We have stayed here every year since 2011 and have always really enjoyed our stay.
The owners an unpretentious family,are welcoming, friendly and very helpful, without being intrusive.
The fact that we have chosen to stay there regularly is indicative of our appreciation for the people and the place.
There are a number of good quality and inexpensive restaurants within a five or six mile radius, there are markets daily in neighbouring towns, Bergerac is about 30 minutes drive, Riberac about the same, and Bordeaux an hour, and is accessable by train from Mussidan, 7 miles away.
.
There is a swimming pool on site and I would quite happily recommend this, especially for a quite relaxing holiday

We were so very happy with our stay this year at the Pont de Fournil Campsite. Run by such a kind and lovely family whom made us feel very welcome. The Dormouse Gite we were giving was very nice and clean, with plenty of space and a lovely kitchen to cook all of our meals. The facilities were great with lots to do, from the swimming pool to the tennis court, walks around the lake and lovely trips to the local markets. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you
