Camping de la Dronne: Large pitch area

General

  • Dordogne site a few minutes' walk from the centre of Ribérac
  • Half an hour from Brantôme and 45 minutes from Périgueux
  • Direct access to the Dronne river for fishing; canoe hire close by

La Dronne… bien sûr. That, of course, is the river that flows right past the edge of Camping de la Dronne. And the belle part? That refers to the river too, and to the surrounds in general, for this is a most scenic part of the Dordogne region.

That riverside setting and direct access to the water make this family-friendly spot particularly fab for folk who like to fish (although you’re more than welcome simply to snooze in the shade should you wish). Canoes can be hired a few minutes’ walk away if you’d like to see a little more of the river’s stunning scenery; once you’ve had a bit of practice at paddling there’s more to be done half an hour away at Brantôme.

Golf, an adventure park, cave explorations and château visits may also be on the agenda for guests here, along with plenty of places to pick at the Périgord’s fab foodie treats (think duck, asparagus, chestnuts, mushrooms, foie gras and mounds of pleasingly pungent cheeses…) Ribérac, a few minutes’ stroll away, is your closest place for shops, bars, restaurants and a market to source all the bits; wander to Villetoureix in half an hour if you fancy venturing further.

An on-site bar is open throughout the year for cold drinks and ice creams. For food and shopping, there's a market open every Friday and a car boot sale by the site entrance on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.

Please note

The bar is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

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

The campground/park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

    Large, well-defined spaces. It's a nice shady site run by Ludo who seems to run the place single-handedly!
    Quite a few fishermen just spending they're day with their rod in the water!
    Pizza van came round in the evening which is to be recommended.
    Overall, a quiet place, but the town is nothing to write home about. For WiFi, you need to be close to the reception area.

    The location with the beautiful river Dronne surrounding 2 sides. Lovely big pitches with trees for shade. Very well maintained grounds. Clean & well maintained toilet & shower block with plenty of hot water. The owner Ludo makes you feel welcome. He arranged for an artisanal pizza van one night & a happy hour another night when he provided wine & brochettes. Overall a calm & welcoming atmosphere. Short walk into Riberac. Lovely restaurant across the road. Very highly recommended.

    Friendly, helpful owner. Lots of level, shaded pitches (essential in a heatwave as our adapted van is a bread oven at night otherwise) . Adjoins a lovely little river for swimming. Facilities are in tune with the site (rustic, nothing flash) After the hailstorm battering earlier this year, Riberac has started to bounce back and deserves your support - a handy base to visit Carennac (lovely medieval village), Le Jemaye (lakeside) or Perigreux

    Ludon the proprietor could not be more friendly and helpful. Lovely pitches on the riverbank (would not be suitable with little ones) and you can swim in the dam or paddle in the river. Disabled showers better than other shower units. Other facilities were good. Loved the second hand junk shop just outside the site over the bridge. Large supermarket nearby. It was too hot to visit the nearby town of Riberac but when we drove through it looked well worth a visit.

    You can feel the tranquility as you drive in , beautiful level pitch on the edge of the river with trees draping branches that give perfect blend of shade and sun and we could even have fished from our pitch or hired a kayak on site but I chose to relax in the sun. We paddled in the river by the little waterfall and could walk to the village which had cafes and restaurants. Clean and super friendly site and great value, I could have stayed for weeks and just visited all the lovely villages around. Nobody could forget our host Ludo who was the most helpful , kind caring and hard working gentleman who would go way above necessary to look after his customers. I would highly recommend as a stopover or for a much longer stay, great place to renew your energy and relax.

Directions


Local attractions

Once you’ve paddled around locally, it’s worth launching out for a second trip from Brantôme, a gorgeous little riverside town half an hour away by car. Before boarding your vessel, take a wander around the abbey, making sure you don't miss the troglodyte section carved into a cave at the back.

For more swish buildings to stroll around, set out for medieval/Renaissance mash-up Château de Bourdeilles (25 minutes’ drive) or Château-l’Évêque (35 minutes), where the castle is surrounded by well-kept gardens. Périgueux (45 minutes), is a real hive of history too, with Roman, medieval and Renaissance buildings to spot between stops for food (those in the know point to Périgueux as the area’s top place for foodie foraging).

Time for a break from architecture spotting? Trot over to Poltrot leisure park (15 minutes) for a beach, maze and high ropes course, or give your golf clubs an outing on the course 20 minutes away.
