The park was very pleasant. The pitches were large and gave the overall feeling of spaciousness.

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)

Top pool far too cold which made the lower pool extremely busy. The entertainment guy was excellent and really made the kids disco fun. Went to get takeaway one night at 8.30 and got turned away no reason given! But lovely site and location.

The pools are small but enough for the site. There could be more sun loungers round the pool. Safety is not an issue, the site is kept clean and tidy. The mobile homes are in good condition and have everything you need. There were some activities for kids, usually 1 per day in the pool, and 1 per day on the sports sections.

Lovely park, more seating around the swimming pool is needed. We only visited the pool once this visit, as we could not find any seating . It's only down side . Everything else was very good.
