We stayed here for the first time in August. We had a Eurocamp tent with pitch view. It overlooked the field to the PGL. Having looked round the site, it was definitely worth paying extra for his type of pitch. The weather was very hot - over 100 degrees one some days. We were glad we had a tent in the trees - being able to roll up the sides during the day kept it relatively cool.
The facilities on site were excellent. We did not eat in the restaurant but did use the pizzeria and take away. The shop was very well stocked and was not too expensive. Had we known about it when we arrived, we would have definitely used one of the sites payment cards for use on the site in the shop, bar etc.
Pool facilities were very busy - but it was the height of summer. All pools very clean and site staff did keep an eye out especially on the crazy river. Excited teenagers do not always mix well with younger children but staff managed to keep things under control. Our 8 and 5 yr old loved it. Only negative point was the loose tiles on the path to the lower pool and the narrow steps joining the pools.
Surrounding area is beautiful with lots to do. Thoroughly recommend canoeing on the Dordogne but avoid Le Bugue on Tuesday which is market day and it becomes gridlocked (as we found out!!). Stayed for 9 nights before moving onto another Eurocamp site on the coast. Got home and immediately booked to go back in 2013 - for 15 nights.
