"Wild Camp" in the heart of nature

Far away from the pressures, you literally cannot see your "Wild Camp" nature camp spot through the trees!
This is a Campspace site!
"Wild Camp" Nature camp in its purest form
With your tent in the big forest in an idyllic spot among wild animals such as deer, roe deer and foxes. Or on the large lake dam close to the river with gently rippling water so you can paddle and dive into the lake. Or along the waterfront on one of the banks of the lake among the bushes and bamboo with lots of privacy. That's "Wild Camp" nature camp in its purest form and it's all possible on the holiday domain "Le Domaine du Moulin Neuf 1605" which is characterised by small scale with respect for peace, space and, of course, nature!
"Wild Camp" Nature camp is not camping
The holiday domain "Le Domaine du Moulin Neuf 1605" is not a campsite or a large holiday resort but something in between in a beautiful historical location with a large natural lake, a river (Le Périgord) and large forests. You spend the night in your own tent on the holiday domain, in the woods or on the waterfront, where you are offered a number of practical facilities such as sanitary facilities and leisure facilities.
On the holiday domain "Le Domaine du Moulin Neuf 1605", there are a number of designated "Wild Camp" nature camp pitches. The pitches have a natural location, in the woods, on the dam or along the banks. Small in size but nice and spacious, which is precisely what gives more peace and privacy! The number of "Wild Camp" nature camp pitches present is limited to just 7, divided into 5 zones over 25ha of domain land, and every effort is made to provide guests with as much space as possible.
"Wild Camp" Nature camp with good facilities
Cosy and safe "wild camp" nature camp on the holiday domain "Le Domaine du Moulin Neuf 1605" with still a bit of comfort. Basic sanitary facilities are available and are located in the beautiful "Maison de Maître". The sanitary facilities consist of a toilet with washbasin and a hot shower with water from our own spring. It is shared sanitary facilities with the other "Wild Camp" and "Camper Space" visitors on the holiday domain but this is usually not a problem. In addition, a washing machine and dryer are provided for a fee. Of course, you should bear in mind that the sanitary facilities are not right next to your tent and you have to walk a bit to go to the toilet or shower. The "Wild Camp" nature camp pitches on the dam and along the banks of the lake are the shortest by the "Maison de Maître" but still you easily walk about 150 metres to reach the toilet and shower.
If you go "Wild Camp" nature camp in the woods of the holiday domain, you will soon have to walk some 1000 metres to visit the toilet and shower but then it really is "Wild Camp" nature camp. Guests who use the "Wild Camp" nature camp pitches in the woods are allowed to dig their own little hole in the ground and do their needs there as they should in the wild. Many small streams with clean and drinkable water flow through the forests, which is very nice to have close to your tent.
Because you will be camp in the wild and have some basic facilities available on the Domaine du Moulin Neuf 1605 holiday park, it is nice in the summer to have a fridge/freezer to keep your barbecue meat, bottle of wine or ice cream cool. For "Wild Camp" nature campers who appreciate it, we have a shared fridge in the "Maison de Maître" available for you to use for a small fee.
"Wild Camp" Nature camp and recreation
Nature camp or wild camp is, in respect, already a form of recreation, you seek the peace and space in the middle of free nature to relax and completely come to yourself by becoming one with nature! Yet it is nice if there is something more than just that. To help you enjoy the peace and space, it is nice to know that you can swim and fish in natural waters. There is a river "Le Périgord" with a waterfall where you can paddle and the children can play. There are plenty of woods where you can walk and cycle for hours, finally there is a campfire place for cosy evenings under the open sky to enjoy a snack, a drink and a good conversation with other guests.
