Alan Rogers Review

On the shore of an extensive lake in the heart of the Corrèze countryside, this could be an ideal holiday base for walkers, cyclists, anglers and lovers of watersports. The site offers 137 pitches of which 100 are for touring units, the remainder being occupied by mobile homes and chalets to rent. Trees provide shade in places, and 6A electricity connections are available (some pitches may require longer cables). Water points are rather sparse. Nearby Marcillac-la-Croisille has a weekly market (Tues) and a few shops, including a baker’s and a grocery. The nearest sizeable town with a choice of shops, bars and restaurants is Tulle, attractively located on the Corrèze river.

There are numerous marked footpaths and cycle tracks easily accessible and for those who enjoy treasure hunts, there is a well organised Geocaching scheme. The Lac de La Valette provides a variety of watersports; alternatively you can just relax with a fishing rod (permit required) or take out a boat. To the south are the gorges of the upper reaches of the Dordogne, whilst the more frequented sites downstream such as Le Gouffres de Padirac and even Rocamadour are within reach. To the north are the pleasant little hilltop town of Egletons and the nearby Château de Ventadour dominating the Gorges de la Soudeillette.


Three rather dated sanitary buildings provide basic facilities and include those for disabled visitors. Laundry area. No shop but essentials from reception. Tourist information. TV room with library and free WiFi. Playground. Children’s club twice a week (07/08). Table tennis, basketball and pétanque. Tennis (charged). Goat farm visits with cheese making and free tastings (July/Aug). Fishing. Direct access to lake and beach.
