- 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 for splashing and a sauna for pampering, a play area to occupy the kids while you're doing either, 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…

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.

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.
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 (30km).
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.
