Places to discover around the campsites in the Perigord Vert
Nontron and its surroundings are very popular with nature and culture lovers. The Regional Natural Park Périgord - Limousin was created to protect the natural heritage of this part of France, and a stay at a campsite is a great way to explore this beautiful area. The gently undulating hills are perfect for hiking and biking with your family, partner or friends. Go for a picnic along the river or in the forest, made up of fresh local products bought at the weekly farmer’s market. The Dordogne is known for its quaint hamlets and villages. Many deserve a visit and Saint-Jean-de-Côle is certainly one of them, classified as one of the "Most Beautiful Villages of France", stroll past the timber framed house and visit Marthonie castle with its 12th century towers overlooking the village main square. Take a moment to imagine yourself back in the Middle Ages. Why not take advantage during your holiday in the Dordogne to discover the charming village of Brantôme or Saint-Pardoux-la-Rivière? Stroll through the streets of these picturesque villages and stop for a drink or an ice cream with the children on the village square before heading back to your campsite in the Perigord Vert for a refreshing swim and splash at the pool at the end of the afternoon. The choice is yours!
If you choose to go camping in the Perigord, and more precisely in Perigord Vert – visit Nontron and discover the traditional craft of knifemaking for which Nontron is renowned well beyond the its borders. Originally an ancient Celt oppidum, it later became a Gallo-Roman castrum, then a fortress during the Middle Ages – of which a few ramparts remain. But it’s the local arts and crafts that form the focal point of the town and its galleries, workshops and exhibitions are well worth a visit.
