Alan Rogers Review

A friendly, family run campsite in attractive wooded countryside on the edge of Périgord Noir and the Vézère Valley, le Verdoyant is conveniently located for visiting the historic and tourist sites of the Dordogne. Its 68 good-sized pitches are on level ground with trees providing shade in places, a few are on the edge of a small fishing lake, with 10A electricity available. A variety of mobile homes, chalets and equipped tents are for hire. Small animals on site include goats and two friendly donkeys. Footpaths take you through the trees and past ponds to a ‘Borie’ (a mediaeval farm building) and the village of Bars.

Interesting villages and market towns nearby include Montignac, with the Lascaux caves and Rouffignac with its famous grottoes. Canoeing on the nearby Vézère and riding in the Forêt de Bars are among activities available in the surrounding countryside, whilst the historic town of Sarlat-la-Canéda and all the sights of the Dordogne Valley, including La Roque-Gageac, are an easy drive away. Other possible destinations for days out are the historic town of Périgueux and the city of Brive-la-Gaillarde. Regular organised walks start in the nearby village to explore the local countryside and identify foods that grow in the area.


Sanitary block includes facilities for babies and children and for disabled visitors. Laundry room with washing machine. Motorcaravan services. Restaurant and bar with pool and table football. Swimming pool with sun terrace. Volleyball, badminton, table tennis and pétanque. Two fishing ponds. Animals. Activities, entertainment and themed meals in high season. WiFi in bar (free).
