Etang D'or

Set in the heart of the Limousine region of France, Etang D'or is a totally secluded private lake. Being 5.5 acres in size and totally surrounded by acres of treelined meadow, it ensures that you are not overlooked by houses or roads. With its mainly gravel bottom and two natural water supplies feeding the lake, it makes the perfect habitat for big Carp and Cats. The lake opened in April 2004 and has been a successful season. To compliment its original stock of between Two hundred and Two hundred and fifty Carp, we have added another ninety Carp with weights up to 30lbs. Fourteen catfish were also added up to 30 lbs January 2005 saw an additional stock of carp introduced which consisted of 3 x 28.5 lbs, the rest were between 31 lbs up to 36 lbs +. Also added at this time were 6 Catfish between 41 lbs and 98lbs.

  • Secluded private Lake not overlooked
  • two natural water supplies
  • Gravel bottom

In 2007 I unfortunately suffered a serious injury to my neck and needed surgery which forced me to close the lake. Because of the injury I sustained i was put in a position where I needed a business partner, This was made possible in 2011 and since then the lake has taken on a transformation, bringing it back to its natural glory along with the new (30 year) license. To compliment the existing stock in February 2012 will see an introduction of new Carp from 34lbs to 48lbs
