    • The motto of the Etangs du Bos for a successful holiday : "Carpe Diem"

      Here, you can devote yourself to your favourite hobby, fishing but also enjoy the magnificent historical and prehistoric heritage by visiting Les Grottes de Lascaux, Sarlat, Domme, Beynac...

      Périgord offers a great diversity : culture, gastronomy, sports or more relaxed leisure activities!

      Our site is dedicated to lovers of nature and calm, two criteria that particularly appeal to fishermen (without any need to have a fishing card).

      You can also choose to stay in our accommodation which is close to the ponds.

      One has an area of about 7000 m² (the fishing pond, 2 to 6 metres deep), the other a little more than one hectare, (4 to 11.50 metres deep and also intended for swimming, pedal boats and electric boats) but only in high season. Outside the summer period, this 2nd pond is available to fishermen in its entirety.

      Since the creation of these two ponds, the ARS (Regional Health Agency) has been monitoring water quality and the results classify them in the category of "very good water quality", probably linked to the springs that feed them in spring and provide water renewal.

      This protected and green nature has enabled the Dordogne basin to be classified by UNESCO (during the summer of 2012) as a World Network of Biosphere Reserves. This label is awarded to sites that have a high environmental richness and preserve their natural balance.

      To conclude, the majority of fishermen agree to practice "no kill", this measure is not imposed but this state of mind is very much appreciated. Fishermen release their catches, trying to do so in the best possible conditions, so that the fish is not injured and generally using hooks designed to avoid damaging the mouth of the fish (for this purpose, there are barbless hooks)... This is in fact another more ecological philosophy that increasingly appeals to another type of fisherman.

    Off the beaten track but worth the journey. A lovely selection of swimming pools and the inflatable course on the lake. When we arrived it was quiet and you could go on for as long and as many times as you wanted to. You are given a lifejacket so fine for weaker swimmers too. Later, it was busier so sessions were timed and you had 30 minutes - more than enough for one slot as it's pretty tiring but great fun! There are also small water cars and baby slides, trampolines, mini golf and other water slides for older kids/ adults and a playground with inflatable slide. There are sun loungers dotted around and basic facilities. We paid e12 for adults and 10 for kids and this got access to everything. The cafe sells the usual snacks and drinks. A good day out and definitely cheaper ( and warmer!) than doing at home in the UK.

    Kids had a grat time doing the water activities. Facilities are ok with plenty of shade. Only down side is I picked up a mild eye infection from swimming in the lake.

    Cheap to get into but a great day none the less. The lake opens at about 1pm and has 30min slots so I would recommend getting there for then and then booking a slot for whatever time you wish as they do fill up later on. The pools are good but felt unsafe being that it's like a 3 metre deep pool with one lifeguard. Our group had to save 3 children from drowning because the lifeguard was not looking. But it's not her fault, they just need more staff. For that pool. The little French kids like to push past you on the queue. They don't seem to understand and the French people were just letting it happen. Just block their path and yell at them in English and they'll stop. Overall a cheap day out and for what it is, definitely worth a trip.

    I visited twice last summer with my children 10 and 12 years old. Relaxed with water assault course, water slides, bar and picnic tables. Not busy. Good fun recommended and we'll be back this summer!
