Le Moulin du Châtain: Moulin du Châtain overview

General

  • Peaceful family park over five hectares in the Périgord Vert
  • Fishing ponds, pool, playground, walking paths and daily food baskets
  • Bar, restaurant and shop selling fish and lots of local produce

It's the Dordogne, so you'll already know it's going to be pretty lush. But Moulin du Châtain in the Périgord Vert five kilometres from Payzac is a splendid site even for these surrounds: by the water with two fishing ponds; on five green hectares in a peaceful wildlife haven, and set up so you can sample much local gastronomy with utter ease – the shop on site is stuffed with produce from local merchants, and gourmet baskets and breakfast baskets are available daily.

Traditional villages, vineyards, walks and bike rides are all easy to access from here, but you'll want to stick around the site for much of your hol too, whether you fancy fishing, strolling or just lounging about (avec eats). The site's setting on the Belles Dames stream is surrounded by ponds, one of which is reserved solely for Moulin du Châtain guests to cast off for pike, perch, carp and roach; there's a private pond too where you can arrange trout fishing for the day or half day.

As well as the gourmet and brekkie baskets (order when you arrive, please), the site's chef also dishes up homemade food in the Moulin du Châtain restaurant, and – if you've been less than lucky in your casting off – trout is available to buy by the kilo at the fish farm open from March during fishing hours and all day long in July and August.

Peaceful picnic areas are dotted around the park, alongside excellent leisure facilities including a pool and a paddling pool, volleyball, ping pong, a library with board games, and a playground with slides, sandpit and a trampoline.

    Perhaps my favorite site of the summer. Fabulous bathrooms ( bigger than an apartment!) Gorgeous private pitches shaded with mature trees. Amazingly kind and helpful staff who got up at almost 11 pm to let us in and provided us with morning milk from their fridge!

    Disliked:

    L'accueil est sympathique, et la personne a pris le temps de venir me montrer les emplacements pour camping-cars.
    Le camping est calme, et les deux étangs de pèche sont très agréables.
    Les propriétaires sont à l'écoute, et font leur possible pour nous venir en aide.
    Petite piscine bien propre et pas surpeuplée.
    Petit plus de notre séjour, une soirée moules-frites avec un concert de blues.

Directions


Local attractions

A path through the site leads to the waterfall of the stream of Belles Dames, or you can potter for a kilometre from to the eco museum of Papeterie De Vaux, delving into the region's lengthy paper and stationery industry.

Moulin du Châtain borders the Corrèze region, in a rural setting of caves, old villages and forges such as the nearby the Forges Savignac Lédrier in the Auvézère valley. The team also recommends hiking around the Auvezère gorges about half an hour away, visiting the village and cave of Tourtoirac, and exploring the châteaux of Jumilhac and Hautefort, both within 40 minutes.

A leisure centre and indoor and outdoor activities of all sorts are at Rouffiac, 15 minutes' drive away.
