Quintessential French camping with a wonderfully social atmosphere.

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.

Very calm situated campside, with nice large pool, playground for small children and a tabletennis table. Little restaurant with a bar, and possible to buy bread in the morning.

You can camp on grasspitches but we have also holiday homes and a three-bedroom chalet, plus in summer fully equiped tents with real beds. Twice aweek you can enjoy a special meal made by the owners as smoked trout, a 7 course diner with specialties from the area, or pizza, made in a wood oven.
