 We would just like to echo the excellent review given by Clive below.

We stayed for three nights at 11 Euros/night (caravan, 2 people and a dog)

Yes the site is basic and you do get a bit of road noise due to its close proximity to the town.

We also loved this simple site and would definitely stop again if in the area.

The town is lovely to explore and has an excellent market.

No Wifi.

 The previous reviews pretty much sum up this tiny campsite located just off the D840 as you enter Martel from the north (A20) - look out for the sign on the left hand hand side (travelling south) which leads to a narrow road, off which is the campsite. It's directly opposite the Auberge de Sept Tours - a good and cheap place to eat - less than 14 for 2 excellent courses with wine.

The campsite is as described. Basic but clean and yes, you can't be too prudish about the facilities being mixed sex. But remember, this is deepest France.

I love this campsite because of what it is. Basic, quiet, (a bit of traffic noise) with beautiful views over the valley. And being just a couple of hundred metres from the town centre of beautiful Martel makes it, for me anyway, ideal.

If you do stay, just set-up your camp and the warden (a very friendly chap) will arrive early evening to collect payment. He also turns up about 8 ish in the morning to 'catch' any late arrivals.

I can't remember exactly, but it was cheap - about 8 per night for a car, tent, me and my dog. The tariffs are shown on the notice board fixed to the toilet block.

If you like simple camping with no frills that is on the doorstep of a beautiful historic town (do read up on the history of Martel - it's fascinating) then this is a perfect site. I love it!

If you do decide to visit, be aware that it will get busy during the high season as Martel is a very popular town. As you can't pre-book (I tried) you may just have to take your chance. When I stayed, which was early June 2016, it was half-full at it's busiest.

It really is a lovely place to stay for anyone who likes tranquility, history, medieval architecture and good food - some great restaurants are located in the town square.

If you like markets, then Wednesday and Saturday are the days to visit.

 Reviewers - mature couple with campervan and bikes.

Spotted a campsite sign as we came into this medieval village, and decided to stay for a look round. The campsite is on the edge of the town centre, a 2 minute walk from a boulangerie and other shops.

The access to the site is up a narrow lane, the site is at the top, with rows of trees for shade, but some open areas too. The pitches are flat, grassy and mostly undivided, and there are EHU posts nearby.

The sanitary block looks quite new, and was clean enough, though the wind had blown lots of dead leaves inside. All facilities mixed sex, showers and basin cubicles at one end, toilets at the other. An extra disabled toilet plus open basins. No entrance door, so rather draughty! Washing up outside under cover. Water was hot.

It is just a few minutes walk into the Medieval centre, with lots of interesting buildings, we bought a town trail from the Tourist office.

The warden came round at 6ish to collect the fees, apparently he sometimes comes in the morning too. A very pleasant man.

The price was extremely cheap, we paid 8 euro plus tax. We would definitely use this site again, it is on the edge of the Dordogne region.

 We'd spotted this site driving through the town a couple of years ago, and this was our second visit. It is literally just behind the shops in a small, rather pretty town, with golden stone houses. It's very convenient for those travelling from the free section of the A20 to the lower part of the free A75.

The site is behind the church, on a hill overlooking a farming valley (noisy tractors in the morning at harvest time) and there is some noise from the rather busy main road through Martel, but this isn't a problem at night in low season. The lane to the site is steepish and you can easily miss the signpost. There are about 18 pitches, mostly under trees, in front of the Napoleonic War Memorial. There are some more open areas at one end and a couple of hardstanding pitches which may be useful late in the season.

The toilet block was very clean when we visited, and a local lady appeared twice a day to clean. The urinals are in plain view, which may not suit those who prefer separate areas for the sexes! Toilet have seats and paper, showers are nice and warm. As mentioned, the shower block has no doors so could be cold in cooler weather, and leaves might be a problem towards the end of season. It was 37 degrees when we were there, so cold was definitely not a problem.

This is a no frills site, (no on-site facilities) but very near to the lovely little town of Martel which has some pretty buildings, including a wooden 'market hall'. The town has shops, bars and restaurants, a couple of boulangeries (the worst croissants this holiday but delicious quiches!), there is a butcher, a general store, and a tabac and Maison de Presse. Free WiFi can be accessed 24 hours a day in the forecourt of the Bibliotheque where you can also exchange books which are kept in a little cupboard with a notice inviting you to take one book and donate another. The English Inspector Montalbano books are our donation!
