Camping In Brantome

Camping In Brantome & The Perigord Vert

Camping In Brantome and the Perigord Vert puts you within easy reach of some of the most beautiful villages and small towns in the whole of France. This includes Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, Saint-Jean-de-Cole and Limeuil, all listed as a holder of the “most beautiful villages in France” award, Bourdeilles and it’s magnificent chateau and of course, Brantome itself, often described with only slight exaggeration as the “Venice of the Dordogne”. It is a very pretty town with a mix of medieval and renaissance architecture to admire in a lovely riverside setting on the Dronne, a tributary of the River Isle.

Here is a list of some potential good options for Camping In Brantome and the surrounding parts of the Perigord Vert.

Having had the pleasure of camping at Chateau Le Verdoyer on a family holiday some years ago, this camping park ranks amongst the very best I have stayed at. It has many facilities and is well run by it’s Dutch owners who are multi-lingual. A new heated, indoor swimming pool has recently been added to those facilities. There are pitches for tents, trailer tents, caravans and motor homes in a large field with well defined pitches.

There are other options for Camping In Brantome and the Perigord Vert such as Camping Puynadal which is further out from Brantome than Camping Peyrelevarde, featured above, and a bit smaller and cheaper.
