"Cosy camp site in the natural park Périgord-Limousin at 25 km from Limoges. Spacious pitches, on the edge of the wood. Dutch owners. Ideal environment to relax, walk, swim, fish and discover this beautiful area. Table d'hôtes on monday and friday."

Loved this campsite. Friendly helpful owners. Large pitch. Good swimming pool with non slip surface on the steps. Cannot comment on showers or toilets as we prefer our own facilities but we would certainly use this peaceful site again. Handy for Limoges (which we found disappointing).

Having read reports of this being the best campsite in France we were initially diappointed. A rather parched field on a remote hill, outside a small village with little to offer. The martyr village of Oradour sur Glane is a drive away. Onsite, the unisex facilities are immaculate but only half were open; bring your own paper. The pool is small but good and the wifi free. One feature, however, makes this site special. We were lucky enough to be on site on a Monday. The owners provide a three course, communal meal at a long trestle table. The linguistic skills of the Dutch made this a delightful event.

Een geweldige camping met hele aardige eigenaren die je hartelijk ontvangen en persoonlijk de camping laten zien. De kampeerplekken zijn heel groot. De camping heeft een lekker zwembad om af te koelen. En verder ligt de camping vlakbij Oradour sur Glane. De kinderen hebben zich super vermaakt met de andere kinderen. Een absolute aanrader.

Nice camping located in an agricultural area within a short distance from Oradour-sur-Glane which we had planned to visit. Clean and well planned camp site with wonderful owners who really walk the extra mile for their customers. We had great tips and maps provided for our jogging and also other suggestions on things to do in the area. My only objection is the lack of paper and soap at the restrooms. I would so like to pay an extra if that was included.

Visited the site in September 2015 so many things were closed/not available as expected. The swimming pool was closed but looked attractive though may be a little small if site were full. Pitches are mostly larger than on many sites. Pitched a twin axle caravan without any problem. Pitches marked out with low hedges and fences. There are not many sites where your morning bread is delivered to the door or where the owner shows you around before you choose your pitch!
Really pleasant husband and wife team who are always available to help.
Toilet block is probably the cleanest we have ever seen. Although two years old the block looked as if it opened that week!!
Would certainly recommend it and will definitely return.
