Rocamadour lies close to the Yelloh! Village Payrac Les Pins campsite, a town which lies on St James's Way, perched on a 150 metre high cliff. With its listed religious monuments, its range of open-air activities, its famous goat cheese and the renowned Rocher des Aigles, come and soak up the delights of this sacred location.
Set off to discover the region's famous caves with the family. There's Lascaux, which needs no introduction, and which exhibits perfect replicas of the engravings and paintings created by prehistoric man. And then there are the caves of Lacave, for a two-stage visit to see the stalactites and other amazing features of this location. And to make your trip even more fantastic, come and see the Padirac Chasm, the largest of its kind in France!

Here at Yelloh! Village Payrac Les Pins, between Sarlat and Rocamadour, not far from the Padirac Chasm and the Lascaux Caves, you’ll be ideally placed to discover all the wonders of the Dordogne Valley.

Take your time to explore the steep pathways of the village of Rocamadour, a major stopping-off point on the Way of Saint James and a high point of Christian spirituality, that seems to cling so precariously to its cliffside, or the charming narrow streets of villages such as Loubressac, Carennac, Autoire, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie and La Roque-Gageac.

Take a journey out of time as you descend into the depths of the Padirac Chasm or the Lacave caves. Follow in the footsteps of early man with the sublime cave-paintings in the Lascaux, Cougnac and Pech Merle caves.

And don’t leave our region without having tasted a veritable Périgord salad with its walnuts, slices of smoked duck breast and foie gras, our duck confit with Sarlat-style potatoes, rocamadour cheese, all washed down by our black Cahors wine strongly marked by its rocky terroir.

Every Sunday, during our welcome cocktail, come and join us to discover our top tips for your holiday and all our favourite addresses. We know just how to help you organise your stay and make the most of every moment: the best spots for bathing, most gorgeous walks, tastiest restaurants... All the information you need is waiting for you at reception, as soon as you arrive here at the campsite.
