Alan Rogers Review

In the heart of Limousin in the Haute-Vienne department, Camping de la Gartempe is situated in a protected area next to the River Gartempe and also is close to the small village of Châteauponsac. This wooded, terraced site has 36 grassy pitches with electricity (10/16A, Europlug) and water. Some pitches have shade and others a more open aspect. There are also 15 mobile homes, cottages and chalets to rent. The bar and terrace overlook the river and valley. The area is well known for rural and water activities as well as its culture and history.

Camping de la Gartempe is a member of the Aquadis Loisirs group who specialise in countryside holidays. It is only 13 km. from the Saint-Pardoux area, a major tourist attraction covering 330 hectares, with a lake in the heart of the forest. It is perfect for outdoor activities with three beaches with lifeguards (July and August) and three hiking circuits as well as walking, fishing, horse riding and mountain biking facilities and a tree climbing course. Also, visitors can explore the historic buildings in the area or visit the nearby towns, including the porcelain manufacturing city of Limoges.
