Carp Fishing Holidays in France.

Le Grand Pierre holds carp to 76lb, with three know 70lb+ fish swimming in its depths.

Le Grand Pierre is situated near the town of Nancy in France which is approximately 5hrs drive from Calais.

Just a stones throw away from the river Moselle, this picturesque 30 acre gin clear gravel pit holds carp to 76lb, with three know 70lb+ fish swimming in its depths. Numerous 40’s, 50’s & 60’s are also present so you can be sure you’ll get plenty of action during your weeks stay.

Le Grand Pierre has approximately 20 pegs on the lake. Each swim has enough space for a bivvy with overwrapp, a concrete bench which is perfect for cooking, tying rigs and socialising.

Exclusive to English anglers, with a maximum of 12 people fishing at any one time, you’ve always got the option to move swims should you wish.
