Campsite information

Camping L'Echo du Malpas

A small, green campsite situated beside the Dordogne, a perfect choice for an active holiday. The name of camping L'Echo du Malpas came about because the river flows very quickly here and so it was a difficult passage for the barges, hence the name 'mal pas'.

Recommended by our region specialist

"Small and tidy family campsite in a lovely setting directly along the Dordogne river which is not far from Argentat. Great play areas for children."
