This charming 3 bedroom gite is located in the Foret de la Double and looks down over the 1½ acre lake which is well stocked with carp and coarse fish. At an extra charge, it is also possible to include our 7 acre specimen lake with carp in excess of 40lbs with your booking. Bait and fishing equipment can be provided, if required.
We are not aimed exclusively at fishing holidays - there are plenty of other things to do and see. Some people come to enjoy the lovely surroundings and take advantage of the peace and quiet and to have their own secluded holiday location. Artists, bird-watchers etc. also find it an ideal location to enjoy their hobby. There is also plenty of sight-seeing to be had in this Perigordian region as we are surrounded by vineyards, chateaux, historical towns etc.

This is our fourth time on our annual ‘blokes fishing trip’. We stayed for 5 nights at the gite and had the fully serviced package from a Greg and Nikki. Greg collected us from Bordeaux airport, provided all of the equipment and tackle. We fished both the Specimen and Jungle lakes. Plenty of BIG fish caught between us. The accommodation...

The gite and area was exactly as described on trip advisor and then some! the hosts Greg and Nikki are thoughtful and there if you need them (even saving us a table at the La Pizou market - a highly recommended Tuesday evening food market), but also give you the space to have the holiday you want. Wonderful holiday and...

About the neighborhood
Our local village is only small but has a very good bar/restaurant which offers a lunchtime or evening service. The lunchtime menu is excellent value and has a good selection of dishes, including the best chips you will ever taste! The owners speak fluent English and are happy to cater for vegetarians (with a bit of prior notice). There is also a boulangerie/village shop so freshly baked goods are always available, including croissants, chocolatines, pain au raisin, baguettes etc.
Getting around
The town of Montpon is 10 minutes away and has all the usual shops, banks etc. as well as a fishing tackle shop. There is a free leisure lake with sandy beach and you can book a canoe trip on the river. The market is held every Wednesday morning and has plenty of stalls offering a wide variety of food and local produce etc.In July & August there is a superb night market held every Tuesday by the flood-lit church in Le Pizou (about 10 mins away). The stalls are mainly food orientated and so the biggest decision is choosing what to eat - duck, snails, mussels, paella, roast pork, spit roast lamb stuffed with couscous......There is no entry fee even though there is live music and dancing. It is a truly French experience and highly recommended.
