The new owners are very friendly and helpful. Excellent pitches, all hard standing and a reasonable size. The site is kept to an excellent standard and the facilities block is also excellent. Beautiful location with lovely countryside around. Take note of the suggested arrival route. We didn't and arrived by a very steep narrow road, our own fault! Good value for money and we enjoyed an excellent stay. Montingnac is a nice town to visit, particularly on market day, and there is lots to see in the surrounding area. Had a great time.

Wonderful adult only site, 8 pitches with 2 designated pitches fenced off for caravans with dogs. Site on a slope but all pitches fairly level gravel with room for awning.

Electric hook up near to each pitch, 2 water points, 1 at amenities block and 1 half way down site.

Amenities block with 2 showers, 2 toilets, 2 wash hand basins, a disabled bathroom and washing up sink. Showers wonderful, hot water at all times and plenty of room. Handwash and fresh hand towels everyday. This block is kept exceptionally clean. There is also a washing machine in here, operated on an honesty basis, paid for at end of holiday.

Peaceful rural site with great views of countryside, plenty of walking and cycling routes but need a car to get to main towns, supermarket about 20 mins away.

A good days drive from Dunkirk, follow directions given by site when nearing campsite as there are some very narrow roads, not suitable for towing caravans.

Russ and his family are the new owners of this site and are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back to this site.

This was the second time we have stayed at La Tournerie, the first being in 2012 when the site was owned by Phil and Wendy.

I don't normally do reviews but this small campsite deserves a mention. It had not changed at all since our last visit - it is an outstanding site if what you are looking for is peace and quiet in beautiful countryside but also want to be close enough to towns and places to visit.

Both Sarlat and Montignac have excellent supermarkets and local shops, easy parking and a wide range of places to eat. All around the site is a network of tracks along which you can walk and cycle for miles - the countryside is full of birdlife, butterflies and great views. Russ took us for an off road tour of the tracks in his customised 2CV to a local viewing point where we watched paragliders taking off - great fun.

The site runs up a slope, is very well maintained - the pitches are well spaced and level and the toilet block is absolutely spotless. Showers are roomy and there is an en suite disabled shower / toilet.

The new owners, Russ and Jayne, were very hospitable, helpful and friendly hosts who are clearly going to make a continued success of the site.

This was our first visit to La Tournerie, and the first time we had been to France for 10 years. We made our booking with the previous owners and were not aware of the change of ownership until I emailed with a query as part of our last minute planning. Russ, the new owner, assured me that the site was everything that the previous owner had described, and he was not wrong.

We followed the directions from the website which didn't seem quite right leaving the motorway from the East, but the final section leading into Montignac and then on to the site were absolutely spot on. Follow these directions and you won't go wrong.

When we arrived at the site we were extremely impressed. It really is in the middle of open countryside with not a sound to disturb the peace (except when Russ takes one of his vehicle collection for a run!). It is so quiet that, if you hear a car engine, you look to see where it is coming from. The site is extremely tidy, grass well trimmed and pots of flowers to brighten the place up. The site is sloping, but the pitches are all level hardstandings. There are eight pitches in all, and we were fortunate enough to have one of the two 'doggy' pitches which are completely fenced in so that the dog could wander around as if she were at home. Russ said that he was going to try to make a third doggy pitch.

There is a small facilities block with two WC's, two showers, plus a disabled unit with WC, basin and shower, there are two wash basins and a washing up sink. There is also a washing machine. The facilities were immaculate at all times, plenty of hot water, and nice spacious shower cubicles.

The town of Montignac is about a 10 or 15 minute drive away through the quiet deserted lanes. There are numerous paths and tracks through the woods, although we understand there are wild boar around, so not advisable for evening or night time walks. We used the vet at Montignac to administer the tapeworm treatment for the return to UK, he was very helpful, spoke good English and knew exactly what had to be done regarding Pet Passport etc. We had no hiccups coming back into the country.

The site electrical system seems to all be wired 'reverse polarity' so an adapter with reversed L and N is handy. Strangely enough, the adapter that I bought in Leclerc at Sarlat that I intended to modify was already wired back to front and so corrected the site wiring! There is no wifi on the site, although I think Russ might be considering installing it. However, I got a full strength 3G signal on OrangeF which gave me a good enough internet connection for email, browsing and putting a Sainsburys order on for delivery when we got home.

All in all this is an excellent site for those wanting a quiet, peaceful location. Russ and Jayne were excellent hosts and seem to be committed to maintaining the sites high standards. I don't think too much will change, and neither does it need to. Because it is fairly remote, you can't just wander to the shop for your early morning croissants or baguettes which I always enjoy on French holidays, but that seemed a small price to pay for an otherwise first class site. The only drawback for me was a lack of shade when the weather got really hot. There are some trees but they are quite small, so don't give a lot of protection. As they get more mature this will improve, but for me, when the temperature was getting into the mid to high 30's I could have done with some respite. But then, if you go this far south in mid July I guess you have to expect it to be hot.

Just returned from a refreshing stay at La Tournerie. This is our 4th visit and once again was what we expected, peaceful, well run and a delight.

The new owners are really excellent hosts. Although new to caravanning themselves they are really looking forward to running the site with enthusiasm and passion.

The owner has a great sense of humour and a love of old 2Cv's

He listens to helpful advice from experienced caravanners on what is required and readily takes it on board. He has some plans to make the site even better without losing its endearing qualities.

Well done both of you we wish you well in your venture. We will be back!

This particular site has to be one of Frances best kept secrets. For anyone who wants tranquility

Fantastic setting with equally glorious views you cannot get any better. There is an abudance of walks lanes to explore and for our for legged friends fabulous.

the spotless facilities again are spot on and one has the use of washing facilities very useful for ones clothes,

Both Jenny, Puzzle, and myself look forward to many more visits and well done to Philip and Wendy who make you most welcome.

In the area there is an abundance of small eateries and Philip will point the visitor in the right direction. Montignac is a super small town with an excellent vets practise if needed, See you soon
