Take advantage of the good weather to go swimming

Bathing in the Dordogne

The summer period in the Dordogne is relatively hot. It is not unusual for the thermometer to exceed 30°C for long periods. Swimming is therefore one of the most popular activities for tourists who choose to live in the Périgord during this season.

In order to satisfy this desire to swim in the Dordogne, the campsite Le Garrit*** offers its holidaymakers the possibility to swim in a solar heated pool. You can enjoy a refreshing dip from sunrise to sunset, but please note that there is no lifeguard on duty.

But in addition to the campsite's own swimming pool, guests at Garrit*** will have direct access to the Dordogne. The campsite has its feet in the water, so don't worry, we're not talking about flooding. You will be able to swim whenever you want in one of the cleanest rivers in Europe! A space naturally arranged when the water level drops so that you can enjoy this unique river in France.

Getting away from the campsite

You're off to discover the hidden treasures of the Périgord Noir on this sunny day? This is an excellent idea! Sarlat, Saint-Cyprien, the medieval fortresses of Castelnaud or Beynac, the Lascaux cave, the Bastide villages of Bèlvès or Monpazier... so many nuggets to see or revisit in the Périgord region. Good news for those who love to swim, many rivers and streams are adjacent to these magnificent places and will allow you to enjoy swimming but also canoeing or angling. The Dordogne, the Céou or the Vézère: you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to jumping into the water!
