La Froterie

La Froterie is located in the Deux-Sèvres, in the south-west of France, west of the city of Poitiers. In this region you will find many sights such as cathedrals, silver mines and you can also spend a whole day shopping (if the carp let you). La Froterie offers a beautiful lake in combination with a beautifully furnished holiday home and a swimming pool. You can celebrate your holiday here with friends or your family in an inspiring, peaceful environment. The lake was restocked in December 2018 with mirror carp, common carp and grass carp up to 47 pounds
