Camping Aqua Viva, Périgord Noir, Dordogne

Camping Aqua Viva with Canvas Holidays

This 4* campsite opens in mid April until mid September. Further down the page we have added in all the facilities this campsite has, in addition to our suggestions for the best methods of getting there by train, plane and ferry.

This is a small and peaceful campsite in the heart of the Dordogne which is perfect for families with young children. As the site is nestled in woodland there is a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. The heated outdoor swimming pool is perfect for lazy afternoons by the pool and children can enjoy their own paddling pool with small slides. On site there are lots of activities on offer to keep the whole family happy including mini-golf. For those seeking some relaxation, the fishing lake, where you can fish for trout is popular. 

The surrounding area is what really makes a visit to this campsite so special. The Dordogne is home to stunning scenery and one of the best ways to explore the area is by canoe or kayak.River Dordogne, Camping Aqua Viva

Round and about

The campsite is located in the heart of the Dordogne region in the Périgord Noir – a region rich in history. The Medieval town of Sarlat is 5 miles away and is worth a visit to enjoy its beautiful architecture including a stunning cathedral. The tourist office here has maps available of walks around the town that help you to take in all of the notable sights.

The local area is fantastic for exploring by bike and the closest cycle path is just 3km from the campsite. A must in this region is to hire a canoe or kayak and enjoy a gentle ride down the River Dordogne taking in the beautiful views of clifftop villages. Those with an interest in history will be spoilt with the places to see – the highlights of the region are Castelnaud-la-Chapelle Castle and Les Grottes de Lacave.
