The Vézère Valley, the ideal destination for your holiday
In addition to its natural landscapes caressed by water, the Vézère Valley counts no less than 14 Unesco World Heritage sites, including some of the most celebrated treasures that date back to the prehistoric era! In the heart of this region steeped in history, your top-of-the-range campsite awaits you in its lush green setting, providing the perfect base for exploring every corner of the area.
Once you’ve settled into your comfortable well-equipped mobile home or set-up on your tent or campervan pitch, choose your favourite from the many activities ready and waiting to enhance your holiday in the Périgord Noir. All you water babies will love diving head-first into the heated swimming pools of the water park, whilst outdoor sports fans head straight for the basketball or beach volleyball court, or the football pitch.
Visit the Vézère Valley with the family
Your kids are going to have a whale of a time playing explorers in the Vézère Valley! And whilst the riverside scenery is more than worth a visit, the greatest treasures are to be found deeper underground. Let your journey out of time begin in the famous Lascaux cave so justly dubbed the “Prehistoric Sistine Chapel”. This incredible replica of the original cave offers a true immersion in the Palaeolithic period, thanks to its combination of 3D and virtual reality. A fascinating adventure to experience with all the family!
As you continue your expedition further south, discover the largest troglodytic site in Europe at Roque-Saint-Christophe, penetrate deep into the Font-de-Gaume cave near Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil then lose yourself in the medieval world of the troglodyte village of La Madeleine!
Visit the Vézère Valley as a couple
And what if, during your stay in the Périgord, you combined views to delight the eye with something delicious to tempt the taste buds? Beyond their impressive array of archaeological sites, the valleys of the Périgord are also well-known for their gastronomic excellence. So, how about a holiday menu with: foie gras terrine, duck confit, walnut tart... and all the other local specialities to discover and share!
The perfect setting for your foodie experience? Why not head for Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère, one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France? And if all that still leaves you a little time before heading back to the campsite, make the most of every minute with a trip to the sublime gardens of the Manoir d’Eyrignac, near Sarlat!
