Superb food, great facilities and unique, lovely accommodation in the Bread Oven cottage! Add in wonderful hours of carp fishing on the Moulin Lake and a new PB 38lbs mirror, what more could anyone ask for! Thanks J&J for a fantastic break! Carp watch out, I will be back!!

Two best-ever holidays!

Just have to say that now two of our best ever holidays (2013 & 2014) have been spent here at the Moulin! Beautiful place, wonderful carp fishing on the lake and you are both lovely hosts!

Another outstanding holiday!

Thank you so much Julian and Jude for another fantastic week carp fishing at Moulin de Boutineau. This was our second visit. The first time we stayed in the wonderful Gardener’s cottage, but this time opted for the larger Fisherman's cottage due to our bigger group. The lake, the cottage, the pool, the location - all them are simply wonderful. Jude's cooking is simply to die for. Anything she cooks is sprinkled with magic and tastes superb. Julian also has an eye for excellent local wines, so make sure you sample a bottle or two whilst you are there. In summary – great lake & carp fishing, fantastic location, wonderful hosts, brilliant holiday.

Fabulous carp fishing!

We love this beautiful place! Fabulous carp fishing in an idyllic setting. Back here again for a third visit, Darren set a new lake record with his stunning 40.8lbs mirror! Julian & Jude are the best hosts ever. We will hopefully get back again very soon!

A perfect family holiday!

Thanks so much for a super holiday! You have an idyllic place at the Moulin and it made for the perfect family holiday with excellent carp fishing as well....and the three of us out on the lake just loved fishing with the chance of landing a real ‘once in a lifetime’ carp. Jude's cooking is also out of this world! We would certainly love to return in the future and will definitely recommend you to friends and colleagues.

Go – it’s all just beautiful

Go to the Moulin Lake carp fishing – it’s all just beautiful – I clocked a new PB mirror of 39lbs plus as well as several other beauties and I can absolutely promise you won’t regret a single day!

The best looking fish I’ve seen in 30 years

If you are looking for a holiday with great accommodation, picturesque surroundings, heated swimming pool and beautiful carp lake then look no more. This is as far away from pitch and fish as you could imagine. We stayed in the Fisherman’s cottage. Moulin de Boutineau offers a high standard of accommodation for couples, small groups and families. Set within stunning countryside and beautiful grounds this is truly a place to get away from it all. The location is just a stone’s throw from Loches, a beautiful old medieval town with great facilities and restaurants. The drive from Caen is only 3 hours or so. There is plenty for the family to do together, including the beautiful chateaux of the Loire Valley region. Then there is the Moulin Lake. If you want relaxed carp fishing in France with the opportunity to catch fish up to 40lb on a small private lake, then this is a must. The lake has only five swims with plenty of scope for everyone to catch. The lake is also extremely picturesque, tree lined and with a number of great weeping willows. The carp seem to move around quite a lot so wherever you are you will get a chance to catch. The stocking policy and care that has been taken to ensure the angler can enjoy the experience to the maximum is extremely well thought through. This is not your typical commercial carp water - over stocked with pressured fish. Rather this is a lake full of high quality carp, well cared for and offering a real challenge to the angler. What’s more, on the bank they are amongst some of the best looking fish I have seen in over 30 years of fishing. Beautiful colouring, perfect markings and no damage. It’s like being transported back in time to the days when carp fishing was magical, when every fish meant something. What you will find with the whole set-up here is the attention to detail and that includes the bait on offer. The majority of places I have visited which offer their own bait supply an over-priced, sub-standard bait. The quality of the Moulin Rouge boilies, cooked hemp and pellets is excellent and I would not hesitate in recommending you use it. My tally amounted to 20 fish including two over 30lbs. I enjoyed a tremendous week here and will definitely be back for more of Moulin de Boutineau’s magic.

Such a special week!

Just wanted to thank you and Jude for such a special week! Amanda and I have not stopped going on about your place since we’ve been back, I already have some potential carp fishing friends lined up to join us when we come back next year. As promised I attach some of my carp pictures and I expect to see one of that big 30 plus mirror up on the website!!

Chris Murray - Date of Stay: July 2009

We’ll be back next year!

Just a quick note attaching a few photos of Mark's prize carp catches out on the lake! A good time was had by all - great that the pool is now heated and so glad this time we took advantage of Jude's wonderful cooking - everyone thought it was the best meal we had while we were there (even those that tried a posh local restaurant in Loches!). We'll be back again next year. All the best.
