Selected because of its unique position right on the Dordogne river and the fantastic view it enjoys of Beynac with its château perched on the rocks above the town.
The site is well maintained and the French/Dutch owners create a wonderful welcoming atmosphere. For those who enjoy a quiet ambiance you have the best of everything, access to all the facilities in the town, direct access to the river with a small,stony beach near the bridge upstream and very pleasant, attractive surroundings. Good mixture of nationalities.
Some occasional and slight road and train noise.
Flat, grassy pitches, divided by hedges and shrubs and not heavily shaded with wide alleys between the rows. They vary in size, average 100m², but some even more generous. The pitches overlooking the river are the best
6 or 10 amps - all pitches. Water & drainage - 50 pitches.

The site is situated by the river Dordogne to the east of Beynac.
From Bergerac take the D660 and then the D29 to Le Buisson. From here take the D703 towards Sarlat and you arrive in Beynac after 25km.
From Sarlat take the D57 to Vézac then turn right onto the D703 to Beynac.
Friendly welcome at reception. Well situated site with river to one side, road (no great noise problem) to other. Spectacular views of castle from some pitches, which are a reasonable size. Good facilities. Good mini-market and bakery immediately across the road, an easy walk into village - well worth a visit - in one direction or along the river in the other. Would definitely visit again.
Excellent campsite, very friendly and relaxed. Ambience and atmosphere created by Beynac Castle unbeatable.
We really enjoyed having a view from our ptich of Beynac perched on the sheer rock face. It is quite a unique setting right on the river, walking distance of the town, good facilities and friendly welcome.
