Although Camping Caravaning Saint-Avit Loisirs is set amidst rolling countryside, far from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas of the Dordogne, the facilities are first class, providing virtually everything you could possibly want without the need to leave the site. This makes it ideal for families with children of all ages. The site is in two sections. One part is dedicated to chalets and mobile homes which are available to rent, whilst the main section of the site contains 199 flat and mainly grassy, good sized pitches, 99 for touring, with electricity (6/10A). With a choice of sun or shade, they are arranged in cul-de-sacs off a main access road and are easily accessible.
Environmental friendliness is high on the agenda for this site and each visitor is provided with a bag with instructions as to what should be placed in it before disposal. Two tour operators are in evidence but their tents and mobile homes are so positioned not to detract in any way from the attractiveness of the surroundings. The café, shop and bar open onto a large terrace with a pergola and hanging baskets, which overlooks the excellent pool complex. In high season a variety of activities and entertainment are organised – tournaments, aqua gym, bingo and even weekly films in English. An impressive new activities area has been created away from the pitches and includes a golf driving range and putting green. Although the site is lit, a torch may be useful in some areas.
