L'Echo du Malpas

France - Corrèze - Argentat

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'.

  • This area between Argentat and Beaulieu is a true paradise for trout fishermen.
  • You can take a canoe trip along the river but, for something more original, try a trip downstream in one of the wooden barges known locally as a 'gabare'. These were used in the past for transporting freight.
