Welcome to our campsite on the banks of the Dordogne
Our campsite started in the 1950's by our father who created the site on an old farm property. It is situated on the banks of the Dordogne river between the historic towns of Argentat and Beaulieu sur Dordogne. At that time, the pitches were not defined, the holiday makers came to enjoy their three weeks paid holiday with their families in the community. The campers bought their milk, eggs and local produce from the nearby farms. The profits made from the returning clients was and still is ploughed back into the campsite; trees and shrubs, a covered, heated pool, sports area, as well as a bar, restaurant and good facilities make for a quality stay. Today, we, the next generation continue to develop the campsite respecting the history of this place. Since 1960, our objective is always to make you want to come and share special moments with friends and family by the beautiful Dordogne.
