Small family campsite France
Our small family campsite in France is located in the Correze, the southernmost department of the Limousin. We are a dutch couple and are living here allready for twenty years and we still enjoy it. Typical about our campsite is the hospitality, the familial atmosphere. We like to do fun sportive things together with our guests, take time to have a little chat, and help you if necessary with all kind of things. We are all day present, especially in low season you somethimes have to look for us. But then often we are not far away and maybe cleaning the sanitary buildings. Our campsite is named after the hamlet Chantegril, in France called “Lieu dit”. So it is Camping Chantegril. The word Chantegril comes from Chantegrillion which means cricket. So in certain seasons you will here some crickets but never too loud.
More about our small campsite
It has 47 pitches in total, 10 rental accommodations and 37 camping pitches. The campsite has a rustic, authentic farm of over 230 years old with a cosy outside bar. The number of pitches is one thing but he way the campsite has been set up is really friendly and is inviting to meet other people. We have a swimming pool which measures 40 ft. x 17 ft. and has easy access via a round roman pool stairs.
Activities on the campsite
Of course, it is up to you to do what you want and when you want to do something. What can you expect from a small family campsite in France. We regularly organize spontaneous activities. This way you get to know each other in a friendly way. After all these years we can say that this typifies the campsite, everyone talks to everyone. Whether you come alone or with a family. And that is exactly what we liked about camping. Child-friendly also means that there is plenty of room to play and make friends. The children can play either in the swimming pool, playground or our own little forest where they can build cabins. The playground has a slide , a tower with climbing rope, 2 swings, a seesaw, a small car on a spring, two table tennis tables and a volleyball court. In the evening we sometimes play volleyball or foot in the village. Further on we organise sometimes in our little forest for the kids and the parents a smuggling game. We take you to a climbing park. Off course small other things can be organised but we do not reveal everything
Activities in Low season.
Of course in Low season the activities are different and less frequent but we will make shore that it is never dull. If somebody asks to organise a “jeu de boule” tournament we will do so and otherwise you will see suddenly a hike announced to the beautiful gorges de la Dordogne for example. And if you enjoy doing nothing, you also came to the right place.
Why we find it the most beautiful region in France
France has many beautiful regions, and the correze is certainly one of them. It is much less crowded than the
Dordogne region located next to us. We are within walking distance of the beautiful Gorges de la Dordogne, with its impressive dams. In the area between the Auvergne and the Limousin you will find especially a lot of natural beauty. It offers a varied landscape of fertile plains, wooded gorges and rolling hills, which you can explore on foot, by bike or by car. There are walking trails around our campsite and on our campsite we have several routes signed out for you if you want to visit for example a picturesque village like Salers and the mountain the “puy mary” on the same day. Liginiac has also numerous of signposted mountain bike tracks for those who prefer to explore the local area on two wheels. The Dordogne is the separation between the Correze and the Auvergne.
From the campsite it is only 5 km to the beautiful lake, Lac de Triouzone, or also called Lac de Neuvic. The lake has two pleasant beaches.
Our tiny little village Liginiac
