Parc reviews

Parc highlights

This lovely parc is set in beautiful countryside, surrounded by rolling hills and offers its guests good facilities, including a pool complex with waterslides, plus shop, bar and restaurant. The grounds here are immaculately kept by the proud family owners and many of our pitches are shaded by mature oaks. The tennis court, crazy golf and play area can be viewed from the pretty bar terrace, or you can explore these grounds by bicycle. Going off parc, the bicycle trails continue through the local countryside, or if you wish to explore by canoe, the River Dordogne is within easy reach. Back on dry land however, gorgeous Sarlat is just 8km away; its winding streets and local bistros waiting to be discovered.

      Walking

      cs_walking_head_title

      The Dordogne is famous for its castles, caves, châteaux and medieval villages, with beautiful panoramic views and deep cut river valleys all around you. This rich landscape is also dotted with historic farms, natural woodlands, forests, walnut groves and traditional villages of honey-coloured stone. In spring, the fields are full of poppies and wild flowers, not to mention the warblers who have just returned from their winter migration to warmer climes. In spring and summer, a host of multi-coloured butterflies waft across every path, and you may also spot dragonflies and kingfishers along the river edges, making this a truly wonderful walking destination.
