We stayed at the Peneyrals campsite in the summer of 2006, in a bungalow for 4 to 6 persons. (We're a family of four, kids aged 9 and 12 at the time of the stay)
The welcome they gave us says it all - The first thing is you're led in to the restaurant/bar-area where they give you a free drink while you wait for them to get everything ready. For the travellers we are this was very welcome, and we immediately felt at home.
After that we were escorted to our bungalow, which was nice, clean and tidy, with enough room for the four of us. (one bedroom with a double bed, one smaller bedroom with two single beds, a bathroom with shower and WC, and the main room with tv, sofa, dining table and a small kitchen)
The campsite has lots of facilities for families, like playground, game-room, large pool-area with slides and many different pools for all age groups. They also have a covered indoor pool for when the weather's not playing nice.
We were there during the football world cup, and of course all the important games are shown on large screens in the bar area.
The restaurant is nice and cozy - serving international and local dishes, and the bar is very good too. A fast-food/take-away option is also available, and a mini-market for those preferring to prepare their own food.
The staff is nice and friendly, and they speak english. When we left, they gave us a bottle of wine with the label of the campsite, as a farewell gift. Not much, but it gives the extra touch of good service.
We had one of the best holidays ever in this campsite, and would recommend it to anyone interested in seeing the Dordogne valley with all its mideval castles and villages, green forests and steep cliffs.
I would recommend going with a car or on motorcycle, since this is way out in the countryside. But if you're going to Dordogne, I'm sure you know that.
