Chateau Lacomte is an 'Adults Only' Campsite near Carlucet east of the A20. It's quiet, as you might expect and ideal for adults looking for a peaceful holiday set in beautiful grounds and within easy reach of the Dordogne and Lot attractions! For the sporty types; tennis, basketball and volleyball facilities are on-site whilst walkers and cyclists will find ample routes to explore the countryside!
