"Sometimes nature and man work together to compose a masterpiece. This is the case of Brantôme, the loveliest and most enchanting small town in Perigord. In this dream, the monks built an admirable and powerful Abbey whose tower dominates the valley. " André Maurois of the French Academy.

Today Gate Limousin Regional Natural Park and jewel of the valley of Dronne Brantôme open all year for nature lovers and "eating well".

On the old town of Saint-Julien-de-Bourdeilles today attached to Brantôme-en-Périgord:

Quiet village of Brantômois, located off the main roads, Saint-Julien is crossed by the GR 36 which joins the Channel to the Mediterranean (1000 km).
