Healthy active holidays in the heart of nature
Nature makes Périgord a huge playground. On foot along the Vézère River which boards the campsite, put your trainers on and walk the 8,000 km of marked hiking paths of the department, it is heaven for nature enthusiasts … From the Le Paradis campsite, lots of hiking paths are easily accessible. Either for your morning walk or run, the choice is yours... For example you can head towards the Côte de Jor to admire the viewpoint by passing through the beautiful oak forest; or head towards Sergeac, the village of Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère, Plazac or the tops of Tursac.
Nice panorama for hiking!
Do you like cycling? You are in the perfect place! Gé and Ellen Kusters, the owners of the campsite, are mad about two wheels.

Do you like challenges? There is a great chance they will come with you, as they are regular cyclists!

The river is navigable with canoes and kayak (available for rental on site, with equipment and transport to bring you back from downstream), however it is forbidden to use motorboats: it is a date between you and the ducks, the herons and the fishes. From the ampsite, you can navigate towards Roque-Saint-Christophe, a troglodytic fortress and a cliff that falls
