At the 18th century the lake was made by the monks to grow fish. Several creeks come together at the lake and because of that the lake will get fresh water all the time.
The average depth is 2,5m. De soil mainly excists of sand with gravel. Only at swim one and two boats are allowed, but not inflatable boats (when the lake has been booked exclusively, all anglers may use a boat with electric motor). Boats are for rent and chalets are available at swim one and two as well.
