Camping Le Ch’timi, La Roque, F-46700 Touzac, Tel 0563565236

To Find Site:- From Cahors take D811 in the direction of Fumel. In about 35 kms in Duravel turn left at roundabout in town to Vire-sur-Lot. After crossing narrow river bridge turn right at road junction onto D8 signed for Touzac. The site is just before you get to Touzac and is signed on the right. (It might be worth switching off any sat navs for the final stretch as its likely to take you down some unsuitable roads)

Camping Le Ch’timi is situated high above the River Lot, although there is access from the site. It is owned by a lovely Dutch family who, of course, speak excellent English. It is quite Park like in appearance with many mature trees. The 80 touring  pitches are on grass and are of a good size. The nature of the site which slopes down from reception to the entrance means there will be some need to level units and some pitches are more level than others. Electric connections are rated at 6amps and accept CEE17 European blue connectors. Water points are dotted frequently around the campsite. The nice quality toilet block is next to reception. It contains seated toilets, paper is provided but not in the cubicles. There is a separate disabled toilet next the laundry room on another part of the site. On the other side of reception is a bar/restaurant are which has both indoor and outside seating. We enjoyed our meal at the restaurant which was well presented and good value.  The site has a rather nice swimming area just in front of reception. Children are well catered for with a playground for small ones and table tennis and volley ball for the older ones. Reception stocks a few essentials, including fresh milk and bread can be ordered the day before. Free WiFi is available, officially in the bar area but I was able to pick it up on my pitch with a signal booster. The D8 road runs along one side of the campsite so there is a little traffic noise at certain times of day but we did not find it overly intrusive. During the low season the site accepts the ACSI discount card and the site can be booked by the Caravan Club ABS service. We found this campsite quite charming as we did the owners and for those looking for a relaxing and peaceful it is well worth considering.

The Lot Valley perhaps plays second fiddle to the Dordogne but that is a shame as it has it’s own charm. It is perhaps best suited to those with their own transport although for the fit there are cycling opportunities. There is access directly to the river from the campsite but this is down a long steep set of steps, although we did not investigate there is a sign to a canoe station on the banks of the river. For shopping there are supermarkets at Fumel, Puy L’Eveque and Prayssac.
