A campsite at 15 minutes from Sarlat
Set in the green and natural scenery of the countryside in Sainte-Nathalène, a small village in Dordogne located six kilometres from Sarlat la Canéda, the environment of camping La Palombière boasts many important tourist sites.
Sarlat is obviously one of the most beautiful villages of France. Medieval alleys and half-timbered houses attract each year thousands of visitors, as well as its Cathedral and its former Bishop's Palace.
The Dordogne has also many other charming villages similar to Sarlat la Canéda. Among these, we mention La Roque Gageac, on the banks of the Dordogne. This river flows in the middle of a beautiful valley with rolling landscapes today occupied by remarkable castles. The best known are those of Castelnaud la Chapelle and Vitrac, both located at 20 km from the campsite.
Finally, if the Dordogne is famous for its castles, it is also a region that has many prehistoric sites, like the Lascaux Cave, the most famous prehistoric cavity of France. This cave is decorated with paintings dating from 18 to 15 000 years AD. It is closed to the public to protect these treasures, but it is possible to visit a carbon copy replica in the town of Montignac, no more than half an hour by car from the campsite La Palombière.
