Le Val d’Ussel, a campsite close to Sarlat in the Périgord region

Le Val d’Ussel is a 4-star campsite located 5 kilometres from Sarlat, the capital of the Périgord Noir in the Dordogne. A member of the Marvilla Parks group, this campsite in Proissans occupies a superb 7-hectare lush and landscaped park by two lakes. The setting is idyllic for a family holiday, with a water park, recreational facilities and luxury holiday rentals!

A 4-star campsite near Sarlat la Canéda

On the Le Val d'Ussel campsite, the water park is open from April to September. It overlooks the two lakes running alongside the campsite. Superbly incorporated into the landscape, this area set aside for swimming and idleness, consists of a large, indoor heated swimming pool, with a paddling pool for the very young, an outdoor pool, 3 thrill-seeker water slides and an exceptional sunbathing area to bask in the Dordogne sunshine.

Regarding accommodation available for hire on this establishment, the “Classic” range takes the form of air-conditioned, basic and well-equipped cottages. The “Confort” (“Comfort”) models are cosier still and even come in an “XL” version for large families. If you wish to travel light, you can hire sheets and towels and book a “cleaning” package, to make the most of your holiday right up to the last minute, with complete peace of mind!

This Dordogne establishment also offers holidaymakers a multitude of services. Near the water park, there is a grocery for emergency provisions with fruit, vegetables, bread, sweetbreads and buns as well as regional produce and products. You can also order takeaways and enjoy excellent dishes, concocted by the restaurant chef on the Le Val d’Ussel campsite.

An idyllic setting in which to recharge your batteries and unwind

There are numerous sports and recreational facilities on-site. Plenty to have fun during a football, basketball, handball, volleyball, tennis or even badminton match. In the high season, the Le Val d’Ussel activity leaders offer fitness, aquafun, yoga and muscle stretching classes. Children and teens aged 4 to 17 can meet and have fun by going to one of the on-site mini clubs.

Pétanque competitions, sports activities and pool games are regularly organized in the daytime. Around the campsite, several footpaths offer the opportunity for walks or cycle rides. At the end of the day, themed meals, dance evenings, cabarets, magic shows and fiery karaoke nights liven up your evenings.

The Dordogne and Vézère are two rivers crossing the Périgord, sought-after for canoeing. Going down these water courses is the chance to admire numerous delightful villages and various castles perched on their rocky peaks. You can have an even better view of these, during a bucolic trip in a hot air balloon. As for young adventurers, they can climb from tree to tree on the 6 forest adventure courses in the “Indian Forest Perigord” (a treetop adventure theme park) in Carsac-Aillac, around 15 kilometres from Le Val d’Ussel.

The Dordogne and must-sees in the Périgord Noir

The town of Sarlat la Canéda is renowned for its preserved architectural heritage, dating back to medieval times and the Renaissance. The town is a genuine paradise for lovers of history and gastronomy. Stroll through the delightful alleyways, visit the town hall, Order of Notre Dame convent or one of the 66 listed buildings, and stock up on local produce and products in the market stalls whose reputation has, for a long time, gone way beyond the region!

In Montignac, the Lascaux caves and their prehistoric cave paintings have been awaiting you for around 17,000 years! Discovered in 1940, they are now protected to ensure they remain preserved, but you’ll discover the impressive frescoes depicting animals and humans within Lascaux IV, the replica at the Centre International de l'Art Pariétal Montignac-Lascaux (Centre for International Cave Art).

Beynac castle, perched on a cliff, offers a spectacular view over the Dordogne river. There is no shortage of charm inside the keep, guardroom and Renaissance staircase. On the other side of the river, the Castelnaud la Chapelle castle houses a Musée de la Guerre au Moyen-âge (Museum of War in the Middle Ages), with a collection of weapons and armour. Finally, equally don’t delay in going to the medieval town of Domme, and the magnificent troglodyte village of La Roque Gageac, with the “Plus Beaux Villages de France” (most beautiful villages in France) designation.
