Les Truffières de Dordogne, a holiday camping club par excellence in the Dordogne
Located 13 kilometres north of Sarlat la Canéda, a town with the Ville d’Art et d’Histoire designation (reflecting its heritage, architecture and living environment), the capital of the Périgord Noir area and the truffle, Les Truffières de Dordogne is one of the loveliest camping clubs in the Dordogne department. Rated 5-star, this campsite has sound arguments to appeal to holidaymakers, starting with its surroundings, facilities and a range of services. Holidaymakers will not fail to be moved!
Idyllic surroundings for a relaxing holiday
Halfway between Sarlat and Montignac Lascaux, the Les Truffières de Dordogne campsite is located in the village of Saint-Geniès, 850 metres from the village. Its historic centre, with its Romanesque church, castle and stone houses with traditional lauze schist-tile roofs creates one of the loveliest architectural groupings in the Périgord.
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 Les Truffières de Dordogne campsite, the pitches and holiday rentals are located beyond this area, 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. Amongst these, we should mention the Les Truffières de Dordogne restaurant, whose traditional and regional cuisine 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 hunger pangs, go to the Les Truffières de Dordogne snack bar. In addition to 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 and games library as well as a billiards room.
Amongst the other services on offer, there is in particular, a games room equipped with arcade games and pinball machines, a grocery meeting everyday basic needs including the sale of bread and sweet breads and buns, such as brioches, croissants and pains au chocolat cooked on-site. There is a launderette, indeed a launderette with the latest generation equipment, and also other facilities.
At the heart of the 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 water park on Les Truffières de Dordogne, one of the best in the Dordogne, remains the most successful campsite facility. With an impressive surface 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 water slides. Also note that around the pools, there are numerous sunbeds for those who love sunbathing.
Regarding sports facilities, Les Truffières de Dordogne has a “city stadium” style multi-sports ground, mini-golf course, archery range, two badminton courts, gym, paintballing site and other facilities. Although some sports activities offered by the campsite's activity team have an additional charge (yoga, dance, paintballing, baton twirling lessons, depending upon instructor availability), the majority are free. The latter include fitness sessions, aqua-dance classes and water polo, pétanque or even beach volleyball tournaments. There is plenty to keep you busy all throughout the day, whilst at the same time youngsters can have a whale of a time at the Children’s club or the Teens club on the Les Truffières de Dordogne campsite. These welcome respectively those aged 4 to 12 and 13 to 17.
Moreover there is a genuine “leisure park” entirely given over to them. This stretches out across a surface area of more than 2,000 m² of fine sands! 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.
