Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Beautiful gardens include a 30 ft tall bamboo corridor

  • Discover the nearby Lascaux caves

  • Watch the River Vézère rush by this parc

Fancy mixing the rustic beauty of the Dordogne with daily splash-abouts at a brand new pool complex? Then Le Paradis is the ideal parc for you.

Set in the heart of the French countryside, surrounded by 17 acres of beautifully maintained trees and exotic plants, you’ll soon understand why this is considered one of the country’s top-quality parcs. Those with green fingers will love to take the parc up on their offer of picking herbs and spices from the garden on parc, while the warm, welcoming owners will make you feel at home from day one of your holiday. If you’re feeling active, hop in a canoe or kayak to discover the River Vézère, which flows past the parc or dive into the parc’s two large swimming pools - one of which is newly developed for 2014. When night-time arrives, you might discover that the parc’s focal point is the lovely little courtyard with its popular bar and restaurant. In high season, an ‘animateur’ arranges a variety of sports events, ‘soirées’, and weekly discos in the bar.
