2013-recap Windmill Lake: carp fishing in France!

After years in the Dutch hospitality, where Anton & Diaan owned & managed a hotel in Schevingen, they realisered their dream to live in France and owning their own carp fishing lake. Anton & Diaan bought Windmill Lake in 2006, and transformed a wilderness and old accommodation into a beautiful estate with first class facilities. The 2013-season was their seventh 'official' year running their carp fishing lake, and owner DIane makes a nice news round-up for 2013:
"The 2013-season at Windmill Lake was great. Of course, we've had weeks that the catches could have been much better, but with a wet and cold spring like this year and a very hot summer it makes sense. All in all, we have no reason to complain about the catches and the nice people we have welcomed at our estate. I particularly liked the large number of non-angling guests this year, many anglers brought their girlfirend/woman. They really enjoyed their meals and drinks in our new bistro, but also the good company and games that were played there. As more women accompanied the anglers, fishing seemed to be less pressured for the anglers, as day trips were often made by them. The Allier departement in which we live is very attractive and well worth a visit, so many of our guests did.
Anton & myself are very passionate about cooking and really enjoy to prepare dinner for the anglers... it's a pleasure to see so much empty plates after dinner and good feedback from the guests. Known dishes such as a half farmers chicken from the oven or homemade hamburger are often served, but also more subtle dishes such as duck breast are highly appreciated. As we love our estate and take care of our environment, most vegetables are home grown and we work with bio- and organic products as much as we can. For 2014, as our clients have suggested, we will continue to make improvements around the lake and accommodations, and we look forward to meet you at Windmill Lake!"
