This is a typical traditional french campsite with everything for a relaxed holiday for couples, families and young adults. (Except no loud discos!). There were a few static homes for rent which looked very nice. For everyone, the location is very good being by the pretty River Dronne at a spot where it is shallow and safe for splashing about; where the ducks happily swim and where beautiful dragonflies and butterflies can live in harmony with the campers. It is a 10 minute walk into Brantome which means that it is near enough to stroll to and far enough away not to be a source of noise or congestion on site. There is a good size area on site for games and activities; outdoor table tennis, bouncy castle, badminton net, tennis courts and a small pool cleaned daily with separate baby section. It is not a massive site like the ones you see by the coast or in the tourist 'hot spots'. We had a fab place for our caravan right by the river bank with plenty of shade. If you like shade or sun it is a good idea to request your preferred plot in advance as we did when we booked the site and we got just what we wanted. The staff are friendly and efficient. There is a very small shop for a few items of food and essentials and bread can be ordered every day. Sanitary areas are good and cleaned regularly. On some evenings a french group played a great repertoire of french and international songs in the small bar area. There was wi fi (payable) and the more you buy the better value the rate is I paid 20 Euos for 20 hours but it's more expensive if you buy fewer hours. There is a communal barbecue area.
Brantome itself is a lovely place to explore its history, to enjoy the Venice of Perigord as it is called and also to enjoy the cafes and restaurants.If you like canoes and canooing in a leisurely way, this is the place for you. There are other places of interest within an easy drive so it is a good base for getting to know this part of Perigord. All in all a great place to stay for a short or longer holiday. Two supermarkets are in town for all your essential items. It was all quiet by 10pm ish and all campers/caravanners were respectful of each others privacy. So glad we went!
