Lac de Beaute - 3 acre fishing lake - 2 hrs from ferry port
Lac de Beauté is an English owned and run family friendly lake sitting in the picturesque countryside of western France, about 2 hours from the ferry port of Caen.
It’s surrounded by Canadian pines and is rich in wildlife - squirrels, rabbits, multi-coloured kingfishers and owls are frequent visitors. It’s situated about 10 minutes south of the world famous Le Mans racetrack and there’s a range of local shops about 2 minutes drive away which includes a chemist, butchers, bakers, tobacconist and a supermarket.
The lake is 3 acres in size, sitting in 5 acres of land, and is around 37 years old. It’s fed from a natural spring and has a sand and gravel bed.
There are five well spaced swims, one of which is a double, accommodating up to five anglers. Fishing is from one bank which gives easy access to the far margin features. The banks are flat and grassy and have ample room for bivvies.
Lac de Beauté has a very good stock of carp which almost guarantees plenty of rod bending action! There were 200 carp introduced in 2005 including 10 big carp between 43lb and 54lb 10oz with now at least one in the 60s, five in the 50s, numerous 40s and an abundance of 30s. The lake also offers catfish to 100lbs+, the smallest of cats is 45lb, and don't forget the sturgeons to 40lb.
To make things a bit more luxurious for our "Drive and Survive" anglers we have lots of extra facilities including 2 full body power showers, flush toilet, fridge, freezer, two ring hob, microwave, kettle and tea/coffee/sugar & milk.
This venue is well suited for disabled anglers as there is good access to the shower block via a concrete wheel chair ramp and extra wide doors. The owner, Alex, is always on hand to assist the disabled angler with any aspect of his/her fishing and actively welcomes disabled fisherman.

Details: Wheelchair Anglers Fantastic Week Fishing
Ray, a wheelchair angler had a brilliant time here. He was amazed at how easy the access was to the Shower Block, the double door made it easy for the wheelchair. Ray was also able to get to all the pegs with ease.
Our Shower/ Facilities Block has a ramp leading up into it, there are 2 full body shower rooms with toilets, a microwave, two hobs, a fridge, kettle, sink and various pots, pans, cutlery, crockery. There is also ENGLISH FREEVIEW TV and DVD Player, plus of course, a heater for the cooler evenings. There is also the possibility of turning the seating into a double bed (if the caravan is not suitable for access)
Having Ray here reminded us of another angler we had here earlier in the year. Roger used a mobility scooter and, my word, did he build up some speed around the Lake.
He said the whole setup for disabled anglers was superb. The rest of Rogers’s Party were well impressed with him because he was taking their tea and coffee round , which meant that they didn’t have to leave their swims.
We welcome people with all disabilities, Alex is in his element when out there with the guys, he is a hands on sort of guy, on the shop floor, and is there to give advice, when asked, on baits, the hot spots etc. His enjoyment comes from seeing the guys enjoy themselves, especially guys with disabilities, the joy on their faces when they catch.
