Atur, the ideal holiday destination
With the mellow life-style and gentle pace so typical of the Dordogne, Atur makes an amazing holiday destination. Here nature is everywhere you look, offering fabulous trips out and about along its innumerable hiking trails and cycle tracks. Nearby lies Périgueux, pearl of the Périgord, waiting to reveal its most gorgeous treasures. Prepare for a true feast for the eyes!
Nestling in the heart of their lush green setting, stay in the comfort of our fully-equipped mobile homes or get truly close to nature in a tent, caravan or campervan. Whilst the kids have a whale of a time in the free mini clubs, you can relax in the heated swimming pools of the vast water park, enjoy the sports grounds and activities available throughout the day, or set off to explore the surrounding area. Come camping with Sandaya; there’s no better way to relax, reconnect and revitalise!

Travel down the river Isle in Périgueux or the Dronne in Brantôme, or leisurely wander the Dordogne and Vézère valleys, the possibilities are endless.
