Beautifully maintained site with huge, flat pitches separated by small hedges, some with shade. Very friendly owner who greets all visitors personally and shows them round the site. Twice a week (Mondays and Fridays) he and his wife organise a three course meal in the bar. Local village has two restaurants and a bar. Surrounding area is pretty but not spectacular. Limoges well worth a visit as is Oradour sur Glane. There are a number of Chateaux built by Richard the Lionheart in the area but most are closed until July/August.

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.

The owners (Dutch) are very friendly and multi-lingual. Most of the pitches are very large. An extremely peaceful site in the countryside. Emphasis is on peace and space. No good for kids.

We stayed here for 3 nights, we wanted to visit Oradour sur Glane and the campsite is perfect for this. The pitches are the biggest I have experianced and there will be a new toilet block for 2014 ( with toilet seats) the Dutch owners are very friendly and helpfull and do all they can to make your stay enjoyable. The site is quite a distance from the nearest village about a 40 minuet walk at a guess. We will use this site again next year especially if want to play golf.

Extremely friendly staff and good prices. Large pitches but only a little shade. The toilet door latches are unique but interesting when you learn how to use them. The lake shown though is not on the campsite but 1 kilometre away.

Lovely tidy campsite with very large pitches and new facility block. Owner greets all new arrivals. Bread delivered to each pitch is a bonus. Walks and cycle routes are provided. sorry to leave the site as we felt so comfortable here.

Travelling party: Couple

Stayed 5 days in end as an excellent site and area to visit. Very large pitches although lots are sloping and ramps are essential. Some are flatter. Toilets brand new and spotlessly clean. Organised meals through the week. Small bar with range of snacks/specials. Campsite owners very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. Good road access to/from the campsite.

Toilet facilities were great and the pool was very nice although it was quite small. The pitch sizes were great however it was a bit slopey. All in all a great campsite

This is our favourite site in France, large pitches and beautiful surroundings; the Dutch family that own it are very friendly and hardworking, everywhere is very clean and tidy will return for sure.
