Driving in France
Since 2017 you need a “Crit’Air” certificate for your car, if you drive in Low Emission Zones (LEZs). They’re easily obtained and cost only EUR 4.60. Like the UK, most major French cities now have LEZs
The RAC have produced a very good online guide – open here
Make sure you only order from the official French Goverment website – open here

Site description & planned programme
In the heart of the Lot, the campsite, built around its 18th century water mill, welcomes you in a bucolic, relaxing and environment-friendly setting. You will find spacious and tree-lined 71 pitches for caravans, tents or motorhomes.
In addition to the pure daily “Bel-Air”, you will have at your disposal a heated swimming pool, La Brasserie du Moulin in a “guinguette” style, for cool evenings, an indoor bar with a flea market spirit: Le Broc du Céou, a bowling alley or a play area for children.
The site is in the Lot, a stone’s throw from the majestic Lot and Dordogne valleys, at the gates of the Périgord Noir and surrounded by gems such as Sarlat, Rocamadour or Saint Cirq Lapopie
In conjunction with the site, we plan a number of excursions. You probably know that Cathy & Phil always organise active rallies but you can join in as much or as little as you wish!
Events & Excursions currently being planned include (at extra cost payable to the Hosts during the rally):
- Welcome drink at the site on arrival day.
- Guided tour of Rocamadour, a majestic medieval town nearby, including coach to/from and a full meal.
- A visit to Saint Cirq Lapopie, apparently the “most beautiful village in France”, taken by coach.
- A “farewell” meal on 16th or 17th June
- …and more!
