Fishing at the Domaine

Calling all fishing enthusiasts! Get to enjoy your favourite pastime without any guilt while the rest of your family swim in the pool, enjoy the water slides, join in the activities – and generally have an unforgettable holiday!


Carp, roach...


The Domaine de l’Etang de Bazange, with its 7 acre stretch of water, is a favourite with fishermen who like to fish for carp and roach. We found carp of up to 10kg the last time we emptied the lake.

Kids will love to learn to fish in our lake.


And then there are the crayfish !


There have been loads of crayfish in the lake for as long as we can remember – if you catch them (and you can!), you can eat as many as you like.

Last year, one of our visiting fishermen caught about 100 crayfish every day! We can make a net available, or you may have your own foolproof methods…

And you don’t need a fishing licence!

River Fishing

If you prefer river fishing, there are two Category 2 rivers nearby – the Dordogne and the Isle. They are stocked with white fish (roach, bream, bleak...), carnivorous fish (pikeperch, pike, perch...) and migratory fish like shad.


The diverse network of waterways in the Dordogne region is an attraction to all fishermen – both new and experienced – who want to fish on holiday.
