Natures Retreat is a French holiday home in an authentic traditional French farmhouse set in the heart of the Limousin region of France. 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 to 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, hot tub and a bespoke 2-acre French carp lake with fish in excess of 57lb set in 12 acres of the 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 there are in excess of 70 carp ranging from the high teens to way over the 50lb mark.
The largest out so far this year has been a shade over 57lb. 2024 is going to be a blast, we believe our new management and feeding regime will pay dividends !
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 feed 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 most 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 mid 30s. A Significant number of 40s have been out as well as several of the 50 plus ones. There is more to come !
There is still plenty of time this year to break the lake record given the right tactics and patience.
Come visit us, try your skills!
