Beausoleil - French Carp & Cats


Region: Brittany


Venue description:

There can be few carp and catfish anglers in England or France who have not heard of the Millers Carp and Cat fishing lakes.

The lakes have attracted big-fish anglers, and their families, from all over Europe whose aim was to catch specimen fish in peaceful surroundings nestled in the most beautiful region of France.

We acquired Beausoleil from Tony and Lee Miller, and want to wish them and their families the very best for the future.

Beausoleil holds the key to top quality fishing and is stocked with commons, mirrors, grass carp and numerous catfish. There is first class accommodation at the venue as rightly expected by the travelling angler and his family.

We understand that not everyone will want to fish 24 hours a day 7 days a week, so the venue was specifically chosen to ensure that ALL members of the party have plenty to do and naturally, being in rural France, there is no shortage of exciting things to entertain them as well as beautiful places to visit.

Enjoy your visit to our site and feel free to browse around to see the quality carp and cat fishing holiday to suit you, and yours.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries regarding the lake, fishing or accommodation.

The Lake

Beausoleil is a quiet secluded lake set in the gentle rolling countryside of the Bretagne region of Northwest France, about one and a half hours drive from the port of St.Malo.

The fishing for carp and catfish is second to none.

You and your party (maximum 4 people) will have exclusive use of the private lake and house, and once you have closed the gates it really is a different world.

The estate type lake itself is set in 6 acres of lovely managed grounds and boasts a fantastic variety of wildlife including kingfishers and red squirrels which abound on the island and around the lake itself.

The 4 acre lake has depths from 2-6 feet with the shallows being spanned by a wooden footbridge over to the shady tree covered island.

Beausoleil contains an impressive stocking of Carp from 15 lbs to over 40 lbs, including at least 30 Carp over the 30lb barrier.

There are also 40 large Catfish from 25lbs to over 80 lbs, plus Grass Carp to 32lbs and 4 Sturgeon to 22lbs.

In December 2009 the lake was professionally netted and the vast majority of the small carp below 15lbs and catfish below 25lbs were removed. There are no bream, poisson chat or crayfish in the lake.

With a swim right in front of the house and others all around the lake it provides the perfect place for you and your party to fish in comfort, or if necessary move to where the fish are showing. The shallows at the top end of the lake are the ideal place for a little early morning or late evening stalking or fishing off the top.

There can be no doubt why this lovely lake continues to capture the hearts of many anglers and their families because they just keep coming back year after year. Once you have seen it you too will realise why.


The fully heated house overlooks the lake, which is only 25 yards away , through the large double french doors.

It has two bedrooms each containing two single beds, built-in wardrobe and a bedside cabinet. Bed linen is provided.

The open plan kitchen /dining / living room has all the mod cons necessary to make your stay stress free.

This includes cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, plus of course all the utensils, crockery and cutlery you need.

Off the lounge area is the bathroom with bath/shower, basin and toilet.

There is English television, a DVD player and a Video player for those wanting to take advantage of the number of supplied DVD’s and videos, plus there is also a hi-fi for your pleasure too.

We have a selection of books and magazines plus brochures of the surrounding area including local places of interest, fine restaurants and local events.

In a separate room at the end of the house there is a bait freezer and a washing machine.

Outside on the patio there is a garden table and four chairs and a small portable BBQ. Down by the lake, in the swim overlooked by the house, there is an A-frame picnic table.
