Hired a 2 bedded chalet. It was not particularly clean and the bedding was poor quality and looked grubby. Wi fi only available in bar area or reception. We were early in the season and the site had been flooded the previous week so very few people on site.

The camping is well situated in the center of the Dordogne, close to Sarlat. We’ve been here several times for some weeks, and every time we ‘re looking back at a nice vacation. You can visit all kinds of places within an hour. Also the possibility of canoeing and biking makes this camping attractive. Owners are nice and speak very good English. They are always helpful. Sanitary is clean and completely renewed 3 years ago. There is also the possibility for swimming in the pool as well in the river. Bar and terrace are a good place for a drink and some food. There is also WIFI available. In short, a very good place for your vacation.

Good site for exploring Sarlat and surroundings. Had the impression though that the manager and his wife didn't feel like doing much at the end of the season. After dari no lights along the paths, no lights in washing up area. Baskets in toilets emptied once during a 5-night stay and NO CLEANING WHATSOEVER of the new toilet and shower facilities. Also parts of these facilities (like cubicles with washbasins) were blocked off, which created a lack of privacy.

Er is een nieuw en erg vriendelijk eigenaarsechtpaar (Engels sprekend). Het sanitairgebouw is grondig gerenoveerd ( nog niet helemaal af) en erg netjes. We zijn hier in het voorseizoen geweest (4 tm 22 juni.)
Mooie rustig gelegen camping.

Mooie rustige camping rechtstreeks gelegen aan de Dordogne. Mooi nieuw sanitair. De beheerders nemen tijd voor je. Vanaf de camping meteen op wandel- en fietspaden. Ligt mooi centaal om de Dordogne te verkennen.

Le camping n’est pas assez accueillant, il n’y a peu d’animation, les hais ne sont pas couper, les mobiles homes ne sont pas assez entretenue. Les douches sont mal équipées. Les allez sont petite et ne sont pas à sens unique.

Très bon camping si on recherche le calme et le confort. Camping familial. Petite plage très appréciable sur la rivière. Très bon accueil. Sanitaires propres et modernes. très bon point de départ des visites autour de Sarlat. je vous le conseille

Betreft een zeer rustige camping, je komt er helemaal tot rust. Het sanitair is verouderd maar goed onderhouden. De camping is gelegen aan de rivier en men kan een kano huren op de camping. kinderen kunnen er een ritje te paard maken. Brood, pizza en frietjes zijn er te verkrijgen. De eigenaars zijn zeer vriendelijk en spreken Nederlands.

Travelling party: Group of friends


Bijzonder vriendelijk beheerdersechtpaar (Nederlands/Frans).
Rustige ligging, geen doorgaande weg. Je hoort alleen de vogels fluiten en je medecampeerders in de omgeving. Kanotocht mogelijk direct vanaf de camping over zeer mooi deel van de Dordogne.
Ideaal startpunt voor maken van uitstapjes.
