Outdoor pool with large sun terrace

General

  • Quiet family-run site in the Limousin-Perigord Regional Natural Park
  • On-site restaurant, fishing lake and outdoor swimming pool
  • 20 minutes' drive from Brantôme for canoe trips

Lounging by the pool or lounging by the lake… such is the dilemma facing folks at Camping L'Étang Bleu, a well-established holiday park five minutes’ drive from the small Dordogne town Vieux-Mareuil.

Ideally, of course, you’ll have scope for a bit of both – grab drinks, ice creams and snacks from the pool bar if you’re settling in for the former, or accessorise with a fishing rod for the latter, as there’s a multitude of carp, bream and perch lurking in these waters. And should your appetite for quiet loafing wain somewhat, there’s plenty of ways to get active as well: work out in the gym, gather pals for games of table tennis, pétanque or pool, or accompany the small sorts to the playground.

Dining’s a doddle here, too: the bistro serves up a whole range of home-cooked meals (including kid-friendly pizzas) and popular theme meals are set up throughout the summer. If you’d rather do your own thing, you’re welcome to cook on a barbie (all the bits and bobs can be picked up at the supermarket 10 minutes’ drive away).

Local villages and markets are ace places to pick up grub too; French-speaking English owners Marc and Jo will happily dole out advice on their faves, and can help guests truffle out good spots for days of walking, cycling or canoeing through the Dordogne countryside.

    This is the second time we have stayed here and will be returning again, it's so welcoming and friendly, you really don't have to go off site but if you do there are some beautiful places to visit too.
    pitch sites are a good size with space for car, caravan and still enough space to sit with table and chairs etc.
    bar/restro really good food and a good evening out.

One of the most relaxing sites we've ever been on. ... 08/12/2018

    One of the most relaxing sites we've ever been on. Etang Bleu provided a perfect base for exploring North Perigord, and we found plenty of cultural pusuits to engage us (concerts, Perigeaux, the lovely nearby town of Brantome, troglodite sites, churches, etc.
    There are some lovely walks from the campsite - and Jo provided a useful walking guide for just over 2 euros - well worth buying. There was lots of wonderful nature to see if you enjoy that sort of thing - butterlfies, birds....
    Jo and Mark are a lovely couple, appearing very laid back, informative of the area, and wonderful hosts in the bar in the evening.
    We really enjoyed a wonderful holiday - a mixture of high, and occasionally wonderful low culture!! (See previous comment re the bar).
    The site has a very cooling swimming pool for the very hot weather, and long enough for some exercise to work off the locl food and wine. Children of course loved it.

Directions


Local attractions

There are heaps of lovely villages and towns to poke around nearby; the owners’ top picks include Nontron and Brantôme, which is home to a Benedictine abbey with an unusual troglodyte section. It’s also a fab place to hire canoes for a day paddling your way along the Dronne river. Both towns are about 20 minutes away by car.

A little further afield (around an hour’s drive) is the medieval town of Rochechouart, where the gorgeous 13th-century castle is now home to a cracking contemporary art museum. If you fancy racking up more château visits, those of Châlus-Chabrol, Bourdeilles and Brie are all less than an hour’s drive away.

If it’s more outdoorsy antics that you’re after, there’s heaps of those too – you’re in the Limousin-Perigord Regional Natural Park here, so there’s easy access to lots of walks and cycle paths, along with other activities including horse riding and canyoning. An adventure park with ziplines and treetop trails is half an hour away, and the folks on site sometimes organise go-kart outings too.
