Don't think camping in the traditional sense, this place is a level up in comfort and how its all thought out but you still get a great camping experience, one even better than we had hoped.
We spent 3 wonderful nights at Le Camp and my wife and two young boys will be back for sure.
There are so many fantastic chateaux to visit on a drive through France that it's easy to omit an altogether different experience that Le Camp offers in spades. Within 30 mins of arriving after a long drive, our boys were catching tadpoles and swimming excitedly with the frogs in the glorious natural pond where time stands still and a small gathering of young families swim and discuss their plans for the day. There is so much to do within a 20 mins car ride. We went for a gentle yet fun morning kayak trip recommended by the lovely Sally and Stephen in stunning surroundings. Our boys spent endless hours trampolining, playing boules and grazing in the shallow water's edge, the highlight of our 2 week holiday through France. Ending the day with a barbie and toasting marshmallows in the eve was easy with the fab facilities on offer and great fun.
As others have said in reviews, St Antonin really is a glorious place to visit with a fantastic market, excellent outdoor dining and a wonderful French charm.
The massive effort Stephen puts into keeping Le Camp a real paradise yet rustic and natural along with Sally's passion and great personalised service is a testament to how much they love this place. We did too!
Simon, Nikki and 2 v happy boys.
