St Avit Loisirs reviews

St Avit Loisirs campsite holiday park, Le Bugue, Dordogne, France

The Kelly Family | July 2018

Pro's: Wonderful place, very scenic and pretty. Lots to do on the campsite and close by. Fabulous swimming pools. Con's: The more luxury Aspect caravan was too expensive for the full 10 days so just booked it for 5 days and the Espace caravan for the other 5.

The scenery at St Avit Loisirs is simply breathtaking and the campsite itself is well-maintained throughout. We embraced the great outdoors by expoloring the nearby forests and lake dipping along with canoeing. Our mobile home pitch on the east side of the site was quiet and peaceful, but not too far away from the activities. Our kids made two friends and played together most days which made our lives easier - happy kids = happy mum and dad. Only negative of the trip was our return flight being delayed at the small Bergerac airport which had a considerable lack of facilities to entertain two youngsters.

The Rimmer Family | August 2016

This is our second excursion to this holiday park, why? The park is set in gorgeous countryside in the stunning hills of Dordogne, offering tons of activities and home from home accommodation. There is an abundance of children’s clubs run by Eurocamp, I counted 9 this time around catering for 2 to 16 year olds. My youngest child enjoyed Macs fun station the most, Pirate themed activities will always win hands down, whilst my eldest enjoyed the Base club that was a little less erratic and more chilled with the likes of pizza parties, man hunt and volleyball. The activities on park are second to none. Mini golf, rock climbing, large crazy river, separate toddler pool (stunning), zip wire, driving range…need I say more? The parc also has a bar overlooking the pool, playground and arcade which is ideal for keeping an eye on the kids whilst having a few refreshing glasses of wine, or beers as the hubby tends to opt for.

There is a very nice restaurant on the park too that is a bit pricey but as it is renowned for it’s quality by the locals, it’s understandable after relishing the cuisine. We decided to just have two meal nights at the restaurant and buy the rest of our food at St Avit’s on park supermarket which was reasonably priced. The rolling hills and tall forests provided great views for our alfresco dining on the large decked area of the mobile home. Surprisingly few bugs bothered us, but we did use lemon candles which could be the reason why. They were only 2 euros from the park supermarket. We opted for a brand new mobile home this time called the Aspect which had modern interior, air con, a dishwasher, 3 bedrooms (biggest room had a queen bed), covered decking (with BBQ), posh loungers and movable sofas that was great when the kids wanted to play indoors. Evening entertainment was organised in a large room near the bar for the kids including a disco and karaoke whilst on some nights, singers performed in the bar. The scenery of the Dordogne is incredible and as long as the cheap flights continue to Bergerac, we will be returning again without hesitation. Especially when our last UK family excursion was a similar price, go figure.

The Pemberton Family | August 2016

Just back from a two week holiday here with my 3 children aged 3, 7 and 13. The kids had a great time and the campsite had activities for all of them. I hardly saw my eldest, he made friends with other children at the base kids club straight away. He also loved the high wire and climbing tower run by pgl too (the activities were included in the holiday package). My 7 year old enjoyed the kids club tent which was filled with crafts and game activities. Best of all their was a learn to cycle and learn to swim lessons for my youngest. She wasn't so confident in the water but practically learnt how to ballance and ride a bike after day 4. My heart in my mouth most of the time after her lack of fear from going super fast.

The site is well managed with friendly staff. The swimming pools are amazing with small fountains to big slides and a large lazy style slide with huge inflatable do-nuts. In the evening they had a games room, disco's ect to entertain the kids and a bar and very nice quaint restaurant with delishous food. Their was lots of English, Irish and Dutch on the campsite and plenty of activities close by such as Castles, Canoeing, a big aquarium and old vintage theme park with a big windmill and museum. We would go back to the Dordogne and St Avit campsite in a heartbeat.

The Hughes Family | July 2014

Booked a holiday home with Eurocamp here and had a fantastic time. The people on park were very friendly, facilities and pools kept imaculate and the action station had a zip wire, climbing wall and archery which was amazing. The park even had kids clubs which included learn to swim and learn to cycle sessions. Dordogne is beautiful with plenty of places to see. Just a couple of miles from St Avit park is a great little traditional French theme park village ( ), and a fantastic aquarium and aligator center ( ), as well as canoe hire ( ) along the nearby river. I would certainly return to Dordogne again as it is perfect for all my family.

The Crane Couple | June 2012

Spent two weeks in the Dordogne for our summer holiday and I must say, we would certainly return to this area of France again. The rolling countryside and manicured gardens really sets it apart from the other areas of France we have visited. The park we stayed at was St Avit Loisirs which was a 5 minute drive from the main town Le Bugue. A nice well cared for holiday park with a very good restaurant. We visited many sights in the area including the Benedictine Abbey, Sarlat historic town and the most memerable, Castelnaud fortress which is built on a rocky mountainside, ideal to see the views of the Dordogne valley.

Great campsite, lots of actvities for the kids and the staff very helpful. Nice food in the restaurant. A car is a necessity as the campsite is difficult to get to and the area has many sightseeing attractions to explore. Very well maintained grounds throughout with great views of the countryside. Would certainly return to the Dodogne and St Avit campsite.

The Wesley Family | July 2009

Stayed here in July and the whole family had a wonderful time. Dordogne is full of fasinating places to visit and the coutryside is outstanding. We visited a castle, chateau, an aquarium and a underground crystal cave. The campsite was immaculate too. The restaurant was very nice and the takeaway was also decent. The best part of the park according to the kids was the crazy river that had two large slides branching off from a waterfall pool. I must admit, I loved it too! Would recommend this park to younger families. Try the canoe trips at Le Bugue, a cheap day of fun entertainment.

The Flaine Family | June 2009

We stayed at Avit Loisirs in June, we got a last minute break with eurocamp. We flew to Bergerac with Ryanair, hired a car and drove the relatively short distance to the campsite (25 minutes), although would probably take longer in school holiday period).

The campsite itself is in a very quiet area, it was very well kept and clean. It’s a medium sized campsite, at the front is the reception, restaurant, bar (quite small), takeaway, food shop, gift shop, swimming pools, play areas and tennis court. Beyond that, to the right is all the park owned accommodation, and straight on and to the left is a mixture of eurocamp and keycamp mobile homes and tents as well as some nice separate pitches for tourers. At the far end of the park is where the kids clubs and huge action station is (think this was pgl). Whilst we were there the park was nice and quiet, although this could be because most of the holidaymakers there were either families with children under 5 or couples. There was no evening entertainment, but again that could be because we went out of season.

Most of the park facilities were open when we were there, the exceptions being the hut by the pool and the hut by the playground. I assume they sell ice creams and drinks from them, but I can’t be certain as they weren’t open (don’t worry – they still sell ice creams and drinks next to the takeaway). The main restaurant was a pricey but worth it. The food was that good even the locals from the village would visit, who were very pleasant and friendly. The other restaurant was very reasonably priced, although it has a slight strange set-up, you order and pay for your food inside, then take a seat at one of the tables outside, then when your number is called you have to go and collect your food from the take away! The outside food area was in a great spot and had a retractable roof.

Not only was we lucky with the weather, the sun was sorching most days, we also chose a fabulous park to stay at and we would definetly return to this delightful area of France again.
