About La Petite Coquais

This luxury Gite (French House) is surrounded by 3 lakes in a rural setting where you can fish free of charge. These waters are completely at you and your guest’s disposal.

La Petite Coquais has 3 lakes. The largest lake is located 50 metres from the House and is about 1.5 hectare in size. When you want to fish at night, you will have to spend the night at the waterfront so you can fish responsibly. In the large lake all types of fish can be caught such as Trout, Carp and Pike. The two small lakes are together about 1 hectare in size, and is used as a stock pond for they’re fish stock.

We recommend 2 rods per angler, if there is a large party of anglers’ in your group, but you can use 3 rods per angler should you wish to do so. These two smaller waters are about 100 metres away from the accommodation. In the two smaller lakes you can also catch a variety of species from bottom feeders like Carp and predatory species such as Pike. The waters have an average depth between 2-4 meters and fish well all year round.

La Petite Coquais

Want to do something else besides fishing during your stay here? There’s plenty of experiences to be had in the local area, we recommend making a visit to some of the world famous Chateaux’s and vineyards of the region or go to one of the larger cities like Nantes, Rennes, Angers and Laval to soak up some authentic French city life. These cities are definitely worth a visit because of their rich and unique history with Chateaux’s, modern tram systems and exclusive boutiques, not to mention the incredible array of exquisite French cuisine available.

Nearby La Petite Coquais, you will also find some more local tourist attractions such as Terra Botanica, an amusement and botanical park, but also La Petite Couere, a unique eco and agricultural museum with a varied collection of animals and typical French villages is a must see!

Recently the new ATOL shopping centre near Anger has become a very popular location for the guests who have stayed here thanks to the vast selection of shops and restaurants in one location. There is also the market towns of La Guerche-de-Bretagne and Chateau Gontier with their excellent markets, bars and restaurants where you can have a taste of the local cuisine if you want to experience the local culture.

The jet set resort La Baule is an ideal destination for a trip to the coast but also the seaside towns of Dinan and St Malo are worth a visit too!

La Petite Coquais is therefore an excellent location to explore the area where guests come back year after year. It’s the ideal location for families wishing to experience France as much as the fishing there is on offer.
