Camping Le Grand Dague Atur/Périgueux
With access along a minor road, hidden by lots of lovely greenery, is the beautiful main building of Le Grand Dague. You will receive a warm welcome from the Iris Parc team at this authentic old farm, which now serves as the reception. Le Grand Dague is beautifully situated in the heart of the countryside with fantastic views of the surrounding valley. As the campsite is situated near the A89, it's only a 5 minute drive to the village of Atur and a 10 minute drive to the historic city of Périgueux.
Lots of great changes since 2017!
First the pool was extended. Then the restaurant, snack bar, shop and bar were completely renovated in 2017! The restaurant had a total makeover and now has a large covered terrace. Lovely, because the terrace has a magnificent view over the hills of the Dordogne. Craving an ice cream? The snack bar has some delicious ones and tasty pizzas too. If you prefer cooking your own meals, the large grocery shop has a wide range of products to choose from.
