Out and about around your campsite

Around any campsite in the Dordogne, you’ll be spoilt for choice as to activities. It’s very feasible here to alternate some sports one day with a mellow city trip the next, or a visit to one of the many castles or caves (grottes).

  • Sports options
    If camping in the Dordogne, you really must spend some time on the river that has given its name to the region. All the water activities are possible here: canoeing, sailing, fishing or going for a nice swim at your own pace. There’s excellent opportunities for hiking and cycling in the Dordogne, too.
  • Cultural city trips
    The four major centres here are the small cities of Nontron, Perigueux, Bergerac and Sarlat. Each has its own character and none is hard to reach from any campsite in the Dordogne.
  • Castles and caves
    It’s no exaggeration to say that the Dordogne is a land of a thousand castles. Two of the most renowned are the medieval fortresses of Castelnaud (Château de Castelnaud-la-Chapelle) and Beynac. Another highlight of a Dordogne holiday is visiting one of the many caves where some of the world’s oldest Stone Age drawings are visible on the walls.
