Our campsite is situated at Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère in Périgord Noir. It is in a valley legendary for its connection with the origins of mankind. But in particular, our campsite is on the banks of the Vézère, the perfect river for fishing and canoeing. It is also a beautiful natural swimming pool. On the other side of the campsite, is the Côte de Jor, a green and peaceful hillside, labelled Natura 2000. 

Our rentals, situated between cliff and river, blend in with the landscape. Everyone can relax during a holiday in France near to Lascaux, Sarlat and Les Eyzies

Among the many campsites in Dordogne, Le Paradis is lucky to cohabit with the life of the river Vézère. It borders a part of the campsite. You can access it easily by a jetty and swim, fish or canoe. 

Some of our rentals and pitches are right next to the riverbank. Everyone can have the space and the privacy they require. Our 5-star campsite has been carefully planned for shade, to keep you cool and give you a beautiful view from your lodging.

Stay in Dordogne during the low season

Spring and autumn are a good time to enjoy the river. It is quiet, and so perfect for observing wildlife. The soft glow of the sun and the quality of the light favours the outdoor life.  

Come and stay at Le Paradis campsite, whatever the season. You will discover the authentic Périgord Noir. If it rains, shelter in a castle or a cave, or sit by the fire in a typical Périgourdian restaurant. When the sun comes out, its promising for fishing! 

As soon as it opens, benefit from all the campsite’s services and Activities.
