In the heart of the Dordogne Valley, the small village of Saint Martial de Nabirat and the Le Carbonnier campsite accommodate you in excellent conditions. Maintained with care, peaceful and relaxing, this establishment rated 4 star, has a lake and a superb water park, for a dream family holiday in the fabulous Périgord Noir (Black Périgord)…
A campsite with a fishing lake
A high-end campsite located just a stone's throw from the village of Saint Martial de Nabirat, around ten kilometres from the Dordogne river and the multiple exceptional castles and walled towns dotted across its valley, Le Carbonnier opens its magnificent campsite both wooded and lush, for you. Amidst the site there is a delightful lake which sits imposingly, enjoyed by holidaymakers. Such holidaymakers can indulge in canoeing or even fishing.
On-site, you can choose between verdant pitches and spacious holiday rentals. These are well-equipped mobile homes able to accommodate between 2 to 12 people, in the case of the largest of them! They all have a terrace to enjoy meals in the open air, a fitted kitchen and one or more bedrooms and bathrooms.
The pitches of this 4-star campsite, in the Dordogne region, enable you to get closer to nature. You will indeed be able to pitch your tent, or set up your caravan, converted van or your camper on lawned, wooded pitches, which are thus shaded or semi-shaded. Sanitary blocks adapted to persons with reduced mobility, as well as children, are perfectly spread out in the heart of these plots.
A dream water park and multiple games
Amongst the many services on the Le Carbonnier campsite, the catering area with its bar, pizzeria, snack bar and takeaway, as well as the bakery and grocery, are popular with holidaymakers. They do not thus need to leave the campsite to buy essentials, or enjoy a good meal.
The Le Carbonnier campsite water park is, without doubt, one of its best attractions. Holidaymakers can swim there in no less than 2 large outdoor swimming pools and an indoor heated swimming pool. The very young can make the most of the delights of water in a heated paddling pool, and through a water playground, equipped with numerous water games. Lastly, the water slides with their landing pool complete the complex.
Besides the water park and the leisure lake to do fishing or canoeing, this Dordogne campsite also has a mini-golf course, a beach volleyball court and a football pitch, an area for playing boules and a large outdoor playground with a children’s inflatable structure. A mini-club, activities and entertainment are offered here in the high season, with in particular aquaerobics sessions, sports tournaments, themed evenings, pool parties, concerts, etc.
Le Périgord, a leading tourist destination
Holidaymakers staying on the Le Carbonnier campsite, make the most of its geographical location to go off to explore the Périgord Noir (Black Périgord), one of the loveliest tourist areas of the Dordogne. Thus upon going out of Saint Martial de Nabirat, there is no shortage of tourist attractions. Domme, a renowned medieval walled village, today bearing the designation “Les Plus Beaux Villages de France” (one of the loveliest villages in France), is less than 10 kilometres from the campsite.
Hardly much further, the fortress of Castelnaud la Chapelle is a must-see. An imposing military citadel overlooking the Dordogne Valley. Behind its high walls, it today houses a museum of warfare in the Middle Ages, including siege engines (the Musée de la Guerre au Moyen Âge). Below flows the river, that you can go down by canoe. For a half-day or a full day, hirers in the region offer multiple routes, as much on the Dordogne as the Vézère.
The capital of the Périgord Noir, Sarlat la Canéda is around 20 kilometres from Le Carbonnier. Go around its medieval alleyways, stroll through the stalls of its producer markets, discover a unique way of life and gastronomy, this town of Art and History (with the label “Villes et Pays d’Art et d’Histoire”) has so much to offer! Lastly, a visit to the Dordogne is not complete without going to the Grottes de Lascaux (Lascaux caves), masterpieces of cave art.
