Up until 1 July restaurant and take away closed at 9pm. We arrived around this time and there was nothing open to get food. We did ask and they kindly made us something.

No activities until 1 July and even then they weren't great.

No life guard around pool again until after 1 July.

Pools were great and my girls had a great time on the crazy river with their inflatables.

Great overall park! We loved it. Stayed in Verdi lounge - stunning - and Vic the Alfresco rep was amazingly friendly. We thought the home was new when we arrived as she'd cleaned it so well. The park itself is beautiful and the surrounding area - Dordogne - is picture perfect. We unfortunately had unseasonably terrible weather but had a fantastic time despite this

We visited early in the season - poor weather prevented us trying facilities or they had not commenced as it was early season. Therefore unable to give a high score as not experienced. We would definitely go back to this site - Camp staff were very friendly and helpful and Al Fresco staff were exceptional - nothing was too much trouble, with them staying late as we did not arrive until after 10PM

The accommodation is extremely good the site has a lot of activities although the pool was rather cold. The rep was very nice and enthusiastic and went out of her way to help if she could

An excellent 1st visit to France and it was fabulous.
Three children, two adults and lots of fun on the tennis courts, swimming pools and in the surrounding areas. Beautiful caves to exlpore, horseriding, walking, vintage theme park was splendid - our family ticket allowed us to return for free on another day and we did it was so much fun. The old fairground rides and authentic olive oil pressing, flour mill, candle making, woodturning and ceramics and lots of other activities.
We will be back!
