General

  • Family-friendly riverside site 10 minutes' walk from Corrèze
  • In the Millevache en Limousin Regional Natural Park
  • Restaurant with takeaway service and theme nights

Now, let’s get one thing sorted from the start here: this place is not in, or near, the port of Calais. Anyone rolling off the ferry in and hoping for a short hop to their sleeping spot is going to be sorely disappointed to hear they’re about eight hours away (and you don’t want to be THAT person).

In fact, Camping Au Bois de Calais is in a rather fine spot at the southern end of the Millevaches en Limousin Regional Natural Park, on the banks of the Corrèze river and a 15-minute walk from the village of the same name. It’s a gorgeously green site with plenty of trees for shade, and surrounded by woods for peaceful seclusion from the outside world. Get your hiking shoes to venture off site and you’ll find all sorts of lovely places to walk nearby – mountains, waterfalls and heather-covered moors among them.

Before you stride forth, however, you’ll be needing a decent breakfast, so pick up your pre-ordered bread and pastries ready for morning munching to set the day up properly. Later on, post-wandering refuelling is available in the form of all-day snacks as well as a seasonal menu of local dishes for lunch and dinner, with theme nights thrown into the mix for good measure in high season. If you’re not feeling suitable for public presentation, you can grab a takeaway and retreat to your own personal patch (if you’ve perked up later, you can always trot back for a drink at the bar).

Lest you feel you’ll have to spend the whole day eating, there are plenty of other things to get up to on site (although you’re most welcome to stuff yourself silly all day should that be your preferred holiday activity). There’s a big multisports pitch for games of basketball or football if you can gather the requisite number of chums, or you could slope off à deux to perfect your pétanque technique or aim for a hole in one at the miniature golf. The site also has a big outdoor pool for swimming and water games, with aqua gym classes in summer (a smart way to burn a few calories without getting overheated).

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Local attractions

As you may imagine from a site in a natural park, there are lots of lovely outdoorsy things to occupy your time with around here. It’s a varied terrain of moorlands, forests, meadows and woodlands, with lots of trails for hikers and cyclists, plus routes for visiting geocachers. Pick up leaflets at the local tourist office to find a route that tickles your fancy. A popular place to walk is at Gimel-les-Cascades, 15 minutes’ drive away, where you can visit the ruined Château de la Roche-Haute and walk to the series of waterfalls that give the village its name, including one that’s 60 metres high.

For watersports, it’s a half-hour drive to Marcillac-la-Croisille, where you can hire canoes, kayaks, sailing boats and pedaloes, or learn about the secrets of paddleboarding on the lake. Or you can continue down to the Dordogne river, 45 minutes away, for canoe trips past the river’s cliffs and castles.

20 minutes from the site is the President Jacques Chirac museum, which collects together all sorts of gifts the president was given during his tenure, along with other memorabilia. Looking somewhat further back in time, there’s a Middle Ages discovery centre in Égletons, 25 minutes away, and some lovely medieval towns and villages to poke about in, including Meyssac and Brive-la-Gaillarde, both of which are about a 45-minute drive away.
