Camping Lune Sur Le Lac is traditional camping as it should be: simple, unpretentious and what estate agents would call 'wonderfully appointed'. That being the case, the site is fairly minimal in terms of facilities; there are all the essentials like electric points, hot water and showers in the new ablution block, as well as laundry facilities and Wi-Fi (at a small premium). Standard pitches are generously sized at 150sqm, whilst campers can upgrade to either a ‘comfort pitch’ with electric and water, or a cool ‘dog pitch’, where your four-legged friend can wander free within a privately fenced area.
On the sightseeing front, the beautiful town of Monpazier offers several highlights. Established in 1284 by a representative of Edward I of England, Monpazier had a tempestuous time during the 16th centuries Peasant Revolts and Wars of Religion. But despite these many assaults, the town has survived remarkably unscathed, with original gates, walls and a church. Other villages worth checking out are Belvès with its yellow-gold dwellings strung across a sublime hilltop, and Villefranche-du-Périgord, with its huge covered market in the central square.
Strolling around those wonderfully charming villages and markets will be the only time during your stay here when you break into more than an amble. That’s just the kind of place it is. And when you’re as pretty as Camping Lune Sur Le Lac is, surrounded by lush green hills, turquoise blue lakes and fabulous food and wine, what’s the rush?
