VIP Package


At l'Etang de la Carpe d'Or, The Golden Carp Lake, we aim to cater for the serious carp anglers as well as their family.

Being a family of five, with a husband that fishes, a wife that doesn't, and three small children that do and don't (!), we have identified, and experienced, the potential difficulties in combining the two.

The VIP Package is, we think, the ideal solution. So, what's the deal?

The Anglers:

Up to six anglers get unlimited, and exclusive, use of our entire lake and its facilities, which include the newly-built top-notch double swims on the VIP Bank.

All tackle for the week (excluding reels, bite alarms, hangers, end tackle, leads, and line - check out our Tackle section) is supplied free of charge, as is use of the boats and oars (electric motors and batteries availiable for a small supplement).

Then there's "The Lodge", with its fully-equipped kitchen and BBQ, covered and cooled (via two ceiling fans) seating and eating area, fridge, beer pump, freezer, WiFi and, along with the shower and toilet facilities (with facilities for wheelchair users), the all-important widescreen TV - perfect for socialising and relaxing while catching some monster French carp!

We also offer several tuition packages (with qualified fishing guide and instructor, and Nash Tackle Consultant, Barry Sewell) covering topics including the basics of rig tying, advanced rigs, baiting techniques, and improving casting distance and accuracy. Packages and prices tailored to suit your needs, so get in touch.

That's the anglers sorted, what about the friends, wives and kids?

The Family:

Up to six guests have exclusive use of our two-bedroomed cabin, situated in the heart of the "almost-island", which currently sleeps four adults and two children. It has basic toilet and shower facilities, as well as a functional kitchen with gas-hob, microwave, etc. A mobile air-conditioning unit, as well as fans, are available during the warmer months.

Fridges and cupboards stocked with the essentials are included in the package.

There is an outside, undercover seating and eating area, and sun loungers are provided.

We can provide linen and towels upon request for an additional cost.

WiFi is also included.

A widescreen TV and DVD player, as well as Sky TV, a PS3 games console, and Wifi access are provided to keep the kids entertained in the evening (or for those wishing to "check-up" on Eastender's or Corrie over a glass of wine!)

The nearest supermarket is only 2 minutes away.

Should you wish to have a day out, then Mareuil, Brantôme, Angouleme, and Périgueux are within a 10-40 minutes of the lake, and offer a varied range of activities for all. Check out this page for more info!

For those wanting the ultimate VIP experience, we offer a "catering inclusive" package, which includes freshly-prepared breakfast and evening meals on site for the duration of your stay! Prices and menus (tailored to suit your budget, diet, and party size) arranged upon request.

So if you fancy exclusive and private use of a 5 hectare fully-stocked lake and all of it's facilities and 'mod-cons", for you and up to 11 others (maximum 6 anglers) for a week or even longer, then book your "VIP Package" today!!

The package price does not include flights.

Transfers to and from Bergerac (1H40 drive) or Limoges (1H30 drive) for a maximum of four people are included, additional guest transfers can be arranged for an additional fee, and are subject to availability.
