    Les espaces verts, la disposition des chalets et mobilhomes surface très acceptable et correcte. La piscine pas trop mal. Chalet extérieur d'aspect correct mais......... voir n'a pas aimé !
    Accueil satisfaisant.

    Disliked: 

    La piscine surchauffée du 4 au 11 septembre la piscine n'a pas été découverte sensation oppressante d'eau et vapeur chaude.
    Chalet : Non isolée, sans chauffage, en bref incroyable de louer un chalet sans chauffage hors saison (froid et humide) dommage extérieur plutôt sympa.
    Literie : Impossible matelas très, très dur et très vieux comme oreillers, inconcevable même si tarif le plus bas (réflexion de la propriétaire) - couettes a changer impératifs (bouloches, pas propres ainsi que couvertures)
    Boutique, restauration inexistante pour un début septembre " moyen, moyen ".

    DOMMAGE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Loved Ventoulou camping site. Location is very central to everything. So what ever you wish to do, is all reachable & do-able. The owners & staff are very friendly & helpful. We don't speak very much French, but this was not a problem, staff are willing to bridge the language barrier with their English. Very pleasant stay of 9 days.. Would have liked to stay longer, but all good things come to an end.
    Ask Fred for his orange & rum cocktail. This is very refreshing on a hot evening. Wine shops & hyper market all within 10min drive... Plenty of restaurants at hand with excellent food... We are planning to go back next year.
    So much to see & do....

    Many thanks to Nattalie & Fred...not forgetting Micheal/ Paul & Rean. Hope to see you all next year..xxxxx

    Nothing to dislike. Would live there in a heartbeat...

    The campsite is not too big, just perfect for family holiday. The pool and other facilities were clean. I was travelling through with my two daughters (16y and 9y) and stayed for a night only. Staff were very welcoming and accommodating. They allowed us to stay as long as we wanted by the poolside on the day of our departure. This made a big difference to our journey and both my girls appreciated the extra hours at the pool. The restaurant was good and the whole experience was personal and more homely than at most other campsites.

Local attractions

Make the Camping Le Ventoulou reception your first port of call when considering what to see and do in the Lot and Dordogne valleys, as the team knows its stuff and can also offer discounts for some nearby activities.

There's loads to see without having to drive too far: Rocamadour, Padirac, Figeac, Loubressac, Autoire and Carennac are all a short distance away, and the small and comely villages of Sarlat, Collonges La Rouge and St Cirq Lapopie are nearby.

The area has heaps of natural countryside to explore too and – c'est France, after all – a diverse range of food and wine to get stuck into. Flea markets, pottery and craft fairs, night markets, fireworks, concerts, dances, a country festival and an opera festival all run in the summer season.

Outdoorsy types can take their pick from many activities available locally, like trekking, mountaineering, horse riding, canoeing and kayaking, climbing, caving, abseiling, paragliding or diving. A fishing lake is less than 10 kilometres from the park, or you could fish in the Dordogne river less than 15 kilometres away.
