Things to see and do
There are plenty of things to see and do, and places to visit, within a short distance of Le Paradis campsite including:
- Maison Forte de Reignac – This mysterious castle was built in the cliff face in the 14th Century and is the last intact castle of its kind in France. Larger than it appears from the front, there are many rooms and corridors built way back into the cliff. Many of the rooms are filled with period furnishings, giving you a real feel of how it would have been throughout history. Those with an interest in the more horrific side of life in and around a castle will love the exhibition of torture. Located within the castle you’ll find this interesting exhibit featuring in excess of 60 authentic torture instruments, paintings and engravings depicting the horrifying art of torture through the ages.
- La Roque St Christophe – A short trip 2km down the La Vezere river will lead you to La Roque St Christophe. This half a mile long cliff face is now classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is quite remarkable. The limestone wall was worn away over the centuries creating caves and these caves have been used for over 50000 years as shelter by a variety of inhabitants, up until only a few centuries ago. During the middle ages it was used as a citadel to provide defence against enemies. A climb up the steps to the original entrance is truly awe inspiring and the actual scale of the caves is unbelievable. With La Roque St Christophe being a stones throw from Le Paradis campsite it’s well worth taking the time to visit.
- Chateau de Hautefort – The original Chateau was built in the middle ages with the first owner thought to be Guy de Lastours in the year 1000. The Chateau was reconstructed in the 17th century into more of a leisure Chateau as it was not required to be as heavily fortified. During the mid 19th Century the formal gardens were landscaped into the impressive range of gardens you can see today. The Chateau itself is a vast and impressive building with so many rooms, it can take quite some time to explore them all. Within the variety of rooms you’ll discover a huge range of art, furniture and antiquities from the 17th and 18th centuries. The Chateau is open daily from April to October and the entry prices are also very reasonable.
- Gouffre de Proumeyssac – The Gouffre de Proumeyssac is a beautiful and magical system of caves which are located near to the town of Le Bugue. Discovered in 1907, the caves offer visitors the chance to see how nature works its magic over the millennia to create something special and wonderful. Access to the caves is either via a stairway or for those who wish to pay a little extra, via a gondola which comes down from above. The gondola is great but just be prepared that there is a light show at the start of the tour in which you’ll become one of the major features! Once you enter the caves there are a number of galleries, the most impressive of which is called the “Crystal Cathedral” where you’ll find a vast number of stalagmites, stalactites and monoliths. The Gouffre de Proumeyssac is open daily from February until December each year.
