Camping Le Gibanel: Gibanel castle on the water

General

  • In the grounds of a 13th-century château on the banks of the Dordogne
  • Shop, bar, heated pool and boat hire
  • 10 minutes' drive from the medieval town of Argentat

You could imagine you'd slipped back in time at Camping Le Gibanel. Stroll past the golden stones of the château to your boat and spend a day fishing, deep in the wooded seclusion of the Dordogne.

For all its ancient qualities the facilities here are tiptop: you can dine at the château looking your best, as the 24-hour laundry has irons alongside washers and dryers. (No more tent-head either: hairdryers are in the washrooms.)

The heated pool provides an alternative to a dip in the river. If you do suffer from watery wanderlust though, you can hire boats and buy fishing permits right on site. If you don't catch anything, fill up instead on groceries and bread from the shop, as well as on snacks at the bar.

A playground will keep the littlest ones amused, while older ones might be drawn to the wifi. Families can get together for sporting antics on the boules court or at the ping pong table and there's a gym for more serious keep-fit.

Argentat (10 minutes away by car) has supermarkets, shops and riverside restaurants.

    Amazing location on the edge of a lake - a bit like staying on an island as there is water surrounding two sides of the campsite.

    A good welcome but some of the staff were not that friendly. We were given an amazing pitch next to the lake where we could watch the ducks and the children messing around on boats. It was quiet when we were there, shortly after they reopened on 1 July 2020 and its difficult to assess just how busy it could potentially be in the height of summer. The pitches close to the water are a bit on the snug side, but further back means more space and lots of shade. The shop was very well stocked and the bar and restaurant were open but we did not use them during this trip.

    If you want a really quiet time - then I would also recommend a pitch away from the bar as the disco music could be heard albeit only faintly. However nothing can detract from the waterside pitches and their ambience.

    Disliked: 

    Rather disappointed with the standard of the toilets and showers where we were - toilet paper was never restocked in the two days we were there and the facilities are tired - it would not take much to improve - maybe just some new toilet seats and a good clean.

Directions


Local attractions

Medieval Argentat is home to the Splash Center Aquarecréatif, with flumes, chutes and slides around a lifeguarded pool and a paddling pool.

Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne (30 minutes) is a popular spot to hire mountain bikes and various river craft; you can tour the area with guides or on your own.

An hour away, Martel is the starting point for a heritage ride on a lovingly restored steam train, a popular way to take in the local countryside. It's also home to a reptile zoo, where you can meet alligators and mambas (if that's your poison…).

The world-famed clifftop village of Rocamadour is an hour and 20 minutes away. After visiting this ancient pilgrim site, wander through the Forêt des Singes, where over a hundred monkeys swing freely through the boughs. Around both, the Parc Régional des Causses de Quercy occupies much of the surrounding countryside: rich in wildlife, it's also home to ancient mines and painted caves.

For the ultimate Palaeolithic art experience, the caves of Lascaux are an hour and a half away. The exhibition there is a must-see, but other caves in the region (at Cougnac, an hour and 45 minutes away) let you get much closer to the paintings and our prehistoric past.
