I am thinking about going to the Dordogne at the beginning of July with my 3 year old. It will be our first holiday abroad with our son, so I'm desparately trying to make it a good one!!
There doesn't seem much difference between Eurocamp, KeyCamp & Canvas Holidays - does anyone have any views on which is best?
I've been looking at their sites and I am thinking of either Les Hauts des Ratebouts (Belves), La Palombiere (Sarlat), Le Moulin de la Pique (Belves) or St Avit Loisirs (Le Bugue). Has anyone heard any good or bad reviews for any of these sites/places?
I'm new to this so all advice is very welcome!
as for company i would reccomend Eurocamp above the other two , i have heard some bad reports about Keycamp and Canvas from freinds, but Eurocamp nothing at all , and to just clarify that Eurocamp were originally based and started up in Knutsford cheshire , which is my home town and like a lot of people in Knutsford my parents used them and lots of schoolfreinds and there families used tehm and as i said never a bad word
only prob was when they had really just got going my parents and i happened to pitch our tourer in a site next to a eurocamp site in teh south of france , it was surreal in everyone taht walked past the entrance to our site from teh eurocamp site we knew , to me and my sister it was like being at school , thankfully that has changed now they have got bigger
You will have a great time - all the local sites, dishes and wines! Do remember however that it gets VERY hot, and you will need to think about shade for your pitch, sun creams, mossie creams, plenty of water to drink and a hat for everyone, with good neck protection!!!! (So different from the current weather!)
Have a lovely time!
The dorgdone is stunning and yes very hot. last year we had 2 days of rain not bad out of 14!!
the rest of the time it was very hot (high 30's) so be prepared. anywhere around Sarlat is stunning and youy right in the heart of The Dorgdone...
Lots of Chatau's to visit and lots of history...Can't wait to go back again this year and with Eurocamp again...
In the end we were spoilt for choice with the campsites/villages but figured we've got many years ahead to try them all out...!
