Welcome to the site of campsite 'Le Peyret Bas' and gîte 'Nadine'
In May 2004 we discovered this idyllic spot near Villefranche-du-Périgord by chance. It was a quiet and private spot. The house and barn, partly built into the hill, were shining in the warm spring sun. We walked around dreamily and enjoyed everything this piece of land had to offer us; a view over a sloping meadow, bordered with a beautiful forest with a brook. Once we woke up, we knew this would be our spot, a place to feel at home and a dream coming true.
The campsite is open from 23 July to 20 August 2022. Gîte 'Nadine' can be rented all year round except July and August.
'Le Peyret Bas' is the original name of our partly restored farm, hidden between the hills around Villefranche-du-Périgord ('Périgord Pourpre'). An ideal holiday spot for rest, sun, clean air and good food. The 'Périgord Pourpre' is located in the south west of the Dordogne at the border with the departments Lot and Let et Garonne, an ideal basis for cycling, walking, horse riding and canoeing. Also visit the brocantes, castles, museums and medieval villages and towns.
The campsite of 'Le Peyret Bas' is 5.5 ha large and exists of a meadow and a slightly sloping forest with beeches, oak trees and tame chestnuts and an old farm. A small brook flows through the forest. There are 6 spacious emplacement, some in the shadow, some in the half shadow, where you can enjoy the rest and nature.
This farmhouse is situated in a wooded area and as inhabitants you notice how peaceful and quiet it is here. A walk over the 5.5 ha large terrain is a pleasure every time, over the rolling meadows and through the forrest with a small 'plan d'eau', with water from a higher located well. Children can play freely in the forest. The 'fermette' consists of a house, a large barn with stable and pigsty. The house has been modernised and is equipped with all mod coms. A new bathroom with separate WC. A kitchen with stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave and pots and pans. The living room has a spacious sitting area with television, a wood burner and there is also central heating. One bedroom has a double beda and the other singles. The pool is cleaned with a salt water system, so the water is soft for the skin and eyes. There is also a possibility to use the camp site next to the house for friends or family. After consultation.
