General

Welcome to Camping les Gorges du Chambon where Pascal, Lidewij and the rest of the team invite you to spend your holiday enjoying a family atmosphere and excellent services and facilities.

The site is perfectly-located to discover the beauties of Charente, Limousin and Perigord Vert, and it has a quiet, natural setting. A small river beach is accessible just 150m away via a footpath. The Tardoire river is perfect for a day out fishing. You will need a fishing licence. Fish free of charge at the small private pond (about six kilometres away).

Onsite, there are two toilet blocks with showers, hot water, a baby bathroom and laundry facilities. Camping pitches are located just a short walk away, although some of the pitches are a bit more isolated and close to the entrance of the wood. Pets are welcome.

The heated swimming pool and new paddling pool are kept at a pleasant water temperature throughout the season. Don't forget the sun block, however. Sun loungers and parasols are available around the swimming pool.

Table tennis and mini golf course can be used free of charge. If that's not enough, the sports field will keep active guests busy throughout their stay.

There is also a small tennis court, good enough for beginners and children, but it is not Wimbledon! Should you fancy a real game of tennis, you will find another larger tennis court just 100m away (this is also free to use).

The team here will organise evening entertainment, themed nights, water polo, volleyball or football games, guided hiking tours, and mini club for kids. Staff speak Dutch, German, French and English so that everyone can take part.

    Absolutely lovely site, beautiful location. We camped and the pitches were not set out so you could pitch your tent almost anywhere you wanted amongst the trees on the grassed area set aside for camping, but this was shared by caravans and motor homes. The bar was really good, they did do food but we did not eat there so cannot comment on this. Toilet & shower facilities were great.
    The staff were really friendly and helpful.
    One of the girls in reception even added our next campsite into our Garmin sat-nav for us as we could not find. We ordered a fresh baguette from reception for in the morning and it was gorgeous.
