The Owner Says

The spacious Bali Lodge is a comfortable wooden cabin with a terrace and plenty of inside space including a living room and two separate bedrooms. It can sleep up to five people. It is an excellent choice out of the high season.

One of the bedrooms has a king-size bed, the second room has three singles (one a bunk). Bed linen is available to hire, duvets and pillows are provided. It also has a shower and separate toilet, a kitchen, fridge, hot water and is stocked for five people.With additional fees you can use the washing machines, dryers, and a washing corner for your linen, together with full ironing facilities.

The site has a bar with a computer corner and a restaurant with a terrace, a shop with a full range of essentials.

The local bakery provides fresh baguettes and other bread and fresh baked croissants (reserve before 6:00 pm the day before)

There is a swimming pool on the campsite which open from 1st of June till the 15th of September and there are plenty of activities including ping-pong table, basket ball hoop, chess, draughts and table football for everyone's enjoyment.

The stream is one of the major attractions of the site. Fishing, playing with model boats paddling or building a dam is a great way to cool down for children and adults. Please remember your children should never be left unattended by either the stream or the swimming pool for their safety.

Activities

A 1 hour drive away is the exquisite setting of Rocamadour. For pilgrims, Rocamadour's importance lies with the 'Shrine of Our Lady', a complex of religious structures centered on a statue of the Virgin Mary and the tomb of an ancient saint. Tourists come here for its religious interest, historical importance, wonderful architecture, but most of all, for the spectacular views, as Rocamadour is situated atop a rocky plateau overlooking the Alzou Valley. Not far from Rocamadour, The Gouffre de Padirac (0033 565 336 456) is a large system of caves. You descend down a long stairway or elevator, and then take a boat on the river, which flows through the cave. There is a lake 30 minutes away with a restaurant, playground and two water slides, or for an animal encounter head to the Deer Valley in Junhac (0033 471 492 968), where you can ride the small train.
