FE suggested I might let you all know what it was like, well it was absolutely great for me and my wife. Quiet but with lots to do, I can recommend that part of France the countryside is beautifully fresh and lush, the roads are virtually empty, and the locals friendly. We went walking, got lost and met a guy from Essex who had bought a Château and 350 acres of land on which we were lost. Fished for the biggest carp I have seen with moderate success,while watching Kingfishers and seeing the odd otter. Lovely Medieval towns to visit in the area all worth visiting and the owners of the gite in which we stayed were really welcoming and made our stay perfect. The only fly in the ointment was when we were out we got caught in the most violent storm I have ever seen (I have seen quite a few I used to live in the Blue Mountains NSW)Just managed to get the car back after getting stuck in a mud slide with fallen trees all around. We were rescued within 15 minutes by a Frenchman and his buddy with a chainsaw and a lot of muscle. Still that is what makes memorable holidays!!!
The best I caught was about 9lbs but there were really big ones there, I was told the biggest caught was 26lbs. There were also Chubb and Barbel. No my wife didn't mind although I only went for 2 or 3 hours about 3 times, the gite had all the equipment, and the walk to the fishing was about 100m
Enjoy, but watch the SatNav carefully. Ours took us to a dead end miles from anywhere and I had to back up a long way to turn round. I have found the instruction "Turn Right" or "Turn Left" can be misleading if the road happens to naturally bend that way at a small junction, which is what happened to us but then we were out in the sticks!
