accro-branche en Périgord vert

Let's move!

Come on! Time to move yourself! There is such a wealth of nature to roam, with wild flowers, orchids and bird and wildlife on your doorstep. Then you can have second helpings of foie gras and 'salardaise' potatoes without feeling guilty!

Walking and hiking

Nothing's better than walking in the woods to recharge the batteries. No need to go far to fullfill all your senses, Constantin has landscaped a pathway in the property's wood. This way you are quite sure not to be lost. In the village of La Chapelle-Montmoreau, like almost everywhere in the region, you can enjoy very nice marked pedestrian paths and what about discovering them on mountain bike? Furthermore, we are in the Périgord-Limousin regional national park, that is marked with 2000km of paths you can roam on foot, on a bike or on a horse. Maps and guides are available in tourism offices. Here are a few links to find out more :

Brantôme Police Horses
