Lac de la Grange is a secluded, rural retreat located
on the edge of the forest of Rochechouart in the Southwest Limousin
region of France. We have a private 6 acre fishing lake stocked
primarily with carp to 45lbs. Some silver fish, good tench and pike
are also present.
Fishing is exclusive to our guests who can choose to stay in our 4
bedroom/3 bathroom gite accommodation or bivvy around the lake. The
lake is just 10 metres from the gite entrance and is set up for a
maximum of 5 anglers.
Should you choose to bivvy then facilities are provided by the lake
for making hot drinks. There is also access to kitchen & bathroom
facilities plus electric sockets for charging phones, etc. We
provide breakfast and evening meals, if required, which can be

The lake is naturally spring fed and the depth of the
water varies from 2ft in the shallow edges to 26ft along the dam at
the western end. It has a silt bottom with very little weed and we
remove as much debris as possible, such as fallen branches, twice a
year to reduce the possibility of snags.
There are four fishing platforms plus some natural swims and great
coves where the fish love to bask in the sun. We allow 2 rods per
person and find that simple tactics and rigs are very effective.
Our lake is never over fished meaning the fish are in very good
condition and put up a tremendous fight. The ratio of mirror carp to
commons is 3 to 2 and we have some distinctive Limousin commons with
long powerful bodies plus many beautifully scaled mirrors.
Our gite and surroundings are designed for the comfort and
entertainment of the whole family, encouraging everyone to be
relaxed or active as the mood takes them. Providing wonderful
fishing opportunities day and night and plenty of space and
activities to keep the non-fishermen amused too.
