visit the dordogne perigord without a cat

A nature campsite in the Dordogne

Our Dordogne campsite near a small lake is ideally located in the heart of the Périgord Noir. It is comfortably nestled in the Beune valley, a small tributary stream of the Vézère. This small, very green valley is classified as a part of the Grand Site of the Vézère Valley.

There’s nothing better than renting a holiday home or a pitch at Le Pont de Mazerat to visit the Périgord Noir. You don’t need to drive. You can discover its countryside or its slate-roofed houses built out of yellow stone on foot or by bike.

Departing from the Campsite

On foot or by mountain bike

Go on foot or by mountain bike on the marked hiking trails, leaving your car at the campsite.

Many trails start from the campsite. You will find maps and all the explanations at the reception.

The inhabitants of the village of Tamniès work together to restore and maintain the local traditional architectural heritage. While on a hike, take the time to admire the stone huts, the wells and the restored paths and low walls.

A campsite in the Dordogne close to a lake. The campsite is located next to l’Etang de Tamniès, which has been awarded a ‘pavillon bleu’ label for the quality of its water since 2011. The 5 hectare lake offers the possibility to swim or sunbathe on a safeguarded fine sandy beach.

Dogs are allowed on the grassy parts, on a leash, but they are not allowed to take a swim in the lake.

For fishing enthusiasts the lake offers several varieties of freshwater fish such as carp, sturgeon, black bass, pike, and pike-perch.

The Tamniès fishing lake is open from May 1st to December 31st. It is compulsory to have a fishing card.

During the summer season (July-August), a one-day card can be purchased directly at the lake.

Off the beaten path is better. Spend your holidays on a campsite in the Dordogne close to a lake that cares about the environment.
