OPINION OF OUR ADVENTURERS

Situated in a beautiful location, at the foot of the Dordogne cliffs and ideally placed in the Haut Quercy. The lodges are pleasant but some are quite close which generates a little promiscuity in particular when the children start to scream... No beach but swimming is possible if you are careful with the canoes.The staff are very nice and helpful. Small problem with the rubbish bins during our stay, it's a shame there's no compost !

A unique experience for couples in the Dordogne with Lodg'ing. Lodged on the water's edge, it's a peaceful place perfect for exploring the surrounding area which is full of places to visit (Rocamadour, Lascaux, Saint Cirq Lapopie...) or simply enjoying the surrounding nature. Smiling staff are always at the service of their guests, we were delighted. Very appreciable breakfast and bar services

We should be able to put 6 stars for some places, and the Lodg'ing is one of them
To start with, The place is super comfortable, but the surprise is the staff who are incredibly warm!
After 3 days there, I was sick to my stomach to leave them... Something that rarely happens to me!
Really an above average experience, you can go there with your eyes closed
