Excellent! asked for pitch near to lake/pool which we got. Pitch situated in trees in total shade, however this was very much needed as otherwise would have been toasted. Very clean site with swimming in lake, free canoes, inflatable trampoline and spinning thing in middle of lake.
You do need a French/English travel adapter and an English plugged caravan electric part for your cable, although reception did have French adapter which we borrowed and luckily had our English socket cable in caravan, Phew!
The campsite is split mainly over 2 parts with the majority of campers being at the top of the hill near to reception. Glad we were not there as it seemed quite packed but still very quiet. You can also book pitches with your own shower/toilet - some of these were always in full sun.
Be warned - they only take cash for all transactions, including pitch booking!
If you are a keen cyclist then this place is for you, otherwise leave bikes, including kids, at home.
The campsite is in great location for visiting surrounding area. Hire your canoes from canoeric at le bugue for trip on the quiet valeze river.
I would definitely go again. Easy to get to. We avoided Paris and went via Rouen, Dreux, Chatres on the N154, then joined A10 outside Orleans, A71 then A20 which takes you all way down to Dordogne, then come off onto A89 to junction 16 to Le Bugue on the D703 to Les Valades. Simple!
This is a fantastic site. On arrival we were asked to follow the owner to our pitch. We had reserved a pitch with private facilities. This was fantastic, a huge pitch with a pod at the back which consisted of shower, toilet and wash basin and wash up area. These pitches were a small walk down to the lake and the swimming pool but quite a hike up to the main reception area. There was a table tennis table near the lake and another near the reception area where there were also some board games etc. You could order bread croissants from the reception for the following morning. There was also a restaurant which we ate at one night each week where the food was great. They also did a take away service and the pizzas were fantastic.
The lake itself had canoes which you could use a trampoline and a spinning inflatable in.
There were quite a few people fishing. The nearest supermarket was approx 10 mins away by car.
The area itself was fantastic with lots if interesting towns nearby. We had a couple of canoe trips down the dordogne.
As previous review said some of the pitches without facilities were quite shady so I would specify what kind of pitch you would like when booking.
Overall a fantastic site and fantastic area. I would like to return another year because there was so much more to see.
On arrival at this site we were shown to our pitch by the very helpful family owners. Found the pitch to be in complete shade which was not to our liking. But when asked if we could change our pitch to one that had more sun. We were quickly reallocated another one.
We found that some of the pitches were something to be desired as not all flat or grassy but were divided with hedges to the side and partly to the front, which greatly restricts your view. Our pitch measured 33x24' not quite big enough for our large awning and to sit out front, but bigger ones are available, be sure to request them.
The complete site is very undulating so hard work if you are disabled or like ourselves a little on the portly side. The swimming pool was lovely but was overrun with Dutch and French children the second week of july.
There is bread delivered to order everyday, but the site could do with having a small shop available. The restaurant meals were delightful.
