Alan Rogers Review

Visitors to the Camping du Coucou in the wooded area of the Perigord Noir, famous for its walnut trees, will appreciate the natural tranquillity of this family run site - you may even hear a cuckoo! The welcome here is warm and friendly. Its 49 pitches, 23 for tourers, are part shaded and part sunny, and all have 10A electricity. Visitors can enjoy the restaurant and snack bar or soak up the sun on the terrace, where a television is provided. Children are well catered for with organised clubs in the morning, and for adults an outdoor cinema and quizzes are organised.

As well as touring pitches, there are several mobile homes to rent; the site also has two large (30 sq.m) tents for hire. The campsite is close to L’étang du Coucou where you can enjoy pony rides, fishing and picnicking. Just 2 km. away is the imposing Château de Hautefort, which dominates the surrounding landscape. Further afield you will find the Tourtoirac caves and the world famous Lascaux caves and their visitor centre. For more energetic visitors, canoeing, hot-air ballooning and potholing are available.
