Etang de Cherry - FOR SALE

This is a rare and unique opportunity to acquire Etang de Cherry, a carp-fishing leisure complex located 3km from the beautiful historic town of Vitry le Francois in the Champagne region of Northern France, just 3¼ hours from Calais.

The property comprises a 100-acre plot containing a picturesque 55-acre carp lake stocked with approximately 900 carp. Hand-chosen carp have been carefully stocked over the past 5 years, up to a 68lb 6oz mirror in 2013. Although seemingly a vast span of water, the lake hosts a 3-acre island sitting squarely in the middle, making every swim unique and intimate.

Bailiff and Owner’s Lodge

There are bailiff facilities, with caravan and adjoining outbuildings alongside lock-up units, and a social area at one end of the lake.

There is a newly-built superb 2-bedroom lodge with large lounge, constructed in April 2016, which cleverly adjoins a modern 2-bedroom static home with central heating and all facilities. The lodge sits right on top of a superb fishable point and is constructed around a covered decked veranda, with bore hole freshly filtered water, new solar panel electricity, and sewage for exceptional owner accommodation.

The Lake

The lake is stocked well, and comes with an exceptional head of hand-picked BIG CARP. It currently caters for UK carp anglers. The lake at present very comfortably hosts 15 swims, with the majority being doubles, but can be rearranged to hold more anglers at the discretion of the new owners.

This beautiful lake has fantastic access all around. A bankside gravel track gives anglers the luxury of parking behind every swim. Moving forward, the lake comes with all the necessary and legal night-fishing rights and licences, and the current owner’s relationship with the local mayor is nothing short of fantastic.

PRICE € 477,000 euros
