The park is strewn with fruit trees and fragrant bushes, wild orchids, walnut orchard, roses, lily of the valley, wisteria and fruit trees. Or choose to accompany us on a walk with the goats and sheep, we'll see dragonflies and butterflies.

In the heart of Green Périgord, trekkers have a wide choice of routes to follow, and cyclists will be charmed by the rolling hills of the region where bell towers indicate a wide array of villages nestled in the valleys.
