Périgueux North, Dordogne
Caravans in the Sun is pleased to announce the latest mobile home park in the Northern Dordogne area of France. The park is ideally situated at the edge of the Parc Naturel Regional Périgord-Limousin in the heart of the close green valleys of the Périgord Vert with its forests and uncultivated land. The park is approximately a one hour drive from Bergerac Airport and approximately 2 hour’s drive from Bordeaux Airport. The drive to the park from Caen ferryport takes approximately five and a half hours and from Calais the drive will take approximately seven and a half hours.
The park has the advantage of an open air swimming pool, paddling pool for children, bar, restaurant, shop and also has its own 4,000m² fishing lake with carp and roach and visitors can even hire small fishing rods. The nearest swimming lake with its manmade beaches is just 800m from the park and the nearest town is within walking distance and has the advantage of restaurants, banks, shops, supermarkets, hairdressers and a railway station. Fresh produce markets are held here on Tuesday mornings and Saturdays and the busiest weekly market in the region is held on Thursdays a mere 20 minute’s drive away at Excideuil – with its castle, gothic church and 16th century houses.
Historians will enjoy a trip to the Vézère Valley just 67kms away – an area with prehistoric caves and cave paintings and classed as one of the cradles of civilization after 400,000 years of human occupation. Porcelain connoisseurs will relish a trip to Limoges which for over 200 years has thrived as the top producer of hard-paste porcelain china in France – wonderful examples fill the city museums and galleries. One of the most famous tourist destinations in Spain – the visually stunning and sophisticated coastal city of San Sebastian with fabulous architecture, plazas and parks- is less than four and a half hours’ drive from the park.

We can supply any make and model of mobile home including Delta, Willerby, Pemberton, Victory, ABI, Swift, BK, Regal, Tingdene and IRM to name a few, if your choice is not listed please contact us for an accurate sited price.

Arrange a viewing
We have 2 options available on this mobile home park. Option 1 – 2 nights accommodation in a hotel with a tour of the park, the viewing of mobile homes (where available), tour of local area and possible collection from Bordeaux airport. Alternatively, option 2 – you can make an appointment to be shown around the park and the homes available during a day visit.
Please note: Brand new mobile homes are not already sited on the mobile home park, these models must be viewed in the UK either prior to, or after your park visit. Please call us if you are interested in viewing a new mobile home, we will locate your requested make/model of home on a showground in the UK, trying to provide a location as close to you as we possibly can. Any resale mobile homes we may have listed on the website are situated on the park and will be available to view with your appointment.
Viewing trip costs will be refunded up to a maximum of £150 if you proceed to purchase a brand new mobile home (excludes pre-owned resale homes). Your accommodation invoice or flight receipt will be required for the credit adjustment and will be shown as a credit on your final invoice. The cost is not redeemable in conjunction with any other special offer, price reduction, discounts or promotions.
Your viewing trip starts when you meet up with our customer service team at Bordeaux airport or at your hotel in Périgueux where you can check-in and make the arrangements to view the park and the local area the following day. You will now be able to relax for the rest of the day/evening. If required our team can inform you of the local area, the location of amenities, restaurants and answer any initial questions you may have.
The next day they will show you around the site and answer any further questions you may have. You may then want to explore the surrounding towns and villages, take a drive around the local area or visit some of the local attractions. If you would like to take a drive and explore yourself then our team will always be on hand for advice, directions and any other information you may require.
That night you get to relax in your hotel again before heading back to the airport for your return flight home. You may wish to return to the park the following day for a final look before flying back, this is fine and our team will be available to take you back for a second look.
You contact our office with your planned travel arrangements and day of arrival with an approximate time for when you would like to view the park. We then make the arrangement for you to come and view the park and homes (where applicable). Unfortunately an appointment is necessary to view the park as this is a residential style community and we like to keep disruption to home owners to a minimum. We do not employ high pressure sales teams and at no time during the visit will you be under any pressure or obligation to purchase. We believe that the product, once seen sells itself and if you are interested, you will contact us to complete the purchase. We will then ensure that you are given our full assistance and guide you through your purchase if required.
If required our team can inform you of the local area, the location of amenities, restaurants etc. and answer any initial questions you may have, we can also recommend a local hotel if you wish to stay local to the park for a couple of nights.
Your travel arrangements are booked in conjunction with our UK office subject to availability. This will be coordinated with our customer service team in France.
