Camping Chateau Le Verdoyer, F24470 Champs Romain, Tel  0553569464

To Find Site:- From Chalus on N21, take D6 bis, this later becomes the D 85,  towards Nontron. After about 20 kms turn left onto D96, signed to campsite and Chateau Le Verdoyer is 2 kms down this road.

This campsite is in the grounds of a Chateau but donít imagine neat grass lawns at Le Verdoyer. It is a rather rustic campsite with pitches set amongst mature trees and the site is rather undulating and most pitches are terraced, accessed mainly by tarmac roads although there are some rough tracks to some pitches. There seem to be more pitches occupied by tents, statics and chalets than available for touring units.  Pitches are generally of a good size although some are long and narrow rather than square. Many have access to their own water supply and most have a grey water drain point. Electric points are rated at a useful 10 amps but most are via Continental 2 pin plugs and it might be best to check for reverse polarity. The toilet blocks are better on the inside than they look from the outside with seated pedestal toilets with paper provided. They seem to have better than average facilities for smaller children. Near the entrance is a nice swimming pool complex including a slide. The reception area also has a shop and a bar, bread can be ordered the day before. In the Chateau is the campsite restaurant. There are a couple of fishing lakes within the site boundaries. Site wide WiFi is available at an additional charge. The site accepts Camping Cheques in the low season. This is certainly a peaceful site on the autumn for anyone wanting to chill out with some nice views out over the surrounding countryside.

The campsite is a little remote although there are opportunities for walks and cycle rides from the site. For longer excursions Limoges, to the north is about 30 miles away. Perhaps not for everyone but the Martyrís Village of Oradour sur Glane is about 40 miles from the site. The nearest shopping is in St Pardoux le Riviere which is about 4 miles from the site. There are large supermarkets in Nontron about 10 miles away.
