Within walking distance of the town of Thiviers, in a park-like area, you will find the quiet family camping Le Repaire. The camping site is close to a lake with a sandy beach where you can swim. Guests are very impressed with this beautifully located camping site with great facilities. A special feature of this camping site (9 ha in size) is that pilgrims like to spend the night here in a 'pilgrims refuge': it is located on the road from Vézelay to Santiago de Compostella.
At Le Repaire you have a choice between spacious pitches (120-150 m2), on grassland and demarcated with small hedges. Poplars, oaks, cherries and pine trees provide ample shade or somewhat less shade. Several wooden rental homes can be rented as well.
Entertainment for all
The heated swimming pool (150 m2) is partly covered with a sliding roof. There is a separate toddler pool. There is a table tennis table and a jeu-de-boule pitch. Competitions are organised here on a regular basis. You can borrow rackets, balls and shuttles from the reception. A small fee is payable for billiards as well as for the tennis court at the nearby Nantheuil recreational lake. At this lake, complete with sandy beaches and lawns, part of the water has been sectioned off. Therefore, children can safely swim here. There is a lovely playground. The camping site also has its own playground. In the recreation area lovely activities are organised twice weekly in English and French.
Dancing on summer evenings
In summer great activities such as rock concerts, dance evenings, theme evenings and kids parties are regularly organised on the terrace.

Having been on many of your campsites over the past years and have never been let down by the quality and service of them all we thought that we owed it to your company to report our experiences of two days ago.
We stayed at Le Repaire ar Thiviers and can only describe it as disgraceful. I am sure you would not like to be associated with it if you knew of the conditions......we name but a few.
No locks on some of the toilet doors
Mess all over the place around the washing machine which was extremely old.
The showers had rotten wood and tiles on the walls. How old they were was anyone’s guess.
The light switch for the showers was INSIDE the shower cubicle
The outside washing up area had not been cleaned since last season by look of it and had massive cockroaches in the sink.
They took an order for our bread for the morning and we were still trying to get it at 9.30 a m
A few drain covers were broken leaving open spaces.
The above will certainly not stop us using ACSI as we have been more than pleased for many many years. We just thought that it was only fair to you to report this campsite.

Liked - Friendly staff, nice location
Liked - L'environnement nature, le calme, la propreté
Disliked - L'emplacement qui manquait d'intimité, le manque d'entretien du terrain de jeux
Family group with two 4 year olds and Grand Parents and were in VW Campervans. The site was perfect for us with flat pitches and water and loos in close proximity. The shop was a bit small but local to the site are Thiviers and several Supermarkets The entertainment in the evenings was good and the Food in the restaurant was very good. The site provided every thing for us that we wanted but the locale has so much to offer that we did not need the main tourist attractions of the Main Dordogne region that was still within reach if we had wanted to go there. Excellent site that if in the UK would be top rated and not too expensive either.
