Camping du Domaine de Maillac is situated 10 minutes from Sarlat, which is very picturesque, medieval town. By day, you can admire the beautiful architecture, wander through the extensive Saturday market, or watch the world go by from the one of the many pavement cafes. During the summer, Sarlat comes alive in the evening with many street entertainers. The camp site is 20 minutes from the River Dordogne, with its towering chateaux, beaches for paddling and swimming, and canoeing for softies down the gentle current. We are situated very centrally for visits to places of interest in the area. As well as many chateaux and gardens, and a country market in one village or another on every day of the week, you can visit the world-famous Lascaux caves, the medieval pilgrimage town of Rocamadour, caves at Padirac and Proumeyssac, and the pre-history museum at Les Eyzies, to name but a few. If you prefer, you can take advantage of the glorious countryside around the camping where footpaths are well marked for walkers and you can go fishing or horse riding. Camping du Domaine de Maillac is typically French. Many of our guests are French families who return year after year to meet old friends and to enjoy activities together. Each year, we are also pleased to welcome guests from the uk and other European Countries. We find they particularly enjoy the very French flavour of a holiday at Camping de Maillac. The camp site has 174 pitches (among which 130 reserved for tents, caravans and camping-cars), some completely shaded, but all with trees to provide shelter from the sun. All our pitches are a generous size. We also have some chalets, mobile homes, studio apartments and Coco Sweet (2/8 sleeps). There are two blocks of facilities and our showers are always hot ! We provide a washing machine and tumble dryer. A special area for camping-cars, with electricity and drainage (Euro-Relais), means we can cater for them all year round.

The large and heated swimming pool (28°C), alongside a generous paddling pool, means that all the family can spend an enjoyable afternoon in the water or sunbathing.
