L’étang de Vaise


The Vaise pond can only be rented in its entirety. With its approximately 3.3 hectares, the majority of our guests will probably come with 2 or 4 fishermen but we accept up to 6 fishermen. The choice is yours!

Are you looking for comfort, space, tranquility and catching trophy fish? The Vaise pond is made for you. A safari chalet is located on the bank to offer you increased comfort. The Vaise pond is equipped with a lodge for 4 people.

The accommodation includes a first bedroom with a double bed and a second bedroom with two single beds. In addition, you will find a beautiful living room, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom separated from the toilet. The lodge also has electric heating, making it a great choice for the colder months of the year. Two spacious sites have been set up on the pond: one place to accommodate the luxurious 4-person lodge and another place on the central part of the lake to accommodate bivvies.

Each pitch has a platform of around 20 m2 covered with gravel! It is advisable to use a rodpod and not spades. A boat is included in the offer on both platforms. Each location is also equipped with a weighing bag and a landing mat. At the dike of the pond, you can find up to 4.5 m deep. The bottom consists of sand, gravel and silt. We advise you to bring probing equipment to detect the most productive substrates.
