Now isn't that funny, Moulin de Perie is about the only site we wouldn't go back to - and left early! It's a while since we were there - and we'd met the owners at several caravan shows, and were 'enticed' by them and their description of the site, to spend some time there. It was also an early Camping Cheques site.
I liked the pool, with the smell of fennel from all the plants around it, but otherwise we found it gloomy, (it was good weather so it wasn't that), isolated, and with nothing exciting within driving distance. We also thought the 'Gourmet Night' - heavily advertised and pushed by the owners - was an absolute rip-off, with supermarket pate, Confit de Canard from a tin (we'd had it many times before and knew the brand), and the smallest slice of tarte we'd ever eaten. We could have had better at the nearest supermarket cafeteria for 7 euros at the time.
We were planning to stay seven nights, but only stayed four and headed for Val de Cantobre for the remainder of our holiday. Another couple, there at the same time, did the same thing, but they moved on to the Alps.
Here's the 'Gourmet' night: (I'm in the foreground on the left):
What about Camping La Bouysse, at Vitrac - beautiful situation on the Dordogne river, three pools, and they have space when you want to go! It's not expensive, either. It's next to Soleil Plage, and shares a river beach - so there will be plenty of English families around to make friends with. 'TethersEnd' who posts regularly on here highly recommends to Take-away duck and potatoes. I've some photos of the rocks opposite both Soleil Plage and La Bouysse, and of the Chateau de Montfort which was within walking distance, just up river. I'll look them out and put them on.
Or Le Capeyrou, which is near to La Roque Gageac (in my original picture in this thread) and the Chateau at Beynac. That gets some good reviews on here, and is in a nice sunny situation.
Or Grottes de Roffy, near Sarlat, which appears on their website to have availability when you have to go. You can't always check on the websites themselves, or rely on them, but at least it's an indicator.
