Alan Rogers Review

Castel Domaine de la Paille Basse was originally a medieval hamlet made up of three abandoned farmsteads which a British lady lovingly restored at the end of the 70's. Emphasis was laid on keeping the former aspects of the buidings, along with treasuring the unspoilt nature around. Today, the 3rd generation looks after this jewel, making sure the guests have the most enjoyable stay. Domaine de la Paille Basse is set in a rural location some 9 km from Souillac and stretches over a crest, 250m above sea level, offering wonderful views over the surrounding landscape. It is easily accessible from the A20 and well placed to take advantage of excursions into the Dordogne and it is part of a large domaine of 80 hectares, all available to campers for walks and recreation.

The site has much to offer visitors throughout the main season with a reduced programme at other times. Activities include a miniclub, karaoke, concerts or quiz nights each evening, aquagym, sports competitions and a children’s farm. Every Wednesday in July and August there is an evening market in the centre of the site. It can get very busy here in high season and is popular with three tour operators. If you like a livelier type of site, you will enjoy La Paille Basse.
