Welcome to our Carp fishing in Brittany

Etang du Vaulaurent (in English meaning Lake of the Golden Valley) is our private, family owned lake of some 30 acres, set in 50 acres of our own land, largely forested, and in a quiet rural valley approximately one mile from the village of St Martin sur Oust in the heart of the Morbihan, Brittany France. Our carp fishing venue is tailor made for those who either prefer a "Drive and Survive" style angling break, or, for those who prefer it, we also have serviced lakeside cabin accommodation, and a fully self contained four berth timber 'Finlandia' chalet.

Since we commenced ownership in 2012, we have carried out considerable developments around and adjacent to the water to enhance your angling break. Vaulaurent now offers fully private carp fishing in Brittany, France  with no rights of way across the property, new locations for swims, a modern amenity block, lakeside cabin accommodation (equipped with kitchenette, electricity and running water) if required, and much more to enhance your carp fishing break in France at Etang du Vaulaurent Venue. 




A Dream Location to fish for Carp in France

Having been a reservoir serving the old mill  (long disused), Etang du Vaulaurent is an old naturally balanced, silt bottomed lake featuring tree lined margins and lily pads. Its depth varies from 5 feet to 12 feet at its deepest point. 

For many years a favourite fishing location for pike, perch and many other species of fish, the lake has more recently - and by its two previous owners - been stocked and used as carp fishery.  

We reopened in April 2012.Since this time we have reintroduce more of 300  mirror and common carps.

Timber Finlandia cabins

Our timber cabins are new and are well located close to the water at the top of the bank, each with a good view over the lake and its own swims.

A modern amenity block is provided for those wishing simply to "bivvy" by their swims. 

The Fish & Fishing in Brittany - France

Etang du Vaulaurent is largely stocked with mirrors and common carp, with the lake record for 2015 being a 58lbs mirror.  There are now six or eight in the 50's, several 40's, and many 30's, 20's, and doubles.  There may just be a sixty in 2016.

  Carp fishing in France By night



We are licensed for carp fishing by night, so you can legally fish 24 hours a day.

Although Golden Valley is completely private, permits are still required under French regulations. The permits required will be obtained by us for each angler and will be included in the weekly price.
