A fabulous Site

What a fabulous camp site this is. We visited in Sept meaning to stay for a week before moving on. We ended up staying for sixteen nights and only left because the site was closing for the season. Warm and friendly family run site that attracts many who return regularly and I fully understand why. Big pitches, with partial shade, full shade or open aspect hedges separating them. Excellent water and waste facilities, lovely clean and tidy toilet and shower blocks, well stocked shop. Great bar and a restaurant that gave the local ones a run for their money both on food quality and prices. We found ourselves eating here more often than we did at the local villages such was great food on offer. The owners go to great pains to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. There are loads of facilities, two pools, tennis court, badmington/volley ball court, playing field and river front where you can paddle or even swim in the Dordogne. The site is opposite the picturesque village of Limeuil that is well worth visiting with many interesting sites to see. This is a great central location from which to explore the rest of the Dordogne area. Being a cyclist I took advantage of the lovely quiet roads each and every day exploring the surrounding area. I was in cyclists heaven. Each town has a market which the camp site owners make sure you know about on their notice board. There are large supermarkets only 5 km away in the town of Le Bugue which is also worth a visit in itself. The owners and staff speak excellent English and appreciated my poor efforts at trying to converse in French. If you are looking for a great site for a family holiday, couples or retired this site has it all. Chapeau.

Wanted to stay longer

I've just stayed here for a week and was sad to leave - always a good sign. I received a friendly and helpful welcome at reception before being showed to a good sized hardstanding pitch. The site has everything that you need and is in a lovely location - I visted Bergerac by train and Le Bugue by bike. This is now a site on my "must return to" list.

We stayed here back in 2004 and it was near perfect then.

We stumbled upon this site while touring with our caravan back in 2004. When we found it we quickly returned to the site we were staying on, packed up and moved the Port de Limeuil, it was so stunning. The site is on the banks of the Dordogne at its confluence with the Vezere, you can walk straight out onto the stony river 'beach' from the site. There are also picturesque bridges across each river within easy walking distance from the site. Across the river is the stunning little village of Limeuil, perched on a hill and this is a must to visit. We were there for Bastille Day (14 July) and there was a small fair on the river bank and we sat outside our caravan and watch the fireworks above the village. The highlight of this site is swimming in the Dordogne! The wide river flows quite fast over the stony bed and this makes for exhilarating rides down on the current simply by sitting down in the water and leaning back. This site is so good that we returned for a day visit while staying at La Tournerie in Montignac in 2015. The site has grown and was busier that 2004, understandably, but the facilities on the site have been increased and are good and well cleaned. Excellent pool and shops, this site is well place for exploring the Dordogne and Vezere valleys. We are going back during our annual France Tour this year and will stay for longer.
