Things to do when camping in Dordogne
A region steeped in history, Dordogne can take you back a few hundred years inside the captivating castles of Château de Castelaud-la-Chappelle and Château de Beynac, or thousands of years in the ancient Palaeolithic caves of Lascaux. Lovers of antiquity can enjoy a culture filled camping holiday in Dordogne that will live long in the memory.
Self-confessed foodies can savour sumptuous gastronomy of the department, with truffles, foie gras and walnuts waiting to be washed down with a fine wine. You’ll find lovely local produce in much of the cuisine that will leave you hungry for more.
Outdoor enthusiasts will feel right at home in the Dordogne, where the eponymous river promises adventure at every bend. Enjoy kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding along the gentle flow or pack a picnic before following the meandering walking trails along the riverbank. The dense woodland of Périgord Noir is ideal for cycling, as are the rural roads that link quaint villages.
Along with majestic Châteaux, the Dordogne boasts spectacular botanical beauty in a series of gardens that are simply put, blooming marvellous. Amble through the flowers and flawless hedges of Eyrignac Manor Gardens and Marqueyssac Gardens.
For splendid subterranean sightseeing opportunities, the Vézère Valley will captivate visitors with its prehistoric caves. Breathtaking cave paintings from days gone by will leave you in no doubt as to why Lascaux was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. Other notable sites with a similar theme can be found at Grotte de Font-de-Gaume and Rouffignac Cave.
The towns of Sarlat and Périgueux will wrestle for you attention when it comes to day tripping to a place of cultural significance. Our recommendation… visit both!
As the department rubs shoulders with the lovely Loire Valley and the peaks of the Pyrenees, campers can easily venture further afield in search of new adventures.
