It is just a 35 minute drive from Limoges airport. Situated centrally in an area of outstanding natural beauty it is the perfect base to explore the region whilst catering for the needs of the family and fisherperson alike. There is something here for all. This is your opportunity to enjoy your own exclusive French Country Farmhouse with swimming pool and a bespoke 2 acre French carp lake set in 12 acres of wild French countryside. This is the location for a fantastic family holiday to remember. Building on the initial desire to create the perfect lake, significant work was carried out early 2010’s with the headland separating the smaller lakes being removed and a central island being formed along with additional ‘swims’. Since that time regular stocking has been taking place and it is believed that there are approximately 70 good sized carp ranging from the high teens to over the 50lb mark. This year the largest out, so far, has been a shade over 47lb. That having been said that was shortly after spawning so we are anticipating more ! At Natures Retreat we are fanatical about the type and quality of the feed and bait being used on our water. We only feed with high quality Scretting feed imported from the UK and only allow the use of fresh or frozen baits. This approach has been giving the anglers here some fantastic results over the past year with many beating their personal bests and catching hard fighting pristine specimens. Catches from the lake this year so far have been good with the average weights being in the mid to high twenties but with a good number of 30 plus being caught as well. A dozen or so 40s have been out already however the really big fish have been elusive of late, probably due to the very high temperatures and the upsetting tornado that came through recently. There is still plenty of time this year to break the lake record given the right tactics and patience. Come visit us and try your skills !More
