Just So Special

Just So Special

Mark and myself would just like to say a great big thankyou for making our stay in the Fisherman’s Cottage at your beautiful place so very special. The carp fishing was just wonderful and you are both two of the nicest people we have ever met….see you next year!

We Had An Amazing Week

We Had An Amazing Week

Highly recommended – we had an amazing week here! The carp fishing was fabulous and my husband Derek broke his PB more than once. The Fisherman’s Cottage accommodation was first class and the whole Moulin de Boutineau and grounds truly is a beautiful place. Our hosts were very welcoming and on hand should we need anything. We are returning in June 2021 with other family members.

Just a Perfect Place!

What a lovely week at Moulin de Boutineau. Can’t fault this place one bit; the owners Julian & Jude are excellent, always around if you need anything, but also give you your space. My kids all say it was the best holiday they’ve ever had. The Fisherman’s Cottage was immaculate and the carp fishing some of the best I’ve ever experienced as I ended up with a new PB. Anyone reading this and considering booking, don’t question it, just book, honestly the pictures don’t do it justice – it’s perfect and we’re back next year.

A Wonderful Week!

What a wonderful week at Moulin de Boutineau. Would highly recommend it, not only for obsessive carp fishermen like my husband Mark, but also for couples or families. As two fisherman's wives, we made the most of the pool area and hot tub in the most beautiful surrounding's. Julian and Jude are wonderful hosts, making you feel very welcome and serve food and wine to die for.

Best holiday of our lives!

Thank you both for your kindness and hospitality on our week at your amazing venue. The pool was refreshing, the jacuzzi relaxing, cottage so comfortable, and sharing the courtyard with others made for a magical atmosphere. The highlight for me was what I can only describe as the most beautiful lake I have ever come across in France. I have fished many of the big carp lakes in France, but this, for me, was what dreams are made of. Using my own bait first evening I landed a perfect 28lb mirror. The following day after I purchased Julian's own baits, things started to go through the roof. I only fished a few hours in the mornings and evenings but landed 27 fish including four thirties, totalling 613lbs 8oz. We also enjoyed walking through the orchards, across the grass field into private woods, and experiencing close-up a beautiful wild deer, just standing there as if to say, ‘well, do you want a picture then’?. Julian and Jude also served us the most amazing evening meal set in charming surroundings overlooking their garden. We just cannot thank them enough for making this the best holiday of our lives in such a beautiful part of France. Believe me, this place will not disappoint you or your friends or family.

See you again in May!

Julian and Jude thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and looking after us during our stay in the Fisherman’s cottage. You turned what was threatening to be a big carping disappointment elsewhere in France into a memorable trip. We had a great time with some top class carp fishing on the Moulin Lake. My regular carp fishing partner Mike is a bit “individual” but he works for me and clearly did for you too! See you again in May!

496lbs in the week!

Competitive stuff again here! Final day got off well with a 27lbs mirror which put me just 36lbs behind my one armed bandit husband (he somehow stuck a baiting needle in his hand! – thanks Julian for the hospital trip!). He then lands a 28lbs common - which put me definitely in second place. I did however land a lovely 30 plus to round off the week. Shame I couldn’t quite reclaim my Women’s LR, but total for the week. A: 266 lbs. J: 230 lbs. A fantastic 496lbs week of carp fishing – great food - and good company. Thank you again J and J and see you again next year. We have already booked!

A 34lbs Carp PB and 606lbs of fish!

The Gardener’s cottage was just right for the four of us....clean, and with a brilliant shower! Our 17 year old carp fishing son Tom was extremely happy - 606lbs of fish caught and a Personal Best Carp of 34lbs. All fish were in excellent condition & the wildlife around the lake & grounds gave us all great enjoyment, especially the red squirrels! The Moulin gardens and courtyard were a picture filled with beautiful flowers and plants. We sat on our terrace under the apple tree, reading, or cycled in to the lovely town of Loches. Each evening we barbecued or sampled Jude's delicious cooking, and Julian's superb wine. We loved the well-kept pool which was ten steps from our cottage, and very welcome in temperatures up to 34C. Julian & Jude warmly welcomed us, and gave us helpful information whenever we asked. We came away completely relaxed, and feeling we'd all had exactly the fortnight’s holiday we'd hoped for. Thank you!

We keep coming back time and again!

We've just come back from another lovely week at the Moulin. Once again, we didn't want to leave. Tranquility and indulgence - the combination of a fabulous carp fishing lake, pool, spa, comfortable accommodation, amazing food and lovely local wines will keep us coming back time and again. Not to mention our most wonderful hosts, Jude and Julian. Jude's cooking and Julian's wines are just sublime. We can't recommend this place highly enough, this was our third visit and it's definitely become our 'happy place'. Larry caught almost 500lb of carp over the week, many really lovely looking fish and a great challenge. We didn't beat his 40lbs PB caught here in 2014, but our return visit is already booked for next June as we reckon that must be a big one by now! Visit, it's such a special place.
