We offer the standard self-drive package to suit groups and families travelling together. We cater for the serious carp angler and those who wish to bring families, partners and friends along to combine fishing and site-seeing in France. The first class accommodation ensures all will be comfortable and we are determined to ensure that everyone who comes to Puyravaud, finds plenty to occupy their time. For the non fishing types there are cities, towns and villages to explore or maybe you want to simply chill, enjoy Puyravaud’s facilities, including our 10 x 5 metre swimming pool, and relax in the lovely quiet surroundings.
Puyravaud is situated 430 miles South of Calais and takes about 7 hours to drive + stops. It is pretty much motorway or dual carriageway all the way and you normally get the benefit of better weather by travelling that bit further South (The Charente region is officially the second most sunniest part of France!!!).
