Fantastic weeks stay at Puyravaud!

As a group of anglers and non fishers we really have had the best of both worlds. With new PB’s made, plenty of sunshine and fish. We are all sad to leave such a lovely venue and Peter and Marion have been the perfect hosts and we loved having the animals around too!

We can’t wait to return! Thankyou both for an amazing stay.

Superb fishing with lots of PB’s achieved. Barn absolutely lovely and well equipped. The pool was wonderful during the hot weather and a welcome relief. A trip to Brantome with canoeing was well worth the visit as is the Plan D’eau for the lake beach by Angouleme – great paddle boarding etc etc good for children big and small!!!! Angouleme Old Quarter area good for bars and restaurants. Peter and Marion brilliant hosts with lots of insider knowledge about the area.

Thankyou both for a great stay.

Second time here and it just gets better and better! Peter and Marion are wonderful hosts that welcome you into their piece of paradise. Truly is a magical place in the most beautiful part of France. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

PS Sorry again for stealing Ellie (the cat)!!!!!!!!!!

Wonderful friends and see you next year.


Our first time here and could not have asked for more! The accommodation is first class and Peter and Marion couldn’t do enough for us and really made our stay perfect. Puyravaud is a beautiful place.

The lake is unreal, Rob and Luke caught both caught multiple PB’s. Rob with a 57lb mirror and Luke a 61lb mirror – just amazing! Our children absolutely loved it – from the pool to the lake, everything was great.

Thanks for making our family holiday one to remember!

Our second family holiday here and my fourth fishing trip to Puyravaud. I have fished in France every year for 10 years and this is far and away the best overall package I have experienced.

Once again accommodation, facilities and hosts Peter and Marion were first class. The fishing got harder as the week progressed due to record temperatures in France. We managed to get a first fish for our 17 year old son – he landed a 33lb fish. He gets a shot for Instagram! For me Another PB. Each year My PB goes up by a couple of pounds – now 53lbs.

We go home happy – thanks again!

Hi Marion & Peter,  just wanted to email you personally to thank you for such a fantastic week. As you know I’ve been fishing all over France for many years and what you have done there is the best part of a miracle. As soon as I arrived I felt a special bond with your complex – to me it has a special mystical feel that you come a cross at certain times in your life so again can’t wait to return and will confirm dates in the next week for next year.

Love to the both of you speak soon Steve x

Love Michelle, Brian and Arrie
