We stayed here for only 4 nights on the way to a longer stay at a campsite in Spain and wished we had stayed longer. Chateau de Lacomte is owned and run by an English family, the Coes (who featured on a TV programme about couples who left Britain for the good life in France), so no language barriers here!

The campsite is set in the middle of the countryside in the Causses du Quercy Regional Natural Park and is very quiet. It has a great swimming pool overlooked by the bar and restaurant where the English cooks turn out tasty regional dishes that apparently surprised the local French population with its quality (they don't think Les Rost Boefs can cook).

The pitches are very large and generally divided up by hedges - check out the picture of our tent to the left to see how much space we had.

As I said, the campsite is in the middle of the countryside and you'll need a car or bikes to travel around - even to the nearby village which always seemed to be shut. Rocamadour (see pic below) is a twenty minute drive away and is definitely worth a visit. It's an old medieval village perched on the side of a cliff.

The Dordogne River is also a short drive if you fancy a lazy canoe trip.

The campsite can be found in the Camping and Caravanning Club's Carefree Holidays brochure.
