The Owner Says

La Chatonniere is situated in a peaceful spot in the Dordogne, not far from the Limousin border. The campsite is a quiet haven, with no noisy distractions such as bars or pools: the site enjoys a 'back to nature' ethos where the great outdoors and river are entertainment enough. A child-friendly sandy beach gives access to the river which runs along the site, allowing children and adults to swim and splash around in the sun. You can mess about on the river in rowing boats or build campfires on the river banks from wood gathered from the nearby forest. An outdoor play area with a badminton field, volley ball field and 'jeu de boules' can also be enjoyed. Don't forget to try out one of the nature trails, which are all well sign-posted, or for those that prefer exploring on two wheels, mountain bikes can also be hired at the campsite.
The 'Standard' pitches have a lovely grassy spot benefitting from a mix of shade and sun, with the shower block and other facilities not far away.A daily bread service is also available on site, together with pizza and chips to take away back to your tent or ice creams to cool you down after those hot sunny days by the river!
Local shops, restaurants and bars can all be found within walking distance in the local village of Jumilhac-le-Grand. A horse riding centre and tennis court are also nearby.
Campfires, river swimming, tranquility and plenty of space - a stay at La Chatonniere will leave you feeling relaxed, recharged and wanting to come back!

About Camping La Chatonnière

A delightful campsite with 'green' status for its beautiful, riverside location in the Dordogne close to the Limousin

The Owner Says

The Chatonnière is a small green campsite on the banks of a little river with its own sandy beach. We rent out mobile homes, tents, safari tents and campsites. We opened in the Dordogne in 1992.

Our camp site 3 stars campsite is situated in a peaceful section of the Dordogne not far from the Limousin border. Because this area is very special concerning the landscape and nature it obtained the status of nature reserve. The name of this new nature reserve became: “Parc naturel regional Perigord-Limousin” and is well known across the country. For peace, tranquility and the chance to truly enjoy the flora and fauna of France, there are few finer places to be.

Camp site “La Chatonniere” is situated within walking distance of the village Jumilhac-le Grand (1300 residents), there you will find all the facilities such as shops for your daily groceries, a swimming pool, a horse-riding centre, a tennis court and restaurants. The impressive castle of Jumilhac-le-Grand is a part of the castle route of Richard coeur de Lion, a renowned route that takes in some of the best châteaux in all of France.

Our terraced campsite is situated in a green valley on the banks of the River Isle. On the highest terrace are the “standard” and car-free places. On the lowest terrace are the places (bellevue) with a direct view of the river and the sandy beach. The pitches are separated by bushes and, on every place, there are trees to provide shade (though there is always a sunny spot to find).
