Wealth of the Dordogne
Dordogne was a land of conflict between the kingdom of France and the kingdom of England. The Dordogne valley is also the region of a thousand and one castles and beautiful villages. Discover Besse and its XNUMXth century listed churche and XVIe centuries, Goujounac, Monpazier and its craftsmen, Belvès and its troglodyte houses, Prayssac and its circular construction or even Puy l'Evêque and its breathtaking views over the Lot valley...
It is good to walk on the Wine Route of Bergerac and Toques du Périgord. The gastronomy and the oenological riches of the region can be discovered at the producers and in the restaurants. The markets of Monsempron-Libos, Prayssac, Saint Cyprien, Cazals or even Sarlat also await you.
This valley, bathed by the Dordogne, the Isle and the Vézère, is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. From the Millevaches plateau, you will dive into the Vézère and go up the valley from cave to cave to Lascaux.

Along the water
The Dordogne is ideal for enjoying the pleasures of water. Swimming, paddle, pedal boat or electric boat... But also canoeing or fishing... On the Dordogne or on the Lot, you will enjoy a multitude of activities to discover the landscapes.
Children will love discovering birds and birds of prey at the Château des Milandes, fish and reptiles in the Périgord Noir aquarium, monkeys in the Rocamadour monkey forest or endangered species in the Calviac zoological reserve. And to combine business with pleasure, local breeders will show you their ducks, goats, biquettes, black-bottomed pigs and wild boars...
You will have the choice between about thirty caves, shelters and museums. From the well-known Lascaux to the nearby Sauveterre museum, immerse yourself in this very distant atmosphere, in the footsteps of the first men.
Recreation in nature
Take advantage of the wide variety of landscapes to discover new horizons. Limestone cliffs around beautiful rivers, arid causses or deep forests, hilly vineyards await you for your hikes, bike rides or horseback rides.
A mountain bike rental with or without electric assistance is available near the camping.
For a ride on horseback, in a carriage or in the company of a donkey, the Camping La Bastide is a partner of a local equestrian center.
Then practice rock climbing on the nearby cliffs of Montcabrier, or in Vézac or Castelnau to enjoy the view of the Dordogne, abseil down the ramparts of the Château de Gavaudun, or enjoy tree climbing courses for the whole family. .
