Alan Rogers Review
Camping La Brugère is a serene site in a quiet part of the Dordogne, in a rural setting with very little traffic noise, and on a working sheep and cattle farm. Set secluded less than 10 minutes’ drive from the village of Saint-Félix-de-Villadeix, the site is run by Lieke and René, who have set up a laidback place where guests can laze about in scenic surrounds. It’s in a handy location too, Bergerac airport (and car hire) is 25 minutes’ drive from here, Bergerac city is within half an hour, and stunning Perigueux is 40 minutes to the north. The UNESCO World Heritage Site and archaeological haven of Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil is 45 minutes away. As evening falls, mosey on over to the farm’s old cow shed, which has been converted into a communal space where the owners run a small bar selling snacks such as pizzas from the woodfired oven, fries and roasted free-range chickens, as well as drinks and ice cream. A fire is lit here too on less clement days, for guests to cosy around and chat, and a campfire often blazes outside on nights in peak season. The site has 25 grass touring pitches most with electric hook-up point. There is also a mobile home and cottage available to hire.
Placid pursuits are to hand if you want them, a little lake with freshwater creek is towards the lower part of the grounds for gentle walks, and there’s plenty of space around the site for strolls and games of lawn bowls or badminton. Small guests, meanwhile, should enjoy meeting and feeding the site ducks. A forest is within a kilometre’s walk for woodland strolls or availing of the sports kit if you’re feeling a tad more energetic. Also, in peak season (July and August), a weekly barbecue is held for guests. bring along your meat, fish and vegetables.
The toilet block has showers, washbasins and wc’s. Launderette. Facilities for guests who are disabled. Dishwashing area. Chemical toilet point. Freezer for ice packs. Charging facilities. Bar. Wi-Fi free. TV room. Restaurant. Takeaway. Volleyball net. Fishing on site. Dogs and BBQ’s allowed.
From the north on A20 at Limoges leave at exit 33 to join the N520 this eventually becomes the N21 which will take you via Chalus and Thiviers to Perigeux. At Perigeux follow centre (Centre Ville). From there take the direction Bergerac D6012. Go under A89 and 4km from Perigeux at a roundabout on the D21 take the exit to join D8 to Vergt. Follow the D8, through Vergt. At a roundabout, about 1km past Vergt, follow the D21 towards Bergerac. After about 7km, there is a petrol station on the right side of the road. Take the 2nd road left (opposite La Brande restaurant). There is a sign for the site; keep following the signs for about 6km's to the site.Link to campsite location map on google
