Quiet and shady camping in the heart of the Dronne Valley

There’s something special about Camping du Bas Meygnaud. Normally if you mention a campsite in France with a pool, on-site restaurant, bike rental, badminton court and a pair of mobile homes to rent your head begins to swim with the sound of screaming children and the clapping bingo-wings of morning aqua-aerobics sessions. However Camping du Bas Meygnaud could not be further away from this commercial camping fanfare.

Run by potentially the friendliest hosts on the continent and poised in countryside so sun-floweringly typical of rural France, this is the traditional family camping that everyone this side of the channel is searching for. A blanket of tall pine trees casts a cooling cover of shade over half of the campsite, the skinny trunks reaching high above, spilling their shadows across the grass pitches underneath. This brown and green scene is given colour by the glorious summer sun splintering through the canopy, as well as, of course, the peppering of colourful family tents. Out in the open there is ample camping space away from the trees, ideal for suntan searches and those wanting to camp closest to the amenities – modern, clean and well equipped for families with the littlest of campers.

The real pleasures here, though, come in the homely little touches that give Camping Du Bas Meygnaud that friendly local feel. An organic herb garden looks, at first glance, a little over grown but venture closer and you'll find a treasure trove of produce waiting to be plucked and thrown into your evening meal. The busy worker bees that to and fro from the vegetables in flower are also on your side, stockpiling their goods in the beehive that provides honey to campers with a sweet tooth. Some of this produce can be brought in the small grocery shop by reception. Or, if you fancy the night off, enjoy some tasty slap-up regional food and wood-fired pizzas in the campsite’s restaurant.

Though the facilities are uncommercial, there's still plenty to make active campers feel thoroughly at home. The outdoor pool is a pleasure in the heat of midday, but hiring a bike and cycling the four kilometers to Brantôme – a wonderfully beautiful little town with excellent eateries and ice-cream to cool you down – is far more rewarding. When you return to the campsite the pool will still be waiting and all the more satisfying as a result.

The campsite owner says

Our campsite is situated in the heart of the Dronne Valley. Brantôme "The venise of the Périgord" is just 4km away. Camping du Bas Meygnaud is quiet and shady with 50 pitches. We promote respect for both the environment and fellow campers.

From the campsite there are several routes and pathways for cycling and walking. Forests, hills, lakes, rivers and rocks provide a lot of natural activities. Locally there is plenty to do: You can visit the botanic garden of Brantôme, Alaije; there is a truffel museum in Sorges, and several water mills in the area where you can learn how to make flour and walnut oil; Brantôme "la Venise de Périgord" has a Benedictine abbey; and, of course, there are the famous caves of Lascaux.

At the campsite you will also find bike rental, a swimmingpool, a playground, a volleyball court, badminton and table tennis, plus a boules pitch.
