Peter & Marion,

Thank you for a warm welcome and plenty of great food, you could not have been more helpful, we have had a fantastic time and some great fishing!

The care and attention you have paid to restoring the buildings and surrounding landscape is obvious.

As soon as we get home, we will be negotiating with the family for a return trip!

All our best

Adrian and Tony (Gemma and Sue)


Marion and Pete,


Thankyou both again for a lovely weekend. Amazing hospitality as always. We have all thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and ended up with 3 out of 4 PB’s which isn’t bad going!

Thank you again – such a fantastic location, experience and trip and not many other fishing holidays like it!

See you in October.

All our love

Emma, Wendy, Josh and Adam.


All round fantastic first trip to Puyravaud. The lakes are stunning as is the location and accommodation. It was exactly as we hoped if not better. Will definitely be back, possibly with the family as accommodation and facilities are top notch.

We want to give Kingfisher a try too in the future. Thanks so much for your hospitality, fabulous food and great fishing.

Hopefully see you again next year

Gav and Matt.


Thank you both so much for an amazing week. Your hospitality is outstanding, can’t thank you both enough for providing a cot, highchair, stair gate and tent etc for Jacob.

The apples and figs were so yummy and even better than that, me and mum could pick them fresh ourselves! We’ve loves seeing Otello and Jasper and found it hilarious when Jasper lets himself into the cottage through the front door!!!!!!! Jacob had an amazing tractor ride and that little video clip will be going on his memory DVD’s.

Accommodation is spectacular! We visited Le Grange Aux Oies restaurant, beautiful food, breathtaking scenery G+T gorgeous – highly recommend this place!

Thanks again for providing a great holiday – you are stars. Keep doing what you are doing.

Love always Louis, Jo, Jacob, Chris and Steve xxx


As always, a fantastic week, great food and hospitality – Marion can never do enough for you! Peter always on hand and happy to help. We look forward to our next trip in April 2019. Stunning big fish and to finish the week off with a new lake record of 63.0lbs (Split Tail).

Many thanks from Dave O, Dave L and Badger.


Sam was here with Will and Sam who had been before! 4 days and nights only!

Where to Start!

Marion and Peter – Fantastic, warm, friendly hosts. Amazing cooking – thankyou both!

Barn and facilities – Clean, tidy and everything you could wish for and more!

Surroundings – Beautiful countryside. Wildlife in abundance, ospreys, buzzards and kingfishers – Just Stunning!

Fishing – One word, Incredible! Trip of a lifetime. We caught 46 carp over 20lbs in a 4 day and night session!

See you again soon.

Thankyou so much for such an enjoyable stay and your excellent hospitality. I am certainly going home a different person to when I came! Your home is amazing, don’t forget to enjoy it.

All our love Michelle, Dave and Russ.


We have had a lovely two week break at Puyravaud. Weather has been very hot for the most part, only a couple of rainy days, but mostly 25-30 degrees. Its 2 years since we last visited and the lake has definitely matured and was more challenging. We resisted Pete’s offer of the bait boat, mainly because Aaron feels if you can’t cast yourself its not proper fishing. We had a fair result fish wise. Fish are hugging the far bank more now and Aaron did the best of the 3 fishing due to his ability to cast the furthest.

Went out for another fine meal at Chez Steph and also recommend the Creperie Patrice et Francoise in La Rochefoucauld. I had a minor hiccup when I left the car in first gear rather than reverse and nearly ended up dining with Marion and Peter, but sadly knocked the top portion of their wall down – apologies again!!!!!!!!

I’m sure we will be back again for more of the same in the future. All our love and thanks for a fab holiday.

PS – loved seeing all the wildlife this year, especially the Kingfishers that kept landing on our rods. They have definitely been breeding since our last trip.

What can we say, yet another fabulous week. Wonderful accommodation and the fish get bigger every year – this time Terry caught 4 x 50lbs+ fish on the trot!. Weather was glorious. You have a little piece of heaven here.

See you same week next year

Love Chris and Terry


What a wonderful week we have had!

My husband has been here twice before and was raving about how amazing this place is. And he was right – it truly is amazing from watching the sun rise to watching the sunset and everything in between.

Peter and Marion have been so welcoming and wonderful, wonderful hosts. We have already booked to come back for next year and can’t wait!
