We at St Amand aim to provide you with the opportunity to plan your holiday to best suit you in our spectacular surroundings. We provide a beautiful established 4.5 acre lake along with a stunning house for your stay at St.Amand. There is on-site help and advise available from Christophe our site manager.

Our primary leisure activity is based around fishing mainly for carp with many fish up to 56lb. Our focus is on bringing the fun back to fishing and providing our clients with the best possible service.
You can Drive, or you can get a cheap flight through Ryan Air, then rent a car or we can arrange for transport to pick you up and bring you to St Amand. The journey from the airport is a realistic 45 minutes, what you will notice straight away is the regions diversity because although Limoges can be considered a place of city proportions with all its culture and attractions, only 20 miles further you will find yourself in a totally rural setting, surrounded by vast hills and very open landscapes, a perfect remote place to unwind and relax but not so remote that a night out on the town is not possible. You can then rent tackle on site if you are interested in fishing without the hassle of bringing all your own.

Total cost for House & Lake for 2 anglers + 2 non-anglers includes a bait package 12.50Kg crushed maize prepared, 10Kg of 15mm carp pellet & 10Kg of boilies) is £1450

Costings for additional anglers/non-anglers. Please call 01635 821625 to book additional people on to your party.

Per additonal angler: £300
Per additional non-angler: £150


The 4.5 acre spring fed lake has a large stock of carp 200+ fish between 20lb-56lb, and it being in a valley lends a hand to its flourishing Eco-system. Come rain or shine naturally occurring springs gently enter the lake from different areas, this encourages the wide variety of trees and wild flowers to grow in abundance. It’s a perfect place to watch many different fauna go about there daily business. The area is simply breathtaking with some amazing views all around the lake, along with some beautiful carp.
With the lake is included a 4 bedroom 3 story stone built house that can sleep up to 10 people with the lake holding a maximum of 6\7 anglers.

Established lake with top quality fishing alongside family accommodation at an affordable price.

St Amand is a beautiful hamlet in the Creuse region of South West France. This area is renowned for its rich countryside, stunning landscape and varied leisure activities for all. The lake at St Amand is 4.5 acres and was created over 50 years ago, but has never had any fishing pressure, although we are opening as a new venue its make up is well established as we have owned the lake since 2007. At which time we drained the lake, cleared all snags and positioned and built comfortable swims covering many different underwater features, ie deep holes, bars and plateaus, stalking bays etc. The lake its self is surrounded by open fields, hills and forest, with no background noise to speak of, giving you the chance to really unwind and to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible, we offer you the perfect backdrop to make your stay here truly memorable. We have a large stock of over 250+ Carp between 20lb-56lb so you can expect some great action.
There are at least 5 strains of carp in the lake so you will find all different shapes and sizes gracing your net regularly, something which we are very proud of.

Our 170 year old stone built house is only 400 meters away from the private fishing lake. Views from the upper levels of house are simply breathtaking. There is room for up to 10 people with shower and toilet facilities, a large open plan Farmhouse kitchen with Butler sink, gas oven with hob, fridge/freezer, microwave,  Living room with satellite TV, leather sofas, dining table and 6 chairs, wood burner x 2 , 4 x double bedrooms, all include wardrobes, bed side table, chest of drawers and reading lamp.

Costings for additional anglers/non-anglers. Please call 01455 220390 to book additional people on to your party.

Per additonal angler: £200
Per additional non-angler: £100

This house was built 170 years ago, but is and has been maintained to a high standard, with many original features, for a truly authentic French experience,you may wonder as to the actual size of it, to say its large is fair. This is a Traditional stone built house with comfortable beds and everything else you would expect to find in top rate accommodation. With three spacious floors the views are breath-taking, rolling hills with clear skies you can see for miles. Although the house is only used for rental accommodation, we have endeavored to incorporate a homely environment, your home from home.

Fly and fish is a relatively new concept that does provide a truly hassle free holiday, especially as travel time and cost can be greatly reduced, flight time 1hour 10 minutes from Stansted, £80.00 average return flight if booked in advance and out of holiday season. Do not under estimate how much easier flying to the venue makes your journey, although many have driven previously more often than not they have returned the next year via plane fresh and ready to fish on arrival.

If you fly to Limoges you can then rent a car or we can arrange for transport to pick you up and bring you to St Amand. The journey from the airport is a realistic 45 minutes and we have all the tackle you need for rental at the venue.

We have a selection of quality boilies (frozen) and also pellets and various particles for sale on site.

We offer the following for rental:

Rods 12ft Chub 2.75lb & 3 lb Test Curve, bedchairs and chairs, Armadillo type shelters (Chub & Nash), Fox Buzzers, Bank sticks, Landing nets, Unhooking mats, weigh sling, scales, used sleeping bags.
