Exploring the Dordogne on foot or by bike

Why not hire a bike from the campsite and go out for a ride on one of the many local tracks and paths which vary in length and difficulty ? More information on this link here. There are also several maps and route plans available at reception.  

Plans and walking guides around Montignac Lascaux are available at reception. The Les Eyzies – Le Bugue cycle path is 12km from the campsite.  Note, there is no dedicated cycle path directly outside the campsite.

Swimming in the Vézère

The campsite jetty is situated in front of the riverside pitches and Bellevue cottages. Have a go at diving from it!  

An easier way into the water is via the beautiful stone steps that go gradually down to the river. 5 minutes away there is a small beach with a fantastic view of the cliffs at La Roque St Christophe. You can get to the beach on foot or by mountain bike, by going along the shady banks of the river on a sandy track.

Canoeing trip  on the Vézère

You can set off by canoe from the campsite. 

Paddling down the Vézère is a must-do activity on holiday in the Dordogne. You get wonderful views of the top tourist sites in the Vézère Valley (caves, castles, villages…), situated at the foot of majestic chalk cliffs, between Montignac-Lascaux and les Eyzies.  

You see the Valley from a totally new and peaceful perspective as you float down the shaded and calm waters of the Vézère.  

Fishing along the Vézère

With its quiet and shady accessible banks, the Vézère river is a favourite spot for anglers. It is suitable for both beginners and experienced anglers looking for freshwater fish (roach and catfish are plentiful) 1st and 2nd category waters (fishing regulations). 

Fishing licenses on sale at reception.
