Not so long ago the most important thing not to forget before coming to the campsite was the toilet paper roll.Today, we sort this out for you. Our sanitary buildings are perfectly arranged and equipped ... see by yourself:
There are 2 sanitary buildings with toilets, showers and sinks in cabins for everyone: men, women, children, whether valid or disabled.
Showers are driven by a revolutionary and ecological system, especially for preventing too long showers or leaks. A timer programmed by computer saves hundreds of liters of water every day!

Located a few kilometres from the Chateau le Verdoyer away, the village
Jumilhac-le-Grand offers you an impressive medieval castle. Who, in his time, served as a defence location to defend the borders of the Perigord and the Limousin.
We recommend you to go and visit this castle, at least once during your stay on the campsite.
The château de Jumilhac was built in between the 12th and 15th century, with as aim to give a ‘safe’ place to the people of the village during the wars.

In 1940, 4 teenagers discovered a cave in the aera of Montignac. It quickly appears that this cave has unbelievably rich wall paintings that make it one of the high places of parietal art.
However, to preserve these very fragile paintings, the cave had to close to the public and a copy of part of the cave was created in 1983.
Since December, a new site reproducing the entire cave has opened : Lascaux IV. An unforgettable journey for your next holiday in the Périgord.

The Périgord Blanc takes its name from the whiteness of its rocks appreciated to the work of sculptors.In the heart of it, you can find Périgueux, capital of the department Dordogne. City of art and history, dating back to the Gallo-Roman period, the city reflects its rich past in the narrow streets of the old town or the Roman ruins highlighted in the Vesunna museum.

As I hear the train whistling ...
Like many French departments, in the early 1900, our region was part of the development of the railway, called by the ancients "Les Tacots du Perigord" ...
Very helpful to reach the market of Piégut (still the largest in the area, to be visited on Wednesday morning), the old train from Saint Mathieu to Saint Pardoux la Riviere was inaugurated in 1912.

The geological pearl of the Périgord
Even when you have travelled through the Perigord many times in the past, and you think you know all its secrets, sometimes a new treasure can be discovered.
This is the case in Tourtoirac, where a new “grotte” has been open to the public since 2010.
In 1995 the cave has been discovered by a neighbour, Jean Luc Siriex. Unfortunately, during the second dive in the cave, accompanied by a friend, he drowned.
