Foodies, pack up your stretchiest pants, for the Périgord region overflows with fab food to feast upon. Repair to Camping Le Repaire for your hols and you’ll be just outside the village of Thiviers, which proudly itself to be the area’s capital of foie gras. You can drive down there in five minutes, but you’d be well advised to take the 25-minute walk instead, not only to see some of the gorgeous greenery that’s all around but also to acquire an appetite for all the top-notch titbits on local menus: truffles, confit duck, goat’s cheese, wild mushrooms, garlic soup…
In between all the eats, put the calories to good use by hiking through the local forests, striking out on two wheels on a long bike ride or taking a canoe trip from Corgnac sur l’Isle, perhaps. Or give in to the languid life and roll back up to the site to doze in a deckchair on the sun terrace, perhaps arising every so often for a dip in the pool (an indoor/outdoor number that pretty much ensures suitable swim temperatures whenever you require). Or settle by the fishing lake to see if you can snag any of the carp or roach, while perhaps entertaining the idea of another doze.
Maybe you’ll even consider a gentle game of pétanque or table tennis, wander in to the games room to play table football or pool, paddle across the lake on a pedalo or accompany ever-energetic nippers to the playground. Or, if that all sounds like too much effort, simply select a board game from the library to while away some gentle hours.
Interim hunger pangs can be dealt with at the snack bar, which is open for lunch and dinner, or with something picked up from the on-site grocery store. There’s also a bar that’s open all day for hot and cold drinks and ice creams; ask nicely and they’ll also order you in some fresh bread or croissants to kick the following day’s eats off in splendid style. Of an evening, the bar’s open terrace is the place to be, for cool drinks and fun ents: live music, kids’ shows and discos among them. The friendly owners turn up and organise barbecues at regular intervals in high season too (ooh, more food – you’ll truly be thankful for those stretchy pants).

On the N21 Limoges-Périgueux, when you reach the second traffic light turn left in direction of Thiviers. Continue on the D707 direction Lanouaille and follow the campsite's signposts.
If you’re interested in foie gras and its production, head into the Maison de Foie Gras in Thiviers; for other bits of local produce pop into the town’s shops or poke around the market on a Tuesday or Saturday morning. If you’re on a bike, pack up a picnic and take the trail out of town to Saint-Pardoux-la-Rivière, a small town in the Périgord-Limousin Regional Natural Park. Those who prefer to explore on horseback can take trips from a riding centre in Lempzours, 20 minutes’ drive from the site.
Take the 10-minute drive (or half-hour cycle) to Corgnac-sur-l’Isle for canoe trips on the Isle river or to ride on the vélorail along the old railway through the woods. On warm days you can also cycle for 10 minutes or so to reach Nantheuil’s lake for some au-naturel swimming.
A cool place to be on a hot day is Villars Cave, where you can see splendid stalactites and stalagmites as well as 17,000-year-old prehistoric paintings, including the little blue horse and sorcerer and bison. Other good days out nearby include the UNESCO-listed 16th-century Château de Puyguilhem and the fairytale-esque Château de Jumilhac. If you're around in summer, have a look out for concerts being held in the ruins of Abbaye de Boschaud, a 12th-century Cistercian monastery. All of these can be reached by car in around half an hour.
