If you choose to go camping in Perigord, and more precisely in Perigord Vert and Perigord - Limousin Park, you'll see that many towns are also renowned for their local expertise. It is the case for the area's main city, Nontron, for instance. An ancient Celt oppidum, it later became a Gallo-Roman castrum, then a fortress during the Middle Ages - unfortunately, only some remparts remain. Nontron is still worth visiting though for it has becomes specialized in the ancient craft of making knives. These are now famous far beyond the borders of Dordogne.
Apart from the knives, Nontron also puts on several exhibitions on handicrafts and other artistic careers.
Pleasant campgrounds dot the Nature Park. You can stay at a campsite of Perigord in a caravan, tent, campervan, mobile home or cottage.
