My partner and I recently stayed at Camping Parc Verger, Chalet du Bois. We had a lovely week staying with Franc and Lisa on their lovely campsite. Both always very friendly and welcoming. They have built a pretty restaurant/cafe onsite serving excellent British food, morning, day and night. A well stocked bar of good wines and beer in comfortable and peaceful surroundings. The shower and toilet block was always clean and in great condition helping to make our stay very pleasant. Set in beautiful quiet countryside, you will not go wrong having a tranquil break, holiday or just passing through, whatever your needs. Thanks for having us - I'm sure we will be back!
Really nice site, Franc and Lisa always give a warm welcome and it is a good base to explore Nouvelle Aquitaine as a whole. I'd recommend visiting the boulangerie (sometimes they have a van that visits the site so it comes to you), there's a cafe on site which does great food and the village is really peaceful and great for a few shots
Very good, freshly cooked English menus. Lisa does an excellent job on Sundays - roast potatoes best to be found in Limousin! Great choice of starters, mains and desserts and Lisa will cater for various dietary requirements. Good vegan options. Highly recommended!
Franc is very accommodating nothing is to much trouble. Perfect site for relaxing. Cycle track 100m away which we use every time we visit. Have visited site many times and look forward to camping there again soon.
Arriving a little later than planned Franc was in quick email contact letting us know it was not a problem. Very relaxed and friendly site. There was no one in the pitch next to us and we were welcome to use the additional space. We had a meal cooked for us and the children and even a birthday cake and song for our youngest who turned 2 that day. We felt that the staff really did care and wanted us to have the best stay possible. Facilities and shower were excellent.
Very nice, friendly and personal welcome Sanitary: - daily cleaning: very tidy - toiletseat - toiletpaper - handsoap - papertowels Bakery comes along Very nice swimmingpool too cool off Pleasant bar where you can eat something, some evenings there is entertainment Quiet, lovely and calm place
Franc has a friendly welcome awaiting you, which sets the scene for your stay. Quiet and well kept. The showers & toilets are roomy and very clean . There are large pitches for the bigger units. The Sunday roast lunch in the air conditioned restaurant was delicious. There is a lovely off road cycle route just off the site. Would definitely recommend this site.
We picked this site as when looking for somewhere to stay around the area it came up that it took American Motorhomes. As we have one we chose this site. Very reasonably priced. Its quite small which we liked and exceptionally clean. There is a small "above ground" pool to cool off in if you get too hot. The stay was made all the more enjoyable by the friendly nature of the owner Frank. Nothing was too much trouble and he is really trying to make a success of this business - so hope it all works out for him. We have been in France for around 6 weeks and everywhere is very quiet. It appears that the Brits have stayed away this year so far. Another plus is the very charismatic wardens! If you go you will see what I mean. I hope that Mr C sings "my Way" for you. We only had a line or two but he did keep threatening to sing the whole thing! What a great couple!! On the Saturday night a band came and played who were excellent. Really enjoyed this evening. Even Frank played the drums and his Ukulele! The site is well placed for Supermarkets and we had to visit a Vet while we were there which was only about 10 mins down the road and very modern with some English speaking staff. Close to Brantome and Perigueux whch are worth a visit. Also we went to the Roman Baths Cassinomagvs. These were really interesting and well worth a visit.It was a very relaxing stay. I would say its not really for children unless they know how to entertain themselves.…
We intended to stay for just a week with our large touring caravan, but ended up staying for two, and then calling off again for another week on our return from further south in France! The caravan site is run by Franc.. who works non stop to ensure that it is kept immaculate. His warm welcome and wish to help you in any way he can made our stay at the site just wonderful. The pitches are large and we had a fully serviced one which was excellent. The toilets and showers were spotless and the use of a washing machine (small cost) was brilliant. We regularly bought fresh eggs from the lady in the house by the reception, and a bread van called most mornings too. Within a few miles there were several large supermarkets for other requirements. Jackie runs the Chalet du Bois cafe and small bar on the site - which is open most days for lovely snacks, and she also does evening meals on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and does Sunday lunch at the weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed a meal with fun karaoke night included..a great time to meet others on the site. The area has so much to see and do...we hope to return again in the near future. Thank you Franc and Jackie. Xx…
Having spent the previous night in a rundown campsite with no other visitors and but basic amenities, I was delighted to find that Parc Verger is at the complete opposite of the spectrum as far as I was concerned. The campsite is neither too small nor too large so retains a peaceful atmosphere, at least in February, when I was visiting. Although I have a campervan, it is very basic so the hot showers and toilet facilities were very welcome. The site is well maintained too, several of the pitches have a certain amount of privacy with surrounding hedges, though the one I was on was open but overlooking a small wood where goats were wandering about. (They are well fenced in!) I had a problem with the electricity hook up as my connector was not compatible with that on the site. But it wasn't a problem to Frank, the owner, who lent me an adaptor. Not only that, but having realised I might encounter a similar situation on my travels, I bought a plug and Frank is making up an adaptor for me. If that is not going the extra mile, then I don't know what is. Jackie is in charge of the kitchen as there is a small café/ bar/restaurant on the site. I enjoyed a vegetarian lunch at a very reasonable price. The campsite is a very short walk from the village where there is a bread shop and a pizzeria. You don't even have to walk to the bread shop as the bread van calls at the campsite. If like me,you like walking , the voie verte is a few hundred metres from the site and there are other circular walks in the vicinity. Frank provided me with a leaflet giving details of other local attractions too. So if you are looking for a peaceful halt or a longer stay, Frank and Jackie have just the site for you. I shall put it on my list of places to return to.…
