Coming up to this site on dirt tracks churned up by tractors that move politely aside to let you though, the working rural reality of this region is clear. Passing rows of grape vines on the way to the site you then have to pass more on the way to your pitch- this campsite grows enough armagnac grapes in its backyard to produce around 20,000 bottles a year, and they have a cellar to prove it. On the covered communal terrace the owners of this camp serve a home made dinner three times a week for their guests, accompanied by their own wines. Nice.

A very special campsite. Really idyllic orchard setting with views of the local village church spire through the trees. Tucked away in an area that has loads to see and do but is off the beaten track. We loved the tranquility and the lively warm welcome
