The name of this site may be misleading – it is nowhere near Calais! Au Bois de Calais is located within the Parc Naturel Régional de Millevaches in the Limousin. This is a holiday centre comprising a campsite, chalets, gîtes and mobile homes. The 30 touring pitches are huge (minimum 100 sq.m), and all have water and electricity. On-site amenities include a bar and restaurant (with terrace), and a shop specialising in local produce. Sports amenities include a swimming pool and volleyball. There is also a small fishing pond, with the River Corrèze running along one side of the site.
The Plateau de Millevaches is a vast region of lakes and forests, extending towards the Auvergne, with miles of cycle trails and hiking tracks. This is an isolated and relatively uninhabited area but with a great deal to discover. The Mont Bessou, for example, is the highest point, at 1,001 m., with fine views to the Auvergne and Cantal. The Cascades de Gimel are spectacular waterfalls with an overall drop of 143 m.
