idyllic surroundings for relaxing holidays.
Halfway between Sarlat-la-Canéda and the commune of Montignac Lascaux, La Bouquerie campsite is situated in the commune Saint-Geniès, 850 metres from the village. Its historic centre, with its Romanesque church, its castle and stone houses with traditional schist-tile roofs creates one of the most beautiful architectural groupings in the Périgord area.
In the heart of a wooded and lush 9-hectare park, this 5-star campsite in the Dordogne region welcomes holidaymakers seeking a holiday destination ideally situated in the Périgord area. This is a location with countryside and peace, but where, for all that, there is no shortage of activities and entertainments. The layout of the campsite has been thought out in such a way as to preserve the tranquillity for holidaymakers, whilst offering them a wide choice of leisure activities.
Although services, shops and leisure facilities are concentrated around the entrance to the Le Bouquerie campsite, pitches and accommodation for hire are located beyond this zone, nestled deep within a wood or around an equally delightful lake.
Although some plots, either shaded or with copious amounts of sunshine, are intended to welcome campers and their tent, caravan or camping-car, the majority of pitches are now occupied by comfortable accommodation units. Moreover, there is a high range of the latter, including chalets and mobile homes. Depending upon their respective area and layout, they can accommodate from 2 to 11 people.
5-star facilities and services at the heart of the Périgord Noir
Once they have settled in, holidaymakers at the 5-star campsite Périgord campsite can make the most of the whole range of services and benefits offered on-site. One example of the latter is La Bouquerie restaurant, which has traditional and regional food which goes down extremely well with gourmets. We should say that the home-cooked small dishes are for the most part prepared from fresh produce from a region which now has nothing to prove on either the gastronomy front or its area's production capabilities! Moreover, the restaurant caters for campsite summer evenings.
For the smallest of hunger pangs, go to the La Bouquerie snack bar, where besides takeaway dishes, you can enjoy freshly-cooked pizzas, paninis and other fast food specialities. The campsite bar, offers an entire range of cold drinks, both with or without alcohol, for consumption either indoors or on the terrace which opens directly onto the campsite's aquatic park. Moreover, within the bar holidaymakers can make the most of a library, a games library as well as a billiards room.

This includes the sale of bread and sweet breads and buns such as brioches, croissants and pains au chocolat cooked on-site.

Moreover, at the heart of Le Périgord Noir, this luxurious Saint Geniès campsite has amazing leisure facilities to meet holidaymakers' expectations. From the aquatic park to the multi-sports ground, children's playgrounds and the paintballing field (which is unique in the Dordogne), there is certainly something for all tastes and all ages!
The Dordogne's Périgord, an amazing destination!
There is no doubt that the aquatic park on the La Bouquerie campsite, one of the loveliest in the Dordogne, remains the most successful campsite facility. With an impressive area, it is made up of an indoor section of 380 m² comprising a large 200 m² heated pool, as well as a play pool for young children with its mushroom fountain. Around this pool, adults may take advantage of the benefits of the balneotherapy jets for wonderful moments of unwinding. Lastly, its outdoor section comprises, besides a paddling pool, a gently-sloping 180 m² heated swimming pool with a mini water slide for children, a buoy river 50 metres in length, as well as two large aquatic water slides.

Regarding sports facilities, La Bouquerie has a “city stadium” style multi-sports ground, a mini-golf course, an archery range, two badminton courts, a gym, a paintballing field and other facilities. Although some sports activities offered by the campsite's leisure team have an additional charge (yoga, dance, paintballing, baton twirling lessons, depending upon instructor availability), the majority are free. Such free sessions include fitness sessions, aqua dance lessons and water-polo, pétanque or even beach volleyball tournaments. There is plenty to fill the whole day, whilst at the same time youngsters can have enormous fun at the Kids club or the Teenagers club at La Bouquerie campsite. These welcome respectively 4 to 12 year olds and 13 to 17 year olds.
Moreover there is a genuine “leisure park” entirely given over to them. Opened in 2016, this stretches out across an area of more than 2,000 m² of fine golden sand! With its swings, its slide, its sandpit, its spring-loaded games, its mini adventure park, its infernal castle and its 11 slides, as well as its inflatable 78 m² trampoline, this leisure park is a genuine benefit for families with young children!
Lastly, during the high season, holidaymakers in this luxury Dordogne campsite are fortunate to be able to participate in extremely lively evenings! There are concerts, shows, magic, karaoke with the programme varying every evening, for the immense happiness of children and adults alike.
