About us

Welcome, bienvenue

Anne & Glenn (Jayne’s mum and dad), Russ & Jayne

We are a small family business, run by Russ and Jayne, deep in the heart of the rural Dordogne. We have owned the site since 2014 after moving from Yorkshire for a quieter life – we absolutely love our little corner of the French countryside.

We’ve managed to adopt a few animals along the way as well including our four rescue horses (Seb, Lily, Fleur and Scarlett), our two rescue cats Fifi and Louis, as well as our two wonderful dogs Gus and Bubba.

La Tournerie is a small and family run caravan site exclusively for adults, providing a relaxed and peaceful environment for you to enjoy your holiday.  We welcome guests with dogs, and we have very spacious fenced pitches that allow you to enjoy your own secure space.

Set within 25 acres of our own land with sweeping views over the beautiful Dordogne countryside, we can provide you with the ideal base to enjoy the relaxing and tranquil environment.  If you like to explore, there are plenty of fantastic places to visit in the surrounding area.

Please take a look through our site for more information and feel free to contact us if you have any other questions – we’re always happy to help.

The magic of La Tournerie

La Tournerie is all about enjoying your holiday in peace and quiet. The site enjoys almost complete silence and has wide open views of the surrounding area. The fact that we generally only allow adults on the site means that this peace and tranquility is maintained at all times. 

If you’ve had enough of the peace and quiet and want to be a little more adventurous we have hundreds of kilometres of secluded trails right on our doorstep ideal for nature lovers, walkers, mountain bikers and 4×4’ers alike! If you prefer the water, you can take a kayak from nearby Montignac and navigate down the Vézère for an afternoon on the river, before returning to La Tournerie for a well earned rest.

To recharge, feel free to walk through our orchard in which we grow cherries, apples, pears and plums as well as blackberries and sloes. Our guests are more than welcome to help themselves to, if the fruit is ready!

A rich and diverse history

The Dordogne’s rich cultural history is well known. All in the same day, you can explore ancient cave dwellings and chateaus peppering the hillsides with their beautifully manicured gardens, then browse some of France’s best local produce at one of it’s ancient food markets before dining at a local restaurant on some of the Dordogne’s famous culinary treats.
