A site very much in the French style, although it has very friendly Dutch owners. There is a new toilet block being built which will be a great step forward. Although having said that the current toilet block is very clean (but very tatty) indeed.

The pitches are huge, but many are sloping which can make positioning a large outfit a little difficult.

Very nice people here, who can speak English very well indeed and try to please. Very good.

We visited this site in May for the first time. We received a very warm welcome from the two Dutch owners. We were shown around the site and all the facilities, and we shown our pitch, before driving in. The facilities were fine, but while we were there a new shower/toilet block was being built. The pitches were extremely generous. The one we were on was on a slope, but nothing the levelers couldn't deal with. The weather wasn't very warm but on the two sunny days the owner opened the pool and came around to tell us all. Twice a week the owners put on a three course meal for the campers. This was a brilliant evening, with great food. It is essential to book early for this popular event. The site is close to Limoges, which is well worth a visit, with St Junien even closer offering all the big supermarkets.

We stayed here 3 nights on our way south primarily to visit Oradour sur Glane. The site seems to be in two parts; one more mature with shade and the other really just a field with very large pitches and no shade. Bushes have been planted but will take some time to establish. As mentioned in other reviews the toilet block is very basic as are the washing up facilities.

The owners are very friendly and helpful, it was lovely to have bread delivered to our pitch in the morning. The wifi signal did not work on our pitch so we had to use our laptop at the bar. We didn't explore the area but the swimming lake looked clean with a nice beach, the bar in the village was very friendly as was the garage (chap mended our car straight away and charged 10 euros).

A good location and great lanes and small roads to explore on bikes. There is a swimming lake near by. The pitch was a good size with hook up and water. There is a new pool though it is small and was always crowded and is very much a play pool for young children. The wash rooms and toilets are very tired and desperately in need of an upgrade. They were under pressure in the mornings with queues and although kept very clean, the facilities are dingy and dark.

The site is Dutch owned and when we were there 99% of other users were from the Netherlands - so much so that we forgot we were in France. The internet can work out to be expensive and the free PC is almost always in use.

Mixed feelings really. Might go back - but I would search elsewhere first.

We decided to visit this site based on the reviews on this page and would broadly agree with them.

The pitches are huge making the caravan mover redundant.

The owner is enthusiastic and helpful.

The toilets/showers are not new but are very clean and pleasant to use.

There is a trampoline, a small play area and a large open space but not really great for children

A few different points

We had mixed weather during our stay- in the sun the site was great but when it rained we realised that there was very little tarmac/concrete so a trip to the toilets could get muddy. Guess who didn't pack wet weather shoes!

The nearby village has a bar, a small shop and best of all a very good bakery with some of the nicest french bread you will taste.

Limoges is about 30 minutes away and is not really worth visiting by comparison with most French towns.

Rochechouart and St Junien are both small towns with supermarkets. They are about 20 minutes away and are typical small french towns with Rochechoart the most attractive with may old houses in the centre. Rochechouart is best for restaurants with St Junien having the only hypermarket.

One visit not to be missed is Oradour Sur Glane ( about 30 minutes) which is the remaims of a village that was surrounded by the Germans in 1944 and every man, woman and child killed. The way that the remains have been preserved is at the same time chilling and awe inspiring. Not to be missed.

We arrived as the Dutch schools broke up ( 3 weeks before the UK) and the site was full and turning away visitors. This put pressure on the toilets but the site still felt airy.

I would agree with the comments that there were so many Dutch people it didn't feel like France.

The area is OK but in 5 days we visited what we wanted and don't really feel the need to return unlike the Lower Limousin and Dordogne which draws us time and time again. The camp site generated the same feelings - fine for a few days but then move on.

Enthusiastic welcome from Dutch owner. New smallish swimming pool opened this season. Clean toilet block, if a little old and basic. VERY large pitches. Free use of internet on lap top in bar. Book exchange in bar and a Games box. Not much shade on quite a few pitches but trees are planted to eventually give some. Good site to go out to visit Oradour sur Gane. Lots of tourist info in office. Meal evenings. We would return.
