This was the second time we had visited this site. It is in a wonderful location by the Dordogne and plenty of shade. It appears to have changed hands since last year.

We were sorry that the restaurant was not open or the take away pizza facility. The reason we were told was because the children were not on holiday yet! The site was very full and this is an insult to people on holiday in May, June and July. The French always complain their season is so short but that is of their own making it seems.

The site was well kept and facilities very clean, but not all of them were open and in particular the hand washing facilities had been cut by a half. Why?

We found it a delightful site. Large pitches, especially some of the riverside frontage ones, which give you your own private section of beach (though we experience some people setting up on 'our' section. Didn't bother to complain as we were going out for the day).

Great for launching your own 'boats' directly from your pitch.

Found the bar/pizza area pretty basic, not much used, and more expensive that any bar in town (probably why). It was only a five minute walk into town and its many bars and restaurants. A lovely place.

Plenty to 'do' in the area. But the river is the 'star' attraction. Canoeing/kayaking down from Argentat is a great 'ride', and more fun than further downstream where the rapids become less rapid. And, especially the much more crowded 'Sarlat' area.

Altogether a more peaceful experience than the tourist-ful stretches of the river further downstream.

We arrived whilst reception was closed but a worker gave us a map and invited us to choose our pitch. We chose one in the extra part of the site, through an open gateway by the river. This meant that as it was only June our block of sanitaires was not open till the day before we left, June 18th so it was a longish walk before that but the mai part of the site was already quite full and had smaller pitches overlooked in some cases from all around. Ours was a large pitch and we enjoyed the river flowing by. The pool was fine, the sanitaires were clean. The staff were helpful. There is a book swap. It was great to just be able to wander into the village and we enjoyed the market and a stroll round the old town in the evening. The Garbarre trip on the river was not so successful as the commentary was all in French and it was a very hot afternoon with no shade in the boat.

An ACSI site in June.

A lot of positive things have already been written about this site, which are still true. The site is in a fantastic location on the banks of the Dordogne and the staff are great. The facilities are good with a decent sized pool and play area for the little ones. Having a 'wet play' area in a baby pool is a great idea and the bouncy castle made our 3 yr old smile every day.

On the downside the pool area is getting a bit tired, the flags have become uneven and the tiles are falling off in the toilet. I would be very surprised if this wasn't sorted before next summer as the site appears to be very well managed. While many of the pitches are lovely there are some less nice ones. We plan to return to this site in a few years and will definitely go for a 'Premium' pitch on the banks of the river (and ask to move if we don't like it).

The local area is very pretty and the village has several shops and restaurants.

The fact that we plan to go back, and met other campers who return regularly should tell you all you need to know about this site.

Agree with all comments left by previous reviewers.

A great welcome at reception, shown to your pitch to see if you like it. The pitches were of mixed quality but then we turned up on spec, not that spacious but ok and no grass because of time of year. High season so very busy and quite expensive, 30 euros a night (for two people and a hook up) but there is a pool (and lots for children to do if you have them) and it is in a fantastic position by the Dordogne and the beautiful town of Beaulieu so it did feel worth it.

The town is stunning with a beautiful abbey and cobbled streets, two markets a week and some lovely bars and restaurants.

Had a lovely cycle ride through the countryside along by the river (nice and flat), a 20km (3-4hour) kayak down the river from one of the campsites towards Argentat (Soleil d'oc- just park your car at the top and walk down through the campsite to the river to find the kiosk to pay, you get the bus back from Beaulieu at around 5 to get your car) visited Gouffre de padirac, an underground cave - spectacular. Also swam in the river, there is a designated area across the bridge. From the campsite where there are also tennis courts and a municipal pool with slides etc. We visited Carennac for a wander about and an icecream (a 'plus beau villages' of which there are many in the area) which was very pretty.

The campsite was quiet at night, any entertainment was low key and not every night (there was a great guitarist) and finished early.

A lovely area not touristy at all and thoroughly recommend the campsite for couples or families.

A others have indicated, this is a lovely site; on the banks of the Dordogne river, accessed by a bridge over a mill stream. The site is right next to the picturesque medieval town, which is relatively undiscovered. There are a few really good restaurants - we used the Veloute twice: great cuisine and friendly service. A few small working shops in the pedestrian precinct; I think there's only one tourist shop selling local produce and nick-nacks.

The town has a small market square, and another Place with tourist office. There is a busy road, carrying some traffic to the 'Bonne Maman' jam factory in the next town, and up the valley to Argentat.

The site is still run by Flower campings; while we were there things weren't at full tilt; but they opened the bar for drinks and pizza while the rugby was on. Shower block heated - indoor enclosures have shower and washbasin. There's a second block further down. Reception sells ice-creams, and is staffed by friendly and relaxed staff.

Pitches seemed generously sized. The pitch numbering is a little odd - we were on J5, divided off by small shrubs. The letters referred to different tariffs, I think. There's an area for 'nature' camping, and a few well-placed mobile homes. The site is very grassy, and well-shaded; a haven for woodland birds.

With ACSI prices at 13, or a little more for the 'Grand Confort' pitches on the river front, this is great value for money, and would make a good touring centre for a week.
