The landscape-gardener monks of the Absie Abbey created the 35 acres lake around the middle of the 14th Century. The sandy lake-bottom is uncluttered apart from just a few weed and reaches a depth of 3.5 m. Depending the swim, the depth varies from 50cm to 3m. The lake, with its 35 acres offers 14 swims, accommodating 2 anglers each, though you can fish alone, should you wish. The maximum number of anglers at one time is limited to 12, however, to guarantee comfortable room for everyone.
A large number (600) of carp are waiting for you! They comprise Mirrors and Common attaining a weight of more than 66 lbs. In winter 2018, an exceptional re-stocking took place, of around 200 carp between 22-55lbs. All this in order to make this the best complete angling experience and private domain in France. There are also sturgeon of up to 18kg (almost 40lbs) which will give you an incredible fight!
