Lovely big pitch with fridge and benches etc.

Stay from 08/08/2019

A good time, the pool was nice, large pitch, access difficult with a caravan, excellent but very overworked staff in the restaurant

Lovely site with a excellent outdoor pool area and friendly staff.

Stay from 15/09/2018

I would highly recommend La Paille Baisse, excellent facilities, friendly, welcoming staff, nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant and shop have been much improved by Jelle and Helene, who worked hard to maintain their very high standards. Great job!

Stay from 24/08/2018

Beautiful, friendly site, great size pitches however pitches were bit too close to one another, crowded under trees so was a shame it obscured beautiful views.

Kevin . S
Stay from 20/08/2018

Loved our stay but found that the security regarding teenagers late at night /early hours should have been regulated more

Laura . P
Stay from 18/08/2018

A good quality site with an excellent pool in an idyllic location.

Very busy and noisy site

Jonathan . C
Stay from 15/08/2018

This Campsite is a brilliant location from which to explore the Dordogne valley and is immaculate in all areas. In particular i wanted to thank the reception staff who helped me check in to my return flight and even printed off my ticket for me! There was excellent customer service throughout the site and we were made to feel very welcome by all staff. I will definitely be back again in the future and will recommend you to any of my friends/family that are travelling to the area.

Stay from 11/08/2018

We had an extremely pleasant stay at the camping. Except for a few remarks about our accommodation (see below) we enjoyed the isolated location in the middle of the forest and the wonderful pool area. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We made use of the activities offered (canoe etc.) Congratulations on organizing that for the people staying at the campsite! The region has so much to offer - we did a lot but still disn’t see half. We will be back for sure.

Great camping

Shelagh . S
Stay from 14/07/2018

We love Paille Basse and have stayed 4 times. We will come back but we will not use the glamping tents again. The quality and the layout and the extras were very disappointing. Also, the small tents are no use for teenagers. There is no electricity and no light.

Lovely site and I enjoyed. The site was a little too out of the way and it took a while to.get abywhere
