We have worked with Vincons for over 10 years now and it has been the venue that many of us in the office have chosen to frequent as our ‘chilled out’ holiday destination. A 12 acre runs water, lakeside cabin, stone gite and swimming pool all sit within the grounds of the Bouchot’s family farm in central France.
When we visited this autumn we were amazed by the upgrades to the gites and lake, so we promptly took a tonne of photos and have since updated the site. We’ve added a few below and if you’re looking for a venue to suit a range of anglers and non-anglers, we think you should take a good look here…
Vincons offers 2 choices of accommodation – the lodge at the lakeside and a fully renovated cottage 5 minutes walk away.
The 12 acre lake was created in 1965 and has been left completely natural.
If there’s one thing Vincons has in abundance it is space. There’s plenty of big grassy areas around the lake and beautifully manicured grounds surrounding the pool.

The lodge is situated right on the lake side, perfect for alfresco lunches while keeping an eye on your rods

‘For me, a weeks fishing at Vincons either with family or friends is a week in paradise & I intend to return for many years to come. ‘ – Steven Tucker, Aug ’14
You will be warmly greeted by the Bouchot family who grow cereal and breed wild boar here. Vincons lies in the very picturesque region of the Cher, and takes around 5 hours to reach from Calais by car.
There’s also the stone gite just a few minutes walk from the lake, which is disturbingly nicer furnished inside than most of our own homes!
