The Blâme (French: le Blâme), is a small river in the region of Aquitaine in France. It is 6.1 kilometres (3.8 mi) long. It flows entirely within the department of Dordogne.[1]

Geography[edit]

The Blâme is a tributary of the Auvézère river.[1] It empties into the Auvézère slightly east of the commune of La Boissière-d'Ans with a small waterfall near La Forge d'Ans.[2] Its source is the spring Puits de Bontemps, 1.5 km south of Brouchaud.

The Blâme has one tributary, the small river Soue (also called Lassoue).[3] The two rivers join at the village of Brouchaud.
