the campsites around Nontron and in the Périgord Vert

The Périgord Vert (the Green Périgord) stretches along the top of the Dordogne, at the crossroads of the departments Charente and Limousin.

Many rivers, like the Dronne, Isle, Auvézère or Bandiat meander through its green and wooded landscape. The Périgord – Limousin Nature Park was created in order to protect this natural heritage. The diversity of its gently undulating hills lend themselves particularly to walking and cycling. The Park is also a land of tradition and dotted with many villages of authentic charm. Among these, Saint-Jean-de-Côle deserves a visit, all the more since it is also classified as one of the "Most Beautiful Villages of France".


The Perigord Vert and the Perigord - Limousin Park are also renowned for their local expertise. Nontron, for instance, has becomes specialized in the ancient craft of making knives. These are now famous far beyond the borders of the Dordogne. Apart from the knives, Nontron also puts on several expositions on handicrafts and other artistic careers.

Pleasant campgrounds dot the Nature Park and you can choose for a stay in a caravan, tent, campervan, mobile home or cottage.
