Really loved this site and had a great stay with our two kids aged 7 and 10.

Our pitch was large, hedged with a lovely aspect. It was a super pitch with water and drainage.

Loo blocks great. Showers amazing, computerised wonders. Unisex. Amazing baby and toddler showers and baths. Clean and a good number.

Playgrounds. Better for younger children, but good climbing rope affair in the forest.

Swimming a huge hit. One large pool, a medium and a baby pool. Water slide which my children loved. A huge bonus is the swimming lake which we took a boat out on and our dog loved swimming in.

Atmosphere great. Predominantly Dutch, very polite campers. Owners really helpful and helped my in-laws when their fridge broke.

We had great weather and were sad to leave.

Nice site but be warned this is owned by the Dutch so if you want playmates for your British kids think again 96% Dutch here.

Showers and toilet blocks clean but showers on the cold side more like taps at high level than showers wifi was rubbish, my phone connection was faster. The site is heavily wooded so if you like your sky tv forget that as well. Aside these things it's well kitted out for families and has a nice pool area. But don't expect a quiet stay as family based so child tastic !

Oh band on Wed night till midnight very loud!

Chateau Le Verdoyer is a 4-star campsite situated in the Perigord Vert just outside the small village of Champs-Romain and approximately 14km east of Nontron. Reception is a little distance away from the car park in one of the Chateau’s outbuildings. All reception staff speak good English so signing in is a doddle. They give you a map of the site showing your pitch and explain the facilities available. The camping area is a bit hilly and the roads are quite tight. Some of the roads are marked unsuitable for caravans so you need to take care when finding your pitch. Having said that, most of the pitches look to be easy to access once you have found them. All of the pitches are large, they all have electricity (French style plug required), and a water tap. Some pitches also have drainage and the more expensive pitches also have private toilet facilities. For the less well off, there are three toilet blocks dotted around the site. These have toilets with seats, individual sinks, and push button showers with no temperature control. We felt that the showers could have been a little warmer. The toilets were kept reasonably clean most of the time. There are no chemical disposal points at the blocks; the only one is in the car park which is quite a distance from most pitches.

Chateau Le Verdoyer has plenty of facilities. There is a good bar / snack bar, a small shop, a nice restaurant within the chateau (good food but not everyday prices), a good swimming pool complex with slide, two fishing lakes, a swimming lake, football pitch, play grounds, and plenty of room to play. Twice a week they run tours inside the chateau. They also have plenty going on for the children and entertainment on some evenings. Everything goes quiet at 10pm except on concert nights.

The closest supermarket is about 5 minutes away in Saint-Saut-Lacoussiere but it is very small, more like a corner shop. A better supermarket can be found in Saint-Pardoux-La-Riviere which is about 15 minutes from the site. This is a Simply Supermarket (small Auchan) and has a good range of products including fresh milk. You can also get fuel here. If you want a really large supermarket then your best bet is the Super-U in Nontron.

The Perigord Vert is not as commercialised as the part of the Dordogne that runs along the river, but that doesn’t mean there is nothing to do. Close by there are a number of chateaux, swimming lakes, 2 velorails, Brantome with its abbey and Nontron. Going north there is Limoges and the martyr village of Oradour-Sur-Glane. There was a tragedy here at the end of the war and the village has been kept exactly as it was on that day. It’s an interesting and moving day out. There are also plenty of circular walks in the area, one of which passes the bottom of the campsite. A map can be bought at reception.

We stayed here for 18 nights and had a great time. We were here in peak season and it never felt crowded. I would recommend it.

This site is part of the Dutch-owned Kawan group and is very well-run and well-maintained. The Dutch are very keen campers and caravanners and their sites are always good.
Like so many sites in France it's in the grounds of a chateau, plasantly wooded and with fishing lakes as well as an attractive swimmimg pool. We were there in June, so as it wasn't high season not all the facilities were open.
The pitches vary a lot in size and shape, and most are shaded. We were given a choice of half a dozen. The main toilet block is excellent, as long as you don't mind unisex! It had brilliant facilities for kiddies - tiny toilets, raised showers, little baths shaped like cars, Micky Mouse taps, etc.
There is a pleasant bar and takeaway in the old stable courtyard, but we found the food rather dear. There's also a posh restaurant in the chateau itself. We thought the shop was rather basic given the size of the site, but perhaps that's because it wasn't high season. Otherwise it's 10 miles to the nearest supermarket in Nontron.

The surrounding countryside is green and wooded with little in the way of habitation. We visited Brantome, 30 km away, which is known as the Venice of the Perigord. It's a pretty little town with medieval and Renaissance buildings and a large abbey, all surrounded by the River Dronne. We also went to the Grottes du Villars, where there is a guided tour of the cave system, which has spectacular stalactites and stalagmites and some neolithic wall paintings.

Although there isn't a lot to do in the area it's a pleasant base for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

Stayed here for 10 days at the end of August. The weather originally wasn't on our side, it rained solidly for 2 days. But once the rain stopped we really found what a great site this was. Its a real mix of tents / mobile homes, bungalows and statics. Some of the english caravan companies are represented but not in great numbers, lots of the campers seemed to be Dutch when we were there.

The campsite is quite big but extremely well run. When we arrived we were given a choice of which pitch we fancied with the staff member offering their recommendation based on their knowledge of the site. We took their recommendation and had a huge pitch which made our Khyam Ontario 6 look small and at 7.5m long that's some going.

The facilities where spotless, the young girls who seemed to make up the staff were 'everpresent' or so it seemed, the showers; toilets; sinks etc are all in one large building with no specific mens / womens, but there were more than enough to go around and always clean. The shop is really well stocked and reasonably priced. The pool area is really well looked after a large heated outdoor pool, a kids pool, a smaller pool and a slide area. Plenty of seats and sunbeds even when the temperature reached 37o there were always enough seats for those who wanted them. There is a bar which sells takeaway meals and this was very popular and again reasonably priced.There are also organised evening entertainment, singers and BBQ's etc.

The kids club was enjoyed by our kids, 8 and 5, they made some good friends and had lots of fun. Fishing is really good, the lake is well stocked and catching fish seemed to be a case of putting your rod in the water with some bait on and waiting a minute or two (our 5 year did it and caught 5 fish in about 10 minutes)according to my sources they were quite decent sized tench and carp!

The nearest town is Nontron and is about 10 mins in the car. This is a good place for supermarkets, boasting a Super U, and Intermarche and an Aldi. It's also a good place to explore with some very interesting public buildings open to the public. Canoeing from Brantone is interesting and not too far away. This is a really good site, a bit away from the main Dordogne sites admittedly, but definitely worth a visit and in an interesting enough area in its own right.
