You have had to brave a few hundred kilometres, and done a lot of driving across the country! We know you'll arriving chomping at the bit, dreaming of getting your rods out. Rignac ... Bournazel ... and at last you can see the water ... Cavagnac ... and our magnificent lake full of carp, big Carp! Situated in the middle of nowhere, far from the city, the cars the noise, the stress ... in short: perfect paradise for fishing fanatics, or simply for those who are longing for a "break" in their busy life. If you're looking for a place to be at one with nature, peace and wildlife in a beautiful and relaxing place, you've come to the right place. Say goodbye to the stresses of the journey and day to day life - believe me, you're going to love it!

Arrival time must be after 11.30am and before 3pm. There is a parking area available outside the complex from 11.30am until lake opening time at 11.30am to 15.00pm.
