Our first trip to Puyravaud and our very high expectations were exceeded!

Absolutely everything was top notch, high quality, beautiful and very clean – it is impossible to fault the place!

Accommodation, fishing and hosts – all 5 star!

Thank you Marion and Peter for a wonderful stay. Oh, awesome food package as well! Really enjoyed the company in the evening as we ate together. We are booking again for June 2019 and bringing a larger family group!

Well when we arrived so late in the year, we were unsure about the weather. We should not have worried, the coldest day was 15 degrees and the warmest 22 degrees, so never under-estimate the weather here. Marion and Peter are the most helpful and sociable people in the world – also love the dogs and cat – Tello, Jasper and Ellie!!!!! Made us not miss our Bubbles at home!

We would love to come back again in the future after next years wedding is over (June 2018).

Just love this place, the people and the pets.

Love Cora, John and Peter XXX




Fantastic week despite some hard fishing, but still very enjoyable. Pete and Marion are wonderful hosts, excellent food, excellent accommodation and we can’t wait for our next visits in April and October 2018. Badger did go away with a massive PB of 55.12 on his first visit!

Just returned from a 4 night break on Heron lake. Finished with 24 carp to 48lb plus. Great fishing in good weather with super hosts. What more can you ask? Already booked for next year. A big thanks to Marion & Pete for everything, and going that extra mile…..as usual. See you in May.

Our first visit and wow what a beautiful place! We came as a family with our two children (1 and 2) and although a little difficult at times we would definitely come back when they are a little older. The weather was not great but they did get a couple of dips in the pool which they loved. Men had some great days fishing so all in all a great week.

Thanks you to Marion and Peter for everything (fantastic hosts).

Our second visit, everything is just as good as the first time. Fishing has been superb, accommodation spot on, lots of walks and wildlife – good food and wine! The weather could have been better on our second week, but we did manage some sunbathing and swimming.

Thanks for everything Peter and Marion and we hope to see you again before too long.

What a fabulous environment Pete and Marion have created for us to enjoy a great holiday! Our Pete thinks he is in heaven when he’s fishing down on the lake watching and listening to all the wild-life he so much enjoys. We’ve also visited some lovely countryside and villages during our trip as well as Perigueux a beautiful city.


We came for a family holiday and to spend a lot of time together. It’s a credit to the accommodation and fishing that we didn’t want to venture out of here too many times.

The accommodation is out of this world with attention to detail beyond what we have seen before. George will agree the pool is AMAZING and maintained so well.

The fishing – we got so many fish of a lifetime and everything was beyond our expectations – 2 x 50’s, 5 x 40’s and 17 x 30’s!!!! If we had not caught, the view, lakes, nature was more than enough to catch anyone!!!!!

We have to credit Marion and Peter for assistance and advice and being such wonderful hosts. From now on, every time I see a Kingfisher, I will think of Marion.

PS – the dogs and cats are lovely……………….!!!!!!!!

Many thanks
