The capital of Périgord Vert and its surroundings is adorned with the first colors of spring. Between strolls and outdoor and indoor discoveries, let’s take out the knives and go on a picnic …

Around Nontron, the region does not miss strolls and the spring is the ideal period to discover other colors than the well-named Périgord Vert. Especially as the ideas of outings are not lacking. At a more regulating pace than the runners of the Trail of Grands Couteliers, walkers will cross the old railway and the many small hiking trails.

When the time comes, a solid picnic of South West products will be appreciated. Nontron knives will be on hand, including the rainbow folding knife, multicolored acrylic ball handle, easy to maintain. This object perfectly sums up the Nontron spirit: a traditional form (the ball handle) associated with contemporary materials.

Cutlery and crafts put forward

The colors of spring are inviting even in the Nontronnaise cutlery shop.

After this country trip, return to the Perigord city and pass in front of the Nontronnaise cutlery shop which has changed its window to the colors of spring. Multicolored paper flowers dot the displays, further enhancing the blades of Périgord. If Nontron is a cutlery town, the other crafts are put forward at the Experimental Pole of Art of Nontron and Périgord-Limousin (PEMA) which exposes the most beautiful crafts creations of the region to the occasion of the Competition Workshops of Art of France. Ceramist, glass artist, ironworker, milliner, instrumental factor … If the exhibition will run from March 23 to April 29 in Nontron, a regional prize will be awarded Wednesday, March 22.

The same day, a few hours before these festivities return outdoors to Piégut-Pluvier for the World Water Day. Exhibitions, models, photos and videos, quizzes and gifts … All day, the public will be made aware of the issues of respect for the environment around the ponds.

Spring returned, Nontron and Périgord Vert know how to pay tribute to nature.
