The outdoor pool

General

  • Three restored medieval farmsteads with spectacular valley views
  • Winery tours and tastings around local Dordogne valley vineyards
  • Outdoor pool, two playgrounds, restaurant, snack bar and creperie

If swish, pristine and packed with modern facilities is what you’re after, then you might just want to pause for a sec and peruse this site’s pics.

With cracking views out across the surrounding countryside, Domaine de La Paille Basse is set among a hilltop woodland 250 metres above sea level, with many family-friendly facilities housed across three handsome and pristinely restored medieval farm buildings.

You’ll probably want to check out the pool area first – or at least the kids will when they find out there’s a four-lane super slide to swoosh down. The rest of the family can splash around in the pool or bask alongside, or instead avail themselves of sports and games facilities like ping pong, basketball, football, water volleyball, tennis and pétanque. Aqua aerobics classes run in July and August.

Also in summer, kids will be most entertained by the site’s resident clown and teddy bear mascot, as well as the kids' club activities every morning such as treasure hunts, dancing and cuddles with furry critters at the mini farm... And when they’re not being occupied by this plethora of pursuits, they’ll most likely be spied at one of the site’s two playgrounds or playing with new pals in the games room.

The bar serves relaxed evening drinks on the terrace under the shade of a huge horse chestnut tree, where there's evening entertainment too in peak season. Homemade regional eats are served at the restaurant for dining in or taking away; there's also a snack bar and creperie, and a shop for the self caterers.

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.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 06/04 and 14/09 (subject to weather conditions).

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

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Great site for family's with three pools and water slides plus an area with water spraying animals for the toddlers to enjoy. Evening entertainment for the kids too quizzes, karaoke etc.
    Facilities were plentiful and kept spotless the cleaner even jet washed the drain covers daily!
    Even though it was high season never had to queue for showers etc- top marks.

    Disliked: 

    Initially given a pitch in shaded woodlands, which whilst probably appreciated by most given the heat we prefer open grassy pitches, a quick word with reception staff though and they gave us a nice pitch out in the open so thank you again.

    Definattely not for couples.
    The whole site is heaving with children who play unsupervised in every available space.
    The pool area is busy busy busy! and even though there is a rule of no reserving sun beds .....no one is seen to enforce that I witnessed beds overflowing with towels inflatables etc but unoccupied for two hours or more !
    We paid for services on pitch but had to use services on pitch next to us......
    Definattely not for the faint hearted!

  • La Paille Basse, Souillac, Lot, France, 46200
  • Timezone Europe/Paris CEST (GMT+02:00)   GPS 44.9454°N 1.4413°E

Directions


Please note: It's highly recommended that guests don't rely on a satnav, as it's likely to be incorrect. From the A20, take Exit 55 for Souillac. At the second roundabout after the toll, drive towards Salignac. Follow signs only for 'La Paille Basse'; the site is eight kilometres from Souillac.

Local attractions

Set between the pretty Périgord region and the village of Souillac, the site is among an area that's full of national heritage sites, cultural activities and the promise of sampling many a tasty gastronomic treat: right in the Dordogne valley between Rocamadour and Sarlat (both within 50 minutes’ drive).

History hunters can catch a spot of natural history at the Lascaux caves and the national prehistory museum in Les Eyzies, or if you’re more of an active sort, you can round up the family, load them into canoes or kayaks and embark on a gentle paddle along the Dordogne river.

Excursions to the lush and local Dordogne valley vineyards are just one of the many top trips off site; also highly recommended by site staff is a trip to one of the many local farms, some of which produce France’s famed foie gras.
