Getting Here


L'Etang de la Carpe d'Or, the Golden Carp Lake, is situated just outside of the village of Vieux-Mareuil (24340), in the Périgord Vert region of the Dordogne, France.

For those flying over, the following airports are within a comfortable drive of the lake (pick-ups can be arranged for Bergerac and Limoges-Bellegarde Airports):

  • Bergerac Airport (Ryanair from Stansted, East Midlands, Bristol or Liverpool) 1H15mn
  • Limoges-Bellegarde Airport (Ryanair from Stansted, Bristol, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford or Liverpool) 1H20mn
  • Brive-Souillac Airport (Ryanair from London Stansted) 1H40mn
  • Bordeaux-Merignac Airport (Ryanair from Stansted; Easyjet from Luton, Gatwick, Bristol or Liverpool) 1H50mn

For those preferring to drive over from the UK, we are only 7 short hours away from Calais, a small price to pay for the trip (and hopefully the fish) of a lifetime!
