Sometimes we come across small but beautifully kept campsites which seem to have been a well kept secret, and les Valades certainly fits the bill. Set on a hillside overlooking lovely countryside between the Dordogne and Vézère rivers, each pitch is surrounded by a variety of shrubs and trees. The 60 pitches are flat and grassy, mostly on terraces, all with 10A electricity and most with individual water and drainage as well. Ten very large pitches (over 300 sq.m) are available for weekly hire, each having a private sanitary unit, dishwashing, fridge and barbecue. At the bottom of the hill, away from the main area, is a swimming pool and a good sized lake for carp fishing, swimming and canoeing (free canoes).
A large expanse of open field, neatly mowed, creates a feeling of space and visitors are welcome to fly kites, play games or just sit and soak up the atmosphere. From the moment you arrive you can see that the owners take enormous pride in the appearance of their campsite and there are well tended flowers and shrubs everywhere you look. A convivial and family atmosphere is very much in evidence and the site is ideal for couples of all ages and families with young children for whom a special play area has been set up in the restaurant.
