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".
