A Green Oasis

Have just come back after spending 17 nights on this site. Its the best site that we have ever stayed on in France and as far as we have discovered, the only one to actively push for greener camping. The site is planted with flowers and there is a small allotment/herb garden were you are invited to help yourself to small quantities. Indeed, its the only site we have ever stayed on which has a compost facility. Given the Covid situation, we were apprehensive about going, but we need not have worried as the site facilities were kept spotlessly clean and every time I visited them, the Cleaner was present undertaking yet more cleaning. There is a small bar and restaurant on site, and a programme of activities mainly aimed at children - staff are multi-lingual. Be aware, the site deals with its "Poo" by means of a reed bed sewage system, so there are signs in the chemical toilet disposal point asking campers not to use blue but instead use green "Eco" toilet chemicals. If you wish, there are bikes and canoes for hire, but I thought they were a little on the expensive side but I guess insurance comes into the equation. There is a fairly large Intermarche supermarket near Montignac which is adequate for most food and drink needs and it also has a 24 hour filling station. Other large outlets (E.Lerclerc and Carrefour) can be found at Sarlat. I can recommend the Water Gardens at Carsac which were in full bloom when we visited - August 2020 - but wear appropriate footwear as some of the water maze walkway was under water not that it bothered us as it was so hot. We will be back when we next visit the Dordogne.
