The Vaulaurent's lake is a private lake of 12 hectares (30 acres), located in Morbihan, in Brittany. It is divided into 8 fishing swims which can accommodate 2 anglers per swim.
The environment is very wild and in the middle of a quiet and rural valley near a to the village of Saint Martin sur Oust.
The Vaulaurent's pond is a place for carp fishing in Brittany. It is a very old lake and its ecosystem is naturally balanced, the bottom of the pond is covered with mud. The water depth varies between 1.5m and 3.5m.
The Vaulaurent's lake is a perfect spot for carp fishing in France. The current owners are very welcoming and have greatly contributed to the quality of the carp stock: many mirror, common, zips and fullys. The biggest common carp weighs 27.5kg (61lbs) and miroir 33kg (73lbs) we also find about fifteen carps of more than 22 kg, many between 16 and 20 kg and an important quantity of carps in the range of 10 to 15 kg (35lbs).
The Vaulaurent's pond is entirely private, but it is nevertheless mandatory to have a federal fishing permit.In fact, the pond is crossed by a stream which requires the possession of a fishing licence. For those who do not have one, it will be possible to buy it on the spot, on arrival, from Michel, the owner.
For carp anglers who like to fish from a biwy, it is possible at the Vaulaurent. But for those who want more comfort, the Vaulaurent's pond also has 2 fully equipped cottages just in front of the fishing swims n°1 and 2.
Since the work carried out by the owners, the pond is fully secured, a modern sanitary block has been built and the paths have been completely renewed for direct access to the fishing swims.
The Vaulaurent's Pond has a Club House, located next to the reception, for the convenience of all its guests. It is a large wooden chalet where you will find free of charge fridges, freezers, a microwave, an electric coffee machine, an electric hob, a sink for washing up with hot water, and numerous electric sockets for recharging boat batteries, computers and mobile phones.

If you wish to invite other people who are not fishermen, it is possible, you will have to pay a supplement to Michel at your arrival of 5€/night for each additional guest (except for children under 5 years old) and plan the sleeping accommodation accordingly.
