An exceptional site in the Dordogne-Périgord to experience camping differently!
Camping in Dordogne : visit the region
Want to go camping in the Dordogne, but the choice of the destination is still uncertain? Divided into 4 large territories that are the purple perigord (vineyards), the green perigord (forest), the white perigord (limestone cliffs) and the black perigord (dark oak forest), the Perigord is thus associated with colors to highlight its different geographical facets. Moreover, the Dordogne is characterized by its extraordinarily rich territory with its castles, caves, chasms, bastides and medieval cities, classified villages, abbeys and cloisters, fortified churches, its gastronomy, its vineyards, its valleys and ponds ideal for swimming, etc. However, with so many possibilities, it can be a real headache to choose your campsite in Dordogne. To remedy this, Le Moulin de Surier, a campsite in the Périgord Pourpre and close to the Périgord Noir, offers you the opportunity to discover the different facets of the region.
Discover the Purple Perigord
Located in the southernmost part of the Dordogne, the territory of the Purple Perigord is home to cities such as Bergerac as well as villages classified as the most beautiful villages in France. During your stay at the campsite in the Périgord Pourpre, you can count on the multitude of places to see near the Moulin de Surier.
To see and to do in the Purple Perigord near Bergerac:
Visit Bergerac and its surroundings on the banks of the Dordogne
In only 30 minutes from your rental (in a chalet, a mobile home, a villa, in unusual accommodation or in treehouse in the Perigord), go to the discovery of Bergerac! The memory of the barges that used to trade between the Massif Central and Bordeaux, a delicious Renaissance town center and … the ghost of Cyrano de Bergerac!
Speaking of vines… Here, we enjoy a rich palette of wines of 5 colors, 13 AOC, and 12,000 hectares. Among them, we find Monbazillac, Pécharmant, Saussignac, full-bodied reds, fruity rosés, sweet whites… Each tasting has its own set of flavors and aromas, presented by passionate winemakers. Also, let yourself be tempted by a walk in their vineyards, a meeting in the intimacy of their cellars and sometimes a little snack around a good bottle!
