Well what can we say about Lac Cimes, since the pick up from the airport everything has been 1st Class. Paul & Jill are top class hosts where nothing is to much trouble and they are lovely people. The food package is second to none, fantastic all week, the gite has everyting you need again. top notch accomodation.

Everything on Lac Cimes is spotless , really is one of the best fishing holidays i've been on. Now for the fishing, it's been hard, weather started VERY hot so fish not interested as can be expected, weather mid week started to cool but not enough to cool lake to get them feeding. The fish we did pick up were immaculate just wish we could of had more, but Paul's knowledge is great told us to stick to the spots and they produced.

All in all very enjoyable week, we will defo be back in 2018 for sure, Our little piece of heaven.

Fish caught 4 x 33lb + 2 x high 20's and 1 18lb

Thanks Paul & Jill for everything X

Firstly a massive thank you to Paul & Jill for looking after us and making us feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The gite was spotlessly clean, cozy and ticked all the right boxes.

As for the fishing
Given the weather conditions, was not easy so many anglers come to France expecting to have an easy time, not the case, keep thinking simple and the results will come. We landed at total of 16 fish all in supreme condition but it was not easy.

13 mirrors from 20lb - 35 3/4 lb
1 linear stunning fish 27lb
2 commons 33lb and 35 1/2 lb

like to say thank you again to Paul & Jill, we'll be back would like to think we've made some awesome friends.

Cheers Gary, Steph, Dan and Jean X

ps your turn for the vodka jellies next time

We have had a brilliant stay at Lac Cimes! Keith and Sue made us feel very welcome, lovely people and very helpful.
My partner has only fished a few days and they've been a hectic few days of fishing, be prepared for two rods to go off at the same time! I had to help him because he couldn't land 3 fish at the same time.
We have really enjoyed our stay and will definately be back again with friends and will recommend Lac Cimes to our friends and family, it's been a relaxing week for me and a hectic week of fishing for Sam.
Thank you Sue, Keith and Paul, we wish you all the success with Lac Cimes.

There is only one word to describe our holiday and experience...... OUTSTANDING!!
From our greeting at the airport by Paul it has been great. Accommodation is first class and Paul's hint's and tips on fishing the lake have really paid off. Mel caught 14 so far and Me caught 21 so far. Mel beat her PB 3 times!
Sue and Keith are also lovely and the food package is to die for, we will be coming back to hopefully catch more fish.
Beautiful surrounds, wildlife at its best and the best bit is relaxing by the lake with a glass of wine or two!
Thank you so much for making our holiday a real delight.
"Blobski" i will be back for you, you were 32lb this time, next time you will be a 40 i'm sure.
See you very soon.

Arrived on 2nd for a short break and we were met at the airport by Paul and Jill, at arrival at the lake we were delighted at the accommodation, facilities and the beautiful surroundings.
Even though this wasn't a fishing holiday, Paul tempted Brian in having a go and although he had not picked up a rod for almost 40 years he caught a 22lb common and was absolutely dumfounded (seriously thinking about selling his Gold Wing and taking up fishing).
A lovely chilled out break with both of them making our stay so enjoyable.
Many thanks

Have just spend a fantastic week here at the lake catching 29 carp to 25lb. PB's for all three of us who fished. Paul 25lb, Matt 24lb 15oz and Ang 18lb 1oz.
We caught in total 500lb 9oz and it couldn't have been better.
The accommodation is amazing, spacious, clean and with everything you need, even down to the bread, butter, milk etc when you arrive, a lovely touch.
Keith and Sue could not have done more, friendly, welcoming and always on hand for problems.
We would love to come back again and we definately be recommending to all our friends.
Thanks again.

We met Keith at the airport and he made us feel very welcome. Our two sons Jack and Lewis were amazed when they saw the lake and couldn't wait for the action to begin. They both broke their PB's on the first night.
Keith and Paul gave the boys excellent advice in and out of the water. Together with Paul's boilies and the advice enabled the boys to have great fishing day and night. The lake and the fish are kept in great condition.
The accommodation is first class and the food provided bu Sue was fantastic (quality and quantity). Nothing was too much trouble which was a great help for two dad's with two son's.
We would all love to come back again and we would like to wish Paul, Keith and Sue all the success they deserve.
Great week and Thanks.

To be greeted so warmly both at the airport and here by Sue and Keith was an unexpected and a pleasant start to our week. Both breakfast and evening meal were very substantial, cooked lovely and varied. and to be served both meals around the lake is something "you don't get at home".
Didn't get the big one but accommodation, lake, food and hosts made it a time to remember for Greg and my self.
Thank you Keith and Sue.

What can i say about Lac Cimes......... well i really don't know where to begin about paradise!
The accommodation is spotless with all the home comforts you could need, absolutely fantastic and to eat al fresco on the patio table and chairs each evening, priceless!!!
The lake is beautiful, ideal for nature lovers, so much to see. Now for the fish, Trev came with a PB of 17 1/2 lb and left with a new PB of 28lb 2oz and leaving with a mixture of mirrors and commons adding to a total of over 200lb of carp way beyond our wildest dreams. I float fished for roach which i caught at least 8 a day all of good size. The fish are in superb condition i was amazed to see the size of them and know there are some monsters in the lake.
Now on to Sue and Keith, i cannot put in to enough words how amazing they are, our every need was catered for far beyond what we expected nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Trev and me feel like we have known them forever, we are going to miss our chats and joining them for an evening drink.
we both wish Paul, Sue and Keith all the success they truely deserve.
To sum it all up this is truely the best holiday we have ever been on and cannot wait to return to a little bit of French paradise and see our "friends" Sue and Keith.
"will get you next time Blobski"
