Did you say PRL?

Not a campsite or mobile homes, but a park of chalets in the middle of the forest.
Our residential leisure park has more than enough to keep you dreaming!

" Castelwood is a holiday village in the Dordogne.
We are classified as a PRL, or Parcs Résidentiels de Loisirs.
But what does that mean? We'll explain! "

PRL: definition

Residential leisure parks and campsites are classified as open-air hotels. However, there are a number of differences between these two types of establishment. The first is in the type of accommodation: a campsite will offer mobile homes, bare pitches or areas for motorhomes or caravans.
A PRL will consist solely of "light leisure accommodation"; this may be mobile homes, but in our case it's wooden chalets.

A campsite will usually also offer a wide range of entertainment. We offer you peace and quiet! 

How our housing stock works

Castelwood is the perfect balance between independence and conviviality. You have the keys to your chalet and, just as if you were renting a gîte, you are completely autonomous. However, some services are shared: the swimming pool, barbecues, library corner, or large tables for eating with your neighbours. This way, your children can always find friends during their holidays. And for you, it means peace and quiet!

Our PRL is made up of wooden chalets

Honestly, talking about PRL takes away from the magic of the place. Castelwood is a village of cottages, all built by the former owners who originally created the estate. Our cottages are like little houses you could live in all year round. They're fully equipped, with quality mattresses and comfy sofas for cosy evenings.

Our gîte village is eco-responsible. It blends in with nature, becoming one with the forest.
