In the heart of an extensive wooded park on the bank of one of the largest lakes in Périgord, the Rouffiac leisure resort offers a wide range of activities. The campsite has 76 pitches in the shade of mature oak trees and separated by hedges. Fifty-one are for touring units, most with electrical connections, the remainder being occupied by chalets and mobile homes for rent. This corner of Périgord Vert in northeast Dordogne has a number of attractive villages, the nearest being Lanouaille where there are a few shops, bars and restaurants. Périgueux and Limoges are both well worth a visit.
Places of interest nearby include a forge at Savignac-Ledrier and a paper mill at Vaux. Further afield, historic Périgueux has a number of Roman remains, including an amphitheatre and the remains of a luxurious villa called the ‘Domus de Vesunna’, built around a garden courtyard surrounded by a colonnaded peristyle. The cathedral of Saint-Front is part of the World Heritage Sites of the Routes of Santiago de Compostela in France. Limoges is known for its medieval enamels on copper, for its 19th-century porcelain and for its oak barrels, which are used for Cognac production.
