Camping Le Port de Limeuil, 24480 Alles sur Dordogne, Tel 0553632976,

To find site:- From the D25 at Le Buisson de Cadouin take the D51 towards Le Bugue (Perigueux). Turn left onto D51 to Limeuil, signed to campsite. On approach to Limeuil turn left over Dordogne River bridge and site on right in about 300 metres. Its best not to approach the site from the Alles sur Dordogne direction as you have to tow a longer distance along narrow roads.

Camping Le Port de Limeuil has a lovely situation right on the Dordogne River opposite the village of Limeuil and where the Vézère joins the Dordogne. The site has some magnificent mature trees, almost park like in character, which provides a lot of shade but could make getting a satellite signal difficult. Later in the year you might want to select a pitch with a more open aspect to appreciate the warmth of any sunshine. There are around 100 pitches which in the main are on low terraces facing towards the river. They are mainly of a good size and some generous. Electrics around the site vary with a mix of Continental 2 pin sockets and the more modern CEE17 standard blue Euro connector. Ampage also varies between 5 and 10 amps. Even on the same bollard there can be 6 and 10 amp rated connectors. Water points are provided in good numbers. There are some statics and tour operators on site. At Reception is a small shop selling essentials and bread, there is also a bar, both open throughout the season, and in the main season there is a takeaway. Across from Reception is a nice swimming pool complex. Children are well catered for with a playground and games room. The site has a free WiFi point near the bar, although I managed to pick up a good signal at the caravan some 100 metres away. This campsite accepts the ACSI Card in the low season which offers particularly good value. Date of visit late September 2010.

From the site you are not more than 25 miles away from most of the Dordogne tourist attractions and many are nearer. There is a canoe hire station adjacent to the campsite. The nearest shopping and fuel is at the Intermarche in La Bugue about 4 miles away.
