Camping holidays Payrac
Ideally located between Sarlat and Rocamadour, your camping holidays in Payrac will give you easy access to the major tourist attractions of the Midi-Pyrénées region between Dordogne and Lot. The little ones will love Gramat Animal Park located at the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Causses du Quercy, where you will discover over 150 different species of creatures to the delight of young and old! While taking camping holidays in Payrac, take the opportunity to visit the most beautiful villages of the Dordogne Valley. Start in the village of Rocamadour, a charming little Lot region town clinging to the side of a 150-meter tall cliff overlooking the Alzou valley. A cradle of Christianity and a major stop on the road to Saint Jacques de Compostelle, the town has many religious buildings such as the Saint-Sauveur Basilica, the Saint-Amadour crypt, as well as the Sainte-Anne, Saint-Blaise, Saint-Jean-Baptiste, Notre-Dame and Saint-Michel chapels. Architectural and cultural heritage lovers will be delighted.
The Dordogne Valley is also home to three of the most beautiful villages in France, namely Autoire, Carennac, Loubressac and it also abounds with exceptional sites that are not to be missed! Dive into the heart of the Padirac Chasm, a natural cave measuring approximately 35 meters in diameter which will lead you into the bowels of the earth, over 100 meters underground, to see an underground river. Less than 15 minutes away from Payrac, Lacave Caves are also worth visiting. A small train will take you to the caves to discover the underground world that will open up to you.
