A revitalizing holiday in the heart of the Périgord Noir
In July and August, a children’s club set aside for those aged 4 to 12 is open five days a week. On the programme, there are sports tournaments, family games and creative and fun activities. Invariably, during the two summer months, the campsite activity leaders offer three teens events a week.

From the Les Granges campsite, either on foot or by bike (bike hire is available on-site!), you can go off to explore the wonders of the Périgord Noir and the GR 64 (a long distance walking trail, which goes through Groléjac). You’ll be filled with wonder by the magnificent landscapes amongst natural spaces, forests, valleys, castles and picturesque villages. The route of the GR 64 is flat and accessible to all levels of ability. Also developing along the Dordogne river, the opportunities for swimming on natural beaches are numerous here...
To give pleasure to the young, head for the “Forêt des Ecureuils” (treetop adventure and Via Ferrata), located in the heart of the Saint Vincent de Paluel forest. Discover an amazing park with 51 zip wires on 14 treetop adventure courses, suitable for all ages.
Soon, the Dordogne will no longer hold any secrets for you!
17 kilometres from the campsite, the town of Sarlat la Canéda, the capital of the Périgord Noir, is a must-see. This town which has the Ville d’Art et d’Histoire designation (reflecting its heritage, architecture and living environment), is a genuine medieval town bursting with treasures. Stroll through the cobbled streets, walk around the local markets and discover the classified buildings such as the Couvent de l’Ordre de Notre-Dame convent or the Manoir de Gisson manor house (both with the Monument Historique historic building designation).
In the course of your stay at the Les Granges campsite, also stop in La Roque Gageac, a superb troglodytic village in the Périgord Noir. Admire the south-facing cliffs, and the magnificent houses with tiled roofs. Take a trip in a gabarre, a traditional flat-bottomed boat, along the Dordogne. The view will be even more impressive from the river. Unless you choose to have an unforgettable experience, by flying over the valley’s castles in a hot-air balloon!
Lastly, famous the world over, visit the Lascaux caves and the Gouffre de Proumeyssac chasm. This is the largest laid out cavity in the Périgord. Several dozen metres underground, the walls of its cavern are adorned with an impressive number of crystals. For this reason, it has earned the nickname “Cathedral of Crystal”...
