If you are looking for a small haven of peace and quiet in the heart of the countryside then this is for you. The site is split into little fields of fairly level short grass with a few trees and a small stream running through. There are fields of wild flowers behind for taking a stroll and in May wild orchids abound. The ambiance is enhanced by the lack of lights at night [although of course the shower block is lit] and the fact the bar closes at ten to protect the peaceful atmosphere. If you like to party until late in the night then this is not the site for you.

The very pleasant owners are welcoming and will do anything required to make your stay enjoyable. In May the pool and food were not available but Jenny will bake your bread for you to order. WIFI is available over the whole site for E5 but there was no phone signal.

The area is beautiful with dramatic scenery and the main tourist attractions of St Cirq Lapopie and Cloche Merle caves within a few miles. The site guide given to new arrivals contains suggestions for bike rides and car tours with lots more ideas.

If you want glorious scenery, peace and quiet and welcoming owners then this site is for you.

We arrived at the end of August, only to find both pools and the snack bar closed for the season, not what we were expecting as there is no mention of this on the website. Nor is there any mention that you have no mobile signal and as WiFi is only available in the bar area, we felt very isolated.

Be aware, the route suggested on the Web site from the A20 to the site means you leave at J57 with approximately 3 miles of very steep inclines down and hairpin bends, the reverse obviously on returning. If you have a large van as we do, you may want to consider slower inclines via La Bastide Murat to J56- it may be a mile or two more, but much easier on the car engine!

Bar was open and we sat talking to the lovely hosts most evenings. Yes as stated before, there are no lights on site, so don't forget a torch to get back to your good sized pitch.

A tranquil site- meaning no noise after 10pm! No lights on site so you need a torch for loo trips at night. Lots of rules. Toilets clean but in need of updating. ( one shower block ok) some pitches of good size - one field totally in shade. No loungers around pool- have to take your own- only deckchairs supplied. Although a lovely site and area would not return or recommend

The site: This is a very pretty site with so much potential.

Access: The site is easy enough to find but the route from the A20 is better suited to motorhomes. In any case you must watch out for the over hanging rock walls one side and the granite wall on the other. Reading other comments we also found the lack of proper sun loungers disappointing. In addition, the shower facilities are quite basic and essentially in a barn.

The area: The surrounding area is very pretty but limiting in the things to see unless you are willing to drive quite a way to get out of the valley.

Finally, we were very interested to read that the pool and bar had been closed. Other campers said this was not an uncommon comment. However, it spoilt our stay and we would not return.

This was a gem of a campsite. We hadn't read any of the other reviews until we got home but we think they are all spot on. We arrived from another campsite in the Dordogne which was full and so tightly packed that we felt a little claustrophobic. To arrive at Ruisseau du Treil and be presented with so much space on our pitch was sheer delight. The campsite was nearly full but you wouldn't have thought so.

The site is situated in a small valley that joins the main Lot Valley. We spent some lovely lazy afternoons strolling along it and marvelling at the myriad of butterflies and insects. The river Lot is just a few minutes walk. You can hire pedalos and canoes just down the road at Cenevieres but we found the best place for canoeing is the Cele River - about a 15-20 minute drive away.

The owners Jenny and Nigel are very helpful and friendly. There is a bar and a very small shop and they do snacks in the evening. Their home made pizzas are the best we have tasted for a long time!

The two swimming pools are delightful and very clean.

Nearest shops are at Cajarc about 9km away so you have to be a bit organised which isn't a problem. We even borrowed bikes from the site to cycle into the town a couple of times.

Would definitely visit again and would highly recommend.

Lovely site, bigger than it looks but has a small feel to it. It wasn't anything like full when we were there so had a very pleasant feel. The shower and loo block were clean, the second one opened while we were there. In a good position for St Cirq Lapopie and the Lot area. The Abbey and little village of Marcillac sur Gele is well worth a visit. In July and August it has a night market. Bread can be ordered for the next day. Meals are available in the evening at the bar.
