In the heart of the French Dordogne, Camping La Chatonnière is set in a beautiful location right by the water. There is a private sandy beach and you can swim in the river. You can enjoy a delicious meal in the pizzeria. The castle village of Jumilhac-le-Grand is just one and a half kilometres from the campsite.

Spacious, quiet pitches

You can feel the space as soon as you drive up to your pitch. Because of the difference in height, the site consists of two parts. Here you will find beautiful spots for your tent, caravan or motor home. On the lower part, the pitches are close to the river. All the pitches offer privacy and are landscaped with bushes and trees. You can also spend the night in a robust safari tent or a nicely furbished mobile home among the greenery.

Swimming and playing in the river

Looking for some refreshment on hot days? Go paddle in the river, which is near the campsite. The water is fairly shallow and both the water and the beach on the bank are great places for children to splash around and play. The sunbathing area has shade and a shower. This is also where the canoes are moored after a trip on the river.

Plenty of entertainment for children

Doing crafts, feeding the pigs, archery or performing at the fun evening? Camping La Chatonnière organises it all for young campers in the high season. Want to go hiking? Various trails leave from the site. Prefer to go cycling? Then hire a bicycle on the campsite, but bear in mind that the surroundings are hilly.
