Electric grass pitch

Liked: Nothing to like about this site unfortunately.

Disliked: I found this site to be lacking to be honest. Closed down toilet and shower facilities and the site was very water logged making the pitches sodden and very difficult to park upon. Several motorhomes were stuck in the mud! I also became stuck as can happen on campsites. The campsite owner was very rude and seemed content to lay all the blame on me parking on the pitch! He became overly aggressive. Not really a good attitude towards helping campers out! I wouldn't recommend at all.

From the manager: Bonjour Monsieur, les sanitaires et douches sont bien évidemment ouverts, vous n'êtes simplement pas aller au bon endroits. En effet, nous avons un second bloc sanitaire qui n'ouvre qu'en juillet quand il y a plus de monde. En effet quand vous êtes venu les terrains été gorgé d'eau suite aux nombreuses pluies, mon mari vous avez demandé de vous garer en marche avant car vous aviez une propulsion arrière. Mais vous avez préféré faire comme vous vouliez, choisir un terrain, l'abimer, puis partir sur un autre et l'abimer également. Sur ce dernier, vous êtes resté coincé, mon mari à eu la gentillesse de vous sortir au tracteur plutôt que d'appeler une dépanneuse (qui vous aurez couté très cher). Il vous a précisé de ne pas accélérer, chose que vous n'avez pas respecté en accélérant fortement ce qui à labouré le terrain. Mon mari s'est agacé autant que les personne témoins autour de vous de votre comportement et du manque de respect des conseils qu'il vous avez donné. Suite à cela vous êtes parti à vive allure dans le camping sans un merci à notre égard pour vous avoir dépanné. Je tiens à vous préciser, que suite à votre départ, nous avons du remettre à niveau le terrain et re semer du gazon pour que nos futurs clients ne subissent pas les dégâts que vous avez causé. Il n'est pas nécessaire d'exagérer dans vos propos envers mon mari qui n'est pas du tout agressif. Bien au contraire c'est un immense plaisir pour lui comme pour moi d'accueillir des campeurs tout au long de la saison malgré parfois, des conditions climatique compliqué. Bien cordialement

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Beautiful well maintained campsite, set on the side of a lovely river, decent sized pitch, swimming pool gorgeous and all facilities clean and tidy. Bar on site was great, we sat out one night and the choice of drinks was great.

Disliked: Location isn’t great, there isn’t much to do in the area and the local town isn’t the best. Wasn’t a massive problem for as we just took the time to relax mid road trip but wouldn’t necessarily recommend for that reason.

Local attractions

The Isle river runs for 255 kilometres through south-western France, including the Périgueux region where Camping La Cigaline is set. As with long stretches of the rest of the river, the banks around here are prime fishing territory; if you're plotting to cast off while here, you can pick up a permit at the tobacconists 200 metres from the site. Swimming is allowed in the river and in the Grand Étang de la Jemaye, the six connected big ponds making up an artificial lake about 20 minutes from La Cigaline; it's a popular local place for watersports. Other active options nearby are at Chandos Leisure Centre, a short drive from the site, where you can hire a pedal boat or a kayak, laze on the beach or have a swim. A games room, fitness trail, picnic area and miniature golf are in its surrounding park. From Cigaline's local town of Montpon-Menesterol, it's about 20 kilometres to Eynesse and around 30 to both the peaceful town of Riberac and the half-timbered houses and old centre of Bergerac. You could also potter around the châteaux of the area, or visit its fortified villages, such as Villefranche-de-Lonchat, Benevent and Saint-Barthelemy-de-Bellegarde.
