Travelled at the end of June/start of July with 2 kids ages 8 and 4. Stayed in a Eurocamp caravan, they have the most caravans on the site apart from the sites' own. Our plot was only big enough for the deck, we were fortunate enough to be able to play on the road right outside but a lot of the site is on a gentle slope so this wouldn't always be possible. A lot of the caravans are quite dated now, and the Canvas ones looked even older. All pitches are shaded, you cannot sunbathe at your own caravan (or at least, not for anything more than hour or so when the sun moves on). Great free wifi all over though!
Pool was great, although only a very few loungers down at the slide pool where we spent all our time. Both kids loved slides, you can go down them on an inflatable to make it even faster! Was unsupervised, however, so it's up to you to make sure your kids don't get caught under the inflatables of older teenagers who don't think to look first.
Table tennis and trampolines good, but wee play park was too little even for our 4 year old and the older 'play park' was only a climbing thing plus some spinny things, all set on top of stones! Also a boules pitch, and a good flat football area.
Shop not brilliant, but our 8 year old went on his own every morning to buy lovely croissants and baguette. Bar was nice enough, we had pizza one night and took the leftovers back for the next night, there was simply far too much! Happy hour between 6 and 7 but they didn't do food until 6.30.
Nothing in local town apart from one hotel, although their wee market on a Wednesday morning is nice for a walk down to. Sarlat is lovely, market there is great plus is nice for a wander on a quieter day. Our favourite days were gardens at Messeygnac and Castle at Castelnaud, but I have to say we were glad to move on after a week as our weather was a mixed bag and we'd run out of things to do on dull days!
I'd go back but wait until mid-July when there would be more kids about, there weren't really many to play with.
