A very enjoyable, small and quiet, Dutch run campsite.
During our 10 day stay most of the families on the campsite were also Dutch with just a few French families.
Basic but clean toilet/shower block which always seemed to have hot water.
There is use of a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Wifi connection - just ask the owner for access
There are pitches in both the sun and shade. Some of the shade pitches are by a very small stream that the children loved paddling / playing in and not too deep to be of any particular danger - under surveillance of course !
There is no play area as such for children but there was a central grassy area where the children could play football, boules.
In the office there are plenty of tourist information leaflets.
There are no other facilities on the campsite but the local village is within walking distance - about 5 minutes. Here there is a bakery and a little corner shop selling the basic food essentials including local cheeses etc.
The closest large supermarket was about a 10/15 minute drive away near Tulle.
There are no cafes or restaurants in Clergoux but some nice ones slightly further afield.
There are quite a few lakes in the region most of which you can swim in - one in particular with a slide for the little ones and a platform to swim out to for the bigger ones.
The campsite is very close to (3km) the Chateau de Sedieres - 15th Century castle with its extensive cycle paths for all levels (French Cycle-Touring Federation centre). Every summer the castle hosts a festival of exhibitions, entertainment (children’s shows, contemporary music and opera) and other events.
Keeps your eyes open for local markets especially those that are in the late afternoon and then lead into a village fete with music, regional dancing.
Brive is an enjoyable day trip particularly on market day.
It is not a particularly touristy area (not for the British anyway, more so for the Dutch as I said above) but we found that there was plenty to do. Hilly landscape (up to 600 m), woody with lots of lakes, rivers and streams. A lovely waterfall walk at 'Cascades de Gimel'
So yes, it is a very small and basic campsite but with the essential facilities. All in all a very relaxed and peaceful place to be.
