Le Paradis Holiday Park

In France’s beautiful Dordogne region this small park really does have an excellent reputation. It’s perfectly located to be a base for discovering the natural beauty of the Dordogne region on walking and cycling holidays. It’s also a great place for those looking for a canoeing holiday. There is a friendly reception where they speak French, English, Dutch, Spanish, German, which shows the wide appeal of the site. They are internet and WiFi facilities along with great laundry facilities so you don’t have to hire an extra car for all the clothes! They’ll also welcome dogs on leash and have disabled facilities that you’ll probably want to talk through before you make a booking.

There are just 200 pitches at Le Paradis number and they are happy to book neighbouring pitches for those of you holidaying with friends or family. The site is open for chalet bookings between 6th April and 22nd September and for tents between 21st April and 15th September.

If you book a tent you are in for a rare treat. Your tent will have two or three bedrooms (your choice) and a separate kitchen/living space which has all the kitchen equipment you need. There is also a barbecue which, along with the patio furniture means family meals al fresco – what could be better?

The 2 bedroom chalets give you more creature comforts if that’s what you are looking for. They have two bedrooms, one double and one twin with two extra beds in the separate living space and a great kitchen that has everything you’ll need except for a dishwasher which is why you bring the old man along! You can also decide to have outside decking space which makes for perfect summer barbecues.

Facilities & Activities at Le Paradis

Firstly, there is a very child friendly children’s playground (I guess it would be wouldn’t it) and a traditional French restaurant with a large open fire. They serve local specialties as well as a children’s menu. For something simpler there is also a take away which is great for lunch time burgers, omelettes and steaks (from a take away? How French is that) and sausages. You can also get a lot of your self-catering shopping done in the mini market. Looks like there’s no need to leave the camp site!

There’s a great choice of swimming at Le Paradis. There are three pools all of different sizes and depths which is great for all the family no matter how small. The on-site bar is French with a Dutch influence (not so strange when you realise the park’s owners are Dutch) and there are regular discos organised during high season in July and August. The games room with electronic games, pinball and air hockey will be a real hit with the kids. There are more than enough activities to arrange your own Olympic Games here. There are a number of sports available on site including canoeing and kayaking, tennis, table tennis, five-a-side-footie badminton, basketball. If you are looking to get out and about there is a cycle hire shop with adult, children’s, mountain bikes and BMX available as well as helmets and kiddie seats . Canoeing and horse riding excursions can also be arranged.

Outside of the camp is one of the loveliest regions in France. Check out the local towns and villages with their cafes and markets. It’s worth getting up early to see that food doesn’t always come wrapped in plastic. You are also very close to the World Heritage site at La Roque St Christophe, protected by UNESCO. It’s within walking distance of the camp site. Trips to the Aquarium du Perigord, Europe’s the largest private aquarium and Quercyland water park with 6 separate pools and waterslides will also be high spots on your holiday. Chateau de Haufort is also recognised as one of the best examples of a Chateau in south-western France.

    Camping Le Paradis which translates as “Camping Paradise” sums it up well.

    The site is very pretty with warm friendly atmosphere. You’ll find lots of nice scenery and food within the vicinity. Tip – Grab yourself some freshly baked, croissants or bread in the morning, it’s delicious.

    The kids are already bugging us to book again this year, we are considering it.
