General

  • Peaceful, family-run Dordogne campsite
  • Set in 26 acres of the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord Limousin
  • Onsite bar and restaurant, outdoor pool and fishing lake

You'll feel right at home at Camping Maisonneuve, a peaceful, friendly and family-run Dordogne campsite in the Périgord Vert within the Périgord-Limousin Regional Nature Park.

The site spreads over 26 acres of green scenery, with plenty of space for all, a private fishing lake, and woodland and riverside walks. A village shop, bar, bakery and restaurant are all in the small village of St Jory de Chalais five minutes' walk away. A swimming lake with beach is within 15 kilometres' drive.

Amicable and helpful owners Lorna and Russ haven't stopped there with their tiptop facilities and amenities: Maisonneuve also has an outdoor pool, a play area, free wifi, and a fully licensed bar and restaurant. Barbecues and campfires are both allowed on site.

This pretty place is just the ticket for a roomy and peaceful getaway, or to use as a base for getting out into all on offer around the Dordogne. At just four kilometres from the N21, it's also a most handy stopover for travellers on their way to southern France, Spain and Portugal – but when you see what's on offer here, you'll likely want to stay at least another few days…

    This is our 3rd visit to this lovely, quiet,and well cared for campsite.Each time we arrive we are given a great welcome and always stay longer than we intended.

    The pitches are very well maintained and give good shade if required.There is plenty of walking to be done both on the site and in the surrounding area (which is beautiful ).
    The Bar and Restaurant has a really friendly air about it and the staff are superb.

    The food is not only of the best quality ,but very well priced.

    Even better than last year. This is a rare site where the owners are not greedy. The camping area takes up a small amount of space in the large estate. You have so much peaceful and beautiful land to wander in. Woods, pasture and mowed grass. Great dog walks off the lead safe within the grounds. Carp fishing, lovely swimming pool away from the pitches. Shade everywhere that it is needed and beautiful countryside and views. Great restaurant and wonderful friendly staff . Thank you once again Russ and Lorna - see you again.

    Thanks to Russ and Lorna and their team. Great friendly site. Nice community feel, low key, relaxing and simple with good facilities. Enjoy an evening drink whilst kids (all the kids!) are playing nearby. Really enjoyed our 5 nights. Hope we’ll be back.

    What a wonderful site and what wonderful owners, Russ and Lorna. Nothing was too much trouble and Lorna's Beef Bourguignon was to die for. Site and facilities were kept immaculate. We will definitely be returning next year. Thank you Russ and Lorna for a really enjoyable stay at your site.

Directions


Camping Maisonneuve, St Jory de Chalais is very straight-forward to get to, and is an easy drive, even with the largest of caravans.

• From Paris, get on the A10 heading for Orléans
• Take the A71 to Vierzon
• At Vierzon get on the A20 towards Limoges
• Come off the A20 at Junction 28, heading for Périgueux on the N21
• Pass through Châlus and La Coquille
• 4km after La Coquille, you will reach a crossroads at Mavaleix
• Turn right onto the D98 for St Jory de Chalais, following the Camping Maisonneuve signs
• Go through Chalais, keep on D98
• Camping Maisonneuve is just on the left as you enter the village of St Jory de Chalais
(please note: do not turn off the D98 before you reach St Jory de Chalais).

The nearest airport is Limoges, 45km away. There are regular flights from most UK airports.

Local attractions

The spectacular Dordogne, with its splendid landscapes and scenery, prehistoric and ancient sites, jaw-dropping châteaux and deep dark caves, is a rightly popular place in France for visitors from within the country and all over the world. And then – mais oui – there's the cuisine: make sure to make room for Dordogne duck and goose, truffles, cheese, Bergerac and Monbazillac wines…

For outdoorsy days/attempts to burn off laden heaps of Dordogne eats, a swimming lake (and beach) are eight kilometres away at Grand Étang de Saint Saud; many kilometres of cycle trails are nearby, and canoes can be hired to explore the Dronne, Vézère and Dordogne rivers.

The Camping Maisonneuve owners also particularly recommend the splendid subterranean experience of Villars Cave, 14 kilometres from base, as well as the spectacular châteaux at Puyguilhem (15 kilometres) and Hautefort (30 kilometres).

Within day trip distance are the World War II memorial and museum at Oradour-sur-Glane; the cathedral and Roman remains of Périgueux, and the fab medieval centre of Limoges, all within 45 kilometres. Bergerac and Sarlat are both 75 kilometres away.
