Reviewer: Jwirwin 1 review from this member

Just returned from this site after 20nts, well what can I say ?, first impressions when we arrived after a 28 hour journey from Northern Ireland which included watching French farmers burn tyres in middle of a26 motorway was not very good as reception was closed, so had a walk around site which impressed us very much.

We eventually got on to our pitch & as we were setting up we came across 5 dead mice so we came to the conclusion that our pitch wasn't inspected or the grass cut. The pitch itself was very spacious & private but was in our mind very vulnerable to theft as the road running along side of pitch had no prevention to stop people from entering site apart from a little fence which a small child could climb.

The site itself is beautifully kept & staff very helpful who always acknowledged you, pool & bar very clean but Same problems exist on this site as every other site we have visited during the last 12years is ppl leaving towels on loungers which is very annoying cos the pools half full but no one on loungers so my wife decided to bring her own up which was a bit of a nuisance. The takeaway was fab as portions of frites was huge so 1portion done 2 ppl :) also pizza & burgers amazing so full credit to chef.

Cycling in area is very dangerous as road running front of site is very fast so was a bit disappointed as we love cycling. Sarlat etc is a fab drive or go the opposite way for prehistoric sites to include to beautiful village of les eyzies. Kids play area I thought was restricted and could be doing with more grass area, the lake needs a good clean as we spotted numerous dead fish dotted along edge of lake & was still there after 20 nights.

The wifi was absolutely dreadful & very expensive for what it is, I had to go by lake to get any kind of signal & even at that it would cost you a euro to read a few mails & took ages to disconnect while you were still being charged from your wifi time.

Finally a vetting process might be an idea as our last 3 days there was an absolute nightmare as 3 family's from Bristol I think, done nothing but roar & shout all day & night & urinate in the water facilities along with throwing rubbish into hedges. Overall campsite very nice but would not call it 5* as we have been to a few 3&4*sites around dordogne and would put it on same level as some of them also a bit on the expensive side for what it is.

The best campsite restaurant we have every experienced with a good 3 course meal for 16. 50 Euro's. However, as this was the beginning of June, staff were still undergoing training and, on another night, the take-away rotisserie chicken was not properly cooked!

Friendly English speaking staff and a small shop selling baguettes and croissants. However, to buy the same from a traditonal boulangerie means a 18km round trip to Sarlat.

Pitches are adequate with plenty of water points. Understandably, pouring grey water down the water point drain is forbidden, but don't take a Wastemaster as hefting a full one 40cm to pour it down the waste water basin in the toilet block is hard work.

A fantastic area for site seeing and a lot to do.

Just back from this site. It was our first venture to the Dordogne area. On the whole we enjoyed both area and site although weather was very changeable with some rain every day! I spoke to rest of family (OH, 18yr old and 9yr old sons)and these are our pros and cons


Great reception, bar and indoor games (snooker and table football)

Beautifully maintained site

Very clean facilities

Great area to visit, lots to do and see

Good pool area

Snack shop chips - great


Pitches quite tight and shady really does mean very very shady!

Wifi useless!

Distance and hills/steps to toilets/ showers and washing up facilities

Entertainment bit hit and miss

Restaurant menu limited and didn't change from week to week.

Places to go

Canoeing/kayaking down Dordogne or Vezeres

Roque Saint Christophe

Lascaux II

Chateau de Fenelon

Great meal at Mentalo restaurant (Les Elzies de Tayac)

We had a wonderful stay here nothing was too much trouble for staff. Only thing that marred our stay was the fact that there was no notice of the rotisserie closing for the season, otherwise couldn't fault it.

Toilet blocks were spotless at all times pitches were plenty big enough for caravan, awning and car.

Restaurant was excellent not my favourite type of food in this area but well cooked and presented

Close to Sarlat and all attractions don't miss taking a canoe trip even for the aged it's great fun

Well, what can I say, we started planning this holiday some months ago and had some excellent advice and assistance from other members.

We wanted to go to this area because my parents used to go to the Dordogne 20 years ago and they always raved about it. We looked for a site in the area and came across 'Le Moulin du Roche'

It looked an excellent site with good facilities and it also had great reviews on here, so we booked it!

We then found out from my Aunty and Uncle that not only was this the same area that Mum and Dad used to go, it was exactly the same site!

Anyway, was it all worth it, of course it was.

This has been the best holiday that we can remember. It was simply fantastic. We arrived on a Sunday in the pouring rain but then didn't see any more until the following Sunday. Apart from that the weather was fantastic. With regard to the site,


Fantastic facilities, always clean and we didn't queue once while we were there.

Showers nice and hot and free

Situation - beautiful location, lovely site and area, nice walks, (we went on one of the mapped walks through the forests and I can't remember any nicer scenery, it was like being in a Disney film).

Shop - had everything we needed and a great selection of freshly baked goodies every morning. You simply put your name on the list outside the shop the night before and ticked the box(es) of the eight or nine choices that were there. Next day, you collected it from the shop and enjoyed it in the sunshine!

Reception - excellent, very helpful and good discounts available. We went canoeing down the Dordogne and it was not only arranged and booked for us by reception, they gave us a hefty discount as well! That was a day to remember for the rest of our lives and was worth the journey to the Dordogne on it's own! haha

The bar was our favourite haunt between 5ish - 7ish and we would sit outside watching the boules or just cooling down with an ice cold beer or some surprisingly potent home made sangria at 2 euros a glass.

The restaurant was great and we used it more than we've ever used an on-site eatery as the food was so good. The daily set menu was varied and very reasonable at 12 euros for 3 courses. The steak for 20 euros was mind blowing. It consisted of a very large piece of fillet, (not a slice but a whole end piece). This came on a very hot marble platter that you actually cooked it on yourself! You sliced a piece off and cooked it to your taste and enjoyed it! Heaven.

Pool area was super clean and pool was very very nice when it got hot.

The staff couldn't do enough and you could tell that they enjoyed making the holiday as good as it was.

I will be counting the days until we go back there.

Please remember that different people like different things and this was ideal for my Wife and I. It also looked great for families with children but it was 6 miles from the town of Sarlat so there was driving involved. Would I recommend it? of course!

Thanks again to the members on here who gave us invaluable advice and thanks to Le Moulin Du Roche.

I would agree with others that this is a good campsite and thus I won't go over the good points. I do need however to add one major caveat. We had a less than happy time here and if we could have left we would have done but they would not refund any money at all, and as it is a very expensive site, we could not take 'the money hit' ( we had paid for two weeks)and just move on.

We had very specifically requested a quiet restful area on a 'grand comfort' pitch. The pitch was a good size but opposite the speakers from the swimming pool area. Every day, the speakers blasted out English pop music of the boom boom variety at all hours of the day, starting with pool aerobics at 10 am. It was incredibly loud. It was certainly the loudest I have ever heard on any campsite in my 25 years of camping and caravanning.

The disco thankfully is only once a week but went on until 12:15, but there were other musical shows as well.

If you want peace and quiet there are many areas you can choose from but not with a grand comfort pitch, so please be aware of this.
