Description: Vivier is a privately owned, English run carp fishing holiday venue set amidst the beautiful Loir-et-Cher countryside of northern France, south west of Paris and is a 4.5 hrs drive from Calais or 3.5 from Le Harve. The lake is 15 acres of water sitting in 40 acres of quiet French woodland and fields and its surroundings are a real haven for wildlife so you can also expect to see buzzards, owls, herons and kingfishers during your visit. If you like getting away from it all Vivier is the perfect venue. Lake: Etang du Vivier is a rich, mature, estate type lake of 15 acres sitting in 40 acres of quiet woodland and fields. The water depths range from 1 metre at the shallow end and 2 metres down to the damn wall. There is a track around the whole lake so your gear can be dropped off behind your swims and then returned to the car park so no struggling around the lake with your mountain of gear. The lake bed is mainly sand, clay & fine silt and the water is heavily coloured due to the large head of carp continually rooting up the bottom looking for food. There are 7 single swims and 3 double swims all designed for anglers with plenty of room in each. All swims have their own uninterrupted areas of lake with visible features, margins and areas of shallow and deep water, we only allow a maximum of 6 anglers at any one time so there is always plenty of room for a move if you wish to try another area or fancy stalking one of the bays.There are a number of small grassy islands dotted around the lake which provide nice features to fish to and the marginal slopes and drop-offs are always worth a try. A couple of swims have purpose built wooden platforms where a rod pod is necessary. The fish patrol up and down the lake on the hunt for food all the time and can be seen rolling and jumping all over the lake on a regular basis and they get caught from all swims so expect plenty of action whatever swim you choose.The lake is extremely quiet and peaceful especially at night so all you will expect to hear are the owls hooting, the catfish slapping and your clutches screaming!

The carp fishing holidays are run on a drive and survive basis and the lake caters for groups of up to 6 angler’s maximum weekly so each angler will have 2.5 acres or more to themselves. The English owner Ian is at hand for advice and tips and there is a large mobile home with two bedrooms, sofas, showers, toilets, fridge, freezer & cooking facilities. There is a designated barbeque area outside with tables and chairs for eating alfresco. Should you wish to tear yourself away from the lake there are restaurants and a large supermarket nearby.
