Welcome to Etang de Cherpont, one of the friendliest carp fisheries and premiere waters in France. Cherpont is set in the rolling hills of the Limousin region in central France and was created in the early 19th century. Cherpont is a 39-acre, river-fed, mature lake, in a peaceful, secluded setting with tree lined banks and beautiful views of the surrounding hills and countryside.


The average weight is 33lbs and the lake record is 71lbs. There are around 20 fish over 50lbs and there is a good chance of achieving a PB. A maximum of 16 anglers can fish at anyone time and choose from 21 swims - so there is always somewhere to move if you fancy a change of scenery.


We have a choice of holiday packages to suit your needs. An on-site restaurant catering for all your food requirements. The all inclusive package provides a full English breakfast and a two-course evening meal. For your comfort during your stay at Cherpont we have a tiled shower room, with a power shower and two toilets.


Here at Cherpont you have the opportunity to have the fishing holiday of a lifetime and the chance of catching your PB. This is your chance to fish for big carp in beautiful surroundings, in a totally relaxed atmosphere where you can just sit back and enjoy yourself.
