from 55 reviews Write review

Camping site Domaine de la Paille Basse, a country estate camping site in the Castels chain is situated on a forested ridge near Souillac (Lot). The first thing you notice is the beautiful view and the harmony with which the camping site has been integrated into the surrounding nature. The property is very green and well maintained with a number of colourful flower pots. The restored medieval farms now house the reception and a charming restaurant.

Camping or glamping?

Here camping varies from basic to luxurious. The spacious campsites are pretty, primarily flat and well organized. The sanitation is modern. There is a choice of a standard site with or without electricity, a comfort site with a water connection and a premium site with its own refrigerator, picnic table, gas barbecue and two loungers. If you don't have your own equipment, you can rent a Coco Sweet tent or choose the spacious and charming glamping tent.

Water fun and amusement

The camping site has three swimming pools, a large and deep outdoor pool, a heated shallow pool and a heated kiddie pool. There are also four water slides next to each other and a water play area for the little ones. There are play areas, tennis courts, a grass football pitch and jeu-de-boules pitch. The older youth can strut the latest dance moves in the teenager disco (July and August).

To do and see

La Paille Basse is very child-friendly, so in the summer months many families have fun with the children. Other guests are active campers who like to hike in the surrounding area and culture lovers who really love the picturesque villages, castles and churches in the area.

Travelling party: Young couple

Liked - La Paille Basse excels at relaxation! From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, everything is designed to make your stay a pleasant & happy one.
Yes this time we’re staying ‘out of season’ and it’s blissfully quiet but we have also stayed in the height of the season and still found the site to be extremely well organised with generous level pitches and an excellent range of clean facilities.
Staff are very helpful and can speak several languages which helps but if like me you’re here to improve your French they’ll help you do that too. I can not recommend this site enough to you.

Disliked - There is nothing I dislike about this site

Liked - Great swimming pool ideal for adults and children alike, but no sun beds or chairs, large level pitches, water and electric good, helpful friendly staff.
Disliked - We appreciate we were end of season but the cleanliness of the showers left a lot to be desired, the tile floors were thick with brown slime as were the cubicle panels obviously a full seasons worth of congealed soap and grime. Regular cleaning did not appear to happen as empty shampoo bottles were left on the floor for several days. Water extremely hot it taking several minutes before becoming cool enough to shower safely.
The rubbish bins were a very long way away if based at the bottom of the site, nearly a kilometre!

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - Beautiful setting, very well looked after washing facilities, brilliant entertainment for adults and children. Remi, in particular, was a great host for the children.
Disliked - The condition of the sports area (football, tennis, volleyball etc) was poor (eg the volleyball net was torn and well used and the tennis court fence needed repairs/upgrading. It felt as though it hadn’t been looked after for some time.

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - Lots for kids to do, safe, nice pools which are well maintained. Nice atmosphere and reception and staff are friendly.
Disliked - Expensive so toilets and showers should be cleaner. They don't seem to be cleaned thoroughly. Bar, food and restaurant are very expensive. Can be very noisy late into the night due to entertainment in the bar. Live music is really good but the other shows are only good for French speakers.

Liked - Use to come here with our kids, it was perfect for them.. We escaped UK as soon as Covid rules relaxed and came back after 13 years as a couple absolutely still loved it.. Restaurant has upped their game, food well prepared and presented. Also there is a now a separate snack bar. Great for families. Our kids really envious so we're all planning to come back next year!

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - Our kids love the pools, water slides and the playground. We have been before and they begged us to come back. We all loved the great food from the snack bar, the variety of evening entertainment and the friendly, helpful staff.
Disliked - The lightbulbs in our chalet weren’t LED and so got very hot.

Travelling party: Seniors

Liked - The laid back ambience in the low season. The quietness. The excellent pool. The restaurant - we enjoyed it more than Les Marthes!. The bread service in the morning. The friendliness of the staff. The Sunday night music. The very accurate weather forecast for two days in advance - great when you want to leave on a dry day..
Disliked - For a tent some of the pitches have many rocks - c'est la vie! The pression was a little expensive in the bar and there was no happy hour.
