Campsite Le Vaurette is located on the northern bank of the Dordogne, near the village of Argentat. From the green campsite you have a view of the wooded hills, which border the Dordogne valley. Many Dutch campers will find a camping spot directly by the river or closer to the hills. The Dordogne is a source of entertainment for young and old.

At the small reception, which is next to a attractive bar, you will probably be welcomed by the daughter of the Dutch owner. Although she was born and raised in France, she speaks Dutch pretty well.

Camping on the Dordogne

The gently flowing Dordogne on one side, hills covered with forests on the other: the campsite Le Vaurette is situated on a beautiful spot in the Corrèze. There is a wide variety of touring pitches. They are all spacious and have a well-maintained grass surface, but the view from the pitches is different everywhere. From some places you look out over the fields. Other touring pitches are in the shade of tall trees, which form the beginning of the surrounding hills. You can also camp directly on the Dordogne, under low hanging trees.

Swimming pool

The swimming pool is surrounded by shrubs and the benevolent green of the wooded hills, but is itself in a sunny spot. The whole family can enjoy a cool dip here: children splash around in the spacious paddling pool or the shallow part of the pool, while the parents can also sunbathe in a deck chair. The area is beautifully decorated with rocks, thatched parasols and flowers.

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Entree oogt beetje rommelig en m’n vrouw twijfelde, maar blij dat we toch voor deze camping gekozen hebben. Fijne camping aan de Dordogne, een camping zoals die hoort te zijn. Camping is mooi groen, maar ook open. Ruime plaatsen. Aan de Dordogne zelf het meest populair en wat kleiner. We waren hier in de ‘Corona’ zomer dus iets rustiger en beperkt qua activiteiten. Maar genoten! Keuze tussen zwemmen in Dordogne (glibberige stenen) of heel fijn ruim fris zwembad. Sanitair is niet nieuw, maar wordt heel goed schoongehouden. Goede warme douches, schone wc’s. Geen camping met veel entertainment etc maar gewoon waar die voor bedoeld is, lekker relaxen. De ligging is prachtig. Ligt naast een rustige weg en heeft prachtig uitzicht op de donkergroene heuvels langs de Dordogne. Een plaatje.

Het was een prima vakantie. Prachtige camping vlak aan de Dordogne. Wij zijn buiten het seizoen geweest in september, dan is er niets meer te doen, maar enorm goed om tot rust te komen met het kabbelen van de rivier. Het sanitair is wat verouderd aan de buitenzijde van sanitaire blok, maar het was zeer net. Ik heb dan liever een beetje verouderd sanitair dan een modern en niet onderhouden. Jammer vonden wij het ook dat je alleen een snack kon krijgen in de bistro. Verder heel vriendelijke mensen. We komen hier zeker nog terug. Ook kwam er elke dinsdag en vrijdag een lokale beenhouwer met zeer lekker vlees. Zeker een aanrader.

Plekken aan het water zijn echt prachtig. De kinderen spelen volop in de Dordogne. Ze hebben zelfs een mini waterbaan gemaakt, waar ze met een band vanaf kunnen. Winkeltje is s’morgen en s’middags open waar je brood en andere benodigdheden kan halen.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - Klein, gemoedelijk, heerlijke geur (zelfs bij t sanitair) en geluiden van vogels en de Dordogne. Kampvuur kon je elke avond met elkaar regelen. Gedateerd maar schoon sanitair, goede harde en warme douches. sAvonds op tijd rustig op de camping en smorgens kunnen uitslapen ;-) Animatie zeer geschikt voor iets oudere kinderen, vanaf ongeveer 8 jaar. Elke avond een andere sport, gezellig, geen storende muziek oid.
Disliked - Ehhhh, als je negatieve dingen zou moeten noemen: bijna geen 3/4g bereik, wel gratis WiFi rond de receptie, geen echt restaurant op de camping, beperkte openingstijden v alles eigenlijk. Zwembad zou minstens een uur langer open moeten zijn. Ik heb persoonlijk geen hardlooprondje kunnen ontdekken, langs de weg vond ik te gevaarlijk.

Een mooie camping aan de rivier, waar in je ook kan zwemmen, dobberen en met de hond kan spelen. Jeugd vanaf een jaar of 12 heeft het hier zeker fantastisch en jongere kinderen ook. Zwembad is ok. Sanitair wat ouder maar zeker schoon. Brood te koop in de camping winkel

Mooie camping met over het algemeen grote plaatsen. Vriendelijk en zeer behulpzaam personeel. Niet zo grote kampwinkel en dat is jammer, want de dichtstbijzijnde supermarkt is 6 km verderop. Veel activiteiten voor kinderen, goede begeleiding. Georganiseerde sportwedstrijden.
Sanitair wat gedateerd, maar schoon. Op de gemengde toiletten hangt desinfectiemiddel voor de toiletbril.

Le Vaurette is een uitstekende camping en een absolute aanrader voor zon, schaduw, ruimte, ligging, vriendelijkheid, etc.

Dutch-French management."
