Husband and wife team Nick and Charlie Gann took ownership of Exclusive Angling Holidays in January 2013.  They have lived in France for over ten years and have three children Rory, Léon and Mathilde.  Apart from being a full time mum, Charlie also runs with her mum, your lakeside catering service ‘Charlie’s Kitchen’.  Nick has been fishing and working at Etangs de Papillon since 2004 and can boast a personal best of 32lbs Carp from Rouge and a 93lb Catfish on Bleu. They also ensure that all the cleaning and general maintenance at the lakes and the mobile homes are kept to a high standard.

EXCLUSIVE ANGLING HOLIDAYS - MEET THE PEOPLE

The recipe for our success is simple:  Unbeatable fishing in one of the most beautiful locations in France coupled with a total commitment from us in making your fishing holiday the best available!!  

The quality and quantity of the fish and your perfect holiday are our main priorities so if you ever need any help, or have any queries please do not hesitate in talking with  us.

Our holidays are designed to bring you fishing as it should be.  The stock in our lakes have matured and bred in our waters for over 20 years.  

We do not provide anglers with a ‘shopping list’ of what’s available, but we will help you as much as we can and wish you the best of luck in catching your dream fish. They are out there-and getting bigger every year!


Camping Maisonneuve was taken over by Russ & Lorna Watsham in 2014. Originally from Hampshire in the UK, they moved to St Jory de Chalais with their three young children in December 2013. The couple aim to instill a relaxed family feel to the campsite and are working on improving and updating facilities. They will always be on hand to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and help out with any information you might need.
