TO commemorate the launch of the English version of their web site, the Creuse Tourist Board (central France) has decided to offer anglers the chance of spending a week in a fishing paradise.

Answer four simple questions on the Creuse and win a week in a specially adapted self-catering holiday fishing cottage*. Situated near rivers and lakes, the cottage has everything a keen angler could need and carries the Gîte de France label.

You can find out more about the angling and family holidays opportunities in the region by visiting our Fishers section and looking at overseas Destinations. Just click the red Fisheries button in the navigation bar on the left.
