"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."

Really recommend this site. The owners could not be more helpful. You even get pre ordered bread and croissant delivered in the morning. They have just upgraded the wifi as well.
Pitches are huge, and it quiet and restful. Returned after a visit 2 years ago and still as good.

Lovely little camp, well-run by a friendly laidback Dutchman. Everything spotless. Village nearby for basics, nearest supermarket with cheap fuel at St Junien. Quiet by day and starry by night. Good for a stopover or a longer stay (pool, bar/cafe). The only downside was the lack of sufficient shade in temps of 35C. Otherwise recommended.

A very pleasant stay here. the pitches are very large and well kept. the owners could not be more helpful, would use again if in area, only one small niggle, and common to many French sites, no toilet paper!

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.

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.

An excellent, well maintained and friendly site with large placements. Good surrounds, able to walk/cycle into local village with shops and cafés and very near Limoges and Oradour sur Glanne. Owners offer a communal meal twice a week which was lovely and morning bread orders are delivered to your door. Good sanitary block but lost one point as no toilet paper supplied. Would definitely recommend this site.

Dutch owned site with some enormous pitches – grassy, hedged and level. Wifi to pay – but couldn’t get on.
Lots of Brits on site whilst we were there – Rotarian Rally. New toilet block with warmish showers, no toilet paper. Walk to plan d’eau down the road with lots of frogs, manmade beach too, swimming possible.

This is a unique and beautiful site, very welcoming. It isn\'t often if ever that the site owner shows you to your pitch. The pitches themselves are absolutely huge, and any ordered bread etc is delivered to your pitch each morning. The toilet block is well maintained. I would however prefer if toilet paper was supplied rather than having to bring ones own! This is a great site for visiting Oradour sur Glane, which is well worth a visit; it is very poignant. I would definitely recommend visiting the Visitor Centre firstly, (well worth the admission fee) as this sets the whole atrocity in historical context, and adds to the subsequent visit to the town. I found it a very moving experience.
