vriendelijke ontvangst door nederlandse eigenaren Arjan en Jolanda.Veel informatie te verkrijgen . Grote kampeerplaatsen 150m2. Zeer mooi en schoon sanitair. 2x per week table d hotes. De camping heeft weinig schaduw plaatsen.Het bestelde brood wordt s\'morgens op je campeerplaats bezorgt.

We stopped here for one night on our way to Royan. We received a very warm welcome from the owners who introduced themselves. We asked for a pitch which we could leave the car attached. We were taken to the pitch and were amazed at the size it must have been about 20m X 15m.
The swimming pool looked very inviting although a bit small. The toilet block was immaculate. As was the rest of the site.
It is about 11 miles from Oradour Sur Glane which has a very disturbing story to tell. St Junien is also well worth a visit.
We will definitely return but will stay for longer.

We stayed 38 nights May/June 2016. Absolutely excellent site - can\'t fault anything. The shower block is modern and kept very clean (remember to take your own loo roll and soap) and the owners can be found around the site all day every day taking care of the pitches. There is a heated pool which is cleaned every day. The site is on the edge of a forest (no BBQs permitted) with walks immediately from the site either into the village or into the forest. It\'s in an excellent location for sightseeing - St Junien, Rochechouart, Oradour Sur Glane etc. The owners show every new arrival around the site, there is bread available in the mornings and shared meals on certain days throughout the week. Would highly recommend.

Visited the site in September 2015 so many things were closed/not available as expected. The swimming pool was closed but looked attractive though may be a little small if site were full. Pitches are mostly larger than on many sites. Pitched a twin axle caravan without any problem. Pitches marked out with low hedges and fences. There are not many sites where your morning bread is delivered to the door or where the owner shows you around before you choose your pitch!
Really pleasant husband and wife team who are always available to help.
Toilet block is probably the cleanest we have ever seen. Although two years old the block looked as if it opened that week!!
Would certainly recommend it and will definitely return.

An excellent, well maintained and friendly site with large placements. Good surrounds, able to walk/cycle into local village with shops and cafés and very near Limoges and Oradour sur Glanne. Owners offer a communal meal twice a week which was lovely and morning bread orders are delivered to your door. Good sanitary block but lost one point as no toilet paper supplied. Would definitely recommend this site.

Wat een prachtige camping. Ruime plaatsen, super schoon sanitair (!), enthousiaste eigenaren (komt zelfs \'s morgens het bestelde brood aan de caravan/ tent brengen). De perfecte camping waar nauwelijks iets ontbreekt. Minpunten zijn er nauwelijks of het moet zijn dat er niet dagelijks (aantal keren per week een SRV wagen) een winkel op de camping is. Dichtbij is een dorp voor kleine benodigdheden en iets verder weg een supermarkt. Voor kinderen en prima en veilige camping met zwembad en speeltuin en speelveld. Op loopafstand een zwemplas. De omgeving biedt veel voor wandelaars en sportievelingen (fietsen, mountainbike, zwemmen. hardlopen), Oradour is indrukwekkend en er zijn op afstand kastelen en oude stadjes te zien. Of de omgeving boeiend genoeg is voor een langer verblijf weet ik niet.
Een aanrader... wij komen zeker terug.

Keurige camping met super netjes nieuw sanitair.
Bij aankomst rondleiding gekregen over de camping door de eigenaar, deze brengt s\'morgens ook het bestelde brood aan de caravan. Schone camping met hele grote plaatsen, alleen in het \"oude\" gedeelte schaduwrijke plaatsen. terras is klein en niet echt uitnodigend. Een leuke camping voor enkele dagen.
