On the child-friendly four-star Castle Camping Le Verdoyer, in the middle of le Parc Naturel Régional Périgord-Limousin, Dordogne, our 4/5-persons chalet is for rent. The cottage has two bedrooms (one with bunk beds) and a good sofa bed in the living room. It has a spacious terrace with a hammock in the garden. The sun terrace at the rear overlooks two lakes.
The cottage is furnished to enjoy in life. You do hardly have to take anything with you. Of course there's sufficient crockery and (child) cutlery and there are comfortable chairs on the terrace. For the cooler season, the chalet is equipped with gas stoves. There are games, a diverse stack of magazines and the collection of videos and DVDs for all ages is expanding steadily. In the chalet you will find all sorts of information about the area and also a good map is not lacking. Of course you as a tenant of the chalet can use all facilities on site. Bring your own linen, towels and tea towels or hire a linen package at the castle.
Besides Restaurant La Renaissance and Restaurant Le Bistro with a terrace on the pond, there is also a bar with a terrace, a (little) shop, there are two swimming pools and a large water slide, tennis court, the necessary climbing playgrounds and sandpits and the inevitable petanque . And for those who can not live without, wifi available. In the summer months there is a recreational team which organizes ample (free) activities for children aged 5 to 13. The kids will not get bored and are treated like kings, for they are guests in a castle. Moreover, there are enough playgrounds with swings and slides at the campsite. For those who prefer to sit inside (that occurs) there is a hall full of computer games. But. . . there is no disco.
Champs Romain is in that part of the Dordogne which is called Perigord Vert. A beautiful forest full of small lakes and fens. In this hilly area are picturesque villages, Romanesque churches, castles and of course famous prehistoric caves. They say that the best truffles come from this area, which will also be the reason that so many truffle dishes are offered at various restaurants. Touring around in the car and get out in time for you to relax will not be a problem.
In the immediate vicinity of the castle are beautiful hiking and cycling trails. Good bikes with gears of course, can be rented at the reception. At about 25 km from Champs Romain you can make several excursions by Canoe. Step on in Brantôme and get to know one of the most beautiful rivers in France; Dronne.
