General

  • Next to a 15-hectare fishing lake
  • Play area, TV room, shop and pool with slides
  • Evening activities including cinema nights, bingo and pool parties

If you find French fishing holidays a bit slippery to sort, packez le rod for a stay at Camping du Lac de Mondon in the green region of Limousin. For it's right next to a 15-hectare fishing lake, where enthusiastic anglers can land carp, pike and perch, and is in the Haute-Vienne department where more fishing opps along the Benaize river do flow.

Not a French fishing fan? Land yourself at the campsite facilities for days on end instead: you can take your pick from lounging/hurtling around the outdoor pool with slide while the kids get energetic at the big play area, or borrow a book or board game from reception to get stuck into on the grass, or avail of the free wifi throughout the park to see where in France you ought to go next…

If you'd prefer something a bit more organised, the site team organises evening activities like cinema nights, bingo and – oooh – pool parties.

The campsite also has a TV room, a grocery shop selling essentials and fresh bread every morning, a shared kitchen area, and a laundry room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Do you feel you really really must iron clothes while on hol? If oui, make straight for reception where you'll find everything you need.

    Friendly campsite, everyone says hello to each other, most pitches have some shade at least, and are of good size, clean facilities, staff always helpful, FREE use of washing machine and dryer!! Bar / snack bar next to site run separately, English run, serving a selection of English beer and cider alongside usual french offerings!!!

    Disliked: 

    Couldn't use the lake due to blue/green algae, however this is not the campsites fault, and the first time that this has happened, didn't have much impact on holiday as the pool is good, well maintained and clean. wifi is mixed, depending on number of users and type of phone.

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely comment, we are happy that you liked the campsite. We would be glad to welcome you again.
The wifi won't be anymore a problem next year as fibre optic is on her way :)

    The large well marked out pitches, the really well supervised pool which was spotlessly well kept. The fresh croissants and bread each morning and the free use of pedalos on the lake. The shop was well stocked and very reasonably priced with very friendly staff. I would thoroughly recommend this site and will definitely return.

    There is an English restraunt on the campsite and we all thought the food was nice all the staff are English and very friendly. The lady at reception is French but she can speak good English and is always helpful. Everyone at the campsite got half an hour free every morning on the peddle boats on the lake & we had free entry to the pool at all times & the toilets and showers are always clean the campsite is always kept maintained and SPOTLESS! Anything we needed like washing tablets ( free washing machine and dryer on site) fresh bread, milk, cereal, juice, water was available to buy at reception. Also There was a lovely walk next to the campsite that you could follow that was amazing, beautiful views.

    Disliked: 

    Because it was end of season the pool closed on the 9th September so I was a little disappointed as I would of liked to enjoy my last few days in the pool!

Lovely quiet nature site, very family friendly 15/08/2016

  • Electric optional grass pitch

  • Liked: 

    The pitches were a little uneven but with free choice of pitch to choose from. The weather was excellent, the pool was great and with free access to the Pedalos for campers. Washing machines and tumble dryers were all free which is really good news with small kids and teenagers and the small essentials shop was cheaper than the local supermarkets!!
    Staff were really friendly and helpful and it was a lovely quiet site, right in the heart of nature.
    Takeaway food was very good from the on-site restaurant.
    in 3 weeks of travelling around France this summer, this was our favourite site.

    Disliked: 

    Although free, Wifi didn't have great coverage unless you were sat at the pool or the restaurant, which forced our teenagers to leave the caravan (so not really a bad thing)!!

Local attractions

Camping du Lac de Mondon has easy access to local hiking and cycling trails and the lake next to the campsite has pedal boats for hire alongside its carp, perch and pike fishing. Both tennis and archery are available close by for a small charge.

If you're a foodie – and who wouldn't be in any part of France, say we – make it your mission to tackle as much of the local cuisine as poss, such as the traditional clafoutis and hazelnut cakes, all washed down with Limousin cider and – maybe – walked off afterwards with the geocaching activities available in the area courtesy of Haute-Vienne's Terra Aventura.

Other nearby popular places to visit are the medieval village of Saint-Benoit-du-Sault 13km away, and the Creuse town of La Souterraine within 18 kilometres.

The campsite's nearby town of Cromac is a 55km drive from Limousin's capital Limoges and is well worth a day trip to see its cathedral, art museum and the botanical garden.
