 What a fabulous campsite.

Very helpful and friendly staff and stunning location on the banks of the Dordogne in the shadow of Beynac Chateau.

Spotlessly clean toilets and showers and Stunning pool area with children’s pool.

It has everything you need for the perfect holiday and was exceptionally quiet and peaceful considering the place was full.

Can’t wait to return next year

 I can’t add much to the already great reviews except to say that we loved it so much we extended our stay!

Just a fantastic site, although select your pitch with a thought to where the sun rises and sets as in the morning in September we were in shade and it was quite chilly.

The pitches in the sun in the morning were a lot warmer! We took our bikes (I have an ebike which was a godsend and my husband is a regular cyclist) and in 10 days only used the car once.

We would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful site but be aware that they no longer accept ACSI and in the middle of September they were the only campsite in the area that was pretty much full so if you are definitely heading for Le Capeyrou then it might be an idea to book.

 Lovely site right on the bank of the Dordogne overshadowed by the fantastic castle towering above.

Lots to do, we spent a leisurely couple of hours canoeing for example. Beynac is touristy but picturesque. It was a bank holiday when we visited so it was very busy.

The campsite itself is well laid out with quite large pitches on grass.

The unisex Showers toilets & washing facilities are spotless.

Reception was tremendous, accommodating and helpful, even remembering my name after one meeting.

The bar on site was good with a pleasant outdoor seating area.

Two good shops just across the road and restaurants less than 5 minutes walk away.

 We stayed at this campsite for 10 nights for our first ever trip to the Dordogne. The pitches are well kept and spacious. We had water point electric and drainage.

The facilities are mixed but very good. Showers are clean as are the toilets. The swimming pool is basic compared to some as there are no slides etc but we could always find a seat at the pool side.

The best thing about the site is its location right on the river side with beautiful views of the castle. We ate at the restaurant Terrasse du Chateau in Beynac which was lovely. The boulangerie and butchers and general shop across the road are very good. There are supermarkets in Sarlat about 30mis away.

The staff are very helpful and speak some English. The bar is quite expensive and they do not serve food although different food vans come to the site each evening.

 We had 2 weeks at this excellent campsite and thoroughly enjoyed it. The setting is beautiful with views of the castle and the hot air balloons that float past every evening. There’s also a nice mix of nationalities with French, Dutch, German and English people around.

The campsite is a good size - not too big, not too small. The pitches are large and most have shade as the campsite is well planted with lovely trees and as there are only pitches down one side of each little drive you get plenty of privacy. The toilets and showers are clean and plentiful, though at peak times the hot water ran out in the block next to the swimming pool. This was easily solved by going to the older toilet block nearer to reception where there was never a problem.

The swimming pool is lovely with plenty of loungers and chairs. It did get pretty busy in the late afternoon though. There is alternative swimming in the river from the stony beach which was wonderful - very clear water and loads of space to splash around in. The kids have a small playground in the centre of the site plus a large games field at one end with football goals and a trampoline.

The staff are very friendly and helpful - helped with a hook up adapter and booked canoeing for us. The bar is reasonably priced and although it doesn’t serve food, nearly every night there is a pop-up street food vendor. The pizzas were particularly nice. There’s also a small supermarket, butchers and bakers just opposite the entrance. Again prices are not ridiculous.

There’s loads to do in the local area: Sarlat, Castelnaud castle, gardens at Marquessac (especially the candlelit evenings), the caves at Lascaux, canoeing, Dom.

I’d heartily recommend this site.

 Lovely well-maintained site by the river, walking distance to town and there's a place that arranges canoe trips from almost next door.

The sanitary facilities were modern and clean, though the laundry was inadequate for the number of pitches.

Reviewer: Kemu19 16 reviews from this member

 Very friendly reception and allowed us to choose a pitch and pay on departure, However it was very busy even in June I suppose due to being in Cool Camping and all the good reviews on here. Good stuff - fabulous views of the chateau at Beynac, flat pitches, wonderful new pool and loungers, very nice bar area, very good spotless showers and a boulangerie opposite.

Bad stuff - next to a busy road, quite noisy because of roadworks (rebuilding a wall along the river), couldn't swim in the river as too fast and high and there didn't appear to be a beach (although these things aren't the campsites fault). Do walk up to the chateau as the views are amazing.

Used ACSI card so great value for such super facilities. I think it is predominantly an adult orientated site and area.

 Just got back from Le Capeyrou. A superb campsite which we found through earlier good reviews on Ukcampsite so I thought it only right that I write my own review which may hopefully help other fellow campers.

The site is spacious and the pitches are very generous divided by hedges. The staff are helpful and all speak good English. The toilet/shower blocks are unisex which is a first for us and my wife thought might seem a bit weird but actually it works well, they are modern and are kept clean. The pool is great, a good size, very clean and new looking with lots of sun loungers but not so many parasols. There is a bar to socialise in the evenings and although they don't do their own food they do have a variety of outside food vendors there on selected nights. Just outside the site is a small supermarket, a bakery & a butchers.

The location and the view are stunning. The site is literally on the banks of the Dordogne and in the shadow of the beautiful and imposing Chateau de Beynac high above you.

The steep climb to visit the Chateau is worth the walk.

The site is an ideal base to visit other places in the areas, Sarlat 10km away with its market on a Wednesday is especially good.

It was our first stay at Le Capeyrou but it won't be the last.

Reviewer: Skiiddy 10 reviews from this member

 We chose this site thanks to the reviews from fellow members and how accurate they are!

Our journey began from Le Havre arriving on time at 0830 on 21st May after an overnight crossing from Portsmouth – brilliant! We had to wait for friends on the other side of passport control (opportunity for our dogs to do their business) and began our road trip at 09:30 proper. Having taken the advice of fellow campers, we subscribed to the ATMB offer for a free toll Tab and approached our first “t” gate with trepidation…. Eh Voilà! Bleep! and up the barrier went (this was going to speed things up, significantly). Our friends Tab didn’t work at first but repositioning on the windscreen (important) did the trick. Our mostly motorway journey took us west of Paris through Orlean on to Limoges where shortly after, the trusted satnav instructed us to take a right for “Salat”; time now was approaching 1800 and this was the part of the journey that was going to be a little slow. The road is winding but excellent and we passed through some beautiful villages climbing up in to the hills with spectacular scenery. Our decent brought us to Salat; Beynac 11km.

As we turned a sweeping right hand bend, we could see the most beautiful Château high up on a rocky faced cliff top which was spectacular; Le Capeyrou signpost leered up – made it (time 19:07) 9. 5 hours and 434 miles later (including a total of 2 hours for breaks).

Parking up, we popped in to reception and were greeted by Benjamin; a handsome fellow (according to my wife) with a beaming smile and a warm welcome. Ben gave us a plan of the site and pointed us in the direction of pitch numbers 12 and 13 – exactly what we had asked for when we booked on 4th January – perfectly sited overlooking the Dordogne which is approximately, 5 meters from the campsites boundary fence. We offered to settle our bill but Ben insisted that we should concentrate on setting up and come and see them on Monday as there was a thunderstorm due later that evening (yikes!). Everywhere we looked; the entrance, reception, pitches, roads even the trees are immaculate but the view up to the château was truly beautiful.

Having completed our pitch on pretty good time, some exploring was due. Firstly, the pitches are very good and all are serviced. Not a complaint, merely an observation but our pitches were wide and not so deep. Deep enough to park our trailer sideways and our 4x4 in front but we pitched the Biscaya and our friends Esvo width ways as neither would have fitted from the front of the pitch to the back without some overhang on to the road/path of the campsite. Our pitches were separated by three small bushes which our camp table straddled creating a a nice dining area with a DD tarp over the top – perfect! We noted that some of the hook-ups were a little further than usual but we learnt later that this was being corrected in the near future. Water is available to every pitch and all are level. Some of the pitches along the Dordogne boundary have high hedges between pitches and along the boundary fence so you will have limited views and this end is also west facing so you will get the later sun which could be a problem in the height of the summer. Our nearest ablutions block had only recently been added with a lovely laundry and kitchen washing up area along with a disabled toilet/shower. Stairs rise to the first floor where the facilities are shared but with ample privacy; lots of WC and shower cubicles (lack of hooks but this was missed by the builders and was being seen to) with a large cubicle that included a wash basin). What amazed us is there are no push button showers! Yeap…free flowing warm/hot showers! The older block to the right of the entrance does have push button showers but they are more powerful. The reception leads to a lovely, large bar with plenty of seating which overlooks the terrace area which has an abundance of seating too. The pool (infinity) has some strict (common sense rules); shoes must be removed before entering and use the foot bath. The actual pool (heated) is wonderful with a children’s pool (heated) too which is equally lovely. Plenty of sunbeds although I suspect they would be in short supply if the site was maxed out. Eurocamp have a dozen or so safari tents but single sex groups are not permitted; it really is aimed at adults and families. Le Capeyrou has its own gate access to the path that runs parallel to the Dordogne; right and you are in the village centre in 10 minutes; left and you will reach the “beach” in five. The river was flowing very fast and we saw very little activity but we ventured out in our own inflatable canoes and did a trip down to Le Garrit, a campsite about 11km from our site; breathtakingly beautiful and so peaceful. Took about 1. 5 hours (very little paddling – river did most of the work!)

Opposite the site is a Boulangerie, butcher and general shop which are all lovely, especially the Boulangerie; bread, croissant, pan au chocolate and cakes to die for. Make sure you put in a standing order, they sell out fast. 11km to the east lies Salat with plenty of supermarkets and the town (medieval) is beautiful; large market on Saturday’s. To the west through Beynac lies Saint Cyprien, a small town with a Carrefour supermarket and petrol station (this is the cheapest at about 1. 14 euros for diesel a litre). Maria, one of the owners was wonderful and sorted out our trip to the vet for our boy’s worm tablets; 25 euros each, bargain!

Beynac is a stunning village with a good choice of restaurants and we had a wonderful dinner at Le Petite Tonnelle and very nice lunch at Hotel du Château. There are some good choices around the actual château but most were closed and are perhaps, more seasonal. Incidentally, the walk to the château is worth the effort (you can drive if you want to and there is free parking at the top) and the views to Castelenaud (the English castle) and across the Dordogne are fab. Castelenaud is well worth the 8-euro entrance and will leave you grinning when you find out the history!

We took a trip to Bergerac (OK I guess – didn’t see much other than the wine museum interesting – bought a poster) about 1 hours’ drive mainly to visit Monbazzic and the vineyards (desert wines – our favourite) to stock up…. Stunning and well worth the trip.

In addition, we visited Monpazier which was beautiful with some great restaurants; Le Criquant was our choice in Rue Saint-Jacques, lovely.

Whilst we had booked for 12 nights, our trip was cut short due to industrial action by dock workers and we returned a couple of days earlier on a different ferry from Cherbourg to Poole. The weather? Well, you have probably seen on TV and read about some of the worst rain in 30 years to hit France and we did not escape it either! 8 days of rain, intermittently and first but then, non-stop for the last couple of days which was a shame. Don’t get me wrong, we would not hesitate to return to this site and the location to continue exploring just perhaps in late June or early September!

PS. Amazing thunderstorms and take a tarp if you are tenters, helps if you have to pack up in heavy rain!

 We arrived on Sunday 6th September, check in was great, staff very friendly. Site looked tidy and quite busy. We'd prebooked a river side pitch which we were allocated, however the complete lack of grass was a bit of a disappointment but I guess a busy summer and months of groundsheets! We pitched and got the awning up etc. Shower and toilet facilities were clean although the showers could have been a bit warmer. We didn't use the pool but it looked good. Benyac is beautiful and has a good range of restaurants and small shops, some of the restaurants were closed on Monday so check ahead.

All was good but a bit dusty until the thunderstorm came. And the constant rain for 3 days. Dusty mud + rain = mudbath.

The wifi around the bar area was shockingly useless! The bar was good although €6. 80 for a beer quite pricey.

The sites position was lovely however I wouldn't go back in mid to late September as a lot closes down very quickly,
