Owners Description

Our private, English owned mobile home is parked on a small municipal campsite beside a mature, spring-fed lake, one of the most beautiful in the Dordogne. The lake boasts two, sandy beaches with safe bathing and plenty of shade.

The two attractive medieval towns of Périgueux and Bergerac are just half-an-hour away.


The mobile home is within 10 metres of the lakeshore (separated by the campsite boundary fence) with views from the windows of lily pads and wildlife - red squirrels in the trees just outside, moorhens, mallards and water voles!


The lake has a high reputation for the quality of its fishing, including trout, carp, etc. The cost of the permits is included in the rental price. Three rods are allowed per person.



The mobile home is newly renovated and tastefully furnished. It is one of only three in this part of the campsite and separated from the others by 20 metres of woodland on each side.


To avoid pollution of the lake, the campsite regulations require guests to use their immaculate and spacious toilet, shower and washing facilities rather than those of the mobile home.


There is one private bedroom (6ft 6in x 9ft 9in) with a full size double bed and wardrobe, and a comfortable sofa bed in the living area converting to a 6ft long double bed. It’s fully equipped for 4 people.


The mobile home has Freesat English TV and free WIFI is available.





Site Information

A short walk away are two sandy, pine-shaded beaches where bathing is perfect for toddlers and adults alike. There are picnic tables beneath the trees and both beaches have children’s play areas. In high season there is supervised bathing. Swimming lessons are available and there is a water chute, free to those camping. Water quality is regularly checked to government standards. Pedalos are available for hire, but otherwise there is a ‘no noise, no pollution’ policy and motorised boats/sports are not allowed.


At the far end of the lake is a relaxed bar/restaurant, La Guinguette, with a great atmosphere and live music twice a week (don’t worry, it’s far enough away for the sound not to trouble you on the campsite!) Here one can find veggie and vegan food if desired - normally impossible to find in rural France.


Altogether, an ideal spot for nature lovers, swimmers, fishermen and kids!


The campsite shop has basic provisions, but the small market town of Vergt, with all shops, restaurants and medical facilities, is only 5 minutes away by car. Friday mornings there is a bustling market where you can buy fresh produce, taste local cheeses or treat yourself to something from a colourful north African stall.


Local Area

Vergt is the centre of an authentic French rural community. The summer months see regular traditional festivals, such the Strawberry Fête (Vergt is the centre of French strawberry cultivation), where all the local villages contribute to producing the biggest – and tastiest – strawberry tart you’ve ever seen!


When you’re bored with swimming, sunbathing, or propping up the bar, there are plenty of other things to do!


Walking: The French are great randonneurs (walkers) and there are well-marked and maintained country walks everywhere.


Cycling: Cycles are available for hire from the campsite.


Riding: There are stables close by for both lessons and hacking.


Canoeing: The superb Vézère, Dordogne and Isle rivers and their valleys are wonderful to explore by canoe. Rent one for a short descent, or take a picnic and make a day of it.


Sightseeing: You can visit the beautiful Vézère and Dordogne valleys with their troglodyte caves and cave paintings (including world famous Lascaux) and their numerous castles, chateaux and bastide towns.


Eating Out: Eat inexpensively and gastronomically at a wide variety of restaurants.


Wine Tasting: Taste and buy wines in the Bergerac vineyards.
