To all our wonderful customers and friends,

Marion and I have made the very difficult decision to move on to the next phase of our lives and sell Puyravaud.

Over the last couple of years, we have been looking for the right family to come in and take over what is a very special place to us.  It needed to be someone special, who would continue to run the business whilst developing Puyravaud further into one of France’s top carp fishing venues with accommodation.

We are very pleased to introduce you to the new owners, Steve and Kelly Rothberg, their children Bella and Emelia, and their beautiful German Shepherd Luna.  The whole family are keen carp anglers.

Last week they moved into Puyravaud and are currently busy settling in, whilst preparing for their first busy season.

For all those of you with confirmed bookings, please rest assured that these are still in place and full details have been passed over to Steve and Kelly. They intend to continue all the services you are used to from us including gear hire, airport runs, food and bait provision and are already looking at ways to improve what Puyravaud has to offer.

We will be closely involved in the handover to ensure the smooth transition to Steve and Kelly. It is very refreshing for us to see the enthusiasm shown by them as they settle into their new lives and plan to make their first season a great success.

Steve and Kelly will obviously be in touch with each of you in the next few weeks and as your holidays approach.  They will of course be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Marion and I would like to thank all our customers, past, present, and future, for helping us make Puyravaud a ‘go to’ carp fishing destination in France.  We have had a fantastic 17 years and met some wonderful friends along the way. The memories will be with us for the rest of our lives!

Thank you all  and please see Steve and Kelly’s contact details below.

Peter and Marion
