Just returned from a week on this lovely site with kids aged 15, 13, and 8. We were there the last week of August so it was getting quieter as the French school hols ended. The site is fantastic and the reviews weren't wrong. After such a long drive from Calais, we didn't fancy doing much driving around, and there really was no need. The pool is properly heated, the little man-made beach is great and the kids loved a dip down there at the river. The walk into town is 10 mins (although parking is free if you have to take the car which we did a couple of times). The local kayak-rental is just down the road (discount if you get your leaflet stamped in reception!), has reasonable rates, and offers varying distances depending how adventurous you feel - great experience. Brantome itself is beautiful and great to mooch about. The market was nice (quite small). Didn't use the washing/wash-up/shower facilities, but all looked in good clean shape. Didn't use the shop but they had a few essentials - although note Aldi and Carrefour are 5 mins away by car. The pitches looked great from my limited experience (we tend to rent statics these days), lots of shade and reasonable size and variety. Lots near the river. I was amazed at the lack of midges/insects which was a big bonus. All the people (staff and guests) on site were really nice, lots of French, few Brits and Dutch etc. Overall, Just had exactly what we needed, a great site for a relaxing holiday with plenty to do around. Can't fault it. Don't normally go back to the same place, but might have to make an exception here.

This is our second year staying on a riverside pitch at this site. As the other review says, there is so much potential to this site and many things which are wonderful but there is just a little missing.

We always pay a little more for a riverside pitch which meant that we were able to use our kayak and swim as often as we wanted.

The site was far fuller with dutch visitors than last year and it felt a little less French.

There are so many positives - they are now doing more food for takeaway, there is a lovely little bar, the play area is excellent with different activities put on.

There was a storm and a tree was split by the wind overhanging a unit. A rather entertaining lumberjack arrived in cut off jeans and loafers to manage the tree whilst largely balancing on one leg hanging off the ladder! It was a cleared up within hours.

Our issue with the site was the fact that there was just wasn't enough hot water for a site which has grown. People were filling their washing up bowls in the showers and I ended up shaving back at the pitch.

There was also a little issue in that they have invested heavily in a quayside and beach for people to sit by the river. They have put lovely chairs out for people to use but all of this could be undone on a day when a couple of families decided that they were going to fish off there rather than the two or three spots either side of the beach. This meant that people were either forced to enter into a standoff or wait until they have finished.

Don't let this put you off the site and if you go, pay extra for the pitches by the river. A lovely site but just needs someone to look at the final bits to get that fourth star

We were there in late July and early August and so it was busy.

Two excellent weeks here.

The owners are relatively new (a couple of years), and pursuing a relentless improvement programme. They are intent on raising the three star status to four within the next couple of years. They were very attentive and sorted all problems with charm and positive attitude.

So, if you want value for money. Get in there before 4 star rates bite!

The whole site is very well maintained with hedged privacy for many, though some pitches are less well 'separated'. Not that this matters much as the average pitch size is very generous indeed.

Some pitches are very shaded, others give a mix of sun and shade, and others are very unprotected.

The riverside pitches are the most interesting, and provide relaxing views and atmosphere. We used three pitches altogether. First night on a well hedged site, then a week on a riverside pitch, followed by another week on a different riverside pitch (the newer part of the campsite. We found this to be the best one. )

The bar/restaurant area is nicely set up, though not much used when we were there. Probably the various alternatives offered by Brantome (an easy walk) provided too much competition.

The area is full of things to do and places to visit. As well as Brantome there are masses of possibly drives in the very picturesque area.

Biking is good, with flat roads available, though no voie vert. Boats can be launched from the campsite. Indeed I tied our kayak to a tree on the riverside pitch. The paddle round town (the river circumnavigates the main town, which is referred to as the Venice of the Perigord. Slight exaggeration!. But, shooting the weirs is fun. And watching those who get stuck is, too) is well worth while. Long runs are available if you start from further upstream. At least 20km runs are possible back to the campsite. If you don't have your own boat, canoe/kayak hire is available in town. If you get a kayak do insist on double kayak paddles. We saw many struggling with single canoe paddles, which, without considerable experience, tend to result in a zig-zag course down the river, and unnecessary expenditure of energy.

We really enjoyed this site and would recommend it.

This is a very nice site situated on the edge of the beautiful town of Brantôme (about a 10/15 mins walk) and is ideal for touring motorhomers. We accessed the site from the D939 (Angoulême) turning onto the D78 in Brantôme and the site was on the right just outside the town past the tennis courts.

We used our ACSI Card and were allowed to choose our own pitch as long as it was not riverside or a service pitch. The girl on reception was very pleasant and was pleased to be practising her English. They use a number plate recognition system at the entry barrier which is becoming quite common place.

There are two facilities blocks with everything you need and they were kept clean at all times. Another aspect of the site we liked was the way it was laid out in cul-de-sacs around the central block. There is also a swimming pool and a small man-made beach on the riverside.

We spent two days here spending our time walking to and from Brantôme visiting the lovely local shops and eating in one of the restaurants and walking along the riverside. This is a very relaxing place even at the time of our visit in early September although we can imagine it being a bit busy in July/August.

We would definitely visit Camping Brantôme Peyrelevade again as Brantôme is one of our favourite towns in France and this campsite make the visit all that more enjoyable.

We have just returned from a superb two weeks here. We chose a river pitch and what a pitch it was. The size of the pitch was huge and being able to fish, eat or just chill by the river was pure bliss. If you spent time watching the river you would see kingfishers going about their business right under most people's noses.

The facilities on site were always clean and the showers were always hot when I used them. The toilets, showers and washing up faculties we all housed in this central building. There is also a smaller facility behind the swimming pool area. We particularly liked how the site was laid out around little cul de sacs of pitches.

The site seems to attract a certain type of camper as we found it very friendly regardless of nationality. Overall it was an even mix of Dutch, British and French campers.

The play park was enough for our two kids and the site was very safe for them to cycle around on their own.

The site is perfectly located for the beautiful town of Brantome. It only takes about 15 minutes walk to get there on a flat path which is mostly away from the road.

The town isn't full of shops but has enough going on with its markets. A small local produce one is on Tuesday morning and the bigger main market on a Friday. We also were lucky enough to enjoy a firemans fete with music stage and beer and wine etc. That night was brilliant as all ages enjoyed it and it was a bit surreal seeing people my retired parents age dancing to house music in the light of lasers while a foam machine covered the crowd. The atmosphere really was superb.

We had some good days out on the river in various guises. The beach on the site allows you to swim or mess about in a dingy or canoe. The kids loved pottering on the river in the dingy.

The on site pool is small but because of the ability to use the river didn't get as busy as we would have expected.

We also went out of town to a weir 5 minutes away and spent a hot afternoon there. Brantome canoes are worth a visit and after going around the town on a one hour 'trial' we then went for the big 20km trip too. Sure our arms were a bit sore but it was a great day out.

The site had some entertainment but not much and to be honest we don't really go for the all singing and dancing entertainment type sites. Our son particularly enjoyed the football match

Things to do around the site include visits to the grottos, the abbey, canoeing and if you feel energetic the velorail. The velorail is a pedal powered 5 person vehicle that runs on a disused railway line. Only two people pedal and it is heavy but also its all uphill on the way out. When you get to the end there is a snackbar and about 30 minutes before you go back again all downhill.

Also in Brantome there is a river jousting show I think on Saturday Night.

I would definitely recommend this site and it certainly seemed popular with people doing short stays and touring.

This site is in a perfect position just outside a very picturesque small town - 15 minute walk or 5 minute cycle. The riverside pitches weren't in use as there had been a lot of rain in the preceding weeks but looked lovely however our pitch was fine and big enough. The pool was very warm and pleasant but think it would probably get a bit crowded in high season but doesn't everywhere. Went on a lovely flatish cycle ride to Bourdeilles which is a very pretty village. Watched the euros in a great bar in the middle of Brantome. Great showers and toilets - new, very clean and good water pressure. We only stayed for a couple of nights as on a touring holiday but maybe could have stayed on longer.
