- Just got back from 9 nights at Camping Le Capeyrou and we had a fantastic time. It was our first trip abroad with our sons 5 and 8 and we really wanted it to be a memorable holiday. I am so glad we picked this campsite (and the Dordoyne area in general). The only problem is I’m now afraid to go anywhere else in case it doesn’t live up to the high standard set here!
The safari tent was fantastic. We had a fantastic view of Beynac Chateau from our tent. We did have a few thunder storms when we were here and it was great to have the room to spread out in the tent without getting under each other’s feet while keeping dry. As others have mentioned, the showers/toilets were spotless, the two pools were great (and not very busy late May/early June). The temperature was mid 20’s for the whole time we were here with some days creeping up to the high 20’s.
The Vival/Casino shop opposite the park is great and is much better stocked than other on-campsite shops we have encountered so don’t let the fact the site doesn’t have it’s own shop put you off. The bar is really nice as well and will even sell you bottles of wine to take back to your tent.There is also a brilliant butchers and bakers opposite the park as well which is perfect for morning crossiants and baguette. The pizza van visited the site on Friday night and did great pizzas.
I would also say the park has a really good mix of different nationalities on site which was great. Some English, French, Dutch and German campers, with lots staying in their own campervans or caravans.
We managed to visit lots of places whilst we were there and only managed a small portion of what there is to see and do in the area. Fantastic castles that were great for the kids (Beynac, Castenaud), beautiful gardens (jardins de marqueyssac), Boat trips on the Dordoyne, picturesque medieval towns and villages (Domme, Roque-Gageac, Sarlat), amazing cave systems (Padirac), the list just goes on.
Thank you for a great holiday. It really is a brilliant site and area to visit.
