Theme parks of all flavours, rides and amusements and – how the kids will love this – history of all ages is within your adventurous and sightseeing reach at this family site in the Dordogne: Camping au Fil de l'Eau is a paltry 15 minutes' by car from the excellent old sights of Périgueux, and within driving distance of most amusing says out at regional family and amusement parks. And to combine old old things with a theme park vibe? The simply splendid living museum of Le Bournat is within a 40-minute drive.
Fil de l'Eau is a nifty base for getting out and about in the Périgord Blanc, Dordogne and the Aquitaine region, whether your tastes are for ambling around medieval villages and pretending to be a knight at one of the area's castles, or stretching your active and outdoorsy muscles hiking, cycling or horse riding. You can take to the Dordogne river via canoe or kayak too (kayaks can be hired on site), or access the Isle river and national forest of Lanmary from local town Antonne-et-Trigonant. Both the GR 36 and GR 646 trails pass through the town.
Leisurely options on site include an outdoor pool for grownups and a paddling pool for tiddlers, in a scenic aquatic area surrounded by deckchairs for soaking up the sun or indulging in a siesta. Kids can keep their excitable holiday selves occupied at the playground, in the games room or by borrowing board games and books from reception, before honing their pétanque or table tennis skills to properly challenge the grownups.
Regular traditional music evenings with mussels and chips are held in high season. A local farmers' market also sets up on site in the summer months, and a snack bar is ready to dish out ice cream, cold drinks and light bites. Bread and pastries can be ordered from here and are delivered freshly baked each morning.
Et finally, if you're not a French native, this is the place to practise and parlez your français, as not much English is spoken at the site: depending on your language level, this could be a source of great amusement for the kids too.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
Overall a great stay and definitely recommended.

Medium (26-50 pitches)
Local town Antonne-et-Trigonant within easy walking distance has access to the Isle river on one side and the Lanmary forest on another, for days of riverside and woodland walks, boat trips and cycling.
Hikers have two paths to pick from in town: the GR 36, linking Ouistreham on the Normandy coast to all the way down to Bourg-Madame on the Spanish border, and the GR 646, a rather more restful path running from St-Mesmin to Rougerie St Astier. The latter is only 117 kilometres if you don't fancy hiking all the way to Spain...
As the kids might say pah to all that, take them out on a Dordogne amusement park day, like to the living village of Le Bournat, within 40 minutes' drive; Jacquou Parc, half an hour away at Le Bugue, or La Foret des Ecureuils Adventure Park for tree climbing, ziplining and paintballing, an hour and 10 minutes away. They should also like the falconry displays at Château des Milander, or going underground at the spectacular and world-famed caves of Lascaux and Villars, all within easy day trip distance.
The pretty town of Brantome, scenically set on the Dronne river, is within half an hour's drive.
