General

  • Peaceful wooded site on the banks of the Dordogne river
  • A 10-minute walk from Bergerac's attractions and amenities
  • Fishing, pétanque, playground and bakery on site

Doing the Dordogne? Bag a break at peaceful Camping La Pelouse for a bargain Bergerac base.

This splendid spot is in woods on the banks of the Dordogne river, in a convenient location for the town’s amenities (shops, restaurants and an excellent Saturday market among them) and attractions – it’s easy to abandon the car here and head out on foot or bikes to see the half-timbered houses of the historic centre. A short stroll also leads to boarding points for trips on traditional gabarre boats, and trails seeking out the Cyrano de Bergerac statues scattered around the town.

Bergerac’s rightly famed as a wine destination too – keen tipplers can learn about their drinks at the wine museum, and take tutored tastings (most handy that you can walk home from these). There's no shame however in skipping straight to the sipping; there are plenty of vineyards and wineries within a half-hour drive that will welcome guests in for a tour and to pick up bottles.

Back at the site, there’s plenty of space to chill out, with direct access to the river for fishing or waterside wine quaffing. You may also like to take your glass over to the pétanque court (it helps relax the bowling arm… perhaps) or to the playground while you supervise the small sorts.

Shops for snacks to accompany your drinks are easily reachable in town, but you can save yourself an early-morning outing by ordering breakfast bits from the bakery on site.

Please note

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

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Discount cards and gift vouchers cannot be applied to bookings made via Pitchup.com.

Good site, staff,location but no allocated slots & narrow entry/exit08/05/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric optional grass and earth motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Views, staff, facilities, location. Really nice riverside location and a short 10 min walk into Bergerac which is a beautiful city. Facilities are basic but clean and functional. Ideal for larger vans (apart from entry/exit) as you do not have to drive to see the city. Staff speak English and are very helpful.

    Disliked: 

    The entry is narrow and the exit is not sign posted to let you know if you follow Sat Nav you will end up down a narrow road with no way to make the sharp turn. The site should / must inform larger vans (over 6m) that you cannot go left when exiting as you will end up up stuck down a narrow road with two very tight 90* bends. There are no allocated pitches so its a free for all. If you went out for the day you would have to find a new pitch when you got back.

Directions


Local attractions

Begin your Bergerac break with a trip to the town museum, which houses a collection of wine exhibits. If drinking’s not your only vice, stop by at the Tobacco Museum for an insight into the history of smoking as well. For more wholesome outings, take a trip along the Dordogne on a traditional gabarre from the town pier or take a 15-minute drive to hire canoes and power your own paddling.

There’s plenty of wine to sip in town, but it’s also worth spending some time taking tours of some of the area’s top wineries – the excellent Château de Monbazillac (10 minutes’ drive) is a good place to start. Those with nippers who aren’t yet of drinking age may instead like to do their castle visits at Château de Lanquais (25 minutes) or Château de Lauzun (35 minutes).

Other wine-free days out locally include coming eye to eye with the biggest snake in Europe (a hefty 130 kilograms of serpent, no less) at Zoo de Mescoules (20 minutes) and moseying around the ancient mosaics at Montcaret archaeological site (40 minutes).
