Camping with our dog!
The campsite is set in a shady valley with plenty of shaded plots and some sunny ones too. There is a pool and children’s play area also a block of toilets, showers and washing facilities. Perfectly positioned for walkers, cyclists and site seers alike. Our dog was welcome too!

Large Grass Pitch - 110m2
It was so peaceful (and laid back) that I felt truly relaxed. It isn't flash, but just what we needed. Lying in our hammock under the stars between the tall pine trees... heavenly!
The pool was great too!
Carla is a multilinguist and ever so kind and helpful. We will be back!

Really loved our time here, will certainly return. Huge pitches either secluded or in the sun. Really clean and appealing pool, and quiet campsite surrounded by countryside. Fresh pastries and bread can be ordered daily. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere, we loved it.

Wonderful and quiet campingsite. Pitches partially under the beautiful pinetrees which give enough shelter. Beautiful view on the countryside.
I have been here several times and I'm always delighted to return here in summer. The owners Carla and Fred are very welcoming and interested in their guests. Great place for families with children as well as for couples or single people. Never noisy except for Thursday night (live music by local artists).
Swimmingpool with enough space around to take a sunbath and to play badminton, table football or jeu de boules and a playing ground for children.
You can by drinks and snacks and nice meals at the campingsite. I loved the local beers, the home made pizza’s and the local specialities. The showers have been renovated and are bright and clean.
Once a week there is live music which gives you the possibilty to meet other people in a relaxed atmosphere.
Nice villages (Brantome, Bourdeilles) and town of Perigueux. Canoeing on the river Dronne. Biking. Local markets.
Can’t wait to return to Camping du Bas Meygnaud !!!

We booked 6 nights here this summer based on the other 5 star reviews but only stayed 3, and even then thought about turning away on arrival. The owners were no where to be seen when we arrived. Carla eventually appeared and was very apologetic. As for Fred, he emerged 24 hours later in the “bar” ( no food, no alcohol) with a massive reefer hanging from his mouth. The ladies showers (all 2 of them) had one door hanging off, the pitches were covered in fallen branches, the pool was covered in a layer of leaves and bugs and had no seats around it. This could be a great campsite.... but sadly isn’t. Very disappointed.
We've been camping here for more than 20 years, first as a couple, then with our son, and we have always had a lovely stay and never wanted to go home. The owners, Carla and Fred are very friendly and helpful and do anything they can to make your stay enjoyable. During peak season they arrange various entertainments for a range of age groups such as live music and craft workshops.
The cafe serves a limited menu of tasty snacks and meals, with alcohol if needed. A small shop sells basic essentials and local delicacies including honey from Fred's own beehives. The amenities block is always clean and functions well. The small swimming pool has its own toddler pool and is a great place to cool off when the temperature is in the mid-30s. The friendly atmosphere and safe environment means that this is a great place for families to come and meet others from all over Europe.
The site is rural and tranquil but within easy reach of many of the Dordogne's gems. The picturesque village and chateau of Bourdeilles and the town and abbey of Brantome are a short drive or cycle away. Many more chateaux, prehistoric caves and pretty towns and villages are also within easy reach. The larger town of Perigeux is a 25min drive away and has a number of cultural attractions - a museum of the town's roman past and several cathedrals to name a few. Other towns such as Bergerac, Riberac are a little further and Bordeaux is easily reached on a day trip.
