This is our third trip to Puyravaud, and this one was a long time coming due to the pandemic. But we finally made it here, this time as a group of 4 instead of our intended 10.

Peter and Marion as usual were fantastic hosts and could not have done more to help, arranging our tests prior to travel and ensuring we had all the right paperwork for our journey home. Now to the fishing, we managed 34 fish and all three of us had new PB’s on more than one occasion, with a best fish a 63.8lb common!

All the best,

Dave Donna Lee and Rees.


3rd year of coming here and it did not disappoint! 2 x PB’s – a 62.6lb common and a 61.12lb mirror (my first two 60’s) and a total of 22 fish (average weight over 41lb)

Peter and Marion have spoilt me rotten as I was on my own due to my friends having to cancel at the last minute. Have booked again for 2021!

Thank you Pete and Marion – will see you again next year with Dave and Michelle as well!

All the best



Weather was against us with a sharp temperature drop at the start of the trip, but we all had a good weeks fishing – All had PB fish and a first 60 for the group as well. Accommodation and hosts were fantastic……..food was great and we have booked again for Sept 2022.

See you all soon

Dream Session at Puyravaud Lakes!

I’ve been fishing in France now for over 20 years and Puyravaud as a fishing venue, either with the family or the lads, has to be rated as one of the very best in my opinion!

On this occasion, we visited Puyravaud Lakes whilst staying the cottage and fishing Heron Lake. We arrived in torrential rain which was forecast to continue into the middle of the first week. We started fishing on the Sunday around midday and after walking round the lake we decided to fish Gaz and Geezers.

My dream session then began, our first fish was a 61lb13oz mirror (first fish!!!!!!!!!). I was blown away! It got better after a lake record grass carp of 46lbs 9ozs, on our second day my first fish was a lake record 62lb6oz common which was also a PB common! Wow amazing with two sixties in the first day and a bit!

I could not believe what had happened in just two days and we continued to catch at an unbelievable rate. We fished just days only and from around 9.30am through 21.00. In the two weeks fishing we caught a total of 65 fish. The total included 4 different 60’s (5 in all) 9 different 50’s and 27 lovely 40’s.We only had 4 fish under 30lbs which is unbelievable in the whole session. Total weight was 2828lbs for an average weight of 43.5lbs – incredible!

Puyravaud’s accommodation is just as good as the fishing with everything you need during your stay.

Peter and Marion are top class hosts and go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. Madison loved playing with the 2 dogs every day and feeding the cats.

Thanks again to Peter and Marion, our holiday at Puyravaud will never be forgotten and will probably never be beaten.

A little bitter sweet visit this year! Having lost our Dad at Christmas, this trip was always going to be difficult.

That said………..

As always, the accommodation was superb, the fishing amazing with 3 PB’s and Marion’s cooking just out of this world.

Pete again got us straight on the fish very quickly, so a great trip – only sad that Dad missed this one after 6 previous trips.

Thanks Jason and Dean.

Ditto, ditto ditto………..we missed Phil a lot this time around, but good to see the two brothers enjoying the trip and catching 37 fish between them. RIP Phil!


A lovely stay in superb accommodation in these very strange times. The fishing was excellent for Mike (the expert) Dave and Kate.

With the warm weather the fishing was mostly mornings and early/late evenings. The remainder of the time was in the pool with the children. Libby and Alexander loved talking to the dogs and cats and they both caught their first fish in the little stream by the bridge using a small rod and float and fishing sweetcorn.

Many thanks and hope to see you again soon.

Mike, Kate, Dave, Jan, Libby and Alexander.


Michelle, Brian and Arrie – Second visit and again WOW! Marion and Pete are such amazing hosts, Cannot wait to return again – such a fantastic location with beautiful surroundings.

Courtney, Terry and Harper – Our first visit with Michelle and Brian and it was an amazing weeks holiday. Marion was great and even made our daughter a birthday cake for her 1st birthday along with some nice gifts. Very thankful and would highly recommend.


Thank you for another great trip!!!! (lost count of the total number).

Great hosts and friends. Fishing wasn’t bad in the end as well after a very slow start. 40’s, 50’s and a new lake record of 62.0 lbs.

Love Mark and Terry

PS See you March 2020
