Cabin overview - owner's description

A Charming wooden chalet with a swimming pool and BBQ, all on the edge of a private fishing lake that contains carp up to 60lb and zander to 26lb.

Why not try a carp fishing holiday in France in the sunny Aquitaine region at Smallwater lake.

Available for weekly rents all year round including Christmas, new year & Easter.

Free and exclusive fishing in Smallwater lake when you rent the chalet or fishing lodge (a converted farmhouse barn).

Smallwater lake is the ideal private fishing venue to rent for your family carp fishing holiday in France ,

whether you are a group of friends fishing for the big crafty carp

day and night on the banks of the beautiful French carp fishing lake ,

or a family or couple looking for that secure and

idyllic retreat in the beautiful & rural French countryside,

we know your stay at Smallwater lake will be one of the most

enjoyable , peaceful , relaxing & fun holidays that you will ever have.

all on the outskirts of a very quiet & peacefull rural Landais village

10 minutes south of the old roman spa town of Dax.

This must be one of the best places for fun family holidays

even if you dont go fishing for free in the beautiful fishing lake.

You can go for a walk or ride a bicycle around the deserted country lanes

or just relax on your holiday by the 5 meter diameter round swimming pool

while the food cooks on the bbq.

(a beautiful market town renowned for its hot water springs and healing mud)

Couple from Exeter, United Kingdom Jun 2017

Me and my partner, loved our stay here, it was truly beautiful, peaceful and everything we hoped and more, the facilities were very good, everything you would ever need to get by for a week or more.

The fishing was a lot of fun, you have to get through the smaller ones, but all in all we got some fair size carp out of the lakes, was a lot of fun.

We would defiantly return here and highly recommend to others.

Rula was very helpful and friendly, and we loved the little visit each day from buster the dog who would come and say hi to us whilst chilling by the lake and chalet.

Thank you again Shane and rula, we loved every minute of it.

Tim & vicki :)

Family from Watford, United Kingdom May 2017

My son and i had a really nice relaxing time. the lakes are in a lovely setting. We fished for five days catching appx 40 fish of all sizes. although we did not catch the largest fish in the lake my son managed to catch one over 22 pound.
i would recommend this to anyone who is thinking of a relaxing trip/fishing or otherwise. Shane and Rula are very friendly couple and also the nice old dog buster greats you as you arrive.

Thank you for the kind words Paul, it was a pleasure having you both here and hope to see you again one day.

Couple from Fonsorbes, France May 2017

Perfect location, great course fishing (skimmers, bream, roach, black bass, small common carp as well as 3 good carp caught.
The only gripe was that the internet didn't work (connected, very strong signal but then just a "no internet connection" message on 2 i-pads and a laptop) and we couldn't get hold of the owners to sort it out. Apart from that it is superb.
Will be back.....

Reply from Shane

Hello John, thank you for the review, glad you enjoyed your stay & sorry that we were not about to reboot the wifi.
Look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Kind regards, Shane & Rula.

Friends from Southampton, United Kingdom Oct 2016

This was our second visit to Smallwater lakes and like the first visit we found it very enjoyable , peaceful , relaxing setting for a weeks break.
We rented the chalet and we're very pleased with it , it has everything you need for your holiday , if you cant find what you want then the owners Shane and Rula will go out of their way to get it for you .
Excellent / beautiful lakes where the fishing was good , although we didn't catch one of the larger fish this time it makes you want to go back and try again.
If your looking for a relaxing holiday with good fishing with lovely people then Smallwater lakes is the place for you.

Paul , Southampton.

17th Sept - 22nd Sept 2011 Thank you Shane and Rula for a wonderful relaxing week. We needed a break and you provided the perfect one with the chalet. The small details made it faultless, your kindness and attention made it very homely and special. Roo caught a 33 lb mirror carp & a 31 lb common carp and this was a lazy fisherman ! Really enjoyed it ! Will be back to try out the lodge, looks amazing !! and do some full on fishing ! We may leave the lake next time-but probably not, why would we want to ? :) Thanks again for an amazing peaceful break, Amy & Roo Buckinghamshire.

6th - 12 November A very very big than you to Shane, Rula and little Taylor for having me on my 21st birthday. I really enjoyed every second of every day. From the moment I arrived the fishing was great, much better than the UK. I came here to beat my pb carp and did that three times on the first day ( 21 lb common, 26 lb common, 27 lb common and then a 44 lb common all on my first day. Caught many more through out the week, the sun was shining and had a lovely time. The chalet was so nice and clean with nice rooms and great kitchen, very well equiped. Shane gave me some tips on fishing his lake and they worked a treat, I had many of the carp thanks to Shane, including my new pb :) I will be back in 2012 with my partner and baby for one of those fifties. BIG, BIG, BIG, THANK YOU :) Luke, Blackpool.

November 20th - 26th 2011 Shane, Rula & Taylor. Thanks for a very relaxing week. Fishing was great. Both myself and Adam beat our personal best. Thank you and hope to see you in May 2012 Gary & Adam Northampton.
