Reviewer: Slj76 6 reviews from this member

We spent 10 nights here having stopped off in Paris first for a trip to Eurodisney. We had a really easy trip down from Paris and a warm welcome upon arrival. This site and the whole local area provided us with the relaxing break we were looking for after a hectic 3 days at Disney.

Our boys are 3 and 7 and this site was perfect for them. Our pitch was adequately sized for our fully erected trailer tent (over 7m long) and gave some much needed shaded area. We hired a fridge for €60 which was essential for us. There are pre-erected tents dotted around all the touring pitches and also lots of mobile homes too. I'd say the vast majority of people were Dutch with the rest being made up of French and British.

The unisex toilet facilities were nearby and were always pretty clean though could get very busy at times. The hot water was sometimes a bit lacking during peak times and although initially impressed that the showers (and infact all of the taps) allowed you to change the temperature, they tended to be a bit difficult to regulate and would either be scorching or freezing! We soon found the best times to go to avoid this though. There was also a useful parent and child shower area which was ideal for us. The washing up sinks were really good and there were plenty of them in our block.

Although there were a couple of nights with entertainment, it is not full on and most nights we just sat watching the hot air balloons fly overhead. The takeaway pizzas were fantastic and the lunch from the snack bar served really good food. We didn't eat at the restaurant but the menu looked nice and plenty of people were using it. The shop has the basics and we naturally went up every morning for our croissants and baguette. One great feature is the ability to fill a bottle with wine!

The pool area was very busy during our stay in the peak of the French holidays and if you arrived mid afternoon you struggled to get a lounger immediately. The pool area itself was safe for the children and provided enough for both of them to enjoy. The slides are just right for younger children.

Great site from which to explore this part of the Dordogne. We'll definitely be back!

We arrived at 9. 15pm after a long journey from Calais (delays around Paris)and were greeted by Francis who took us around on his golf trolley to inspect three possible sites for our large Vango Diablo tent. We chose one by the river and with lots of space. The site is well maintained and with exceptionally clean toilet blocks, cleaned two or thee times a day.

The site was made up of 50% Dutch, 1/4 English and the rest French. Everyone was really friendly. My daughter and I went to several aqua zumba classes in the pool. Never a problem to get a sun lounger. Plenty for the children 16, 15 and 12 to do. Wifi only 2 euros a week so everyone was happy. Ping pong tournaments, cycle rides, live music etc

Lots of cycle paths, 15 minutes bike ride to the nearest village with shops and a market. The campsite no longer has a tennis court so we biked to the village to play, for free as the site had an arrangement.

Didn't try the restaurant although it looked busy every night and did take outs too.

Really relaxing, quiet - can't wait to return.

We spent the last week of July, first week of August at Moulin de Paulhiac after it was recommended to us by a friend who had been 2 years in a row. Once we arrived we realised the majority of campers were there because of a recommendation they'd had from someone else - a bit of a 'word-of-mouth gem'.

This is a smallish site, but suited us perfectly. (2 children 10 & 7). It has none of your brash, loud, all night entertainment, but had everything we needed to keep us happy. Facilities include a well stocked shop, with helpful staff (try their own wine from the barrels, just take along your empty water bottles for a re-fill), an excellent takeaway which served fabulous pizzas and huge orders of fries, laundry, WiFi (2 euros/wk), basketball, boule, table tennis, badminton, small playground and swimming pool with 3 tame slides and 2 smaller pools for little ones. We ate at the restaurant on our last night and thought the food was excellent and good value.

The site is quite mature so the pitches were generally lovely and shady. On the whole pitches are quite large and well delineated and most seemed to have services very close by. We had a stand pipe and electricity at the back corner of ours that served the 4 pitches around it. We got a good choice of pitches when we arrived, which is always nice.

We were near the larger of the 2 toilet blocks and there were plenty of showers, toilets, basins and washing up sinks to cope and I never had to wait. The smaller block looked a bit small for the number of campers it had to service, so campers in that part of the site might not have had the same experience. Everything was in pretty good shape and always clean, they scrubbed and hosed the place down every morning and cleaned through the day.

There is a kids club and evening animation like ping pong competitions, but my kids were happy playing with their friends, so can't really tell you much about these.

There is a lovely stream running through the site, which makes an excellent alternative to the pool for cooling down. If you have an inflatable you can float down the stream from one end of the site to the other, very sweet and a lot of fun.

Patricia and Francis are the owners. If Francis speaks/understands English, he keeps this fact to himself! For those deficient in French, Patricia speaks excellent English. She has to be the most helpful owner we have come across. We had a couple of occasions to ask for advice on excursions and she very willingly rang around for us to get info for us. I think they run a restaurant in the winter, so don't be put off if you want to book here and hear nothing, they do eventually get back to you in about May - I know that can be unnerving, but once they reply, communication with them is excellent.

There are plenty of supermarkets nearby to stock up and a fish van came to the site on Wednesday mornings. We hired a fridge so we didn't need to shop too frequently and makes things much easier I find.

The great thing about the location of the site is that although on a map it looks like it's a bit isolated, it really isn't. There are great days out really close; chateau, caves, markets and of course canoeing the river. There are also lovely and easy bike rides from the site.

We met many campers who had been to this site before and others who would be re-booking. We loved it here and had a fabulous holiday. The area is great, but having a lovely place to stay made our time in the Dordogne really special.

We first visited this site in 1982 when it had been open for about 5 years. Since then we have visited 16 times with a caravan and 2 growing children (until 2000), then 5 times (each year from 2008 until 2012) in our tent. Two years ago, we had a family return with our (then 29 years old) son & his girl friend in 1 pitch and our (then 32 year old) daughter, husband & 18 month old in another. I'll try for a brief review!

Francis & Patricia (Armagnac), the owners, have sensitively developed this site to become commercially successful without losing sight of the family oriented nature which we have always felt.

There are broadly 3 distinct areas of the camp site each of which has a different ambience. On entering and turning left this is the most mature area with plenty of shade provided by the walnut trees (from it's previous existence as a farm.

Francis's father, Renée, still lives across the road in the main farmhouse. ). There is a choice of pitches delineated by hedges or more open aspects of numbered pitches.

One of the toilet blocks is very close. Alternatively, continue further towards the river (Le Ceou) where, still with shade, pitches feel less enclosed and you would be closer to the larger of the 2 toilet blocks.

At the far end of the campsite is our favoured area where you might feel you are closer to 'camping sauvage' with the possibility of camping on the river's edge and seeing kingfishers & jays and hearing woodpeckers, etc. Even here, as with all other areas, there is the possibility of electrical hook-up. (Francis can provide long cables if you don't have one).

Current facilities are extensive: 2 large toilet blocks with predominantly English style loos, multiple showers with copious hot water, crockery and clothes washing facilities which easily support campsite volumes of visitors, Wifi (at the bar area) for €2/week (not a typo!), prebooked refigerators for camper's hire, camp-site shop, laundry machines, tennis, table tennis, boules tournaments, frequent and extensive 'animations' (dances, Perigord evening featuring local food, concerts, fireworks, etc. ), restaurant, bar, camp shop, swimming pool with large slides into a separate area, young children's play area and separate pool for them.

Dependent on the type of camper you are, you can easily escape from, or integrate with any of the action, and so it is likely to suit families with a wide range of interests. Families with younger members will enjoy pottering in/near the Ceou river, reading & just cooling, floating, using fishing nets or building dams and then breaking them apart!

Bring your bikes to enjoy the (flat) local cycle routes between Dalan, St Cybranet & Castelnaud.

You can get most foodstuffs at the camp shop or from Daglan (boulangerie closed Monday) where there is a small supermarket (closed lunch times & Sunday afternoon). Hypermarkets are at Gourdon (30 mins) or Sarlat (a little nearer).

You won't be bored by a full 2 week holiday (or longer) in this region: caves, castles, chateaux, canoing, cycling, historic towns, gourmet food.

Must stop writing what appears, on rereading, to be a promotional advert! But it's why we keep coming back. See you next year!
