Why stay here ...
This site grew from an abandoned medieval hamlet and was restored in the ‘70s by the family who continue to run it. Emphasis is on an authentic French feel and the owners work hard to preserve the unspoilt natural, traditional ambiance while also catering well to families.
Set on a hillside, the site has beautiful views of the surrounding landscape and the pitches, which vary in size, benefit from shade. Organised entertainment takes place in high season, and there’s a market each Wednesday in July and August. A meal in the Chestnut Tree restaurant onsite is recommended.
There's plenty to do in the area, with many nearby villages and towns to visit. Sarlat-la-Canéda is a popular attraction and has much to explore, while the impressive Abbey Sainte-Marie at Souillac is worth a visit. Other attractions include the Padirac Chasm, where visitors can take a boat trip on the underground lake, and Lascaux with its famous cave paintings.
