We stayed at Domaine de Bourrat as part of a 3 month tour around France, and wished we had stayed longer. The area for camping has well spaced out pitches in a large landscaped area of tranquil green land which has a panoramic view of the surrounding area. There is a characterful bar, with meals available, and a pleasant garden. An excellent swimming pool, and an adjacent small golf course add to the facilities. The key to its attraction is the combination of natural surroundings, informality and the personality of its very warm and personable hosts. Their help and presence added to our stay significantly, and they were responsible for a remarkable act of kindness after we had left for our next stay in Limousin. I had left my glasses behind - they called me to make me aware of this and immediately offered to drive to Brive with them the next day ( which he did ). The ' sanitaires' have the by no means standard comforts of toilet seats, loo paper and continuous hot water. Labastide Murat is an interesting town close by, and there is a wealth of beautiful villages and scenic areas to explore in the vicinity - notably the Cele and Lot valleys, St Cirq, Cahors and Rocamadour. We loved our time here.
N. B. The site is at the end of a narrow and twisting drive of about 1 km, we managed access comfortably with our large twin axle caravan so don't be put off by this.
We had a wonderful stay here. The owners are very welcoming, knowledgeable about the area and are happy to help in anyway you need. The setting is idyllic, completely off the beaten track, so it's great for getting away from it all. Yet it's just a short drive into the charming local villages and only a bit further to travel to reach the larger towns.
Very good, home cooked food is available in the club house, with themed evenings and entertainment regularly put on. The shower block is a good size and very clean. The swimming pool is deceptively large and kept scrupulously clean. The Gite, where we stayed, is very well presented with all that you'd require for a self catering holiday.
Although we didn't camp there, we could see that the facilities available for camping were ideal and those who were there camping were all seemed happy with what they had available. It really is a unique holiday, not just in the setting but also in the welcome. For Brits abroad it's lovely to have somewhere that, not only embraces all that is French and relevant to the area, but also offers those little touches of home that we all still enjoy, even on holiday.
We stayed here for 10 days and found the owners very friendly and helpful. The site is very secluded and peaceful, we enjoyed the country walks and the location is good for all the local attractions, though as the site is outside the village you would need transport to make the best use of the location.
The toilets are clean, as are the showers, there is a restaurant on site, and a pool this was clean and near enough to collect drinks from the bar.
We are hoping to return for another visit this year, as there is so much we did not get around to doing last time.
