Arrive at Camping Le Capeyrou and you'll stumble across one of the Dordogne's best kept secrets.
This small and intimate parc is set on the banks of the Dordogne River, beneath a majestic cliff-top castle made of limestone (make sure you take a guided tour!). On parc, there are only 100 tent pitches, thanks to its designation by the French government as a protégée (protected) area, therefore providing the ultimate relaxing retreat. It's luxurious camping only at this parc, as you'll stay in one of our safari tents and it won’t be long until you've settled in, thanks to the parc's welcoming and friendly owners. While there is no restaurant or shop on site, you definitely won't go hungry because you can take a trip to a restaurant at neighbouring Auberge (50 metres away) that serves tasty local produce. And there is also a supermarket across the road. Once you've taken a dip in the classic, rectangular pool you might fancy making the most of the stunning, natural surroundings, so why not hop in a canoe and paddle your way down the Dordogne?
The following facilities are available:
Some facilities remain closed in low season, please check at the time of booking if there is an activity or facility which is key for your holiday.
Within the peaceful oasis of this authentic parc you'll find a large pool, perfect for relaxing in the heated waters whilst gazing up at the stunning surrounding valley.
Children have their own small pool to splash around in!
