Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Camping L'Eau Vive is placed in a little village Carennac on Route de St Cere.
For access by car:
- From the A20 take Exit 54 signposted Gramat then take the D840 towards Martel/Rocamadour. Follow the D43 into Carennac, cross the bridge signposted Carennac and turn left.
There's so much to see around this part of the Lot… first up should be a day at local town Carennac, listed as one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France. Its old streets are lined with sixteenth- and seventeenth-century houses in the local white-yellow stone, and its sixteenth-century castle the Château de Doyen has an exhibition on the town's history.
Close by is a very famed and popular French holiday destination in the small but spectacular cliffside village of Rocamadour, a place of pilgrimage for centuries. It's one of the most visited places in France (around a million souls every year), but is a must-see if you're in the region; try going early or out of season to escape its busiest times.
Also nearby are the Padirac Chasm or Gouffre de Padirac, a 99-metre chasm and the most visited cave in France. It's also a must, particularly taking the underground boat past its caverns and lake.
Other towns in the area – also highly recommended – are the red sandstone village of Collonges-la-Rouge; the medieval towns of Sarlat and Gramat with their famed architecture and weekly markets, and the town of Bretenoux and its thirteenth-century Château de Castelnau-Bretenoux.
