Charming Stone House In The Perigord Limousin Regional Park

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,152 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Surrounded by typically French countryside, with many tourist attractions nearby

The house is located in the Limousin region of France, near the borders with the Dordogne and Charente, and is within the 'Parc Naturel Limousin Perigord'. Champagnac-la-Rivière is a small typically French village that has a bakers (+ some provisions), Dinos which is a bar/restaurant/pizzeria, and 'La Gare' which is a newly opened French resturant in the converted old Champagnac railway station. Other shops and supermarkets (+ banks) are in the surrounding villages (typically 3 miles away). An old railway line (Voie Verte) is at the top of the village and is now a 9 mile paved cycle route linking the neighbouring villages, so you can easily get to them without taking the car. There are also plenty of bars and restaurants in the neighbouring villages. There are many nearby swimming lakes with beaches, fishing and sports facilities. There is a very small market in the village on Tuesdays but an excellent market covering many streets on Wednesday at Piégut-Pluviers in the Dordogne only a half hour drive away.

About Nick Allen

We acquired our beautiful house in France a few years ago and rent it out, not for huge profits, but just to let others appreciate it and to help towards its upkeep.

We love France and spend as much time there ourselves as time allows and plan to retire there too.

Nick Allen purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Nick Allen chose Champagnac-la-Rivière

Recent guest comments:

“The house, weather and location were lovely. A well equipped kitchen, very comfortable sitting room, and gorgeous terrace made our stay in Champagnac La Riviere a truly happy and relaxing one. It was great to have the boulangerie and bar nearby, too. (We were lucky enough to be around for the fete and were treated to a magnificent firework display on the last night!) Although we all brought bikes, the owners were kind enough to let us borrow theirs which came in handy, as one of our party damaged his own bike. A brilliant area for cycling, especially for families, as there is a network of very safe cycle paths, which we rode on most days.” A brilliant time was had by all, many thanks.'You home is lovely, Everything we needed was there.Very well thought out for an enjoyable stay'

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is lovely; a great location, very spacious and very well appointed. A real home from home! The people in the village are very friendly and I can thoroughly recommend Dino's bar in the village for a great homemade pizza and good wine.

There is lots to see and do in the area; great walks, lovely villages and some good swimming lakes that are either fun or relaxing depending on what you prefer to do. Especially if you have children, Saint Estephe is worth a visit or several, being a 20 minute drive away. It has a great beach with cafe, free kayaking and a play area.

All in all, a brilliant holiday had by all in our family, thank you Stuart and Nick!

  • 4 of 5

Great place. Clean tidy and welcoming. Owner very responsive on email. Turning up on a Sunday late is difficult in France for basics so maybe milk bread etc a small fridge pack would have been great. But warm and cosy with a great log burner. Good stay - a good price with all included.
