Reviewer: Drjbc 37 reviews from this member

We'd agree with other reviewers that this site is very 'British', almost comically so. At the entrance you have to drive over to the left, then the circulation is the British way round (clockwise) not the French (ani-clockwise)! Usually we like to practice the language etc, but in this case the exceptional helpfulness of the English owners certainly won us over.

The pitches have small hedges in between, but are quite crowded compared to most French sits; a row of vans with awnings would be hard-pressed to maintain the 6m rule for fire safety. But the free wifi is a great boon - why don't other site owners realise how important that is these days? Also that most units have several phones tablets etc, so access for a single MAC adress is useless?

There's good cycling along the south bank of the river going east from the site. In the town we can definitely recommend 'Le-8' restaurant for amazing quality and value. A 4-course dinner for four of us, with two bottles of wine, cost just 100 euros.

Very friendly welcome from the English owners and allowed to choose our pitch from those available. Pitches are of a reasonable size with trees for shade, but do have the feel of being close to your neighbours. The whole site is really clean and well maintained with mown grass etc. Water and drains at corner of pitch as is electricity at 10amps. Toilets and showers are spotless but limited in numbers but although the site was full there was never any waiting.

WiFi is free with good speed and coverage but is turned off overnight.

Swimming pool, table tennis, games room and small children's play area.

Site is beside the Dogdorne but fenced off from river. It's a short walk into St Foy le Grande and to the Super you supermarket. Canoe hire was available from the opposite bank (car ride away) but was book only on September and we did not see any Canoes on the river during our stay.

While we were on site there was a majority of British on site and the whole atmosphere was very friendly and everyone was very helpful as were the owners. Would recommend this site without hesitation.

We love this site. Very welcoming, owners very helpful and friendly. The site is beautifully kept, especially the grass, always neatly trimmed. A well landscaped site with interesting trees and shrubs. Lovely pool. Sanitary facilities always clean with plenty of hot water. Within walking distance of St. Foy which is so picturesque and interesting. St. Emilion, Montbazillac and Bergerac all a short distance away. Choice of supermarkets for shopping. In all, a very well run, well cared for site.

This is such a well placed camping site. Within walking distance to the shops and some good restaurants. Lots to do in the surrounding area. The site itself is well run, with attentive owners who do their best to help and advise. The site is neat, the grass clipped and the swimming pool very clean and well maintained. The toilet block had plenty of hot water and was spotless. Free wi fi, another bonus. Everyone here was so friendly - other campers so helpful. A very pleasurable experience.

Very English site in a lovely part of France. Pitches were small and very close to each other. Showers were clean but not very warm water! Nice clean swimming pool however did not use as it was too cold.

The town is easy to walk too, a very good market which is worth a visit to on a Saturday. Two large supermarkets Super you 5 - 10 min walk to and electric a 5 min car journey.

The owners were very helpful and very friendly.

My family and I (2 Adults and Children of 9, 3 and 2) spent a week on this campsite and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The site and facilities are spotless and well maintained.

The site is run by a very friendly and helpful British family, yet this doesn't mean that this is a 'Brit' site as we found an equal amount of British, French, Belgian and Netherlands families.

The pitch that we received was firm, flat and level grass with an easy access hook-up in the intersection of the pitch and a stop tap for our pitches too. It was well shaded and was approximately 5 metres away from a beautiful view across the Dordogne river. Another very appealing facility that isn't highlighted enough on the official site is that the whole campsite is covered by free wifi.

The site is located in a stunning area of France. It is approx 60 miles from Sarlat and the more touristy areas of the Dordogne but is only about 20 miles from St Emillion and the best wine growing regions of Bordeaux. We enjoyed canoeing down the river, visiting the historic sites, visiting the river 'beach' and just doing normal things like shopping, which gave us the opportunity to improve our pigeon French!

We really enjoyed our visit and will definitely be returning.
