Lovely site in a beautiful location

Perfect for exploring this glorious part of the Dordogne, close to Sarlat and Les Eyzies. Lots of beautiful places to visit and attractions to see. The pitches are of generous sizes, well laid out, well kept and separated by mature hedges and enough trees to provide shade in hot weather. The facilities are excellent and kept spotlessly clean. The staff are friendly efficient and helpful and the overall ambience is generally peaceful. The restaurant provides excellent food at reasonable prices. There is some traffic noise from the busy road which runs alongside. This is not obtrusive at night but does get busy quite early in the morning. A word of caution here - do be careful when entering or exiting the site, the entrance is located on a straight section of road which seems to be a favourite place for overtaking. Be sure to look both ways on exiting and watch out for over takers when turning in. Having said this, I would certainly recommend the site and would unhesitatingly visit again

Great location for touring the Dordogne area

Situated just outside the beautiful town of Sarlat and close to a number of wonderful places of interest, this site is a must if you are visiting the area. Spacious pitches, clean facilities and staff that are very attentive. Add this to the cleanliness of the site, the swimming pool, and the quality of the restaurant, take away, and bar areas and what more could you want? Yes, there is a little road noise but this doesn't impact on the quality of the site. When visiting the Dordogne next time, this will be my site of choice.

Great site

We've stayed here June 2015 and returned in June 2016. Needless to say it's an excellent site, well kept pitches and friendly, helpful staff. The owners live on the site and are involved in the day to day running of the site. The pool area is very good. As usual with Castels sites the restaurant is spot on!

Friendly, Welcoming Site

Warm, friendly welcome from the staff Site restaurant (indoor service) excellent Generally site kept very clean and tidy - shower and toilet facilities especially so Well located for main sites in the area Excellent pool. Young children all appeared very happy We had a fully serviced pitch situated on the lower terrace close to the lake. The pitches were of a good size and well maintained. These pitches are next to a busy road and some members might find this a problem

Another nice stay

Friendly and helpful staff. Large pitches, with super pitches having a hut containing a fridge, microwave, outdoor table and chairs and sun loungers! Nice fishing lake with good size fish, (caught by others!). Good size swimming pools with a separate section for small children. Excellent meal at the restaurant. Also a useful takeaway. Activities mainly started after 1st July and cater for all. Plenty of places to visit near by, but have a visit to Sarlat at night, it very good. WiFi available, ( 19 euro for 7 days) Need to pay tourist tax at the start.

Would go again

Arriving earlier than booked in (7.15pm instead of midday next day) after phoning ahead due to a good journey was met in heavy rain and quickly directed to emplacement. The following day after a good nights sleep set up the van and awning before registering. Excellent reception service and the staff throughout the site could not have been better. A meal in the restaurant that evening led to two other visits during our stay. Weather conditions had made the site very wet but as the ground broke up during the first week additional groundwork was undertaken with hardcore being added. Excellent fishing, good facilities (not all toilets etc were open due to only being part booked up). The only downside would be for persons with Mobility problems as the main areas ablutions are up steep slopes. However pitches near the excellent pool give good access to the nearby toilet block.There is some little noise from the nearby road if you are on the lower area of the site but not to the degree of being a nuisance. Big thank you to Fred and Valerie (and Constance and the remainder of the staff) whose presence was instrumental to us having a good relaxing holiday.

Good Site, but expensive for us.

No problems at all with this site, it was very quiet when we were there 30th May to 2nd June. Staff very helpful and facilities clean, I think the cleaning staff outnumbered the customers! Our only problem was that we apparently booked a CP rather than an EL pitch, I don't know whether this was my mistake or not, but as I'm not equipped for piped water and drainage connections and certainly didn't want the other extras, I can't understand why I would.

Amazing Campsite

We are returning for a fourth time this year as we have always had such a good time at Moulin Du Roch.

We have a caravan and choose to have a pitch at the bottom near the pool overlooking a field (sometimes with and sometimes without some splendid cattle). There is a stream that runs by and we occasionally here the plop of a frog jumping in!

The restaurant is simply fantastic and better than any campsite eatery I've ever been to. The menu might not change much in our three week stay but we go back several times.

The site is run by the most delightful family and their staff are simply excellent - most speaking passable English - often some English staff too. Our children love the always exuberant Pomme, the anamatrice and several other staff have gone out of their way to help us (Katy in particular when we had some trouble with a online theme park booking last summer).

I am always amazed that the loos never have queues and they are always spotless. Its a shame that the chemical toilet waste point is near them and it would be great if there was somewhere else to deposit our waste without having to lift it so high! (My fault for not emptying more often!)

Some reviewers on other sites comment about the road noise.  Yes, it is by a road and yes, there is the occasional lorry. We have a pitch very close and it really isn't an issue. The campsite is wonderfully quiet at night (even if we have been lively in the bar until midnight!)

Internet - this has always been a problem for the site. If people just checked the occasional email and light browsing then the connection shared across the site would be fine (The actual WiFi coverage is excellent) but once streaming video is involved it is very bad. The problem is that France Telecom refuse to install a fibre to the site, so they rely on a Satellite Internet Connection. I recommend that English campers change their phones to Three and use their free roaming offer. Indeed, I brought my own satellite internet connection so I could stream the Ashes last year!

Although there is an excellent TV in the bar, this year we are there during the Olympics and as the time delay from Brazil means most of the exciting stuff will be very late at night, I will be bringing my own TV satellite dish. (Beware, there are lots of trees and it won't work on all pitches).

There are so many wonderful things about this campsite that our children (7 and 9) love it and won't consider anywhere else. They have the Dance of the Summer on constant play in the car. This is a quiet site, perhaps not so much to to for teenagers but we look forward to August once again!

Great Holiday!!!

Took grandchildren for their first taste of France (aged 5 & 8) with their mum, we couldn't have picked a better site! The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble, the whole site was kept very clean, and considering we went the last two weeks of August, it was still very peaceful, The pool was fantastic the kids loved it, and it was nice to see that the toddler pool wasn't tiny. We are looking forward to going back soon. Never tried the restaurant, but the take away was very popular!!!! Thanks for such a great time!!!

Great stay

Just returned from a week at Moulin du Roch. Lovely site , lots going on, children loved the pool and playground. Handy shop for basic supplies and excursions bookable at reception. Staff were helpful the only criticism is the emptying of waste which for some reason had to be done via the chemical toilet disposable which meant heavy lifting. Otherwise a great stay and we would return.
