We have just come back from a month in France and stayed at this site for almost 3 weeks. This is the third time we have visited this site and we really like it.

The booking: I emailed and requested a particular pitch, that pitch was not available but they sent me a list of 8 others in that same row and we chose one - no booking fee because we had been before and we did not have to tell them exact date of leaving just a rough guide and they booked us in for 3 weeks.

Arrival: because we had been before and knew where to go it only took a couple of minutes to book in, however, they are very thorough if you are there for the first time and give you all the information you need.

Toilet facilities: always clean with lashings of hot water, lovely modern toilet blocks. Just one niggle: I use the disabled facility and this year it was cold in there and the heater on the wall did not work.

Washing etc: we did not use the laundry this time but have used in the past and it is fine.

Wash up: we have always used the wash up in the past but here they don't have washing up bowls and they don't have plugs in the sinks so it felt like we were wasting water. Not to worry thought because we had a tap on our pitch so we 'washed up at home'.

Playgrounds: we don't have children but were camped opposite the playing field and playground which are both very well used. We enjoyed watching the games on the field even the children that had a light up shuttlecock and continued to play after dark! One question though - why is it that tiny tots would rather throw gravel down the slide than go down themselves? That sound will stay with us all winter!

Pool complex: here is my one negative - this camp site has two shallow pools with slides and a small paddling pool for tiny tots as well as a SWIMMING pool that is 1. 7 metres deep. WHY then do parents insist on taking tiny babies into the SWIMMING pool when others are trying to swim? Also, WHY even though they have CCTV and rules about no inflatables in the SWIMMING pool does the camp site not do anything about it? It is very annoying when you are trying to swim to have people with babies 'playing' and jumping in! There is also however, another side to this and that is the safety of those babies. Some of the things we saw parents doing with tiny babies and toddlers in such deep water doesn't bear thinking about! There you are rant over!

Our pitch: large pitch for our large caravan, we had enough room to have our sun canopy out front and still grass in front of that with our car parked to the side. There is electricity on every pitch (are you reading this Camping Club)? There is also water on most of the pitches. These are classed as standard pitches and do not carry any supplement.

Restaurant: as a Dutch owned site you will find a lot of traditional Dutch fare on the menu and take away, not to everyone's taste but they also have pizzas on the menu and take away and they have special events. We went to the end of season 'surprise buffet' and it was brilliant with pork kebabs, sausages, chicken satay, tuna salad and numerous other salads, potato scallops, fries, a special Dutch stew, pate and cheese. People were going up to the table time and time again and I have never seen so much food!

Area: the beautiful Dordogne, what more can I say? You will love Belves itself a beautiful town on top of a hill but you should also visit the Bastide towns of Monpazier, Beaumont and Domme and the villages that cling to the rocks of Beynac and Le Roque Gageac. Go to Bergerac for a river cruise rather than these villages as you can see more from the boat. The markets are great but always difficult to park! Best local market to this location is at St Cyprien on Sunday mornings. Last but certainly not least you must not miss the town of Sarlat with it's medieval centre and the best meal to have for lunch is the Salad Perigourdine (sans gesiers if you don't like gizzards)!

Re the 'value for money' we were using camping cheques so not sure what they charge normally.

Just spent 10 nights on this site. This site is mainly Dutch, we travelled with three other families and we were the only English on site. This wasn't a problem as they were friendly and made us feel welcome. I booked the three pitches before Xmas last year and informed the site that we all had large twin axles, our pitch was one of the smallest on the site and we would not have been able to fit an awning, when I asked if we could move I was told that the best pitches are booked up at least a year in advance and there's no chance! We were close to the facilities which was ideal but the pitches weren't the best iv seen. The pool area was great for kids with slides, some of it I felt needed upgrading and looked tired, the pool that you walked through to clean your feet was filthy and blocked all the time and there was a dirty tide mark around the main pool which was off putting, my hubby ended up with an ear infection and I got a veruka! The setting of the site was lovely and play area good, it is a small site. The toilets were clean and lots going on for children. Belves was lovely but after driving around the Dorodgne area I felt this site wasn't in the best location as the river was several kms away and the area wasn't as pretty as Sarlat and Beynac/Vitrac which were stunning. We all had a fab time at the site, I wouldn't personally return as I felt there were better sites available and this was also very expensive at over 50euros a night, especially with the size of the pitch we were given, some were huge and they paid the same so I felt miffed at this.

Nicest site I've been to and would return although I like to visit new places.
We visited in 2004, rented a mobile from the site direct. Mainly Dutch campers with a handful of Brits and Belgians, there were a few Eurocamp pitches and a few statics along the back of the site. Big meadow to the left with a stream running through, loads of frogs. Old mill buildings with lots of running water, mossy walls , Lizards etc. and a sort of canal to the right, plus a smallish lake which you can fish or boat in ( small inflatables ). Great pool complex, looking at the RCN website they seem to have added another pool and possibly expanded the site a bit. Very friendly and clean, restaurant not brilliant although they did a very good DIY BBQ when we were there. Very modern facilities, good play equipment. There's a big sand pit where children can dig for fossils, although it was too hot to even stand in the sand when we were there.
Hill town of Belves about a mile away for shops etc., Dordogne river about five miles along the road, ditto supermarket. Lovely landscape, back road to Domme is a great drive in the evening. There's a main road and railway run close to the site but the road is pretty quiet and I don't recall seeing or hearing a single train.
Hope this is of some help - I can recommend the RCN sites, having stayed at the Belves, Castellane and Le Muy - at Castellane we were the only British on site. Not cheap, though at over 30 a night peak season for a pitch - top quality sites though.
