Vaux venue description

Vaux has become a firm favourite with Angling Lines customers – many return year after year. Take a look at the customer feedback and it’s not hard to see why. A stunning house that will sleep up to 10, sat on the banks of a prolific carp lake that you get all to yourself. "Les Vaux" or the Etang du Moulin des Vaux, to give it it's full French name, is a superb stone built mill house that dates back to the 16th Century and is set in the lush green countryside on the borders between Brittany, Normandy and the Pays de la Loire. It is approximately 2 hours from the ferry port of Caen and 1½ hours from St. Malo. The very pretty private lake that lies next to the house dates back over 300 years and had never previously been used as a commercial fishery until it was purchased in 2002 by its English owners, Chas and Josie Cook, who have restored the lakeside house to a very high standard and stocked the lake with fish. The accommodation and venue has been specifically designed with the family in mind. Just a few minutes walk from the venue is the well-stocked local village shop/boulangerie, where, in addition to groceries and provisions, you can buy bread and pastries fresh baked on the premises daily (closed Mondays). You will also find a tabac (for cigarettes) within the local garage and a pizza van arrives in the village main road each Thursday evening. Fougères and its supermarkets is a ten minute drive away.
