Malvoisine venue description
map load error

The Etang de la Malvoisine is situated in a sleepy village in the heart of the Mayenne region, an easy drive from the channel ferry ports of Le Havre and Caen. The owners are French and we’ve been very impressed with the professional way they are setting their lake up. We’re confident that it’ll be a first class venue and it’s often the anglers who get on a new water early who have some cracking catches... why not make it you? This well managed and mature 17 acre lake really is a delight to the eyes with long trailing weeping willows, far bank overhangs and sunken branches which give it a real “carpy” feel. Understandably given with the abundance of bankside trees the lake bed is mostly silt, but it’s quite firm making bait presentation simplicity itself. Interestingly you fish from a central mushroom shaped peninsula of around two acres. This means that you are effectively fishing from the centre of the lake and back out towards the lake banks. This gives maximum casting space, great far margin features and also makes for a great social venue as the swims are closer than would be the case if you were bivvied around the circumference of the lake as normal.
