The Dordogne is not actually a region of France, but simply refers to that part of France through which the Dordogne river flows. It encompasses part of the Limousin, the Massif Central, P�rigord and Aquitaine. But to most British holiday-makers it means the area centred on Lascaux, with its prehistoric caves and paintings, and signifies a region where gentle tributaries flow into the Dordogne river, passing through rolling hills and deep gorges, where ancient villages cling to the side of steep cliffs, villages where nothing much has changed for centuries.

The Dordogne is perfect for camping holidays. There is just so much to do, whether you are travelling with a young family or perhaps a couple looking for a great value holiday in one of the most relaxed parts of France. As well as visiting the many prehistoric sites in the Dordogne, you can canoe on the rivers, swim in them, take walks of varying length on marked paths or cycle along the quiet byways. Pot-holing is popular, as is horse riding.

The campsites themselves are well-run and with all the amenities you'd expect of high quality camping holidays. Check out those on offer from Eurocamp. You're sure to find the one that offers just the right balance of peace and quiet and excellent facilities.
