It's understandable to be a bit confused about this site – the inspiration for its design came from the classic African safari camps, in particular one from Tanzania, all transported to the charming, medieval town dotted, green region of the Dordogne. The 20 Tanzanian desert numbers, with their spring beds and fresh linen, are arranged amongst an elm forest, and the whole 20 hectare campsite spreads out from there, with a fishing lake, bar, a pool and tennis court, and pitches for another 130 tents or motorhomes.

Bit and ruins of medieval villages and bastides are littered though this region, and the campsite is close to Villeréal, Monflanquin and Monpazier. The area is also known for wine making and paper mills, which can be quite pretty.
