Surroundings

Visit Les Eyzies

The nearest village of Les Eyzies is 2 km from the campground and is famous for its many caves with prehistoric wall paintings. In the center of the village is an old fortress built against the rock face. Inside you will find the museum of prehistory. Besides history, Les Eyzies has many nice restaurants and stores. In high season there are village festivals with music, good food and, of course, wine.

Go into nature

The campground is located in a hilly area with forests, farmlands and flowing rivers. You can go for beautiful walks, mountain biking or horseback riding. Are you looking for adventure? Then rent a canoe and sail up the Vézère or the Dordogne. Or join the quad bike ride organized once a week at the campground. In short, there is plenty to do.


Discover the prehistoric caves

Les Eyzies-de-Tayac is also considered the capital of prehistory. The caves with murals tell you stories about the way of life at that time. Nearby you will find several caves with murals such as the Font de Gaume (3 km), Cap Blanc (5 km) and cave du Sorcier (8 km). There are also caves with beautiful drop formations such as the Grand Roc (3 km), Gouffre de Proumeyssac (13 km) and Grotte de Maxange (22 km). In high season, guided tours are also regularly organized to Grotte de Bernifal, 5 km from the campsite. This beautiful private cave is still in its original state, with stalactite formations and prehistoric paintings dating back 15,000 to 20,000 years.

Visit one of the medieval villages

Because the Dordogne escaped the industrial revolution, numerous medieval villages can still be found. The village of Sarlat is the undisputed pearl of Périgord. With its beautiful historic town center, the St. Sacerdos Cathedral and the Présidenal Palace, the village is definitely worth a visit and only 23 km from the campsite. A little further, 25 km from the campsite, is La Roque-Gageac. This is one of the most beautiful villages in France built on a cliff. The village is known for medieval and renaissance architecture. Be sure to visit the gardens of Marqueyssac with its cliffs and panoramic view of the river.

    De tent en inventaris is super in vergelijking met de diverse lodge-tenten : ruim met veel opbergruimte en van alle gemakken voorzien. De bedden zijn goed. Onze plek (TC85) was prima, vooral omdat we geen overburen (en dus veel privacy) hadden. De gasten die op plek TC85 staan, lopen namelijk deels over plek TC84 en hebben vol zicht op elkaars terras.
