Alan Rogers Review
Attractive and well maintained, this six and a half-hectare site is hilly and terraced with good views from the top of the site. The new French owners, Gaelle and Christian, are warm and welcoming. Although the terrain is hilly, most of the 80 medium sized touring pitches are fairly level and moderately shaded (all with 6A electricity). Tight turns with narrow gravel paths and overhanging trees may cause some difficulties for larger units. A range of different types of accommodation, including Mongolian tents, are available to rent. Reception keeps information on a variety of local walking and cycling routes.
Alongside the improvement work that is being undertaken lots of flowers and shrubs are being planted by Gaelle’s mother. Adjacent to the site, bees are kept and the honey produced is sold in the farm shop. Christian has also established his own bakery and sells freshly baked bread. Wild animals including deer and red squirrels can regularly be spotted here. The site is situated between the wine growing regions of Cahors and Bergerac, close to many famous châteaux, particularly the famous Château Monbazillac. Various bastides (small fortified towns) including Monflanquin, Monpazier and Tournon, all worth a visit, are fairly close to the site. Fumel, only 8 km. away, has regular markets offering fresh local produce and several large supermarkets.
Two modern, clean and well maintained sanitary blocks can be heated. Facilities for disabled visitors. Excellent children’s facilities with baby bath and child size facilities. Private en-suite facilities for hire. Shop for essentials (with gas). Bar/reception and snack restaurant (including takeaway). Swimming pool complex with swimming pool, pool with slides, two paddling pools and a spa. Boules. Play area with bouncy castle. Small indoor play area with TV and small library. Free WiFi on part of site. Entertainment (high season) and organised activities.
