Family-friendly camping in the heart of the Périgord Noir and a five-minute walk from the magnificent River Dore

You can’t get more quintessentially French than a Tuesday night at Camping Le Mondou in the height of summer. The low sun casts long, dappled fingers of shade across the boules court as children practice their throwing, back-spinning the metal balls into the sand. Then the adults take over; maestros of the sport. They’re all vying for the traditional Tuesday night prize – a bottle of excellent local vino for the parents and a good old ice-cream for the kids.

Tuesday night’s ‘concours de boules’ is precisely the sort of fun and friendly scene that sums up the style of camping at this relatively small, Dordogne campsite. Despite a decent heap of facilities, it’s still a far cry from the regimented holiday parks that France is so famous for and the thoroughly sociable feel of it all makes it ideal for families hoping for a space where kids can run around and make friends, whatever their nationality.

The site itself is split into a figure of eight type shape, with a top and bottom section. The upper part is centered around the outdoor swimming pool and a small restaurant with a terrace, while the lower field is where the slightly quieter spots are spread, broken up by mature trees and shrubs. As you’d expect, it’s all pretty casual, with the pitches varying in size slightly depending on how the bushes and trees have grown. All have electricity though and there’s plenty of space for every camper.

The location is one of the real highlights. It takes less than five minutes to walk to the riverside. The local stretch is called the Dore and only later becomes the Dordogne after joining a second river, the Dogne. You can hire bikes from the campsite to pedal your way along the scenic riverside routes or join one of the sights regularly organised canoe trips to drift downstream – the best and most relaxing way to take in the sights. Caves, castles and medieval villages are all on show, providing that quintessentially French finish to this campsite.

Family-friendly camping in the heart of the Périgord Noir and a five-minute walk from the magnificent River Dore. Camping Le Mondou is a fine spot for you and your family to spent your holidays and an excellent base for many landmarks – an ideal holiday for the whole family to enjoy. There is a restaurant for cosy evenings, a snack bar during the day and a licensed bar. For family fun, campers can enjoy the free use of a swimming pool, a playground for children and, in the surrounding area, a host of activities that make the Dordogne one of the most popular holiday destinations in all of France. Test your limits, whether it's survival at Indian Forest, canoeing on the Dordogne River, perhaps even paragliding for those who dare! During the flight, you'll enjoy a fantastic view over the Dordogne area should you take on the challenge (enquire for further details; this is only possible with an appointment and with good weather). Back on solid ground, discover the beautiful Dordogne region by car or on foot, with all the old places en villages like Sarlat, Rocamadour, Dome, Beignac, Collonges la Rouge and more to explore, each with their castles, gardens and caves.
