Welcome to the Vézère Valley, with its Amazon like river and relics of the past worthy of Indiana Jones. Your host family, passionate about the Dordogne for decades, looks forward to meeting you.  

In this wild and natural valley, our campsite reflects our values: pleasure, sharing and caring.  

We hope you will want to come and spend your precious holidays with us in our campsite; in the heart of Périgord Noir. We will be delighted to share our love of camping and the Dordogne with you. 

A family affair
Back to our roots

Find your true self in the Vézère Valley

Our campsite, at Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère, is bordered on one side by the river Vézère, and on the other by the Côte de Jor, a green and peaceful hill, certified Natura 2000.  

Luxuriant vegetation adds to the comfort of our 5 star services and facilities. Our friendly team is continually working to create a campsite which offers more than just a holiday: a world away from it all, rich in sensations and experiences…  

So let yourself go with the flow and enjoy a quality stay near to Lascaux, Sarlat and Les Eyzies.

The main pool

A water park with swimming pool and spa in Dordogne

Under the warm Dordogne sun, the water park is an oasis at Le Paradis. Enjoy a relaxing dip in the main outdoor heated swimming pool. Our other pools are great to laze in with fun water games for children. Stone steps lead to the indoor pool. Plunging into 27°C feels so good. Close by you can choose between the pleasures of steam in the hammam, warm air in the sauna and soothing bubbles in the jacuzzi.

The good life at a riverside campsite

The Vézère Valley is a sanctuary for wildlife and prehistoric art. 

No need to take the car to explore the local heritage. Instead you can walk, go on horseback, cycle, go mountain biking or go by boat on the Vézère. 

With easy access to a jetty and signposted paths the campsite is ideally placed for walks, bike rides or canoe trips. 

River life

5 star services and facilities near to Sarlat

Get ready to say hello to the French way of life. In the midst of landscaped gardens, are the old farm buildings which make up our village square: with a restaurant, bar, library and shop. Meet for a drink with friends, or find out the best advice and tips for discovering the region. You have all the time in the world to relax after yet another dip in the pool, or before sitting down to eat in the restaurant.  

Nature brings us together

Activities and entertainment in the campsite

Whatever the season there are outdoor activities to suit everyone’s holiday

With family and friends, why not learn to play pétanque, or have fun on the tennis court? If you’re feeling adventurous you can explore the local Dordogne footpaths by boat, walking or cycling. Sports enthusiasts can find a challenge to match their ambitions, on land or water.  And if you’re in a more contemplative mood, take a stroll in the vast garden of Le Paradis. 

For lazy holidays, there’s a sunbed for you by the water. Relax, whilst keeping an eye on the children in the pool: the play area is just nearby.

Discover the Dordogne terroir

Time moves slowly in the valley; the pace of life is gentle. 

Along the winding and wild river banks, hamlets and castles built in the local golden stone appear among the high clifftops and dense woodland.  Take in the air of the fertile lands and river.  

In the Valley of Mankind, at the heart of the Périgord Noir, visitors are encouraged to explore off the beaten track, admire its stunning views, delve into the ambience of a castle, a garden or a troglodytic site.

What our visitors say 
Great campsite in parkland setting by Vezere river, with walks, pools, activities, bar/restaurant etc. Friendly and welcoming. Fuly serviced pitches. Very handly for Vezere valley attractions: pretty St Leon sur Vezere, Montignac, Les Eyzies,…
A stunning environment with everything you need to enjoy a super holiday. Canoeing, swimming, cycling, car hire, electric car charging all set in beautifully landscaped grounds close to the best sites of the Dordogne.
I was in two minds as to whether I would put a review as I didn’t want to tell everyone how amazingly relaxing this place is. But in a world of so much chaos I thought we could all do with at bit of R&R. You won’t be disappointed. Just please don’t come when I’m there…
Our second visit to Le Paradis and we were lucky enough to stay in one of their Privelege Cottages. It was fabulous. So clean, airy and comfortable. My son slept like a log! The site is spotless and so well situated for seeing all of the sites in the Dordogne. The staff are great and you can really tell that Ge and Ellen really care about their guests. Would highly recommend the canoeing trip!
This is a very pretty campsite which is beautifully maintained. We had some issues with lack of WiFi as I needed to work but the staff have been amazing. The shop is well stocked and sells great bread and pastries. The pool complex is very tasteful. Pretty bar and restaurant. Thanks for you help.
