A campsite in a village
Beynac-et-Cazenac, a village of 500 inhabitants, has successfully married local authenticity and tourism.
Opposite the campsite entrance are the Capeyrou shops, where our customers and local people do their shopping.
The Vival supermarket run by Eric and Sophie, with European newspapers, fruits and vegetables and fresh fish twice a week.
A butcher’s shop run by Marc and Isabelle. Ask Marc for his best beef for your barbecue!
The valley bakery run by Nathalie – great croissants in the morning, nut cakes, a local speciality, and which are so good that they’re exported all the way to China.
The Lembert inn manufactures a range of certified Périgord goose and duck foie gras! Say goodbye to imports and say hello to quality. To be enjoyed in the inn or during organised tastings.
From the campsite, go through the River Dordogne barrier and walk along the river for 300m to arrive at the lower part of the village.

Discover the most famous chateaux and castles in France from the campsite
Chateau de Beynac
Walk up to discover this magnificent and mysterious chateau that you can see from every angle from the campsite. Go and take a look! You will see that it has many other facets. Hear about its rich history during a guided visit, or walk through the rooms and imagine the stories of its knights and princesses. The children will love it…
Chateau de Marqueyssac
The gardens of Marqueyssac have almost 6 km of shaded walks in a maze of over 150 000 hand-trimmed box trees. Wonderful panoramic views. Accessible on foot from the campsite.www.marqueyssac.com/
Château de Castelnaud
Another knights’ tale. This time, the enemies of Beynac. They kept a hostile eye on each other whenever they were not making war. Standing 2.5 km away along a path beside the River Dordogne, it is well worth a walk up the hill for a visit to its war museum, where many fine pieces have been collected to illustrate and explain the period of the Hundred Years War.
Highly appreciated by children.www.castelnaud.com
