Fishing

CarpThe Hotel de France is the perfect base for your fishing holiday in the Loir region, and beyond in the Loire Valley. The region offers plenty of variety, from fishing lakes, both natural and man-made, to rivers, with fishing literally on the hotels door step.

The Loir River, which runs alongside the hotel, is famous for its fishing. Carp, Perch, Chub, Roach, Bream, Zander, Tench and Pike are just a few of the species that can be caught.

Carp, many weighing over 40lbs, have been caught in the regions lakes, making it a favourite destination for Carp fisherman. Night fishing for Carp can also be arranged. Other species that can be caught include Trout, Bream, Eel, Pike, Catfish and Sturgeon.

We can organise your fishing permit, supply bait or provide a complete package, depending on your requirements, with experienced fishermen and fully equipped boats available on request. A picnic lunch can also be provided, as well as our shuttle, to take you to and from your fishing destination.

After a full days fishing you can return for dinner at the hotel and a comfortable night’s sleep in our newly refurbished rooms, ready for the next day’s fishing. If the fish are not biting, relax by our heated riverside swimming pool or we can provide you with an itinerary that will to take you to the best spots in the region, from beautiful riverside villages to historic châteaux, with the odd vineyard or two to enjoy along the way.
