Nice site close to Sarlat, easy to walk down to the town but uphill is steep on the way back. Site is on a hill and terraced, mixture of pitches with sun and shade.

We were told to pick where we liked to pitch within certain areas. Chose to be on a sunny terrace close to the facilities. Showers and toilets good, also plenty of hot water. Dish washing in the same block outside but under cover.

Outdoor pool not in use whilst we were there but the indoor pool was open and lovely on a hot day.

The town is lovely to visit and we will return to this site again, very reasonable price with the ACSI card.

We stayed for 6 nights at this site during the last week in August and feel that it's only fair to write an up to date review. We really enjoyed our break. We stayed in one of their wood and canvas tents, which was absolutely lovely. The facilities were modern and clean. There is a pretty pizza bar serving food and drinks until 10. 00pm. The staff were friendly and helpful. The site itself is fairly steep, but terraced, so the pitches are level. It is very shady with lots of trees and shrubs - perfect for hot, sunny days. The swimming pool area is tastefully laid out, with a small indoor pool for inclement weather: there are also ping pong tables and a children's play area. The position of the site is perfect for visiting the historic town of Sarlat - an easy 10 minute walk downhill into town and a slightly taxing 15 minute walk back - really not bad at all and easily manageable for middle-aged grandparents and children alike. We were slightly put off by older reviews, but since Indigo have taken over the site things have obviously improved significantly.

Yes, you may need a torch (bliss!) No, there are no pool flumes or cabaret (bliss!) - just a lovely ambiance and laid back, relaxed atmosphere. Well done Indigo, we shall definitely return.

We booked and prepaid for a 9 night stay last year. The website is very comprehensive and tells much of the nice facilities.

The site has a good rating on the AA camping guide to France so we felt confident that we were making the right choice.

The campsite is up a steep hill through the very busy medieval town of Sarlat and we arrived on Market day which was frankly terrifying getting through the traffic and crowds!

We have a 4 berth Ace and a hardy 2litre diesel estate but we arrived at the site only to be given a pitch, right up the top of the hill. We tried once to get up, and didn't succeed, the second time we got up but the entrance to the section was a total hairpin which was partially blocked by a mound of gravel. There were only tents and a very small tourer in the section so we went down to reception to explain the situation. We were told there's no more space available and it was that pitch or none- we had also paid in full so there was to be no refund.

We did not want to try again as the clutch nearly burned out on our second try.

I pride myself on researching sites thoroughly and there was no mention of the difficulty in accessing some of the pitches, in fact the steepness of the site was only mentioned in one review. I would not recommend this site to any double axle tourers, or even a mid sized tourer unless you had a big 4x4.

The site looked very nice but incredibly busy with children and families as it was peak season. We were so disappointed and it resulted in us having nowhere to stay for the 9 nights of our holiday. I believe the customer service could have been better handled as, frankly, we were left high and dry. We are pursuing a refund from our credit card issuer but we have learned our lesson to check the gradient on google earth Before setting off!

Reviewers - mature couple with car, tent and bikes.

We have used this site many times over the years and always look forward to coming back.

It is situated up a steep hill to the NE of the town centre, about 10 mins down on the bike, and 25mins pushing back up! It's a bit tricky to find, but just keep going round the ring road and it's signposted. The site is a wooded valley which rises up all around from the entrance, and the pitches are off terraced roads.

The pitches are mostly flat and grassy, though there is an area of gravel which is not suitable for tents. There are some stone chalets near the entrance.

The reception is at the entrance, the pleasant lady owner speaks good English. There is a small shop, and bar with TV. There is a snack bar but it has never been open when we have visited out of season. In the centre of the valley floor is the pool area, 1 heated indoor with sauna, plus outdoor swimming and kiddies pools, open all day and evening. Also a small playground and 2 tennis courts. Right at the top of the site is a large grass area suitable for sports, and further down a games room.

There are several toilet blocks, but only 1 or 2 have been open when we were there out of season. They are cleaned every day with bleach. Washing up is under cover. There are washing machines and dryers.

The narrow roads on the site are great for walking, cycling or jogging.

There are lots of shops and restaurants in town, which has a tourist trail, and a big market on Saturday.

The activities of the Dordogne region are nearby.

This campsite is expensive, but we consider it well worth the money. The only negative I can possibly think of is the steep hill up from the town. I believe the site may be up for sale, so check before you go.
