Camping in nature - an unspoiled environment in Dordogne

What's better than setting up camp at a campsite surrounded by nature to explore the Dordogne, a department is the very essence of "nature holidays"? Rivers flow through the limestone hills. The woods change colours every season. The vineyards show promises of many convivial moments. In Périgord, the whole realm of nature awaits you!

The Dordogne is one of the largest departments in France. Leave the main road behind you and take the smaller, lesser-known roads into the countryside and through its peaceful forests. At any moment, you may discover a deer crossing the road or see the sun rays piercing through the trees.  

In this part of France, the climate has helped create a wide diversity of landscapes and protected biodiversity. Camping surrounded by nature in this area will be a great opportunity to spend some time in the Biosphere Reserve of Dordogne. A biosphere's official definition says that they are places to learn about the protection of the environment and sustainability which means these nature reserves are like workshops for a more responsible future and, obviously, preserved areas. Wouldn’t a camping pitch for your tent or caravan be a perfect base to discover just that? Or book accommodation on site such as a mobile home overlooking the river or a cabin up in the trees and your campsite in nature will become the place to wake up to birdsong and go to sleep listening to the water flowing down river.
