Camping de la Gartempe: Pitches

General

  • In a peaceful green setting and next to the Gartempe river
  • A short drive to a lake for watersports and treetop adventuring
  • Miniature golf, heated pool, kids' games and river fishing

How do you like your setting when on your French hols? Peaceful? Green? Right next to a river? Have all three with a stay at Camping de la Gartempe.

You'll have direct access to the calm waters of the Gartempe river from here, for paddles, fishing and lazes alongside, as well as spectacular views of the water from the site and superly easy access to the beaut surrounds of the Gartempe and Semme valleys primed for exploring on foot, by bike or by mountain bike. Heading 15 minutes south, heaps of leisure options are at Saint-Pardoux’s lake, with an indoor pool, a treetop adventure park, a beach and water-based pursuits like paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking and sailing.

Châteauponsac, also known locally as Château Lorraine, is in the sparsely populated Limousin region, just over half an hour’s drive from Limoges. The village looks scenically over the valley, and in it is a Benedictine priory housing the René-Baubérot museum, which showcases everything from local arts and crafts to archaeological exhibits and reconstructions of traditional Limousin interiors.

The site’s accommodation areas are well laid out across terraces in a highly serene and green setting; plenty has been laid on for kids and spells of gentle activity, including a spacious playground, a games room with a ping pong table and a TV to lounge in front of, as well as a miniature golf course and a pétanque pitch.

To sort your eats there’s a snack bar, a small grocery store and a freshly baked bread service, supplies from which can be scoffed the pretty picnic area or back at your pitch. Otherwise, head to the supermarket at the top of the hill nearby or venture to sample the region’s gastronomy around the local village.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

From the manager...

Nous sommes vraiment désolés, mais toutes les tables étaient réservés et nous avons appelé pour vous les autres restaurants afin de vous trouver une place. Et vous avez pu manger à la brasserie. Toutes les personnes qui sont arrivées avaient réservées.Vous vouliez manger tout de suite et ce n'était pas possible. Nous n'ignorons aucun de nos clients.
We're sorry, but all tables were reserved and we called the other restaurants for you to find you a seat. And you were able to eat at the brewery. Everyone who arrived had reservations, you wanted to eat right away and it was not possible. We don't ignore any of our customers.

    As it's some way from town, it would have been good if either this site or its sister site over the road had some restaurant facilities on a Sunday evening.

From the manager...

Merci beaucoup pour votre commentaire. Le camping se trouve à 500 m du village où vous pouvez trouver une pizzeria et une petite brasserie et dans le camping il y a un bar-snack qui est ouvert toute l'année. Au plaisir de vous revoir. Laurence et Philippe.
Thank you very much for your comment. The campsite is 500 m from the village where you can find a pizzeria and a small restaurant. And in the campsite we have a snack bar which is open all year. It's a pleasure to see you again.

Local attractions

Châteauponsac’s René-Baubérot museum is a splendid spot to delve into the region’s history at: explore archaeological exhibits and reconstructions of traditional Limousin interiors, as well as local arts and crafts too.

Heading 15 minutes south by car, venture to get sporty on the water at Saint-Pardoux’s leisure base: paddleboarding, canoeing and kayaking and sailing are all available here, as well as swimming in the indoor pool or monkeying around in the treetop adventure park. If you’re of a rather more lazy persuasion, bring your beach towel and sunscreen and stretch out on the sands of the lovely lake beach.
