A lovely sight not far from Sarlat & the heart of the Dordogne. The site is small, but this is a good thing. Swimming pools, with lots of new decking over several layers looked over the lake and had a bar facility, but the 2 pools (one in door) did get crowded for several hours each day. Pools were shallow at 1.3m. Slides were quite good. And overall look of the pools/bar area was very smart & shade was available by the bar.

Most nights the bar area had music/entertainment. There was a little shop area, which had the basics to tide you over till your big shop in town.

The Take away ( ordered at the bar) was very good & pizzas were delicious.

Tennis court was free & could be booked in the morning before it became the football pitch.

The games room was small, but would keep a few children happy.

The site is Homair & there were a number of organised activities each day - tended to attract the French guests.

No bike hire & site too hilly for go-karts hire.

The new pool complex was fantastic. Lovely quiet park but everyone very friendly. Lovely meal at the bar. Only drawback was lack of shopping - very small "shop" and not able to buy bread unless pre-ordered. As nearest shops were a 4 mile drive this was not ideal!

Park was a little remote which was a positive for us but could put some off as you need a car. The rep on site was excellent and the facilities were good but not outstanding.
For us the location was brilliant as we wanted to be away peace and quiet but close enough to Sarlat with all its amenities.

A nice peaceful site, tucked away but just a 10 minute drive from Sarlat.

The shower block was one of the cleanest we have seen in France, non-stop hot water, great pressure showers and good value washing facilities - €4 a load for a washing machine.

The Al Fresco staff were good, as was the location.

However we found the resort staff were apathetic and indifferent, bar and evening facilities were limited and lacklustre.

The accommodation was OK although the beds were particularly uncomfortable, and the WIFI service at the resort was poor (slow and intermittent)
