A 3 star campsite in the Dordogne with covered and heated swimming pool

In the heart of the valley of man in the Périgord Noir, the 3-star campsite of Le Bournat has three swimming pools to cool off in, sunbathe or splash around. Away from the rentals and in a green and flowered environment, two outdoor swimming pools and a third, covered and heated, are reserved for our customers.

This water area, as impeccable as it is spacious, guarantees a moment of total relaxation before, after or between your excursions across the Dordogne and its countless tourist sites such as Sarlat, Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne, Lascaux or the castles of Beynac and Castelnaud.

Three basins for the pleasure of the whole family, from babies to the oldest.

  • A large 150 m² pool for swimmers or children and teenagers who need to let off steam. This pool is perfect for a dive, laps or a nap on an inflatable mattress.
  • A 36 m² family pool for the younger ones. This large, shallow paddling pool allows toddlers to discover the joys of the water and children learning to swim to practice more easily. Adults can lie down to relax or chat while watching over the little ones.
  • A 32 m² heated indoor swimming pool. The water at 29° is ideal for babies or people who are cold and will now not hesitate to go for a swim.


Deckchairs and parasols are available to relax in the shade or bask in the sun before or after taking a dip.

The bar/restaurant is nearby for a refreshment, an ice cream or a small savoury or sweet snack. The nearby children’s playground will delight the little ones after a good swim.

The swimming pools are open every day from 10am to 7pm in low season, and from 10am to 8pm in high season (except wednesday 10am – 7pm).

Hygiene and security

Concerned about hygiene, our swimming pools are maintained daily. They meet the legal sanitary standards. The area is entirely fenced in to avoid any accidents.


To limit noise and visual nuisance, the swimming pools are slightly set back from the pitches.

Water park and swimming nearby

The Dordogne Périgord Noir is full of streams, waterfalls, lakes offering natural swimming spots surrounded by the landscapes that characterize our region: wild banks, forests, rocky cavities and cliffs, bucolic fields … Without forgetting the many jewels of our history located along our waterways (cave dwellings, castles, bastides, gardens …).

And for families in search of laughter and thrills, water parks also flourish throughout the region … It’s up to you to choose, therefore, where you will put your towel once you leave our campsite with swimming pool:

  • adapted beach

At the port of Limeuil, a neighbouring village among the most beautiful villages in France located at the confluence of the Dordogne and Vézère rivers or in one of the two nautical bases in the vicinity of Le Bugue, at Trémolat and Saint Chamassy. On the programme: water skiing, entertainment, wakeboarding, inflatable games, pedal boats, slides … and much more await you.


  • a wild bank of greenery or pebbles

In Le Bugue, along the Vézère river, a natural swimming spot just a few steps from your pitch or holiday rental. Our campsite in the Dordogne is situated along the river in the Vézère Valley.

Here you can refresh yourself at leisure, take part in many water sports such as canoeing and, of course, fishing. Fish are abundant.


In Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère, a charming and typical Perigordian village, one of the most beautiful villages in France, or in Les Eyzies, a prehistoric site.
