Alan Rogers Review
Camping Wakan Tanka also known as Camping la Bucherie’s is in a quiet woodland setting in the Périgord Limousin Regional Natural Park. A natural swimming lake a short walk away, illuminated cave tours locally, a national park setting and crafty activities for the children, just a few of the many virtues of the site. The site lies close to the cities of Limoges, Périgueux and Angoulême, all about an hour’s drive away. Set among forest and farmland it is perfect for rural retreats, countryside ambles, nature spotting and birdwatching. Younger visitors are kept well occupied too in the summer months, when the site arranges craft workshops. Eats for all ages are sorted over at the bistro and bar, which serves up dishes, tipples and a kids’ menu. Visit the bar terrace in the evenings, to gather round the big communal firepit and have a natter with your fellow guests. The site has 38 grass touring pitches with electric hook-up point. There are also 10 Safari tents and a Gite available to hire.
The swimming lake a short walk away is lifeguarded during the summer months. If the sound of exploring the water in a canoe appeals instead, then head to the Dronne river nearby. For a challenge take yourself and the children to Espace Hermeline a short drive away, where brave types of all ages can test their steel among the high ropes’ courses. If heights are not your thing, take the opposite approach and head underground to the Villars cave, to tour grottoes hewn over centuries by an underground river and filled with stalactites and stalagmites. Limoges is a splendid spot to wander around for a city day trip. Must-sees include the Musée des Beaux Arts, the Jardin de l'Évêché botanical gardens and the historic pedestrianised Rue de la Boucherie. Périgueux has a fine mix of Renaissance and medieval architecture.
