Soleil Plage is a pretty holiday park in the Dordogne region and will appeal to those looking for a small and friendly park with direct access to a river. This park has been given a 4 star rating and provides a good standard of accommodation and facilities.
The swimming pools provide the centre piece of the park. Two of the pools are for the whole family to enjoy splashing around in, one of which has two waterslides. There is also a separate plunge pool and a small river with stream. The third pool is for children and provides a shallow and safe place for them to enjoy the water.
Local attractions in this area are plentiful. We recommend a trip to Les Jardins de Marqueyssac which are some of the best kept gardens in France. Chateau Castelnaud is also within easy reach and is the most popular chateau in southern France.
