Overview

the region around Beynac Lake is located in the Dordogne department of southwestern France.

The Dordogne is best known for its beautiful natural scenery, with vast forests, beautiful river valleys and picturesque medieval villages. It’s part of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, which is famous for its world-class wines and cuisine.

Not far from Beynac Lake is the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord Limousin, a beautiful natural park that spans the Dordogne and Haute-Vienne departments. It’s a great place for hiking and observing wildlife.

The region is also home to a number of historic sites. The town of Saint-Saud-Lacoussière, near which Beynac Lake is located, is a charming place with a beautiful church and some lovely old buildings. Further afield, you can visit the historic town of Périgueux, which has a well-preserved Roman amphitheatre and a beautiful cathedral.

In terms of local gastronomy, the Dordogne is renowned for its duck and goose products, truffles, and walnuts. You can’t leave without trying a piece of the famous foie gras or a slice of walnut cake.

Please remember, while you’re exploring the local areas, your primary focus should be on the carp fishing experience provided by Majestic Carp. Enjoy your trip, and don’t forget to take a break from fishing to soak up the stunning natural beauty and cultural richness of the Dordogne!
