Barry Stockdale, on this campsite in July 2014

We chose to stay here because it was in an area we have never visited before and it was a Castels site.

Location
The site is well located for visiting Limoges, Brantome, Oradour sur Glane and Piegut. Lovely area with rolling hills.

Reception
There was a warm welcome from the owner upon arrival. Check in was easy and we were allowed to select our own pitch. Staff speak very good English and are very helpful. In addition to information about walks in the area you can also borrow a very thick ring binder with lots of information, in English, about the area, nature, shopping etc. A great idea.

Pitches
The pitches are marked and most quite large. We stayed at the back of the site in the ‘calm area’. Pitches here are huge. Some families erected several tents. The grounds are extremely well maintained, eg cut grass and pruned hedges. Wherever you go you will not feel hemmed in. It feels a bit like a caravan club site.

Sanitary Facilities
There are two blocks. We were located near the older block which to be honest needs to be completely refurbished but… it was reasonably clean and serviceable.

Shop
There is a small shop selling the basics including fresh baguettes and pastries every morning.

Pools
There is a medium swimming pool which has plenty of sun beds and was kept very clean and tidy.

Eating
The on-site restaurant has a good menu and the quality of the food is good.

WiFi
Free wifi access around the patio area near reception.

Animations
There were activities for children most days, but these were low key. During the high season there are evening events including a small market and a barbecue with a live group.

Other Stuff
There’s a large children’s playground plus a games field.

Summary
We loved this site. I understand that the present owner took over the site quite recently. From reading other reviews the previous owners were quite popular. Well the new owners seem to be maintaining the quality. Not perhaps as outgoing as the previous owners but they seem to be making improvements.

Ce camping gagnerait en qualité à mon sens en développant des espaces délimités et surtout aplanis, sa situation sur une colline ou la pente est restée naturelle ne permet que peu de situations à l'horizontal.

Leuke camping. Barbecue-avond was goed verzorgd en we genoten van de Franse live muziek. Hele ruime kampeerplaatsen. Leuke fietstocht met fiets georganiseerd voor kinderen.
