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.

From the time we arrived, the owners made us all very welcome, that included our dog that had a great time with Millie, their Retriever.

The site is quietly situated in a small valley just off the Lot and only a short walk to the River Lot. There is access to lots of dog friendly walks behind the site, you are able to wander for miles without the need to use roads.

The facilities are all adequate and clean, we didn’t use the pools because it was the last week of the season and they had been covered, but the weather wasn’t particularly inviting either… however, on a hotter day I bet they are most inviting…

The owners opened the bar each evening for an hour or two where we met up with other campers for a chat about the day, had a couple of drinks, all the dogs socialised and we all had a very enjoyable evening. Obviously being out of the main season it was pretty quiet allowing N&J time to spend with us. We enjoyed our evenings, everyone was very good company.

Well situated for visiting surrounding attractions La Cirq Lapopie is only 10 mins drive away with plenty of good restaurants despite its touristy appearance. Would recommend the site and will stay again when in the area.

Outstanding tranquil and peaceful small and very friendly site!

Huge pitches with a choice of full, partial or no shade in a wooded valley.

Toilet, shower and wash up facilities are adequate and spotlessly kept.

The 2 swimming pools are immaculately kept, and there is an on-site bar with shady tables on the outside terrace.

We arrived at the end of June for an initial 4 night stay and had to drag ourselves away after 12nights

Excellent hosts for whom nothing seems to be a problem - the fact that they are English was also a bonus.

The Lot Valley is spectacular and the site is handily located for easy half day trips to the various attractions - caves with 25000 year old Neolithic paintings, delightful little towns and villages (some seemingly impossibly perched on the sides of the limestone cliffs along the Lot river).

Thoroughly recommended, and we will be sure to stay again when we are in the area.

Found this site almost by accident.

Very pleased when we got there, small site but large pitches and the freedom to choose our own pitch. The facilities are very good and the owners (relatively new) are busy updating it all the time. The site is clean and well looked after by very friendly staff with adequate showers / toilet / washing up facilities, we loved the 2 swimming pools!

The owners who are English are very welcoming and go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your stay - nothing is too much trouble!

We were only there for 6 nights and would gladly have stayed longer as there is so much in the area to do / see - we only scratched the surface.

Will definitely be back!

This was our second stay, the first being Spring 2012 and it suited us so perfectly we had to return. It is a beautiful site with many mature trees and lots of grass with a parklike feel, yet drains well (we were worried about this as there had been masses of rain before we arrived). The pitches are all marked but because they are so spacious there is a pleasant randomness to the arrangement of the units (we are not keen on serried ranks of caravans in a row!) The trees break up the view and there are several areas split up by walls and by the crystal clear stream (the Ruisseau in the name) in which our dog loves to paddle to cool down. Electricity is available throughout as far as I know.

There are two sanitary blocks and the showers in the reception block have been recently renovated making them very satisfactory with plenty of hooks to keep things off the floor. There is a washing machine which requires liquid, not powder (catching me out as I had only taken powder with me) and a drying line.

The owners, Nigel and Jenny Young, took the site over a couple of years ago and are energetically improving it. There is a smart bar area with seating inside and out and they provide a really superb menu du jour at lunchtime - 3 courses including wine and coffee. We took regular advantage of these meals and the quality was excellent with great variety. On Fridays and at weekends they offer pizzas in the evenings which are some of the best we have had anywhere. Croissants, pain au chocolat and bread can all be booked at reception for the next morning, and the bar is open all day for drinks and ice-creams.

For us good dog walking is key to happiness on a site and there are wild flower meadows owned by Nigel and Jenny where a dog can run about, and a short walk along the road takes you down to the river Lot on a farm track with dog swimming opportunities. There are many other longer walks locally although these do all include rough stony paths due to the limestone terrain. Good footwear essential!

We didn't use the swimming pool but it looked lovely.

There are lots of interesting places to visit nearby.

All in all it ticks all our boxes and we shall be back next year, all being well!
