Relaxed and tranquil, ideal for history, prehistory and nature lovers
The friendliness and traditional family camping style of this peaceful site are what draw members back to this site above the Vézère valley, near some of the finest prehistoric caves and troglodyte villages. The site's modern facilities are set in woodland on a small hillside, 300 yards from the River Vézère, with its fishing, canoeing and little river beach. Close by are many of the unique prehistoric dwellings, paintings and sculptures for which the Dordogne is world renowned. The fortified cliffside cave house at Reignac is just down the road, while the troglodyte dwellings just three miles away at La Roque-St.-Christophe are fascinating, with plenty more prehistoric and natural wonders to explore in the area.

Very warm welcome from the very friendly owners,Gilles was the perfect host with a relaxed and easy going demeanor,his wife was also very helpfull and approachable.
On arrival we were offered choice of two pitches(the only two empty!).Very much "Hobsons choice" but we picked what we believed to be most suitable.The site is described as being on a hillside,that is certainly accurate!.Glad I was not at the top of the site as path down to and back from facilities would have been very excercising!
Access to and pitching on the emplacement can best be described as challenging,motor mover essential for most pitches and definitely for mine! We entertained several Belgians with our pitching as they felt I was trying the impossible.Big units will struggle to get on pitches which were smaller than usual for France and grass was absent from most pitches and hard rock pegs required for awnings.
This sounds very negative but you need to be prepared for what you get.
Bar and restaurant were very good with a large terrace and plenty of seating.Sanitary facilities were clean and adequate given the site was full.Pool small and very few sunbeds and seating.Water slide enters main pool so do not expect a quiet and orderly swim.
There had clearly been heavy rain prior to our visit and some campers had dug trenches around their units!I would imagine a typical Dordogne thunderstorm would create several small streams down through the site.All pitches are shaded with full cover of trees,suited us at the time as it was very hot.
Great location for major attractions,particularly the caves and pre-history sites.Canoe trip down the Vezere great fun but 26km on a hot day was testing!
Easy access to Dordogne valley via St.Cyprien with all the great locations to hand.This is the best feature of this location and it was well run and very friendly.The fact the site was full despite being prior to main season speaks for itself.
