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
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. To be honest, though, the campsite restaurant has a terrific menu.
