What an amazing place this is! Spent a week fishing here and this was my first ever fishing trip to France and i could not recommend it enough. Steve truly is one of a kind and cannot help you out and do enough for you. We had the lodge that is just perfect and was everything we needed and more lovely and clean with a cooker fridge and freezer hot water and shower and nice comfy beds for the nights away from the bank and having not been here before it was far better than our expectations. The fishing is amazing also and not being very experienced on a French lake Steve offered to fish the first night out to give a hand if I needed it which was very helpful and after he pointed out a few swims known to produce fish in the past i had a couple of fish to start me off, 15lb and 18lb not the biggest but perfect fish. Then I smashed my pb of 19.8oz with a 32lb mirror and had plenty of 22 and 26 lbers and I lost a good couple of fish some nights also, but I was more than happy with what I had caught in the week and had exceeded what I thought I would catch. On the last night I thought I would give it 1 last go before leaving this fishing paradise and was blown away when I landed a 50lb grass carp and then a little later a 22lb mirror carp. This is a place that just keeps on exceeding your expectations and can only get better being run by Steve, he is purely out to help you and ensure you have the best time here and make this place better and better. Do not hesitate if you are thinking about giving this place a try, it is a 5-star service and 5 star fishing you will not be disappointed!

From the minute we arrived I could tell Steve; the owner was an honest down to earth guy who is very passionate about his lake and the fish that dwell there. A quick chat about the rules followed by a tour of the facilities on offer and we headed down to our pegs. The lake itself looks a very simplistic setup from first glances but don’t be fooled, deep areas and steep banks really test your methods and how you will approach the fishing on offer. The pegs are ideal as although close enough for a great social each one has a good amount of water in it with many hidden features. The fish are in immaculate condition and very well looked after, fed on highly nutritional foods throughout the year. I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and will head back again and again. Many thanks for an amazing trip Steve

I first visited Lac de Lumiere in 2017 after a friend recommended the fishery. We arrived at the lake and immediately we were greeted with open arms from the owner and was made to feel very welcome.

Steve was helpful without being overpowering, going through rules and spots then leaving us to set up stall. We had an amazing week catching loads of fish and I have to say this venue is one of the best I have been to.

Steve and Dawn couldn’t do enough, and the facilities were second to none. Well recommended.
