General

  • Quiet woodland setting in the Périgord Limousin Regional Natural Park
  • A short walk from a natural swimming lake
  • Guided tours and seasonal kids' club with craft and nature activities

A natural swimming lake a short walk away, illuminated cave tours locally, a national park setting and crafty activities for the kids… just a few of the many virtues of serene and scenic Camping La Bucherie. The site lies close to three sizeable cities too (Limoges, Périgueux and Angoulême), all about an hour’s drive away.

Set among forest and farmland, Camping La Bucherie’s green environs are spot on for rural retreats, countryside ambles, nature spotting and birdwatching; these lands are home to 25 varieties of rare orchid, more than 40 different animal species including European pine martens, otters, dormice and fire salamanders, and 110 different types of feathered critter.

This small family site in the Dordogne department and in the Périgord Limousin Regional Natural Park is a highly restful place, where options include peaceful rambles in the forest to forage for mushrooms, truffles and chestnuts; swims in the smart new pool or wandering to the nearby swimming lake for fresh dips on hot days.

Kids are kept well occupied too in the summer months, when a club runs activities like craft workshops – where they’ll learn to craft bows and arrows, dreamcatchers and other homemade holiday souvenirs – and organised outdoor games, drama workshops and nature walks through the surrounding woodland.

Eats for all ages are sorted over at the bistro and bar, which serves up dishes, tipples and a kids’ menu. Take to the bar terrace in the evenings, to gather round the big communal firepit and have a natter with your fellow guests.

Great location for families and couples to enjoy the area.31/07/2020

  • Liked: 

    Popular with families, especially the pool and nearby lake, but the site was very quiet after 10:30pm each night.
    Peaceful setting surrounded by the forest park. Lots of walking trails.
    Good sized, well spaced pitches.
    Toilet and shower facilities were clean enough and there were plenty for everyone.
    Great swimming lake with sandy beach and warm water 1km away with toilets, showers, cafe.
    Evening meals available on site or a large pizzeria nearby. Bread available to order.

    Disliked: 

    We found the site hard to locate at first, as the site seems to be named both Camping Wakan Tanka and Camping La Bucherie. This could be clearer online and on the ground.

    It is a really lovely campsite with a lovely feel. It has a really nice sports field and the kids activities were really fun. We had a large pitch and the swimming pool was small but clean. The owners did marshmallows for the kids in a large fire pit which was really nice.

    Disliked: 

    The whole place is completely catering for Dutch holiday makers. The menu was in Dutch and the owners made little effort to explain it to us in French or English. There was no hot water for the whole week we were there and all updates were in Dutch only, along with instructions for the washing machine in Dutch only.

    On BBQ night the musician (he was good) but went on until nearly midnight, which disturbed the children's sleep.

A fantastic site and area to get away from it all at a bargain price!15/07/2019

john_a326320Confirmed

    This is a wonderful site for getting away from it all. The pitches are HUGE and hidden amongst the trees, giving plenty of shade. This was important as it was 38-42 degrees C when we were in the region! The pool therefore was an added bonus. The area is absolutely stunning, with plenty of places to walk and historic towns to visit. The Dutch owners, Ans and Rees are great hosts and made us very welcome; nothing was too much trouble and as they've been running the site for 21 years, they know the area pretty well. They organised a days kayaking for us at a lovely old town called Brantome and we benefited from a discount as we booked the trip through them.

    Disliked: 

    The only issue that we had during our stay was the inconsistent temperature of the water in the shower block. From talking to regular visitors, this is a persistent problem, however the owners responded immediately when we reported that the showers were blisteringly hot and fixed the problem.

Directions


Local attractions

The swimming lake a short walk away is lifeguarded during the summer months and has shower and toilet facilities. If the sound of exploring the water in a canoe appeals instead, then head to the Dronne river nearby: for those who rather like the idea of being guided by knowledgeable locals, the site runs regular outings there during the summer.

For adrenalised adventure, take yourself and the kids to Espace Hermeline a short drive away, where brave types of all ages can test their steel among the high ropes courses. If heights aren't your thing, take the opposite approach and head underground to the Villars cave, to tour fab grottoes hewn over centuries by an underground river and filled with stalactites and stalagmites.

Limoges is a splendid spot to wander around for a city day trip: must-sees include the Musée des Beaux Arts, the Jardin de l'Évêché botanical gardens and the historic pedestrianised Rue de la Boucherie. Périgueux has a fine mix of Renaissance and medieval architecture, a Roman site and a UNESCO-listed Byzantine cathedral.
