About Les etangs de la Crolee Bas
In the middle west of France, in the Deux-Sévres province, towards Poitiers, you will find Etangs de la Crolee amongst the beautifully rolling French hills. The site is a total of 16 hectares and is securely fenced around the perimeter. When you come through the gated entrance, the holiday atmosphere hits you immediately and you know a week of excitement awaits you! The complex contains 2 lakes, named Crolee Bas (the lower lake) and Crolee Haut (the higher lake). Both lakes can be exclusively rented out and have their own large luxury safari tent with 35m2 of interior space and a weatherproof veranda covering 20m2. The interior consists of 2 separate bedrooms, a cot/playroom, a large kitchen and a lounge area. Due to the slight difference in height, both lakes disappear from each other’s field of view. In each safari tent setting you will feel alone with your family or friends on your own private lake.
The luxurious, toilet block is located between both lakes. Each lake has its own shower and toilet room, you will also be provided with your own key for this. This building also has a common room where you can chill out and there is a freezer here for bait/food and you can also wash the dishes in this facility. The toilet block is conveniently located around 50 meters from both swims.+ Show more - Toon minder

Les etangs de la Crolee Bas
Etang Crolee Bas
Etang Crolee Bas is 3 hectares in size. It has one centrally located swim, which has a generous amount of space. In fact it’s such a large swim you can comfortably fish here with a maximum of 3 anglers. The perfect social swim to enjoy time with friends and family whilst fishing in the beautiful French countryside. The luxurious and spacious safari tent offers room for a maximum of 4 adults and 2 children. Crollee Bas is fed by a natural spring so the water is fresh and keeps the fish and aquatic environment extremely healthy. The lakebed consists of silt, clay and sand. You’ll find it is a maximum of 3.5 meters deep. An oxygen pump runs through the centre of the lake and this shouldn’t bother you whilst you’re fishing, but it will ensure that the fish remain more active in the warmer periods.
Crolee Bas’s stock profile is superb. There are about 160 carp swimming there, many of which are exceptionally scaled ones, linear are common here as are fully scaled mirrors and some really interesting Ghost Carp too. Many carp in Crolee are home-bred and the local stamp of fish from this venue is really nice. Roach and pike also swim in the lake too. The biggest fish caught at Crolee Bas is over 25kg (50lbs+).
Bringing your own particles is prohibited, however you will receive 25 kilos of particle flakes mix on arrival. You are allowed to bring some hemp seed and a few kilos of tiger nuts as long as they have been properly prepared.
There is a plastic boat with ors for your use at the swim, although, it’s worth noting you should bring an electric motor, battery or fish finder yourself if you want to use the boat more efficiently.
