Grassy camping pitch, with shade provided by mature trees

The Owner Says

These grassy pitches are great for all the family, varying between 80 to 150 m². All sites have the possibility of having an electric hook up - please choose this as an additional extra when booking if required, and there are a number of water points scattered around the site, making it easy to fill your kettle or pans! The sanitary blocks are a short stroll away, with functional and clean facilities.
The campsite is divided into a top and bottom section. In the upper part is a swimming pool with a snack bar restaurant, where there are a number of pitches situated around the pool, making it easy to keep an eye on the children. Alternatively some pitches have views of the medieval castle, or views over the Dordogne Valley. The lower part of the campsite is the quieter end of the site, where you can kick back and relax. In the morning, the birds will join you for breakfast - sometimes eating out of your hand.
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. With is variety of facilities 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 nice large pool, playground for small children and a table tennis table will ensure that the little ones are entertained. There is a little restaurant with a bar on site, and it is possible to buy bread in the morning.
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 sites 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.

About Camping Le Mondou

Suitable For

Tents, campervans, caravans, families, couples, pets (except in the chalets) – yes. Tandem axel vehicles – no.

Nearby

Once a week the campsite organises canoeing on the Dordogne – highly recommended – and can also help you with guided cycle routes if you like. Bikes are available to rent onsite if necessary. Sarlat, Domme, Beignac and Rocamadour are all within easy driving distance and well worth a ramble of the cobbled streets or visit the chateaux at Fenelon (05 53 29 81 45) and Castelnaud (05 53 31 30 00). Perhaps the most spectacular, however, is a visit to the caves of Gouffre de Padirac (05 65 33 64 56) just under an hour away. One of the most visited natural attractions in France, this ginormous chasm is up to 103m deep and descended by visitors in a lift and lower staircase. Once underground you can explore the cave by foot and in a tiny boat, following the subterranean river system. It's truly extraordinary and well worth the drive.

Food & Drink

There is an on-site restaurant serving food every evening. Twice a week they have special meals like smoked trout, mussels and regional dishes and, on Friday, homemade pizzas from the a wood oven. They sometimes go as far as serving the seven-course local meal! There is also a licensed bar. In the village there are also several small restaurants and a bar – Le Roi Carotte (05 53 29 82 33), translating directly as 'the King Carrot', is a fantastic restaurant for fresh food straight from the surrounding garden. It’s within easy walking distance (around 15 minutes) of the campsite.
