Why stay here ...

This charming site sits at the confluence of the Dordogne and Vézère rivers and is an excellent base for exploring this part of the Périgord. The site itself exudes the easy-going attitude of the region and feels relaxed and peaceful even when busy in high season.

There’s direct access to a pebbly beach and the River Dordogne for bathing, and there are pools and sports facilities for children. Pitches are open and unmarked along the river bank, while those set further back are shaded by mature trees.

Opposite the site is the pretty hillside village of Limeuil, and the towns of Sarlat-a-Canéda, Bergerac and Périgueux are little more than an hour’s drive. For the active, canoe and mountain bike hire is available, and fishing is permitted in the river.

A beautiful location.

Le Port de Limeuil
This site enjoys a beautiful setting beside the confluence of the Rivers Dordogne and Vezerre. We received a very warm welcome from the lady on reception and found all staff friendly and helpful throughout our stay in early May. There is a mixture of grass and had standing pitches with full services available to all. Well established hedges and trees provide a good degree of privacy. The unseasonably wet spring across much of France had left some pitches very wet and so we chose a hard standing with views of the river. Unfortunately during our first 2 days continued showers resulted in the view of the river increasing as the lower part of the site became flooded. The owner was most helpful assuring us that it wouldn’t rise to our pitch but we felt the best option was to decamp, wet awning and all, to a pitch on slightly higher ground which we did in with his complete agreement. The campsite was obviously in no way responsible for the rising river level and as the owner said the water would not rise up to the original pitch, but it is worth bearing in mind in such extreme weather. That said, from that point on we enjoyed beautiful sunny weather during the majority of our 8 night stay. The site facilities are first class with bar, restaurant and takeaway providing good reasonably priced food. The pool complex was both open and heated despite this being fairly early in the season. We prefer to use our own facilities so don’t have experience of the toilet/shower facilities but they were both modern and clean. This is a beautiful area of France full of interesting and spectacular places to visit. The small village of Limeuil on the opposite river bank is charming and the walk up to the gardens atop the cliff are well worth the effort. I have no hesitation in recommending this excellent site which in dryer times enjoys the benefit of a riverside beach with river swimming and canoe hire. We would love to return to enjoy them.

Such a pretty, well run campsite in a beautiful setting

Le Port de Limeuil
We have just had 2 weeks in this pretty campsite, lovely setting, great pitches with freedom to pitch as you wish, lovely pool, shop and cafe. The owners were helpful and the site so well maintained I almost don’t want to tell anyone else about it in case it gets too busy! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Excellent site

Le Port de Limeuil
We stayed here in September 2021 This is a first class location for visiting the many towns and villages along the Dordogne and its surrounds This is our fifth stay in this area - all at different sites - and we know there is something for all the family on offer We were warmly greeted at reception and all staff were cheerful and helpful throughout our stay The facilities were all maintained to a very high standard Good swimming pool - heated when necessary We chose a pitch overlooking the river (our guess is that in high season tents would have been allowed between our pitch and the river) We would highly recommend this site

Great site and well worth a visit

Le Port de Limeuil
We stayed at this lovely family run site for 19 nights in August and were delighted with every aspect The owners are extremely helpful and friendly ,no wonder they get so many repeat visits from campers There were many Brits along with several Dutch French and Germans which gave the site a friendly buzz In fact the friendliness of everyone was one of the stand out features of Port Limeuil The owner told us very few Caravan Club members actually came this year which is a shame as it’s one of the best sites we have visited and they were doing there best to manage the Covid situation but keep facilities open We used our own van for showers etc but the site facilities were very clean and regularly maintained The pitches are large with sharing taps and by adding a y piece we had permanent water The site was busy with a mix of caravans Motorhome tents and lodges for hire Although we were there as a couple it’s ideal for families and although lively during the day it never felt noisy and all went quiet at 10:30 pm We thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the river which was 50 m away from the caravan and is warm to swim in as well as enjoying the nearby kayaking The Dordogne is a lovely area to explore and this site is well placed to allow this The historic villages and Chateaux that are abundant in the area are fantastic to visit We will most certainly come back again

A fabulous Site

Le Port de Limeuil
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.
