The Owner Says
Our restaurant (La Parenthèse) offers quality, seasonal cuisine with fresh, local products. It is open to all those who wish to treat themselves to a culinary break, whether or not you stay at the campsite. You will enjoy an exceptional setting surrounded by nature, quiet and for the happiness of children, a playground has been installed opposite the restaurant. Adults will not be leftover with the petanque area just next to it. You will fall under the charm of this old renovated barn and its romantic and chic decoration.
The Bus, an old bus transformed into a snack bar, is open every day from 8:30 am to 7 pm. In the morning, you (or your children!) can pick up pastries and bread ordered the day before for breakfast and enjoy a nice coffee by the pool. Throughout the day, you can have a fresh beer by the pool, eat a panini, enjoy a sugar pancake.
La Paillotte, this small wooden hut installed on the sand by the lake gives a seaside air to your evening .. to the delight of children. A magical place offering a magnificent sunset over the lake. Take away, on the pontoon of the lake or on the beach, take advantage of these beautiful summer evenings to stroll by tasting one of these excellent pizzas accompanied by a glass of chilled rosé. Every Tuesday, unforgettable evening, fried mussels with campfire on the beach and marshmallows on fire .. the sticks are to be taken directly from the surrounding trees .. always a moment of pleasure for young and older one, great moments that remain in our memories….

The nearest town of any real interest is beautiful Bergerac, which takes its name from the celebrated wordsmith with the oversized proboscis. You can see a statue of him in the old town; that is if you’re not too busy stocking up on wine in one of a clutch of excellent wine-sellers. Red is the colour to go for here. The region is famous for its vino and there are great deals to be had. The old town undulates through a series of sun-dappled courtyards to the river and it makes for a lovely morning visit, wandering through the narrow alleys and getting lost. Closer to home there are a number of fortified medieval villages (bastides) including Villeréal, Monflanquin, and Monpazier, all with arcaded squares and vibrantly French with weekend markets selling everything from foie gras to local produce. Keep an eye out, too, for vide greniers (translates as ‘empty the attic’), France’s version of a car boot sale. You never know, you might just pick up something interesting. Come August, the towns recall their medieval past with the costumed festivals of the Vallée du Dropt. If you fancy a wine dégustation in a beautiful historic setting, head to Château de Monbazillac (0033 5 53 63 65 00) to try their sweet white wine. There’s also an 18-hole golf course right next to the campsite.
Food & Drink
We are surrounded by great places, great restaurant managed by awesome people:
Etincelles (00 33 5 53 74 08 79) in nearby Ste-Sabine-Born village has a Michelin star and is celebrated for its authentic French cooking. Nord/sud or L'Hotel de l'Europe & Maggies Café in Villeréal. La Bassivière restaurant an authentic restaurant in an old bar. Le Prince Noir or L'effet Maison in Monflanquin. To be honest, though, La Parenthèse restaurant has a terrific menu and we have not talked about the food truck by the pool and the Paillotte next to the lake yet, so will you be going out for dinner?!
