Villedieu Lake

Nestled in the Haute Vienne is a new idyllic carp lake of 18 acres with a good stock of beautiful carp up to 59lb, surrounded by beautiful nature and countryside. Paul and Kelly Copperwaite have been the owners of Villedieu Lake since 2019 and have since been upgrading the complex to host the first guests in 2023. The lake has a beautiful jagged shape and they do their utmost to preserve the natural character of the lake and the environment as much as possible. Of course there are neat toilets, showers and a wooden lodge, called “The Lookout”, at your disposal during your stay.

Villedieu Lake

Rated 5.0 out of 5
5 May 2023


Allereerst de beheerders Paul en Kelly zijn aardige beheerders met hun hart op de juiste plaats en zijn behulpzaam.

Het water is een mooi water waar je wel moet werken om een karper(s) te vangen. Maar dat vindt ik juist zo mooi.

Ook de stekken zijn mooi aangelegd en ruim. Zelf mij ridge monkey had de ruimte.

Ook zijn er op de stekken een wc aanwezig. Wat toch wel handig is.

Ook de hut waar je zou kunnen koken is mooi en schoon en dat geld ook voor de douche echt heel mooi

De karpers zijn punt gaaf en erg sterk.

Mijn top vissen waren dik 30 plus en 40 plus.

Ik zou wel nog meer woorden kunnen schrijven.

Als je van uitdaging houdt.

Is het echt een aanrader.

Ik zeg gewoon doen.
