The Owner Says

This uber spacious and beautifully decorated canvas and timber tent with a chandelier, wooden flooring, drapes and original 'vintage french' decor, complete with fresh flowers is ideally suited for families or groups of up to six people, wanting the real 'glam' factor when it comes to glamping.
Set either within the 'meadow' or 'woodland' section of the campsite, with views over wild meadows and  trees, you can live the outdoor life without compromising on home comforts. A spacious living area with ample seating and dining space, opens out onto a large terrace - the perfect space for al fresco dining, or kicking back and relaxing within the deck chairs. There are six single beds within the sleeping area of the tent, the parents area is separated by a canvas drape, whilst this sleeping part of the tent is separated from the main living area with drapes, wooden slatted room divider and curtains. The kitchen area is kitted out with a gas hob, kitchen block, fridge, utensils and kitchenware and a kettle, there are also chest of drawers and sideboards. Water points are never far away, as are the two shower blocks, with baby areas, washing machines and dryers. There is also free wifi within the communal areas.

Pets are permitted, dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and are prohibited from swimming pool areas and in food shops. Vaccination certificates must be up-to-date for all pets. Read the campsite terms and let us know if you bring it with you!

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 on site facilities are vast at La Parenthèse, with a black granite swimming pool, open daily from 8.30am until 07.30pm. A separate kiddie pool, a sandy beach on the banks of the lake, a pontoon from which you can fish or just gaze up at the starry sky. Swings, climbing frames, pétanque, ping Pong, volley ball, football pitches or the tennis court will keep you active!

It's well worth exploring the surrounding area, as this part of France is steeped in history and culture. Medieval villages and bastides of Villeréal/ Monflanquin are just over 5 minutes drive from the campsite, and offer wonderful local markets. The medieval festival in Monflanquin is well worth a visit during August, with street processions, jousting, horse parades to name but a few things on show. Monpazier is rich in medieval architecture, conveniently located between Sarlat and Bergerac, whilst the Chateau de Gavaudun 40m high on a rocky cliff, has themed days during the summer months, to bring to life the medieval experience for young and old to enjoy! Do not forget to stop at the tree climbing park in Lacapelle Biron where the non climbers will appreciate the natural swimming pool.

After all that exploring, you will no doubt savour your lay back moment on site with a glass of something tasty, either pool side or in the comfort of your very own deck chair. Let the laid-back atmosphere seep in, simply unwind and relax, you are on holiday after all...

Activities

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?!
