About Tournesol, France
The ideal family location with lovely accommodation and great fishing, the water is just under 4 acres in size and is set amidst 18 hectares of private grounds.
The exact stock of the lake is unknown but there are some stunning Mirror, Common and Grass carp to target to over the 40lb mark as well as some cracking Roach, Tench and Pike to have a go at, giving a great mix of angling options. The water at averages around 8 feet in depth with no specific marked out pegs instead it has well-kept lawned areas that you can fish from. The lake bed is a mix of light and heavy silt with no snags or weed to worry about, making it great for getting children or less experienced anglers involved knowing there not going to get snagged up whilst playing a fish.
The foundations of Tournesol date from the 13th century and belong to Les Hospitaliers de Saint Jean de Jerusalem, rebuilt in the 16th century. Among the lords of Flavignac there were several disputes with the lords of Les Cars, where the writings can be found at the Templars in Limoges (Limoges was an important stronghold of the Templars). The most recent renovation dates from the 70s, to which Tournesol owes its current view. The Belgian owner and his family have fallen in love with the Tournesol area with the streams that flow over the complex and gather into the big water. This has created a family business where the son has become the manager of this beautiful complex.

Tournesol is classified as a family or group location. When you rent the lake you have the entire water for yourself to fish including the accommodation. The water is known for its beautiful carp, making it a well-known mixed payment water in France. The water is about 2 meters deep, the depth can change slightly because the streams rise or the large water. In some places you have various grassy cuttings that you can fish from. The owner also offers a boat that you can use (at your own risk). Tournesol is nice for static fishing, but in between it is also very nice to bring a fixed pole or 5 meters. Small hand-sized carp and roach are swimming. Which is very nice to fish in between. The fixed pole will not be seen as an extra rod.
There is a karting track about 3 km from Tournesol, a challenging trip for the whole family. And at a distance of 10 km there is a surprising park where you can climb like monkeys between trees at a height of 9 meters, or course with the help of a safety harness. Here is also a lake for swimming and a playground for the young children.
Or do you prefer a 12 km long railway excursion, a journey to dream of! It takes you through the beautiful nature of the French countryside, REALLY A MUST!
Maybe a visit to the local zoo (Parc du Reynou), just 20 km from your residence. A little further away, about 45 km away, is a lake for water skiing, suitable for beginners and advanced skiers. Lessons available for children for reasonable prices. In short, plenty to do for the whole family.
